Darren and Michelle were married back in September on a perfect fall day! It was very much a family affair, as Darren and Michelle’s bridal party consisted solely of Darren’s brothers and Michelle’s sister. What a joy it was to capture their day-both in the small details of getting ready,their first look, their intimate moments together, and the family. Michelle was a wonderful bride to work with. Can you say calm and relaxed!? That was Michelle.
I don’t know how we are so privileged to always work with such wonderful people!
So, going through Darren and Michelle’s photos, I was having a hard time narrowing them down to what to post, so here’s part 1. Part 2 will be posted this weekend and will feature more on the amazing location for their wedding-the Mayowood Stone Barn in Rochester, MN.
Michelle and Darren exchanged gifts that day before seeing one another. Both gave each other new watches. (Michelle also got a lovely bedazzled shirt!)
Awww! Michelle’s dad came in and got his first look at his daughter, all dolled up!
Getting their first look at one another. It was probably one of the best moments of the day for me! They are so cute together!
This location had such beautiful grounds for photos, not to mention a beautiful bride, too!
Can you find Michelle’s “something blue?”
The amazing maid of honor, Jessica, and the best men, Rob and Justen.
Obviously they were a great bridal party!

We can’t forget Darren’s family, too!
Darren’s grandmother was absolutely adorable!
One of my favorite photos of our time before the ceremony!
Stay tuned to the blog this weekend for another post of Darren and Michelle’s wedding-their heart-warming ceremony and rockin’ reception!
