Chris & Cassie's New York Mills MN Country Wedding {09.15.12}

A beautiful wedding took place in the New York Mills, MN countryside on September 15th.
This wedding was a photographer's dream: gorgeous, rustic backdrops and scenery, an assortment of open shade, and best of all, an absolutely wonderful and kind-hearted couple that are truly in love.

Wow. didn't know I was so sentimental!

Love that these shoes added just the right amount of sass to Cassie's sweet demeanor:

The first look on the farmhouse porch:

My "second shooter", sis Katelyn's view (recently I sold her my original DSLR, the Canon 40D!) :

adore this one...

The dads: 

The best accessories: cowboy hats and boots!

Cassie's parents transformed their barn into a beautiful reception hall ...see below!

I noticed this fence and the cornfield and asked C & C if pretty please we could take some photos ...

K's view:

They also obliged for these ones, too.

K's view:

these flowers are absolutely perfect.

The barn was made into a beautiful reception hall.
Amazing doesn't even begin to describe it!

Truffle cake! 

Practicing their dance before the grand entrance. 

Grand entrance!

Their first dance was beautifully danced to "Everything's a Waltz" by Ed Bruce.
(very appropriate being Waltz is their last name!)

I'm thinking my hubby is regretting we did't have a european mount elk decorating our wedding reception! ;-)

K's view from the balcony:

Well, now I can say I've been to a barn dance! 

THANK YOU sincerely, Chris and Cassie and all your friends and family... 
a true, true honor to be there to experience your once-in-a-lifetime day with you!
