When Amelia first reached out to me about photographing her and Blake’s summer wedding at Abella Weddings & Events, I was super excited! Abella is an all white barn with high ceilings and beautiful chandeliers tucked away in Chisago City, only about a half hour from where I live in Taylors Falls. After talking with her and Blake and learning more about how they met at school as athletes at Liberty University and how they were looking forward to a special celebration with their friends and family, I was sold! Because they don’t currently live in Minnesota, I wasn’t able to meet them in person until their wedding day. We immediately felt comfortable with each other and they rocked the camera the whole day! Amelia’s vision of soft, summery, and elegant wedding at Abella really came to life and her choices complimented the venue so well. The white and blush flowers from Flowers with Flair, the champagne colored bridesmaid dresses from Show Me Your Mumu, and the handbuilt cross made by her grandfather at the ceremony were such nice touches. And of course their sweet family and friends who made all parts of the day extra special – from praying over Amelia as she got in her dress, the heartfelt readings and hymns sung at their ceremony, and the special speeches given at the reception. Amelia and Blake were truly made for each other. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Preston!
