Sanctuary Event Center Wedding in Fargo | Ashley & Matt | Kris Kandel Photographer

Posted in: fargo, Uncategorized, weddings

Ashely & Matt’s wedding day was full of dramatic weather. A DARK thunderstorm with torrential rain, wind and even a flicker of power outage!! Needless to say we started photos inside, so thankful to be at the fantastic Sanctuary Event Center! Nothing kept these two from fully enjoying and celebrating their wedding day!

The sanctuary event center gave us lots of backgrounds for indoor photos!

I loved this corner with the rain covered windows!

They even got to ring the old church bell!

Then the wedding party joined us as the last of the storm blew over.

It was still pretty windy (See the leaves in the trees!) but everyone was great sports about getting a few outdoor photos before family arrived.

Matt and several of the guys are big into soccer, coaching and playing, so of course they had to kick a ball around for a while!

Then we took ten minutes to get a few more of the bride and groom outside. Downtown Fargo sure has some fantastic backdrops!

Ceremony time!

And then a quick walk downtown to a pub for a quick Moscow mule.

The toasts at the reception had everyone laughing and the groom blushing.

While we were downstairs in the reception the staff converted the upper level into a dance floor, turning on uplights and got the place ready for a party!

Thanks for an amazing day everyone!! You were all such great sports about the weather, running around downtown, and enjoying the day!

I’ll have your full gallery ready for you next week, until then I hope you enjoy these teasers, feel free to share this blog post with your friends and family!!
