Rustic Oaks Springtime Wedding

Alec and Sarah were married on Friday at Rustic Oaks in Moorhead, MN! Remember their engagement session that ended in the sunflower field? So fun! These two live in Ohio and both work in the medical field. Alec’s family is based in this area and the couple decided to plan a wedding in the Fargo-Moorhead region! I’m so grateful for the chance to know this friendly, outgoing,colorful and maybe sliiiiiightly nerdy couple and have a chance to photograph their “Alice-in-Wonderland meets Star Wars” Rustic Oaks Springtime Wedding. Enjoy a few peeks!

A super thoughtful wedding day gift from Alec that made Sarah tear up. She had to enlist the help of her mom and bridesmaids to read each piece of paper.

Believe it or not, it was a cloudy, cold day with even some snow and freezing rain throughout the morning.
But as soon as we stepped into this field, the sun shone through the clouds and gave its blessing on the day! It was the best moment.
