Natalie and Sean are awesome! I knew from their engagement session that their wedding was going to be a fantastic way to end my 2013 season. (On a side note – HOW can the season be over?! It was June and then I blinked.)
I arrived at the hotel just as Elyse Michelle was finishing up makeup. So pretty!
Natalie’s dress was a gorgeous Alan Evan’s gown in the Rand Evan Collection. It was stunning. The ruffles and detail, and the way it fit her perfectly.
Then we headed over to the church for the first look. The church was so stunning that we decided to do the first look in the sanctuary. Love Sean’s reaction, so happy!!
Isn’t this church amazing?! I felt like I stepped into a European church in Fargo! If you know my work at all you know I love to add in a bit of architecture to photos, so this was a lot of fun for me to photograph!
Add in a photogenic couple like Natalie and Sean it just gets better!
It was pretty cold outside but we did a few photos out around the courtyard as well.
Natalie you are so stunning!!
Natalie was really excited about her chandelier earrings. Aren’t the gorgeous?!
These doors on the church were super fun for groom portraits. Very cool.
Then it was time to add in the wedding party!
Poor girls were so cold in their short dresses, but they were great sports about going outside for a quick set in the courtyard.
Love the sassy pose. : )
Behind the church was an alley with this more modern building, so we walked across the parking lot and got a whole different vibe. LOVE these!!
As the rest of the group had a break I took out the details and did some fun photos with my external flashes. It’s always fun to get a bit more dramatic. : )
And then it was time to walk down the aisle. The little guy was afraid to walk down the long aisle so he hid behind the pillow most of the way. So cute!!
Natalie decided to split her walk between her two dads, with a hug in the middle. Pretty sweet.
Mr & Mrs!!!
Time to get on the party bus and have some laughs!
My assistant met us at the bar, so as the rest of the wedding party got back on the bus I went with my assistant instead. We headed over to the Ramada Plaza so we could do the cake and detail photos before the grand entrance. Isn’t this cake by Nichole’s Pastry amazing?! The detail is lovely!
I love wedding dances!
About 30 minutes into the dance the groomsmen kidnapped the bride. I had no idea what was going on so I just followed along. Turns out they took her across the street for a few shots.
Then back to the dance!
Thanks so much for an amazing day Natalie & Sean! It has been such a joy working with you!!
