Dellwood Hills Light Painted Wedding Photo
We’re very happy to share the story behind Mike and Linda’s beautiful Dellwood Hills light painted wedding photo with you! This stunning one-of-a-kind light painting was created just after sunset during their wedding dance.
Between the really cute couple, a pretty setting, that huge pine tree, and the post-sunset stars in the sky, this is one really beautiful wedding light painting!
Here’s the location we started with:
A Quick Recap
A few days back, we shared many of the fun wedding photos and the story leading up to their St. Mary of the Lake wedding ceremony. The weather forecast for snow and rain went away allowing us to create a lot of great wedding photos outdoors. Their wedding day could not have gotten off to a better start!
Then a couple of days later, we shared the photo highlights from their beautiful Dellwood Hills Country Club wedding reception, dinner, and dance. With lots of family and friends, great food and music, their wedding celebration was absolutely wonderful!
I Wanna Be A Weatherman
As mentioned above, in the days leading up to their wedding, the weather forecast was not the best. Cold rain and/or snow was predicted for that Saturday. I had been so hoping to create wedding photographs outside for the first time since last fall, but it looked like that wouldn’t be likely. Then the day before, the weatherman said the nasty weather would miss the Twin Cities and it might be a decent day after all. Nice!
The big change in the weather allowed us to create a lot of great wedding photos both outside at St. Mary, and also during their wedding reception too. It also meant that we could create their Dellwood Hills light painted wedding photograph outdoors!
The Huge Pine Tree
So, once we had our photos of the first dance, Joannie and I got to work getting everything in place to create their Dellwood Hills light painted wedding photograph. Having not created an outdoor light painting of any kind in more than six months, I was eager to be back out in Mother Nature. But I had to keep telling myself not to bite off more than I could chew.
So what do I do?
I select a spot with a 100-foot tall pine tree as the main background feature. Oh yeah, there were several other “slightly smaller” pine trees that would have to be light painted too! Nothing like hitting the ground running after a long winter!
So, without further ado, here’s Mike and Linda’s stunning twilight Dellwood Hills light painted wedding photo!
