Ashley and Eric | Lake Wedding | Southern Minnesota Wedding Photographer

WOW!! What an incredible day for a wedding! Ashley and Eric’s wedding took place on Ashley’s family’s property on the shores of Lake Washington, which has been in their family for generations! We are absolutely thrilled to share this rather large peek into their perfect day! Surrounded by family and friends, enjoying the sunshine and cool breezes, our bride and groom enjoyed their dream wedding day from start to finish!

CONGRATULATIONS, Ashley and Eric!! What a privilege it was to be a part of your wedding day!

How about a perfect setting for a wedding?!! Isn’t it stunning?! And then there’s those sensational florals by T and K Events! WOW!!

A very rich heritage of love and family have given Ashley and Eric a great beginning to their happily ever after!!

So soft and pretty!

A few shots of our bride getting ready!! This mother/daughter duo have the sweetest relationship!


Lucky penny!

Ashley’s something old was a handkerchief used by the brides in her family throughout many years. What a treasure!

All ready to see her groom! What a gorgeous bride!!!

Our handsome groom was ready for the cover of GQ! Love that suit!

On to the first look, that very special moment when our bride and groom see each other for the first time in their bridal day attire!

What an array of emotion!!

So, so happy!

What a stunning couple!

Love this!

Such a radiant bride! It is just so much fun to see that bridal glow throughout the day!

So soft and romantic! If only you could smell it!!

Love this one, too!

Definitely a favorite from the day! Love this so much!

We couldn’t help but include some pics from our time with the family. It is just so neat to see the examples of love that Ashley and Eric have to look up to as they begin their lives together!


These two have 64 years of wisdom to share! Love this!!

Ceremony time!!

These two truly stole the show! Such cuties!!

We loved the reaction of Ashley and her father as they watched those two cuties head down the aisle!!

Here she comes!!

A proud father and his adoring daughter!

What an incredible site for a wedding! And the weather was just perfect!

We just love the sun flare in this pic, shining down on our amazing couple!

Our favorite entrance from the bridal party!

Mr. and Mrs.!!!

The speeches were a great combination of very sweet and very funny!

Another cutie! Look at that face!!

One of our favorite times of the day is when we have a few minutes of time to photograph our couples during the golden, beautiful light a little before sunset! Our time with Ashley and Eric did not disappoint!

How absolutely dreamy!!

Another favorite! Gorgeous!!

First dance of the night!

A little more emotion during the father/daughter dance! So sweet!

We love this pic for two reasons. The first being the look on Eric’s father’s face as he was watching his wife and son. The second being the look on Ashley’s face! Awesome!!
