Cora + Alana: 12.31.2016 (JX Venue, Stillwater)

Great Gatsby! On New Year’s Eve to boot! Cora and Alana are such sweet and eloquent souls… they were one of the first couples to book our JX Venue before construction even started. In their wedding attire, we re-created the picture we posted when they first toured JX leaning back against two windows in the dining room.

This was an incredible day filled with amazing details, decor, and even pinspot lighting on the ostrich feather centerpieces. Cora and Alana had custom champagne chalices and one of my favorite images is the closing image / toast from the Bourbon room. We had a super special mix of liquids in the glasses… 🙂 Check out the first glance images below – lots of anticipation with holding hands on either side of the curtain – so fun!

Thank you Cora and Alana for bringing the fun and energy to JX on New Years Eve – it was so awesome to celebrate with you and enjoy the images and slideshow below! – Judd and Josh

Rice Park never looked so good – even at 7 degrees! We didn’t have much time to enjoy it with below zero windchill but Kellie and Hank still lost their winter coats for the ending spin shots! For a quaint and intimate ceremony in the winter, Como Conservatory is a brilliant oasis of humidity, flowers, and trees that can’t be beat. It was so fun to capture your quaint and intimate ceremony, Kellie and Hank. Thank you for letting us be a part of it – especially the bacon wrapped scallops! 🙂 – Judd and Josh

Mike and Amy are the rare couple that we didn’t need to pose much at all – they were doing naturally what looks really great: lifting, kissing at the right time, not kissing at the right time, drinking the champagne of beers (haha)! That’s why their rings were perched on the Miller High Life bottles. 🙂

The was a blur of a day since it was a Friday and we started a little later, but the weather was amazing – but not as amazing as Amy’s shoes! And I about had a sugar coma for all the delectable treats; see the image of the chocolate bacon mini cupcake below. 🙂

Thanks Mike and Amy for an awesome whirlwind of a day! – Judd and Josh

This was an amazing day with an amazingly fun group of people! The bridesmaids dresses were to die for, there was gorgeous weather, amazingly vibrant fall colors, awesome creative time in a really awesome school bus (with lots of open drinks…). We spotted a couple locations that we had never shot before like the large rock wall which yielded some great images. Thanks you Mindy and Stoddard for letting us capture your day – enjoy the images! -Judd and Josh

FUN FROM THE START – the slideshow below starts with dancing to “Fireball.” Many times Josh and I were confused at timing because everyone was dancing and we had tons of creative images BEFORE the trip to the ceremony.

We had so much creative fun with this crew: from corn stalks to bubushka wraps/kilts to slippers to garter Fireball holsters to donut-abras to super creative decor by Wendy! to Toy Soldiers, this wedding was a blast from the first minute. Thanks Becky and Ryan for being so great, being up for anything, and bringing an awesome group of family and friends to JX! ILYATWUTJAATWDTTLATS! – Judd and Josh 🙂

These pictures are phenomenal. I don’t know how we are ever going to narrow down our choices. What a really fun day. You guys were the best to work with!

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!)
