KNOT-TIED: Nicole + Ben // Minnesota Wedding Photographer

I’m so thrilled to be sharing Nicole + Ben’s gorgeous, backyard, countryside wedding with you all tonight!! Nicole  + Ben are so perfect together and compliment each other in the best of ways. I adore Nicole’s beauty and her soft, yet radiating personality. She’s truly one-of-a-kind and such a sweet person. Ben is as nice as they come – I found myself on their wedding day constantly saying “Ben, it’s okay! It’s your wedding day!” He truly cares so much about other people and many people mentioned that throughout the speeches. I was so happy to be a part of their day. The wedding took place at Ben’s parents home near Freeport, MN.  I love when weddings take place at someone’s home – it’s so nice to have everyone in one spot and have free reign for pictures 🙂 Their yard is absolutely gorgeous – it was so clear how much pride they take in their landscaping and beautiful flowers. To top it all off, they also live on a lake, so we had a beautiful lake and dock as a backdrop for the ceremony. Every detail of their wedding day was so planned out – the flowers were beautiful, the homemade bar, made by Ben’s sister was one-of-a-kind, and the reception centerpieces were completely fitting for this lakeside affair. I need to quit my chatting and just let you all see how stunning this wedding truly was. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Rueter – I’m so happy for you guys!! Enjoy 🙂

What a gorgeous wedding. I’m the biggest fan ever of outdoor, at-your-own-home, weddings…they’re the BEST.
