I get it. Winter in Minnesota is cold. This past week saw the firm end of autumn as the daily temperature is now below 25. It feels downright arctic after a soothing fall, and it isn’t even December yet. So I understand that for many, the idea of planning a wedding in the middle of a Minnesota winter seems harrowing and a little bit like you might have guests who revolt.
However, I would look at it a little differently: you actually know what the weather will be like. Clear skies, snow covered hills, enough cold air to keep everyone focused. Basically, the perfect backdrop for an intimate and warm celebration. And Rush Creek Golf Club was an excellent location to show off Amanda and Adan’s winter wedding – landscapes full of snow and sunsets, warm rooms full of celebrating friends.
I was thrilled to work with them as they coordinated family from all over, many of whom had never dealt with a Minnesota winter. There were gloves and boots and scarves. The groomsmen each went through a can of static guard. And then something amazing happened – everyone just forgot to be cold, and they remembered to celebrate together.
Thanks, Amanda and Adan, for choosing me to document such a warm and loving day!
