Fargo Backyard Wedding | Ashley & Adam | Kris Kandel Photographers

Posted in: fargo, weddings

Get ready for the most beautiful backyard wedding!! It’s going to be a long post because – I can’t choose favorites!

The first look right outside the front door of the home Ashley grew up in.

Reaction. On. Point. (Future grooms take note, this is what a bride wants to see!)

I was obsessed over Ashley’s bouquet! Those colors and textures were just unreal.

Loki the dog will be making a LOT of appearances in the photos, he pretty much followed us everywhere!

The dappled light was so pretty! This was the spot that all the prom photos were taken over the years, right under the tree out front. How special to have your wedding photos taken in the same corner as all those other memories.

Since the dike was just a block away and the sky was so stunningly blue I thought it would be fun to get a few photos there as well.



And a small pavilion next door.

Of course we had to get a few “wedding party” photos with Loki as he was the official ring bearer!

After family photos the couple went inside to hide from guests arriving and I took detail photos around the yard. Ashley’s mom did an AMAZING job with the garden and decor!!


A jenga guest book!

The lovely aunts who served all the cocktails!

And Loki finally got to have the rings just as the ceremony started. 🙂

I spy a Loki!

As the receiving line went through a bunch of family and friends transformed the ceremony space into a reception space!

Ashley changed into a cocktail dress so we snapped a few more relaxed portraits:

Reception fun! Toasts, kissing, donuts, lawn games. I’d say everyone was having a fabulous time!

Thanks for a fabulous day Ashley & Adam! I hope you enjoyed these teasers, I’ll have your full wedding gallery ready for you next week, until then feel free to share this blog post!
