Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Preteau!
We met Casey & Alan last year at Rotary Park for their engagement pictures, and right away we knew that theses guys were going to be a laid back and fun couple to work with.
I started out the day by joining Casey and her bridesmaids at Hair Candy, the hair salon in Pipestone, MN. The hair stylists did a great job, and Casey’s up do was gorgeous!
When everyone’s hair and makeup was perfect, we headed to the Hiawatha Lodge in Pipestone, where the wedding ceremony and reception was taking place. The couple promised that we’d fall in love with the outdoor space, and indoor venue. They were right! Their outdoor ceremony took place by a small, beautiful lake. Their wedding reception was inside a lovely building with stone walls and large windows. The entire venue is surrounded by tall grass, and trees.
I managed to snap a few pictures of the wedding details including the wedding dress, and the bride’s bouquet. I love how Casey’s flowers pop in each picture!
When the groom arrived, we found a shady spot under some old oak trees. It was the perfect place to capture their first look. The soon-to-be newlyweds even wanted their puppy Dungery to be a part of their special first look. It was super cute!
After the first look, we snuck in some wedding photos of the good looking couple. Luckily, the weather decided to cooperate and make sure that their wedding day wasn’t too hot.
I loved the outdoor space. The tall grass and shady trees helped keep the entire wedding party cool, and made their pictures look amazing. This group of people really loved to have fun, and I think that shows in their bridal party photos!
After finishing pictures with the Bridal Party, it was time for the ceremony. I love outdoor ceremonies like this with such a beautiful view, and with the couple looking so lovingly at each other. Drysen provided a subtle sound system to allow the guests to hear the ceremony without distracting from the natural beauty of the wedding.
After the ceremony, the wedding party and the couple left on a trailer to have some fun while the guest relaxed and had some delicious appetizers. The reception was decorated so well, with a beautiful variety of centerpieces at each table. There’s something super special about these decorations. After their wedding, Casey & Alan opened Bride to Bride Consignment in Sioux Falls. You can find their wedding decorations, as well as decorations from other brides at a fantastic price!
Once the Bridal Party arrived from their quick trip around Pipestone, Drysen kicked off the evening with the wedding party’s grand entrance. After dinner, the bride and groom had a great time with their cake cutting, and the Best Man and Maid of Honor gave a great speech.
After everyone finished dinner, Casey and Alan started their the evening with their first dance of the night. Drysen did a fantastic time keeping everyone dancing and having a blast. This wedding was a complete success. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Preteau!
