Dress by Allen Evens – the Rand Collection
The jewelry was stunning!
Dad seeing his daughter for the first time. A very emotional moment. Even I was choking up! But happy tears are good things!
Then we headed over to a friend’s farm to do outdoor photos. This is where the fun begins!
Loved the colors in the garden! (sorry for making you sit on hard rocks, but the photos look amazing!)
Amanda’s flowers were done by The Red Poppy out of Fosston MN. They were stunning! Gorgeous orchids, lillies, and roses. Amanda was telling me that because of the Tsunami she had no idea what color orchids would show up! Not that’s a leap of faith for a wedding day. : )
Love the next shot that my assistant got from the other side of the flower garden:
Enter the Wedding Party:
I just had to grab a photo of the extra attendant that showed up:
Oh YEAH!!!! Wooop it up!
Back to the church for the ceremony. It’s such a cute little church in Fosston.
It’s official – they’re married!!
Love this moment with dad after the ceremony:
I think the reception is probably the most lavish, gorgeous one I’ve photographed to date! Everywhere I turned there were lovely things to photograph! I’m so glad I have my new flashes because there was not one window in the whole room. I’m going to do a post later this week about my new flashes and do a few photos with and without so you can see the difference. For now enjoy the goodness!

Whew. It was 18 hours by the time I got home from Mahnomen. A long fun day!!
Congratulations Carl & Amanda! Thank you so much for inviting me into your special day!
