Winter Wedding Photographer Fargo ND
Ryan and Alison
Good morning!! I’m so excited to share this wedding with you! Ryan and Alison were married less than 48 hours ago, and the day was a dream. Our time began at the bride’s home where I was greeted by a houseful of friendly faces, and a such a beautiful, peace-filled atmosphere. Alison’s Alan Evans bridal gown looked stunning against the front windows.
A family is rich in heritage.
We captured a three generation ring photo: Alison’s, her mother’s, and her grandmother’s.
Alison, start to finish, smiled through the whole day. Getting ready in her parent’s bedroom was so sweet….
Love this next photograph, taken by my second shooter Penny Burns from Penny Marie Photography!
We were lucky to be able to photograph their bridal portraits at the fabulous Bluestem Center for the Arts in Moorhead.
This gown was perfect.
Bluestem showing off, just a little. Love this woodwork!
Alison received this handmade shawl as a gift.
What a perfect winter bridal accessory!
Gorgeous florals by Ranee Nash of Flowers By Ranee who always does a MAGNIFICENT job.
It was almost time for the ceremony (at First Assembly of God) and we only had a few minutes….but I knew we HAD to make this portrait.
Seconds before they enter the church…..
Here she goes! Breathtaking.
Loved the gorgeous worship music that flooded the sanctuary….
Vows and rings!
Family Prayers of Blessing.
Ryan and Alison chose to use a puzzle, with personal notes written on the back of the pieces, to represent their unity.
Pastor Cal inserted the last piece just before pronouncing them husband and wife.
What a special moment!
Off to the reception we go!
Hosted at the Ramada Events Center.
The guests provided many reasons for the Bride and Groom to kiss.
First Dances with music provided by the illustrious Robert Benda of RNB Weddings!
Oh, how I love photographing these moments…
The way he holds her…
Congratulations to you, Ryan and Alison. I was so, SO honored to be a part of your day. Photographing for such genuine, loving people is such a treat. Blessings as you begin your married life!
