We are taking full advantage of the “warmer then normal” November temperatures and heading to the beach at every opportunity!

Andrew & Tessa married! Part 1

This post is long over due and I’m sort of at a loss for words regarding this beautiful day!

Tessa & Andrew got married at Rustic Oaks in Moorhead, MN which happens to be where Andrew grew up! His parents turned the beautiful barn and surrounding property into a stunning wedding venue! It was such an honour to be asked to photograph this wedding and to capture all the wonderful details that went into creating this beautiful day!

Tessa sent me an email last winter and I immediately felt a connection and was drawn to their love story. When the big day finally came, hubby and I packed our boys and a sitter into our van and travelled down to Fargo/Moorhead for the weekend! The family’s hospitality upon arrival Friday night was so heart warming! Twinkling strings of lights hanging from the trees, a crackling fire pit, romantic music, s’mores, a big old barn packed with close family and friends feasting on delicious elk chili and cornbread, perfect climbing trees for kids, and a giant swing. It was love at first sight for me! And this was only the rehearsal dinner!

The morning of their big day was warm and sunny! The sudden gusty storm with thunder and rain went by without anyone really noticing! Nothing could dampen the excitement of their wedding day!

As usual, I’ll let the pictures walk you through the day!

After a slight delay due to rain, the sun came out and we took to the fields for bridal party pictures!

Balloons! This was a ton of fun especially with the gusty winds blowing them all over the place!

I adore the colour scheme!

I love being able to shoot weddings at locations rich with memories!

The tree swing was dubbed the Andrew & Tessa swing, so of course we had to get some pictures with it! These two are radiantly in love and their story goes back a long ways. Such a joy to photograph their love for each other!

Thank you so much Andrew & Tessa for having me shoot your wedding day! You guys managed to make me teary eyed a few times through out the day!

Stay tuned for part 2 coming soon!

Rej & Kelli

You have seen Kelli’s creative Sugar Blossom Design shoots and bracelets on my blog many times, but her pretty self; not so much! Well here is the beauty behind those gorgeous designs!

I spent an evening in August with Kelli and her husband Rej; partly to get some portraits of Kelli for her new site but also to celebrate 2 years of marriage! A “just because” shoot!

I love love love this field of wild flowers so thought it would be the perfect location! Kelli crafted this heart shaped floral piece herself!

Happy 2 years Rej & Kelli!!
