Kirstin and Gil’s Intimate Outdoor Wedding in Stillwater, MN

THIS wedding is one for the books! Oh, Kirstin and Gil… I fell in love with them when I did their engagement session. Kirstin had shared with me her vision for the wedding and mentioned how much she loved the lush woods and rustic feel Camrose Hill provided. Kirstin and Gil are two kindhearted and friendly people that were SO adventurous with me and my ideas. They tucked away with me into the woods and fields several times for some photos. The whole day was absolutely intimate and beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple and love story to be a part of!

I’ve asked Kirstin to share a little bit about how they met and her wedding inspiration.

“Gil and I met freshman year of college during the first year and we were just really good friends. After a summer a part, we decided to date sophomore year and the rest is history! We both love spending time with our family and friends, and our pug children, Fido and Emma.

We wanted our wedding to be whimsical and romantic. We mixed in my favorite colors purple and hints of gold. Camrose hill fit the bill! It was tucked away, had beautiful chandeliers, and rustic elements. We included elements of our favorite things throughout the space such as a popcorn bar, a pug bearer and flower girl, and live music played by a friend. The day was wonderful and we could not have imagined it any other way.” – Kirstin
