September 6, 2014 was the perfect day. Not a cloud in the sky, sunshine for days & abundant love. They first laid eyes on each other in college. Matt was a football player who caught Whitney’s eye. They were in love since that moment. Their dedication, affection & love for one another is palpable. Their aura is pure, genuine & sweet. Not to mention they are model beautiful… I mean for real.
They married in the lovely small town of Glenwood, MN on Lake Minnewaska. Their ceremony was at the Glenwood Lutheran Church, followed by a Lakeside Ballroom reception. Whitney has an eye for detail as she is lives in the creative world (which I simply adore about her). Every little detail was carefully planned, put together & executed perfectly. From the place card display to the centerpieces, every detail was every bit of Whitney & Matt.
After they said their vows, they were off on a golf cart to board a boat cruise for cocktail hour. After they made their grand entrance to Lakeside Ballroom, they each welcomed their guests in their own special way. I specifically remember one thing that Matt said about his blushing bride. I remember it clear as day & it’s a true testament to their love for one another. “I have never felt the feelings in my body as I have done today,” Matt said over the mic. Literally. Had. A. Tear. Run. Down. My. Face.
Love is love. And these two radiate it. Enjoy their story through photographs!
