Outdoor Fall Wedding at Bluestem Center Moorhead
Moorhead Wedding Photographer Abby Anderson
Josh & Mandy
Josh & Mandy were married on Saturday in an outdoor fall wedding at Bluestem Center Center Moorhead! Because of the busy summer concert and theater schedule during the summer, Bluestem reserves it’s event bookings to the fall. Surrounded by trees, fields, wild grasses and situated so close to the river it makes an incredible fall wedding location. The autumn leaves and sweeping skies are just perfect out here! I’m always thrilled when I get to shoot at Bluestem, and being a part of Josh & Mandy’s day was such an honor. Mandy was so excited to be #finallyajackson! I happened to see that Mandy posted the sweetest thing on Facebook the night she and Josh got engaged. and I hope she doesn’t mind me sharing some of it here. It gives you a glimpse into the beautiful relationship of trust and love these two have.
“As a little girl I dreamt of you. The man who would steal my entire heart and make me the happiest woman alive. 8 years ago you walked into my life and showed me that dreams do come true. This man has stood by me. He took my heart and held it tight. He showed me that true love does exist and that I was worth the love that I thought only existed in fairytales. Life has thrown us so many obstacles and blessings. My heart may be a bit weak but it’s only because it is filled with so much love. Tonight was a night I will never forget as this very special man asked me to be his wife. I love you more than words.”
I can only hope these images do your fairytale justice, J&M .. much love to both of you!

And Mandy’s grandma…a very special lady in Mandy’s life.
I think Grandma made a joke about running away with Josh because he was so handsome. We were all laughing so hard!
We slipped outside for some sunset and night portraits.
Congratulations, Josh & Mandy!
