Sometimes things don't go according to plan...

Stillwater, Minnesota is one of the most popular locations for weddings in the Minneapolis / St Paul area. And on this particular Saturday with 45 minutes between the ceremony and the reception to shoot the wedding party at a scenic location outdoors we ran into road blocks... literally!

All three classic Stillwater locations the bride and groom had chosen to shoot pictures at were already taken BY OTHER WEDDING PARTY'S shooting their own photos!

That left the flooded water front in front of the reception hall at the WaterStreet Inn as our last possible outdoor location...

This could have been BAD... a ruin the day sort of BAD... instead the wedding party rallied and made the most of what we had to work with.. and created more great memories of the FUN we had shooting pictures at the flooded band shell and on the BUSY lift bridge!
