We’ve just completed Sam and Taylor’s pretty Rush Creek light painted wedding photo! Because of the sub-zero temperatures, we created this light painting indoors by the beautiful Grand Staircase at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove, MN.
If it seems like we just shared a light painted wedding photograph created at Rush Creek, it’s because we did! Our previous wedding’s reception (Ryan and Kayla’s) was also held at Rush Creek Golf Course! Kind of a weird coincidence that we would be at the same venue two weddings in a row, but there we were once again! We don’t really mind since Rush Creek is a really wonderful wedding venue for wedding photography.
A Quick Recap
Before we get into the details from Sam and Taylor’s Rush Creek light painted wedding photograph, we should talk about the rest of their wonderful wedding day a least little bit. Sam and Taylor’s wedding was filled with lots of emotion and fun! It all began with their formal wedding photos and ceremony at Spirit of Hope in Golden Valley, MN.
Then it was on to Rush Creek Golf Course for their amazing reception, dinner, and dance. We even stepped outside in the -20 wind chills for some (quick) wedding party photos. We also captured this pretty winter wedding sunset photo of our newlyweds too!
We’re on a roll so far in our wedding photography light painting adventures. Despite some shaky weather through much the 2018 wedding season, we created a one-of-a-kind light painted wedding photo at each and every wedding we photographed last year!
Well, we’re not about to end that streak just because of a -20 wind chill! Nope, we’re getting pretty darn good at creating these indoors when Mother Nature throws us a curveball. Heck, we even created one at a “live” bar during Clint and Kaia’s wedding reception!
As we mentioned at the start of this post, we had just created Ryan and Kayla’s light painted wedding photograph at Rush Creek three weeks earlier. Since we were forced indoors once again, and the Grand Staircase at Rush Creek being the coolest indoor feature there, that’s where we set-up shop.
I did not want the two light paintings to be too similar. So I decided to go horizontal this time and from a totally different perspective as well. So we moved to the other side of the room for Sam and Taylor’s light painting.
There was a second wedding reception going on upstairs at Rush Creek. So, at times, it was a little crazy to be working at the “intersection” of both weddings, but we made it work. As you can see, Sam and Taylor’s Rush Creek light painted wedding picture turned out pretty darn cool!
