MN Landscape Arboretum Wedding Photography
“If we want to go, we’ve got to hurry!” I was watching the weather and radar on my phone. A huge rain cloud was moving toward us as we were photographing the preparations for Robin + Paul’s Minnesota Landscape Arboretum wedding photos. We had to get outside as fast as possible for their first look so we could ensure it was captured before the deluge! We headed outside as quickly as we could, and felt occasional drops as the storm edge was coming.

Their first look went off without a hitch. Then the sprinkles started to let up a bit, so we decided to head over to some nearby gardens for portrait time. Lucky us, we had enough time to spend in the Japanese Garden, Hosta Glade AND the Woodland Azalea Garden before the sprinkles came back. We had so much fun. Robin + Paul are a laugh a minute and our cheeks hurt from giggling!
Our luck apparently ran out, however, as their wedding party and family formals were cut short when then sprinkles quickly turned into a torrential downpour. We flipped into Plan B mode and were able to use our emergency umbrellas to ferry everyone over to the space underneath the skyway between the buildings for portraits. We then also moved their entire ceremony indoors to the Oswald Visitor Center lobby. Hooray for flexibility and fast thinking!

Even with the big changes to our plans, Robin + Paul’s MN Landscape Arboretum wedding was still an amazing day. The two of them are so fun to be around – full of giggles, jokes and laughs, and they are a perfect complement to one another! We also had such an amazing time working on their MN Landscape Arboretum engagement photos too!
Robin + Paul – thank you so much for hiring me as your wedding photographer for your Minnesota Landscape Arboretum wedding photos. Even with the rain, it was so fun and beautiful. Congratulations to you both – I am so happy for you!
