After Cassy and Nate's engagement session a few months ago I knew that their wedding would be something spectacular. Cassy and Nate are one of those couples who just looking at each other makes them smile. It was evident on how in love they were. Then when I learned that their wedding would take place at the new wedding venue, The Outpost Center in Chaska, Minnesota I became even more excited since that is where my husband and I took our engagement photos a year ago!
Cassy and Nate were up for anything which made taking time after they became husband and wife to go explore the woods on the property even more fun! The day began with putting the finishing touches on decorating for the ceremony as well as everyone getting ready in their wedding attire. Cassy and Nate's first look was extremely special as it was evident on how happy they each were to be starting this new chapter in their lives. Cassy also shared a first look with someone else very special in her life, her grandfather. Tears were flowing from those watching.
An overcast sky and some sprinkles of rain didn't keep the bridal party from having some fun during portraits! Thanks to my super awesome second shooter for following me around with an umbrella! After the ceremony, Nate and Cassy explored the some of the 27 acres of property at The Outpost Center - snow, hills, cockleburs and all. It was smart thinking for Cassy to bring her snow boots wink emoticon While we were taking photos, the bridal party, friends and family all helped convert the ceremony location into the most perfect and romantic reception. Beautiful candle and floral centerpieces, and a s'mores bar are were all present. I mean c'mon a S'MORES BAR - genius. Can all weddings please have a s'mores bar? Thanks ;) Then, at the reception the bride and groom did something I have never seen before. Cassy and Nate served soup to their guests. Having humble hearts is what makes their relationship so beautiful.
Thank you Cassy and Nate for letting me photograph such a special day in your lives. I hope you all enjoy the preview of their special day!
