The Opal Event Center Wedding Photos – Pierson & Marah

The Opal Event Center Wedding Photos
Pierson & Marah

I am so excited to share this beautiful day with you! Pierson & Marah were married in Grand Forks this past Saturday. When I walked into the room where the bride was getting ready, I overheard Marah’s bridesmaids thanking the Lord that this day was about marriage, not just the wedding. CUE THE PRAISE HANDS because I couldn’t agree more! They chose to be married at Grace Baptist Church, their home church, because they believe marriage is a gift from God. They wanted to commit their lives to each other in a place set up for worship.  Photographing this couple was a huge blessing to me and I know you’re going to love the classy photos of this timeless wedding.

First look with dad!

And then with Pierson!



This black chalkboard wall in the guy’s getting ready room was my find of the day! In love with these photos.

It was not possible to take a bad photo of these two.

This detail!

Dad Jim and Pierson bump knuckles before the ceremony.

Moments before their walk up the aisle. ♥

So excited to be married!

A stunning reception awaited at The Opal Events Center

Duchessa Gelato from the bride’s hometown was a hit with all the guests.



A few sunset photos to end the evening. ♥


Congratulations, Pierson & Marah!
