KNOT-TIED: Chantel + Derek // Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Get ready for another gorgeous wedding, everyone!! Chantel + Derek’s beautiful Pelican Rapids wedding was SUCH  a fun day! We had some beautiful weather (besides a 30 minute rain shower in the afternoon) and so many friends and family there to celebrate these two. The church they got married in was so beautiful and had some of the best natural light inside that I’ve ever gotten to work with!! We headed out to Milt’s Barn ( for pictures in the afternoon and I absolutely fell in LOVE with this property! I’ve been to my fair share of barns, and I’ve got to tell you all, this is one of the best locations I’ve been to for a wedding. There is so much to do and see there, not to mention the acres of wide open space and trees for beautiful picture locations 🙂 Chantel  + Derek clearly had so much fun together at their wedding – I often caught them taking in their big day together without anyone else around. I was so glad to get the opportunity to work with them, along with their beautiful little girl, BraeLynn. I’m really happy for these two – they compliment each other so well and really get each other. It was so fun to watch their excitement grow all day about the fact that their wedding was FINALLY here. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Cossette!!

Stay warm out there! 🙂
