A woodsy setting, boho florals, slate blue accents, rustic details, and timeless attire were a perfect combination for this moody fall day! I’ve been dying to photograph a ceremony is a grove of tall pines, and it was everything I dreamed it would be, pure magic!

The Krueger Sisters
Yep, you read that right! All four sisters now married, the first for 9 years and the latest for only 1 month, and their Mother came up with a brilliant idea: Let’s do a photo shoot with all four of my daughters in their wedding dresses!
From the start I fell in love with the idea! I mean, I’ve never actually seen anything like this and there are no boundaries! With that we started to snowball different ideas. The rustic theme was derived from our location, the parents home and maple syrup shack. The plaid mugs, hot cocoa, boots, hats and blankets were the perfect additions to this chilly November day. The hot cocoa may or may not have had a little extra something added to keep the girls warm!
Let me guess, your thinking “What’s with the pictures on the couch?” Truth is the girls love the TV hit series “Friends” and if you’re a Friends fan you already know where this is headed! Their goal was to recreate the episode where the friends were chilling on the couch in their wedding dresses. So, did we nail it or what!? Plus the inside of their sugar shack is too cute not to photograph.
If you’re in need of all natural maple syrup or honey, be sure to visit the Krueger’s! They are too kind, and happily gave me a tour and sent me home with a jar of honey!
