Meggan & Joe | Minneapolis Events Center | Wedding Trailer Film

When I sat down with Meggan & Joe for the first time, I asked them to tell me about two things, in addition to their wedding day:

  1. The story of their relationship- their love story
  2. The elements of their dream wedding video

I quickly learned that Meggan and Joe are "sappy people", in their own words. Their passion for one another was apparent right away.  I could see they were two best friends who enjoyed spending time together doing whatever- cooking food (they are definitely foodies), hiking in beautiful places, or curling up on the couch to watch a good romantic-comedy.

When I asked them what they considered important in regards to their wedding video, they expressed to me a vision that was sweet and simple.

They first mentioned how important having a wedding film was for them, because they wanted the candid moments to be captured- the sweet little moments of raw emotion experienced throughout the day that go by so quickly. They wanted a film that truly captured their love and passion for one another, to relive the best day of their life for the rest of their lives.

Just chatting with them, you can feel the care and affection they have for one another- from the way they speak about each other to the twinkle in their eyes. And I think that translated perfectly into their wedding film. The true emotions they share for one another shined through, and made for a wedding film that would allow them to relive their beautiful March wedding all over again.

I think the Bride's father put it best in his speech, "Meggan & Joe's love is the true Minneapolis Miracle."

We had such a blast sharing in this special day and couldn't be more happy for them!

A Bohemian Dream Wedding | Taylor & Jacob | Minnesota Island Wedding

When Taylor & Jacob reached out to Dan West Films, I instantly knew this was going to be one of our most unique weddings. In the inquiry, they had put the wedding was going to be on their family island in Northern Minnesota. “This is going to be fun,” we thought!

To sum up the entire wedding day, it was a bohemian styled dream wedding. Seriously. Everything about the day was boho. The ladies were getting ready at the bride and grooms new house on the outskirts of a rural town. It had lush fields of wild flowers which is where the first look took place. All the bridesmaids wore flower crowns and had mismatched flowing dresses, while the bride wore a beautiful flowing white wedding dress. The groom was sporting a man bun and a maroon suit.

The wedding day was right in the heart of the island in wooded clearing, surrounded with mossy logs and flowers. Jacob was a woodworker, so he built custom archways and benches specifically for the wedding. Before the ceremony, the couple even had baby fawns brought to the site, a special surprise for Taylor.

And the décor! It was a vagabond delight.

This was the most unique, nature filled wedding we have been a part of and loved every second of it. There were baby deer, sparkler first dances, a forest ceremony, and so much more!

And the photographers we worked with, The Marions from Missouri, were fabulous. They specialized in bohemian style weddings and we were able to collaborate to create some beautiful art.

Overall this was just an amazing experiencing with an awesome couple!
