Nathan + Jillian: 10.21.16 (First Baptist Church and JX Venue)

Nate and Jillian had just a spectacular day today! Jillian shed a little tear when she saw the room decor all set up from Camrose Hill – it was a close match to the styled shoot we did for JX before we opened – Nordic winter themed. The ceremony was at a quaint baptist church in Hudson and we took the limo bus to a park that overlooked the St. Croix Valley – including the church where they were married. It was amazingly picturesque with all the fall colors.

Some other fun images were of the cutest flower girl ever pulling back the curtain at JX and tugging on Jillian’s dress. Nate and Jillian have such big hearts – they played a video and had dancing socks out for their favorite cause and charity which included the story of how they met. Thanks for including us in your wedding day! – Judd and Josh

Cam + Kari: 10.01.2016 (Stillwater Library and JX Venue)

So this was quite the day… I’ve never seen a wedding party have so much fun and be so complimentary at the same time to the bride and groom. This was a festive group of family and friends and the dog/ring picture even made it on the welcome table! 🙂

We had just a beautiful day and setting at the Stillwater Public Library for Kari and Cam’s ceremony. We love long veils for dramatic shots! But they sure do tend to be taken off the bride very quickly. 🙂 We stopped at Pioneer Park and it was just jammed up with people so we made a quick stop for a super unique image of the bridal party on the backside of the band shell – love that image! It was also Harvest Fest in town so we stopped and had an impromptu first dance with the band down by the river.

It was so fun to see so many old connections back to North High School, and to spend so much time with this awesome couple over the last year or so – congrats Kari and Cam and thanks for having us be a part of your day! – Judd, Breanna, Cory, and Jake (video coming soon!)

Brent + Sue: 09.09.2016 (The Loft at Studio J)

Sue and Brent are just the coolest couple – every time I approached Sue she stopped and introduced me to who she was talking to. It was just a small thing but spoke loudly about how they care for the people with whom they surround themselves. Old-school hospitality goes a long way! 🙂 Sue had some custom pink Chuck Taylors and just a gorgeous dress that didn’t quite have a hanger that works so we used the chandelier at The Loft!

Among our favorite images below are some exquisite images at JX (on the bar and in stairwell) with the tilt-shift lens. Good thing Brent loved Grain Belt Premium. 🙂 The ring-bearer had a “ring security” briefcase; it’s not often that you see totally new ideas in this Pinterest world but that briefcase was a new one. Thanks Brent and Sue for being so cool and chill and celebrating your wedding at The Loft with us! -Judd and Josh

Décor-apalooza!!! Jennifer has such amazing attention to detail – it’s hard to find a place to start…  There were locks with messages, doorknobs, skeleton keys, flags, pictures, family unity sand, and much much more!  She even had Brian pick up the skeleton keys across the country on his traveling for work.

We had some cute flower girls chanting and amazing day at both Trellis and Pioneer Park before getting the part started at The Loft – congrats Jennifer and Brian it was so fun to be a part of your wedding day (planking and loitering and all)! 🙂 – Judd and Josh

Succulents! Such awesome décor for Marisa and Jeremy’s wedding today – we got some super cool ring shots on the succulents at the end of a marvelous night. They chose a very cool stop at Lift Bridge Brewery that was a fantastic idea – nothing like a little Farm Girl Saison in the middle of a wedding day… Marisa and Jeremy chose to have their wedding at JX due to a very special meaning and super cool story:

Thanks for having us as part of your wedding day you two! – Judd and Josh

Ben + Molly: 08.12.2016 (JX Venue, Stillwater, MN)

Rain! I think that old saying “Rain on your wedding day makes for a prosperous relationship” was to make people feel better on a rainy wedding day, but maybe it’s true?! Ben and Molly and their wedding party didn’t mind the rain at all – they jumped in a limo and splashed around for some epic images! By the way, we HIGHLY recommend a limo for creative picture time for a variety of reasons: weather, comfort, drinks, and music just to name a few. And we had a bonus limo dog as well, which was just fantastic. 🙂

We met Ben and Molly when they were in Stillwater (from Texas) as a walk-in one Saturday morning I believe and I gave them an impromptu tour of The Loft and JX Venue. We were so excited that the ended up booking JX and us for photography as well! We had a great time shooting their engagement session in Texas this winter as well – it was a combo of beach cruiser bikes and Johnson Space Center rockets!

Some of my favorite images are below: Lighted ring box, rain splash images, pallet jack, limo dog, the ring on the pretzel bun, and of course what would any wedding with a room full of aerospace engineers be without a rotating STARFIELD.

Thanks for having us a part of your awesome wedding day! And… Don’t stop believin’ (limo song)! 🙂 – Judd and Josh
