Courtyard Marriott Fargo Wedding Photographer
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!
An amazing first look!
Corey’s face! Ahh!
And a few onlookers. 🙂
Admiring that shiny new piece of jewelry.
We took the opportunity to shoot a set of portraits in the beautiful courtyard at the hotel.
Okay, not gonne lie… this one of my FAVORITE images of the day!! Isn’t Samie’s hair just incredible?! And I love this moment…
At St. Anthony’s. shortly before the ceremony began!
The ring bearers got a short game of pool in pre-ceremony.
Here comes the bride!
Ahhh, these COLORS! I could have photographed here for hours.
At the reception:
The room was filled with customized glass etching on so many details.
The Harmon Danceworks crew, coordinating details before the night kicked off.
The party kicked off with a good old-fashioned wedding party roast.
Such a fun, colorful room!
The Copycat Kiss game kept the bride and groom moving all night.
“Whose feet smells the worst?” (Corey sniffs his shoes) Yep, his.
Watching the slideshow with the wedding party.
In a split second Corey leaned over and kissed the hand of his bride. Love these little moments.
Tears filled eyes as pre-recorded messages from far away family and friends played over the loudspeaker. Such a nice touch by Dave, the DJ.
One of the best choreographed First Dance I have ever photographed!
A special message from his mom played as their dance begun, and caught Corey off guard.
It was such an honor to photograph this special day.
Congratulations to Corey & Samie as they begin married life!
