Zandra & Nick were an absolute dream to work with! We hit it off during their 2 hour engagement session exploring their hometown, Northfield, MN in October of 2019. They originally planned their June 2020 Wedding to be held at Cannon River Winery, but as we know COVID-19 made its appearance just a few short months before their big day. They handled the seemingly endless changes with such positive attitudes and honestly, their day couldn't have been more perfect! I remember speaking with Zandra about a month before their wedding, and she told me the most important thing to her was just finally being married to Nick (CUE THE WATERWORKS).
From Zandra's stunning wedding dress to the rustic & timeless decor, it was an absolutely gorgeous Summer wedding. Zandra shared the sweetest first look with her bridesmaids, and their reactions were priceless! While the weather started out gloomy and we had about 30 minutes of rain, the sun came out just in time for their afternoon ceremony. They were still able to have their ceremony at the Cannon River Vineyard, followed by an intimate outdoor reception at Zandra's parent's residence. Upon arrival to the reception, Zandra & Nick were greeted by friends & family who surprised them with congratulatory signs and honking horns! While they were unfortunately forced to cut their guest list to adhere with the pandemic, the amount of love and support for the two newlyweds was unmeasurable. Planning a wedding is stressful enough as it is, and having to start from scratch just a short month or two before everything is supposed to come together is terrifying. Luckily, their incredible support system of family and friends came together to help them navigate through the changes and create one heck of a special day! I was so honored to be a part of their celebration. Here is a look into their beautiful June wedding!
