I pulled a late night to make sure I had time to blog this stunning Hidden Meadow Barn Wedding!  What a gorgeous venue located in the quaint town of Pepin, Wisconsin.  People often ask me if I travel for weddings and the answer is “YES”!  I love to travel and although this wasn’t a very far drive from the cities it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere.  This adorable rustic farm has been lovingly restored by Angela and her husband and it’s no wonder Kayla & Dave thought it would be the perfect venue for them to tie the knot.

Kayla and Dave were the sweetest couple, who put family above all else.  Their wedding day was centered around their children, friends and family.  You could just feel the love burst from all those who surrounded them.

It was a very warm muggy day and we had a few short stints of rain but nothing that took over the day.  During the ceremony the clouds were oh so dark, but our little barn venue in the valley didn’t get touched at all by the storm.  It was as though we had our own little bubble of protection surrounding us during that beautiful emotional ceremony.

It was nearly impossible for me to pick favorites from Kayla & Dave’s wedding day, but this blog post is what I came up with and I hope you love seeing a peek into their heartfelt wedding day!

    Cindy hAider - Love # 2,5,6 & 7. Great photos!

I have been so excited to share this session with you since the night I shot it!  Valerie & Taylor drove over four hours to have their Engagement Photos at St. Croix Vineyards in Stillwater, Minnesota.  Taylor actually proposed to Valerie at a vineyard in California.  So its only fitting they had their session at a Minnesota Vineyard.  I’m so excited to capture their wedding this fall up in Northern Minnesota!

A special thank you to St. Croix Vineyards for letting us use your amazing property for this beautiful sunset vineyard session!

Jessica and Ben were married on a gorgeous spring day!  The wedding took place at Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Hotel.  We started the day getting ready and it was such a fun and relaxed morning.  Jess was going for simple elegance for her day.  She was such an easy going, no fuss kind of gal.  I had a blast hanging out with her friends and family all day.  For the majority of the outdoor photos we went to Centennial Lakes.  We were so lucky because here in Minnesota we get about 1-2 weeks of spring blooms on the trees and it happen to be the weekend of their wedding.  Talk about AMAZING!  It was pretty windy that morning but I loved the effect it created with Jess’s veil.  Best of all she didn’t let it stress her out and we created some super fun photos because of it.

The ceremony was absolutely stunning back at the Hilton, I loved the warm tones of gold and pinks.  I caught Ben looking at her so sweet and lovingly during their vows.   I also loved the fact that Jess incorporated her hispanic heritage into her day.  The mariachi band during the cocktail hour provided lots of fun entertainment.  Everyone was ready to party at the reception after that!  The evening had many touching toasts and special moments.  But the grand finale was when Jessica and Ben wowed us with their first dance.  Enjoy a peak into their wedding day story…
