Jaynah and John’s rustic Saint Charles, Minnesota wedding was nothing short of magic. The love between this beautiful couple was so evident throughout the entire day. They said “I do” at the stunning St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. Leading up to their wedding day, I was so dang giddy to have the opportunity to capture their love. Their love story is just the sweetest.

When Jaynah first reached to inquire, she told me that her and John were high school sweethearts. Honestly, does it even get better than that?! A while before John popped the question, Jaynah’s family began restoring her grandpa’s old barn to turn it into an event center. One night, John surprised Jaynah in the very barn that they spent so much time restoring. It was nothing short of magical. Flash forward to their wedding day, Jaynah and John celebrated their love with their friends and family at the Barn at Cedar Knoll beneath 7 dazzling crystal chandeliers. 

This was one of those weddings that it was almost impossible to choose a favorite  moment from. The morning of the wedding, Jaynah was surrounded by so many supportive women encouraging her; Jaynah was such a joyful bride. In lieu of a first look with John, Jaynah and her father had a first look where they read each other letters. It’s safe to say I sobbed throughout the entire day. After a beautiful ceremony, the bridal party traveled to Whitewater State Park for their photos. It was such a joy to be surrounded by so many people hyping each other up and truly celebrating with Jaynah and John.

Above all though, I absolutely couldn’t leave out the sunset romantics with the new Mr. and Mrs. The Barn at Cedar Knoll is located on a large acreage in a rural area. We took a four-wheeler out to the middle of a pasture to catch the prettiest sunset. We spent some time capturing the love of Jaynah and John with an audience of cows! What a dream.

Capturing different chapters in a couple’s love story fills my heart to the brim. I am so thankful to the couples I have met and spent so much time with – on the happiest days of their lives.
