This couple. This day. I probably over blogged, but I could just not decide which photos to include. Aimee and Paul just radiated happiness the entire day. Their wedding was held at the Vintage Garden Venue, just outside of Fargo. If you’ve never been to this venue before, it’s a beautiful barn that’s redone where they hold the dance, but they also built a new barn for a bigger reception area, and new this year there is a house for the girls to get ready in. The owners live on the property as well, and are just amazing!
I met Aimee and Paul last October at a local coffee house and they shared their story of how they met with me there. I knew right away that I loved them and just hoped that they felt the same way. (It’s like first date jitters, but worse!). They ended up signing their contract that night (woo!) and we got right to scheduling their engagement session, which they wanted in the fall as well.
Their wedding day was absolutely perfect. (Well I could have gone with a little less wind, we just about blew away!). The two of them together, I just cannot explain. They have this energy together that is incredible to witness and it just makes me so happy as a photographer. I hope that I was able to capture that in the images. They’re incredibly adorable together and giggle and just have fun both in front of the camera and not.
Thank you Aimee, Paul and your families for having me photograph your big day. It was truly an honor!
I have never loved a group of dresses as much as these:
She had her husband’s badge number sewn into the inside of her dress as her ‘something blue’
Her dress. <3 (And total back envy right now…. Aimee can you be my personal trainer?)
She did a ‘first reveal’ with her girls and what a great idea! And I’m loving these matching robes for the girls!
This flower girl… You’ll see her a lot!
Meanwhile the guys are having lots of fun in the barn, thanks to my amazing second Kari for capturing these:
Following their first look they had one of the most incredible moments of prayer together, I was in tears after:
That new house I was telling you about for the girls to get ready in! It made a great backdrop for photos to get out of the sun (and the wind!)
These guys weren’t any fun….
Time for the ceremony, outside on the Vintage Garden Property:
One of my favorite moments that I have my second photographer capture is the bride and her dad just before they walk down. <3
Instead of a unity candle, they put together a cross together during their ceremony
If you’re debating whether or not to take a break from your reception to sneak in some sunset photos, the answer is yes! yes yes yes yes.
They just cannot be more adorable
