Weddings & Engagements

Cole & Alyssa

North Dakota is notoriously cold and windy, but seriously?? 40 degrees and 30 mph wind in the middle of May? Anyway, these two brave souls (North Dakota natives, both) said, Let’s just go for it! We are so glad we did, because the sheltered spots we found were perfect for some gorgeousĀ photos. And I loved the fact that we could commemorate their high school sweetheart beginnings by doing some fun shots in the school. We are really looking forward to their August wedding because of their sweet and special relationship to each other, and we know they will be wonderful to work with, no matter what Mother Nature (or anything else!) throws at us. In any case, I predict a beautiful, smooth sailing wedding day for them–because they will make it that way! šŸ™‚

Mitch & Erin – 04.16.16

Mitch and Erin’s day was very different from our typical wedding and we loved it! TheĀ evening ceremony was so unique and a scrumptious selection of hors d’oeuvres took the place of a formal meal afterward. Most importantly, their day was perfect for them… The entire celebration centered around their love for each other and the joy they felt to be getting married. I will never forget the gorgeous music during the ceremony (Erin’s mom actually wrote a song for her!) and the *lucky* spring rain showers throughout the day. We risked taking our perfectly coifed, pristine bride out in the rainĀ for pictures in a historic opera house…Ā And I’m so glad we did. ā™”

I had such a nice time getting to know this couple for their engagement shoot! Zach and Emberly are both sweet, considerate people, and I appreciated how easy they were to work with.

Darin & Erika’s Wedding

This was such a beautiful winter wedding! The day had a tasteful, elegant holiday vibe to it, and the rich colors wereĀ a perfect background for the gorgeousĀ bride, groom and bridal party.Ā Erika is favorite auntie to the two little flower girls who had so much fun being made into princesses for a day! I was touchedĀ to see how absolutely surrounded by love and support Darin and Erika wereĀ as they beganĀ their lives together, and once again enjoyed capturing the playful sweetness in their relationship. Ā One favorite memory: Our soft-hearted groom thoughtfully gave Erika a handkerchief to keep handy for wiping away any tears… but he ended up being the one who needed it! Ā šŸ˜‰

Kevin & Valerie’s Wedding

Kevin and Valerie have a beautiful love story…they knew each other growing up, and attended their First Communion together. Life took them down different paths, only to reunite them after they met again at a friend’s wedding. This day, for them, was about getting married, and having a good time while doing it! This truly was the first day of the rest of their lives together…I won’t forget Valerie mouthing the words “I love you” to Kevin during their first look, and Kevin telling us he thought Valerie looked like Princess Diana in her dress!
