BACKYARD MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING, INTIMATE BACKYARD WEDDING, MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Rebecca + Ryan had so many things thrown their way.
It was difficult to plan an event for June 2020. Just at the start of the pandemic, there was still a lot of uncertainly about whether or not they could manage their wedding.
But they stuck it through, and put together a laughter and emotion-filled wedding, taking place at Ryan’s parent’s property. They got dressed in the house, were married in the backyard under a tree, had a reception in the pole barn and dance just outside of it in the sun. Their party was completely about them.
Rebecca taught the flower girl how to give a thumbs-up. They visited Ryan’s late brothers and shared Mountain Dew and prayers to them. They walked down a beautiful aisle down the hill in the backyard and took the most intimate moment alone together right after the ceremony.
These are the moments that make up weddings. These are the stories that matter to tell again and again.
