Sherwood Forest had a charming salon for bridal prep the morning of Emily’s wedding in Brainerd, MN.
Emily and Blake saw each other for the first time outside at Sherwood Forest. Here was their first moment as Emily crept up on Blake along with a gift exchange.
We snapped a couple pics before heading to our first portrait destination.
The bridal party and family met at an outdoor pergola to stay out of the sun for outdoor portraits.
When the bride and groom’s parents are still married, I like to take some fun photos with them. Its a very special day for them as well.
Before the ceremony, Emily and Blake had a moment in the sanctuary.
The bridal party took their bus to the Pickle Factory bar.
Details were finalized at Sherwood Forest while guests mingled.
Speeches were emotional and heartfelt. And at times so funny!
