Dan & Alisha – Ireland Inspired Fargo North Dakota Wedding

Dan & Alisha
Ireland Inspired Fargo North Dakota Wedding

Three years ago Alisha went to Ireland with her Granny to celebrate her 75th birthday. Because of this very special trip, Alisha wanted to re-create the feel of a rustic Irish wood for her wedding day! Dan and Alisha have so much in common — they grew up showing cattle and livestock and knew many of the same people. Yet it wasn’t until college at NDSU, where they both received Ag degrees, that they finally met and fell in love. They were married on Saturday at Nativity Catholic Church and hosted their family and friends at the ever amazing Hilton Garden Inn. What a fun and comfortable place to have a wedding reception!

I love this sweet moment between Alisha and her personal attendants right before the first look. ♥

I took Dan & Alisha to one of my favorite portrait locations in the FM area because a few feet from the parking lot it looks like you stepped into a wild forest! I am just in LOVE with all of these images!!! I think Alisha looks like a real life princess.
This bridal hair style was just jaw-dropping. I heard a million comments about it through out the day, and I couldn’t stop staring at it myself! So pretty!!! The image below is one of my favorite photos!
The pop of color amid all the wild greenery in their bouquets is lovely.
Alisha loves traditional church portraits, so we took a few of those…
As well as this image, to show off the gorgeous architecture of the space.
Time to get married!
This was SO cool! A bagpiper played during their walk down the aisle!
No party bus for this crew! This guy in the AWESOME HAT drove the bridal party around in a horse trailer! A quick stop to honor the place they met and fell in love … NDSU!
Looking out at a sea of dear faces. What a moment!!!
This is Granny! She wore a shamrock in her hair and it was the sweetest thing.
