Grand Forks Winter Wedding | Carly & Randy | Kris Kandel Photographer

Posted in: weddings

My last 2014 wedding of the season was a Christmasy winter wedding in Grand Forks at the Canad Inns! I arrived for the last of the getting ready.

And the first look in the ceremony room!

Then we rounded up the wedding party and headed over to the Art Museum on the UND campus. It was so gorgeous there!

Love the next shot, it’s one of my favorites!

“American Gothic”

At about this time the manager came around and was acting super nervous that we were in the room with the vases so we headed across the museum to the paintings for the wedding party photos. Gotta respect the vases, lol!

I love playing with architecture and wide angles!

Love the next two! The tall ceilings and reflective floor were both fun to work with. : )

Guy’s turn.

Then we headed outside for a few minutes. It wasn’t too cold, but the foggy damp air made it pretty chilly for the girls!!

Love the next few!

Back at the Canad Inns we had to take advantage of all the Christmas lights!

So romantic!

While Carly & Randy hid from guests arriving I did some detail photos.

Aren’t her shoes amazing!

The candle light ceremony was full of Christmas lights and sparkles.

Then a few photos with the flower girl since she didn’t make it out to the museum earlier. Isn’t she a cutie!

The ceremony room was converted into a reception space. Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Design did an AWESOME job with all the decorations and centerpieces.

While the room was being transformed everyone else was having cocktail hour on the landing.

As the reception started up these two little monkeys were LOVING the glass clinking, lol!

There were so many toasts, laughs, lots of happy tears and silly moments!

Cake cutting and kissing.

During the first dance Randy crouched down for a few moments which had Carly laughing so hard. He’s so tall!

I loved how Carly’s dad bowed at the end of their dance. So sweet.

And Randy’s mom needed tissues to dance. : )

Let’s get this party started!


Thank you Carly & Randy for inviting me to be part of your special day! I will have your full gallery put together soon for you to download all the images. I hope you enjoyed this blog post of personal favorites. : )
