Haley + Josh (Backyard Woods)
Our day spent with Haley + Josh for their backyard wedding was nothing short of wonderful! Their relaxed vibe on their wedding day, emulated their relationship to a T - laid back, fun, and FULL of love! When I first met Haley and Josh at their consult over a year ago - I KNEW they were my kind of people, and over the months of planning, engagement sessions, and this wonderful wedding - we have become sweet friends! Haley + Josh met and fell in love, and fought being long distance on and off, while Josh served in the military. They carefully planned their wedding date so all of his military buds could be there for the I Do’s!
The wedding took place at her in laws cabin home near Duluth, MN. Nestled up next to a gorgeous woodland tree line, their home set the perfect backdrop for stunning summer wedding. As friends + family gathered to see their I DO’s, Haley + Josh explored the woods with us - never doubting any wild idea or venture we sent them on for a photo. We got to not only do a first look with the two of them (WHICH WAS THE SWEETEST) but also a silly first look with his Best Man, who wore his mothers dress to give Josh a good old laugh and lighten the mood! Haley, growing up in a hunting home, wanted to incorporate her love for hunting into the decor - using deer sheds from her hunts as decor. It was a treasured past time between her and her father - and we laughed and cried hearing his speech about their special hunting moments together (Haley now shares her love of the sport with Josh as well!) Intimate weddings like this are some of my favorite - from quiet moments in the woods, to a sweet porch first dance, to speeches and tears, this wedding was one for the ages!
We are so excited for Haley + Josh, to see what the future holds for them, and HONORED to have been a part of their wedding moments! Cheers you two!
