I’d been following Sami on Instagram for a few years, and when she messaged me about photographing her wedding - my heart skipped a beat! This little blonde beauty is totally a soul sister. She’s passionate about holistic nutrition, yoga and is a total ball of positive energy. 

We kicked off the wedding weekend in Minneapolis on a sunset cruise on Lake Wayzata and it set the tone for the weekend: romantic, windy, a little bit boozy and tons and tons of laughter. Wade and Sami’s wedding day was so classically beautiful, I found myself pinching myself over all of the little details and impeccable taste! They also made Wade’s late brother, Todd’s memory celebrated and remembered, having a special seat at the head table. Todd was a really special young man, who’s courageous battle with cancer over a decade ago inspired so many people in the prairie hockey community to come together for a cause. Everyone who knew him was so touched by it.

The ceremony and reception at Hutton House was packed with laughs and a few roasts. You’ll definitely be able to tell from the pictures. I also have to give SUCH a nod to their wedding planner Ashley, who was unbelievably organized, positive and did I mention she also did the florals? This is insane in the wedding industry - I have no idea how she did it! Anyhoo, enjoy the magic that was Sami & Wade’s blissful wedding day!
