Rustic Oaks Wedding Photography Brian & Alyssa

Although I’ve been photographing weddings in the Fargo-Moorhead area for quite some time, this was the first time I had photographed at Rustic Oaks! I was looking forward to being a part of Brian & Alyssa’s wedding ever since our initial meeting AND their adorable engagement session (See here!) last fall.  These two are a sweet and stylish couple and their wedding day was no different. Enjoy a peek at some of my favorites from the day!

Alyssa’s dress was jaw dropping gorgeous!

    Terrific pictures, as usual! I especially loved the ones of the guys together. They looked so natural & so goofy and you just wonder what was going through their heads. At first I was a little disappointed in the beginning photos of the dress & flowers etc. because I thought, “Oh no! Abby always has the BEST lighting, & I can’t make out the details of the dress. What happened?” Then I discovered if I just tilt my computer screen back a little, everything looked perfect; and boy the lighting was terrific! Oh crazy me.
