Cole and Jill are MARRIED!! 06.06.15

We love this couple. From the very depths of our hearts. Words are inadequate to describe how much it meant to photograph their wedding day.

  When Cole called us many months back to ask if we were available for their upcoming wedding, there may have been a couple of shrieks of delight after we hung up the phone!  Now they have already been Mr. & Mrs. for 20 whole days, so that makes 2,368 days that Jill has loved Cole.♥  We have known Jill for all of those days (and many more) and can say without a doubt that Cole is her perfect complement, her true soulmate.

The morning began at the Avant in downtown Grand Forks where Jill started her transformation from beautiful girl into beautiful bride. We were treated to gorgeous window light for the entire getting ready portion of the day, and then had a “lucky” rainstorm as soon as we were all tucked safely into the church for the ceremony. The real lucky part was that the sky dried its eyes again for outdoor pictures before the reception!

You can watch the rest of the story unfold below… Here’s to the story that’s still being written – Cole and Jill, you had the perfect start to married life, and the best is yet to come!

Stephen & Jeanne’s Wedding – 02.06.15

Jeanne and Steven’s wedding truly was one of the most unique events we have ever photographed. As Jeanne intended, the entire day felt as though we had stepped back into the late 19th century. Placed at the historical Avalon in downtown Fargo, we had our fill of lace, vintage brooches, gourmet chocolates, exquisite flowers and a to-die-for raspberry filled layer cake. Not to mention a gorgeous, glowing bride, beautiful bridesmaids, and an awfully dapper groom and groomsmen. 🙂  An intimate ceremony and formal dinner made their wedding day personal and low-stress, and a larger reception brunch the following day was the perfect way to start off life as Mr. and Mrs. Farnsworth!

Cole & Jill – Engaged!

Cole and Jill have been together through thick and thin – they compliment each other perfectly and there is no doubt that Cole is Jill’s “prince charming!” (He’s just a pretty charming guy all around.) We have known Jill since she was a little girl, and these two both feel like family. We were thrilled when we heard that Cole had *ahem, finally* proposed 😉 and double thrilled when he called to ask us about photographing their wedding next June. I can’t imagine anything more special than being by their side as they become Mr. & Mrs!

Dan & Liz’s Wedding

Dan and Liz have a very sweet and special “love story”! The rumor is that Dan was seen riding a bicycle through a park, wearing (gasp!) shorts, and accompanied by a girl. Apparently this was the moment when his friends knew that he was in love, because Dan is just not a “ride-your-bike-in-the-park-wearing-shorts” kind of guy! 🙂 He is more “walk through the woods wearing camo while carrying a gun/bow and arrow” type of guy. Luckily Liz is also that kind of girl, at least enough to go along with Dan for a walk in the woods, where there just happened to be a pair of antlers, an engagement ring, and a marriage proposal! Also, lucky for them both that she said yes, because they are so suited for each other.  The family moments between mother and daughters were especially poignant, seeing their closeness and having Liz’s mom walk her down the aisle. Liz also had such a wonderful bridal party – cousins and friends since childhood (literally kindergarten!) The weather cooperated (for the most part), the ceremony was touching at times and light-hearted at times, and the reception details, food and drinks blew us away! I think those little, right off the tree caramel apples dipped in crushed pretzels were the most perfect food I’ve ever eaten 🙂 And the Oreo truffles? Let’s just say that some people had to be threatened to make sure that there were enough to go around!

Dan and Liz, you are off to a wonderful start, and thanks so much for having us be a part of this beginning of your lives together.
