The Mill Site Wedding | September 2021

It always amazes me how God puts people into our lives and I truly believe he puts them in our lives for a reason. When I was pregnant with Logan I would crave my usual coffee and cheese danish, warmed up of course, from Starbucks every morning. I remember one visit in particular was when I met Bethany in the drive thru and instantly noticed her beautiful wedding ring. I couldn't resist complimenting how beautiful it was, little did I know this quick interaction would lead me to capturing her and Jack's wedding a year later. 

This beautiful summer day began at The Mill Site, a charming historical building near downtown Anoka, Minnesota. It was previously a historic business building that was re-modeled into an event space in 2019. The moment I arrived at the venue my eyes were drawn to the arched brickwork and beautiful birch trees shading the path leading to the river. 

As I entered the venue anticipating to see Bethany and her Bridesmaids getting ready I was greeted with family and friends of both Jack and Bethany. With Hershey bars and kisses in their hands, Jack's last name is Hirschi, they were running around working together to get all the decorations set up for the big day. Witnessing such love and energy everyone was putting into their wedding brought such positive vibes for the day and reminded me of my own family. 

While this wedding was so heartfelt and endearing, it was also filled with many laughs! Two of their bridesmaids, Casey and Kenna, did an amazing job with their duo speech during the reception. It was by far the most comical speech I have ever heard. It’s no surprise to me that Bethany and Jack have great friends by their side, they are both such kind and thoughtful people! We may only share one full day together but I always leave feeling like I have made friends and have shared in a small but meaningful part of my client’s special day!! It truly is a dream job!

Bethany and Jack, you two are the sweetest couple! I felt so honored that I was the one who had the opportunity to capture your day for you, your family, and friends to remember forever!! I pray God brings you both an abundance of blessings in your new life together. 
Enjoy some of my favorite images that tell a visual story of their day!!
