Have you ever heard of a couple growing their own flowers for their wedding day? Me either. Well, not until Jeanie and Adam. Not only did they grow the flowers, Jeanie made bouquets and crowns the morning of the wedding at 300 Clifton. I probably shouldn’t leave out the fact that Adam had been curing a ham for 16 months prior to the wedding and had it sliced and served up during cocktail hour at their Bauhaus Brew Labs reception. Mind. Blown. Congrats Jeanie and Adam!

Minneapolis Fall Engagement Session | Drew + Scot | Post by Melissa Hesse

Minneapolis Fall Engagement Session | Photography by Melissa Hesse

Drew has been in my life since 6th grade and was the first openly gay person I knew. He was such an inspiration to me and many of our mutual friends growing up, so this engagement session was such an honor to photograph!

Drew and Scot met while working at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis and they quickly became a big part of each others lives. However, Drew went off to work on the road for Sesame Street Live for a few years but the two of them stayed in touch through it all. It was no surprise once Drew came back to settle down that the two of them would finally embrace their love and move in together. On the 4th of July this year, Drew proposed to Scot during fireworks. We celebrated their engagement starting at Longfellow Grill with mimosas and a gorgeous fall walk near the Mississippi River on two different sides of town. Congrats to Drew and Scot!

Forest Lake MN Wedding | Mr. + Mrs. Anderson | Post by Jess Ekstrand

Forest Lake MN Wedding | Photography by Jess Ekstrand | Rivets & Roses

Jesse and Ben got married in a friend’s backyard in Forest Lake on one seriously hot day. Their day came together with a number of elements from friends and family along with just a touch of Disney here and there. Jesse’s sister and mom made her veil. Jesse’s brother-in-law designed their invitation. The mother-of-the groom sang during the ceremony. And the father-of-the bride even made the arbor Ben and Jesse got married under. Congrats to these two sweethearts!

Minneapolis Club Wedding | Mr. + Mrs. Craven | Post by Nicole McCoy

Minneapolis Club Wedding | Photo by Nicole McCoy | Rivets & Roses


It was a blast capturing John and Sophie's wedding day as people from all over the world (literally) came to Minneapolis to celebrate with them. John and Sophie live in Chicago, so you would think planning a wedding in Minneapolis for guests from all over to attend would be a challenge, but not for these two! They were incredibly on top of every detail you could think of, while still making it personal and special for themselves. 

This gathering of friends and family from near and far was truly beautiful to witness as they surrounded John and Sophie with all of their support and love. Some members of Sophie's family hadn't seen each other for 10 years! Cheers to you both for not only making your wedding beautiful, but for hosting so many of your closest people so well. We hope their new adventure to Germany after tying the knot is a blast!

Maple Ridge Farm Wedding | Mr. + Mrs. Caldwell | Jess Ekstrand

Maple Ridge Farm Wedding | Photo by Jess Ekstrand | Rivets & Roses

There is something truly special about being a photographer and being able to witness so many weddings. Watching couples, and families, join together. Kara and Ryan’s ceremony at Maple Ridge Farm was truly special as Ryan not only voiced his commitment to Kara, but also to Kara’s daughter. This ceremony and their walk down the aisle as a family were a couple of my favorite moments of the year.

St. Croix River Engagement Session | Katie + Amanda | Post by Melissa Hesse

St. Croix River Engagement Session | Affordable Minneapolis Wedding Photographers | Photo by Melissa Hesse | Rivets & Roses

When Katie and Amanda mentioned doing their engagement session near the St. Croix River it got me so excited to go on an adventure with them. We hiked into the St. Croix National Riverway for these stunning views as the rain came and went. It was our intention to get the golden hour light but it didn’t seem to be in the cards that day. We worked our way down to get closer to the river and just as we stepped into the perfect spot the sun peeked out. It was meant to be for these two! Congrats to Katie and Amanda on their engagement!

Aria Minneapolis Wedding | Chris + Eyal | Post by Melissa Hesse

Chinese Tea Ceremony Wedding | Photo by Melissa Hesse

Chris and Eyal really incorporated both of their backgrounds into their wedding day. It was split into two parts beginning with the Chinese tea ceremony in the morning at Chris’s family home and the second half was a Jewish ceremony at Aria to represent Eyal’s background. The two of them currently live in San Francisco, so their friends and family came from all parts of the world to celebrate in Minnesota where Chris is originally from. We love seeing weddings intertwine all parts of life from the couple and the people who have known them individually and together. Every person at their wedding has been a significant part of their lives in one way or another and you could feel their worlds colliding as one.

Even though they already had a ceremony is Isreal, Chris and Eyal put in every detail with Julia LaCroix into their wedding day. They created their own menu with Create Catering and called the cuisine “Chewish” - a mix between their favorite Chinese and Jewish eats. Everywhere you looked these two had a detail to represent their cultures and it was beautifully done. Congrats to Chris and Eyal!
