I am going to have to apologize a head of time for the absurdly long post...I just couldn't help myself! Stephanie & Aaron were married in at Sylvan Lake Lodge in Custer, South Dakota. Minneapolis is home but family & friends traveled from as far away as Japan to celebrate their wedding day with them! Sylvan Lake Lodge was the perfect backdrop for their wedding...from the amazing rock formations that surround the lodge (the beginning of the Needles!) to the beautiful lake side ceremony, everything about this outdoor wedding was a reflection of Stephanie & Aaron's laid back, natural style. I thought for sure we were going to get rained on during the ceremony but the huge dark cloud that swept into view only stayed long enough for me to get a few dramatic photos (no complaints!). It was lovely to see how attentive & sweet these two were with each other all day long & I am absolutely thrilled that they are now officially Mr. & Mrs! Congratulations!
