Emily and Michael asked us to be their wedding photographers after seeing the portraits we had done for a friend’s wedding. We love referrals and we were also so excited to take a weekend trip up to Brainerd, MN to photograph this beautiful Autumn wedding. Madden’s is a very large and very gorgeous golf resort on Gull Lake. There were countless locations around the grounds to photograph the bride and groom and the wedding party. Our favorite was a long rustic wooden bridge beneath a canopy of trees; the lighting was perfect and the tree coverage gave everyone a little bit of shelter from the rainy day. Unfortunately, due to the rain, the ceremony could not be held outside by the lake; however the indoor room they designated as the back-up plan was also very nice. The lodge where the reception took place was both rustic and elegant with a stunning view of Gull Lake. There was a separate room for the dance and guests could stay and party late into the night as everyone had rooms at the resort. It was such a fun weekend at Madden’s on Gull Lake!
