Woods Chapel Wedding | Minnesota Wedding Photographer
This Woods Chapel wedding in Orono, Minnesota took place on a perfect June day. You may remember this joyful couple, Greg and Makayla from their autumn engagement session last fall; their reception actually took place on the same property!
We started the day at The Woods Chapel. It’s hard to pick a favorite aspect of that venue! The bridal room is beautifully lit and has such romantic charm. The bridge over the pond is the perfect place for a couple’s first look, and the outdoor ceremony area provides such a beautiful atmosphere. I love the way the couple is placed in front of the weeping willow and pond, and how the sunlit filters through the trees. The guests are comfortably nestled in an outdoor amphitheater-type space, surrounded by nature as they beautiful music, heartfelt messages and vows exchanged.
For the reception, we headed to the bride’s family property, which was completely decked out in chic decor, enormous peonies, french hours e’overs and twinkle lights. I was basically in photographer heaven! G&M planned their reception to be very laid-back and it was clear their guests were truly enjoying themselves. I snuck them away for about 10 minutes and we captured some gorgeous golden hour photos, right at the top of the hill! We ended the night with some epic sparkler photos. First, they grabbed a groomsman and Makayla’s personal attendant to create a photo spelling out “LOVE” with sparklers. Next, they grabbed a handful of guests and we lined the gravel trail to give them a truly spectacular sparkler sendoff.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bozoian!
