Good morning!! I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Today I’m excited to share Corey & Samie’s wedding with you. They were married this past Saturday at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Fargo, ND, with all preceding activities and reception held at the Courtyard Marriott in Moorhead, MN.  I am a Courtyard Marriot Fargo Wedding Photographer and love shooting at this fun and friendly venue! The Courtyard is beautiful and a perfect place for photos. Corey is one of the DJ’s behind Harmon Danceworks and I’ve had the pleasure of working with their team a number of times at weddings around the region. I was super honored when Corey called and asked me to photograph his wedding, and even more excited after meeting his sweet fiancee, Samie!  These two have such a fantastic relationship and complement each other in so many ways!

Samie’s theme colors throughout the day were navy blue, grays and orange, and I don’t think they could have picked a better hotel for their colors. Blues and oranges everywhere!
