Hayley and Hunter had the most beautiful, elegant Ivy Black wedding day this summer just outside Duluth, MN. If you’re looking for outdoor summer wedding ideas or a gorgeous place to celebrate your love in Minnesota, this wedding will give you all the inspo!!
Ivy Black wedding venue is a new, modern gem in Saginaw, Northern Minnesota, and it was the perfect place for the couple’s special day. The venue has beautiful interiors perfect for Minnesota winter weddings or as a backup option in case it rains.
The venue also has multiple outdoor ceremony sites, which actually came in very handy for Haley and Hunter’s wedding day. Their original ceremony location was swampy due to the rain, so we had to move it to the patio! It’s always helpful to have plans B, C & D when it comes to your wedding day, haha!
I personally loved the vast, gorgeous fields surrounding the venue! They were PERFECT for these dreamy golden hour wedding photos! If you know me, you know how much I LOVE capturing golden hour portraits!
One of the most heartfelt moments of the day was the first look between Haley and her father. Her dad is the sweetest soul and was so emotional during the first look and also while walking his daughter down the aisle. The emotion was so raw and beautiful, and it was an absolute privilege being there to capture it! I may or may not have been crying behind the camera as well.
“Oh my goodness!! We just looked at some of the pictures, and we are IN LOVE with them!! You are so incredible at what you do! Thank you for making each picture so special!”
If you and your fiancé are planning your Minnesota wedding, you might just be searching for a photographer who gets your vision. Whether it’s a classy, elegant affair, a laid-back wedding day, or any vibe that feels YOU – I’d love to be there to capture it!
