Trollwood Bluestem Wedding | Sydney & Abram | Kris Kandel Photographer

Posted in: fargo, weddings

Sydney & Abram’s wedding day at The Bluestem Center in Moorhead could not have been more perfect! We kept saying all day “Is this real? It’s all going so smoothly and the weather is perfect, and … wow”

First look time!

Abram and Sydney were so happy all day. It makes my job such a joy!

Abram asked to start with a few photos including his car in the background. You may remember their engagement session included the same car. 🙂 Abram was so excited and yelled out,”New desktop photo!”

Perfect golden leaves. Perfect golden laughter.

I could photograph you two all day (which I did, but seriously, all the giddy photographer feelings going on here!).

Sydney’s bouquet was one of the most unique bouquets I’ve ever seen. It was made from WOOD! Seriously. The flowers were folded and layered and cut sheets of lightweight wood dyed in different colors. Stunning!

The romance is strong with you two.


Then the wedding party joined us for another loop around the Bluestem property!

These ladies were so amazing! All the laughter!!

Cheers and leaves and kisses. #goals

Another favorite!

After family photos Abram and Sydney exchanged letters.

How cool is Abram’s ring?!

Here you can see a bit more of the wooden flower’s texture:

And then it was time for the LONG walk to the pavilion for the wedding ceremony.

Instead of a unity candle or sand Sydney & Abram potted a plant. How cool is that?!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs!!!

The next photo kind of cracks me up. It can be challenging to work around all the other cameras sometimes, but sometimes it’s kind of hilarious too!

Toasts are always a fun time!

After dinner and the toasts we stepped outside for a few sunset portraits of the bride & groom. How gorgeous did these turn out?! I LOVE the big skies around Fargo!

Love this angle my second photographer (thanks sis) got!

The first dance was so sweet!

And then the dance floor filled up!

I absolutely adore wedding dances that include a live band! Heart & Soul was amazing to work with, if you are planning an event be sure to check them out!!

What an epic wedding day! Thank you Sydney & Abram for inviting me to be part of it! I had a blast working with you! I hope you enjoyed these personal favorites of mine. I’ll be sending you the link to download and share your images soon. 🙂
