Elyssa and James || Lakeville MN Wedding Photographer

The right words to say about this couple will never be possible. 

Elyssa is my cousin and we grew up together as dear friends. We would giggle over boys in classic movies like Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, or Princess Diaries as we had sleepovers on our grandmother's pull out couch. She was always the cool older cousin who would show me the latest pop songs that were appropriate (we're talking Hillary Duff and Aaron Carter generation) and inform me on the latest fashion trends. There were silly choreographed dance videos and photo shoots and so many late night conversations. We would almost always talk about boys and all our hopes and dreams for the future.

To get to photograph her on the day of her dreams was beyond beautiful. 

James is everything Elyssa needed. He is one of the kindest men I think I've ever met. He fits her perfectly. There was this "right"ness to it all. It absolutely exemplified that God is able to do more than what we can ask or imagine. He truly knows our best interests. He knows our hearts and our desires. He has everything all figured out. 

Their wedding day was all about the wonder of grace. That God is so kind. So kind to us.
