Ellen and Jake {Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth Minnesota} Emily Charais Photography Wedding and Engagement Photographer

A wedding in the woods.  That is how this wedding was described to me for the first time, but a description so simple could not have prepared me for the sweet simplicity and beauty of the day of Ellen and Jake’s wedding.  Set in Side Lake, Minnesota at Chapel of the Pines, this wedding was one of the most lovely weddings I have attended.  The fall colors peaked just in time for this couple to exchange vows in a ceremony that was so unique and personal, I just loved being a part of it.  I am in love with this day, and this couple is dear to my heart, and I am so happy to have been there to witness it.  Thank you Ellen and Jake for asking me to be your wedding photographer in the north woods.  I am forever grateful.
