Joe and Shannon | Maple Plain Backyard Wedding

CouplesAmanda MohinaniComment

Shannon was a little bit nervous; the day was busy and overwhelming. She couldn't wait to get into her dress, because she knew exactly what would come next - seeing her man. When she finally caught a glimpse of him among the trees waiting for her - she breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that she would never have to say goodbye again. Joe is the epitome of relaxed, and his wedding day was no different. He handled the details and schedule like it was a breeze, but something was missing from his smile - his girl. As he anxiously waited for her among the trees - he breathed in the moment, knowing that today she would finally be his.

-------

I feel like I've known them forever. Shannon was a homeschool friend growing up, and Joe and I met through my oldest sister, Mel. These people love Jesus so so much, and they've both become like family to me. Let's just say I was THRILLED when they asked me to photograph their wedding! People ask me if I ever regret photographing friends' weddings; if I feel like I don't get to enjoy it as much... never! I loved experiencing the day along side of them and I loved being able to capture it more fully because I understand them so well! :)

 

Shannon got ready at her parents house - surrounded by her besties.

Shannon's dress was exquisite - and it fit her personality so well! Simple, elegant, and fun. :)

Joe and his family (the Timm's) make meat the best way possible - in the SMOKER! (No joke... I started drooling....)

Joe's dad owns a family run sawing and lumber business. (You may even recognize it from the photos I took last year!)Β Since the shop is right outside their home, the guys decided it would be super manly to get ready out there.

Here's how cool God is: There was a chance of rain ALL of afternoon and I was so worried we'd have to do pictures inside! Well, the minute we got done with pictures, it started raining. I was SO thankful!
