We’ve only been to Minnesota once. And it hardly counts. We touched town at the airport, hopped straight into our rental car late at night (stopped at Burger King for dinner!) and headed to Wisconsin for Megan and Joe’s Vineyard Wedding. Even though we didn’t really get to experience the common expression “Minnesota nice” *IN* Minnesota, we did leave that part of the country seeing why “Minnesota nice” has become part of the Upper-Midwest’s vernacular. Everywhere we went, and everyone we interacted with, just had a genuine warmth and kindness that was infectious.
Fast forward to the first time we met Kelly and John. We were instantly reminded of that “Minnesota nice” feeling all over again. They just embodied it. Kind, humble, warm and courteous. As we talked over coffee, and they started telling us about how they met and their plans for their destination wedding here at Four Seasons Scottsdale with our friends at Some Like It Classic, we were hooked. Conversation was so easy — the time passed too quickly! — which made us look forward to the next time we’d see them.
When we put a date for their Desert Botanical Garden engagement session on the calendar, we all knew they’d be getting a great excuse to escape the winter weather of Minnesota, but we couldn’t have known just *how* cold it was going to be! With temperatures at NEGATIVE TWENTY TWO when they left, let’s just say they were VERY relieved to be soaking in the warm sun for their engagement session. It was 72 degrees for their shoot, which means there was almost a HUNDRED DEGREE DIFFERENCE!
Yikes! Our fingers are cold just typing that!
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day at the Desert Botanical Gardens, where Arizona gets to show off not only our ideal winter weather but also some of the prettiest desert-scape in the valley. Kelly and John were SO sweet and SO in love, and had us thanking our lucky stars that we get to serve couples who make our job the best one in the world.
Kelly and John, thank you for traveling across the country for this session and trusting us to tell your love story with our cameras!
