Rachel and Kyle were married at Blackberry Ridge Golf Course near their home located in Sartell, Minnesota. It was the perfect wedding venue to host them and their closest friends and family. They honestly were just excited and ready to be husband and wife, so the wedding day was simply a fun way to celebrate that. They didn’t get lost in planning or stressing over details, and they enjoyed every second they had together. They are such an inspiration to all couples currently planning a wedding and I was honored to be there for it all.
By all, I mean the wedding day plus the adventurous engagement session we shared the summer prior in Phoenix Arizona where Kyle previously proposed to Rachel. Aside from the 109 degree day, we had a great time reminiscing about that special moment and enjoyed taking in the beautiful views of Lookout Mountain. HERE IS A PEAK at that fun, hot day!!
As for the wedding day, we started with the sweetest first look before meeting up with family and friends for wedding party photos and family portraits. Then we enjoyed the golf course views as Rachel and Kyle exchanged rings and vowed to love each other until the end of time. Following the ceremony everyone shared laughs, stories, drinks and dinner before heading outdoors for the first dance under twinkling lights. Oh and I can’t forget the ice cream truck…I think that was even more popular than the open bar!!
“October 8th, 2021 we finally became husband and wife. 13 years ago we started our journey together and saying ‘I do’ brought all the feelings we could have ever imagined. We are two best friends that now get to call each other husband and wife. People always tell you the day flies by and to enjoy it. They seriously are not joking. Remember to slow down and take it all in. Don’t run down the aisle, but take your time soaking in that special moment. Cherish that 3 minute first dance where no one is congratulating you and have that moment to each other. We are so excited to be able to look back on our special day with not only the amazing photos Xsperience Photography took, but the video we received as well!! Also, you can never go wrong with an ice cream truck for dessert!”Rachel & Kyle
