Many people would truly find themselves at home amongst a gorgeous, lush, green landscaped garden setting. So naturally, when I got the chance to create Molly + Andy’s Minnesota Landscape Arboretum wedding photos, I was ecstatic! I always feel like I could spend a whole day, or even a week, at the Arboretum and never see everything I wanted.
Molly + Andy held their outdoor wedding ceremony at the beautiful, quaint Wilson Rose Garden, right near the main Visitor Center building, on a perfectly sunny, warm July day. The Arboretum had special meaning for them because Molly grew up nearby and visited frequently when she was younger. (Lucky her!) They were able to enjoy their ceremony right in the center of the roses and adorable fountains. It was the perfect backdrop, and their families in attendance were absolutely overjoyed at their union.
After their ceremony, we were lucky enough to have some time to spend wandering among the woodland gardens and trails, as well as the Japanese garden, to take photos of the two of them together. Afterward, we headed to the back of the Visitor Center for their reception dinner on the patio that overlooked a pond and other beautiful gardens as the sun was setting on the horizon. They also enjoyed cutting their beautiful cake (even with the small mess that was made!) and Molly’s dad gave a sweet toast to the two of them to cap off the night.
Thank you so much for including me as your Minneapolis wedding photographer for your beautiful Minnesota Landscape Arboretum wedding photos Molly + Andy! We wish you all the happiness in the world in your new lives together!
