Taylor & Gina
Oxbow Country Club North Dakota Wedding Photos
Taylor & Gina got engaged in front of Cinderella’s castle and came all the way from Boston to get married in Fargo! From hand-painted bridal shoes and overflowing floral arrangements to the caricature artist and cotton candy carts at the reception, this day was filled with whimsy and magic. Being Catholic, Taylor & Gina knew they wanted to get married in a church like St. Mary’s. The party continued at Oxbow Country Club, where the nods to Star Wars and Disney would have made their cats, Anakin & Elsa, very proud. Here’s a look at this delightful wedding day!Starting the celebration with some confetti!Just look at these incredibly detailed, hand-painted shoes.Gina rode the trolley to the church with her mom & brother, ready to meet her groom.Gina’s dress was custom designed by Pnina Tournai, who is featured on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress. Gina’s sister made an appointment at Kleinfelds in New York City, knowing Pnina would be there that day. Gina says they put her in a Pnina dress right away, but it wasn’t exactly what she was looking for. Then Pnina herself came over, asked Gina to describe what she was looking for in a dress, and sketched it up on the spot! Can you imagine? A year later, the dress became a reality!So handsome in that gray hat and shark shoes. 🙂
Sweet little flower girl, looking at the flowers!Time for the ceremony. The floral arrangements and greens lining the aisle were lush and beautiful.Gina looked radiant as she walked up the aisle toward Taylor.Taylor & Gina’s wedding cake was loaded with bacon and blueberries and maple syrup, made by Kayla at Indulgence Baking Co.! She says it was inspired by the her wonderful memories of breakfast on the farm with her Grandparents.
“Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious!” (from Beauty and the Beast!)This love story was running on the wall during Taylor & Gina’s reception.Instead of name tags, guests were given balloons with their names. Or, whatever they requested to be written…. haha!Taylor & Gina were introduced and danced to “Tale As Old As Time” from Beauty and the Beast.
