Kristine and Ryan got married on an overcast fall day in beautiful St. Louis Park, MN at Oakridge Country Club. They were surrounded by close friends and family and spent the day laughing and trying to not step on the goose poop that littered the golf course. Oakridge Country Club is a dream for Minnesota wedding photographers!!! I had so much fun on the grounds and in the beautiful natural light filled hallway at the club! I was high school friends with a lot of the party and guests, so it was fun capturing all of them and having a blast as well. I may or may not have took a lil sip of apple whiskey. Hey, I was forced!! :)
The love story from Kristine:
Quarter 3 of high school I had psychology class. Right before the bell rings in walks this guy with the best eyes I’ve ever seen- very dressed up in his sweatpants.... I liked him instantly. I would call him my first hour boyfriend but we never talked. It wasn’t until I got the balls to ask to be his friend on Facebook that we started talking! He commented on a status or something and I gave him my number.... I was so giddy all weekend! We didn’t officially start dating until a year later, the end of my senior year of high school and the end of his first year of college. We had hard times throughout college and I am so happy to say we grew together instead of a part.
The love story from Ryan:
Psychology class my senior year of high school this cute junior sitting in the front of class caught my eye. At that time I did not expect to ever talk, let alone date/marry this girl. Being the ladies man I am, it took me a few months to work up the courage to Facebook message or talk to her, but as soon as I did a quick connection was made. Over the next 9 years we created many great memories, from our first date building a lego pyramid getting to know each other to purchasing a home together, an amazing friendship was established. She is the most driven, intelligent, & compassionate partner. I can’t wait to marry and continue making lasting memories with her! 10.27.2018
