NDSU Alumni Center Wedding Photos

Good morning, and Happy Wednesday! I have a million NDSU Alumni Center Wedding Photos to share with you today.  I’m thrilled to share Mark and Melanie’s wedding with you. This sweet pair was married on Saturday between thunderstorms and tornado warnings. Between flying rain drops, they pulled off an amazing, outdoor ceremony! The courtyard at the Alumni Center is one of my favorite places for wedding photos in town. The gazebo and arched walkways hold such a modern-quaint feeling and was the perfect choice for M&M’s rustic, elegant DIY wedding. Melanie (and Mark!) deserve credit for hand crafting so many of the details of this wedding day. Crafters… be inspired!

(The little bun in her hair? I die.)
