Each year during the holiday season, the Minnesota Landscape arboretum puts on a light show that is open to the public to walk through and experience the beauty of lights at night. It’s one of the most magical sights to see and it is a very romantic date night. Brad and Bridget got engaged at the Minnesota Landscape arboretum during the winter light show. It was chilly, but their love for one another warmed the atmosphere. It was such an honor to be able to document this moment for Brad and Bridget! We cannot wait to document their wedding day this Summer.
