Minneapolis Wedding Photographers

Cara and Ryan’s Gale Woods Farm wedding was a really singular event! Their venue is a fully working educational farm, which meant this shy and loving couple got to meet a whole series of gentle animals. From a friendly barn cat who offered them the blessing of her presence during their vows to a herd dog who stopped to smell Cara’s flowers, from smiling sheep to a sunset llama – it was like capturing a wedding in a Disney movie!

Gale Woods Farm is a truly unique wedding experience – and we’ve been to a lot of weddings! It is a part of the Three Rivers District park system, tucked in the midst of the lake network just west of Minnetonka, MN, secluded and lovely! It’s a fully working farm with indoor and outdoor space abutting a beautiful tree-lined lake. As far as wedding experiences go, Cara and Ryan’s Gale Woods Farm wedding was as peaceful as it was beautiful!

Enjoy 🙂

One of the great things about a Gale Woods Farm wedding is diversity of photo opportunities – from fields to forest to lakeside beauty and everything in between.
