Bemidji Town and Country Club – Wedding Photographer

Another dream wedding!  Kate and Josh’s day was beautiful!  The lake locations were gorgeous.  The weather couldn’t have been better.   And most of all…everyone involved was so fun and kind.

One of my favorite things about this wedding (besides the awesome bride and groom) were the beautiful flowers used throughout the event.  Most of the flowers you see in the images below were grown by the bride’s mother.  Seriously.  They came right out of her own garden.  A family friend, Andra Vaugn, then put together the arrangements and supplied some additional flowers.

Another thing that I loved about this wedding was the bridesmaids.  They had the cutest gray and pink robes.  My favorite part of the day with them is when they did a “First Look” with the bride.  It was so fun to capture their expressions when they saw her for the first time with her dress on.

Kate and Josh had a lot of fun ideas for their wedding.  Their grand entrance at the reception ranks at the top of my favorites list.  They jumped onto a pontoon boat with the bridal party and cruised across the lake to their reception venue.  It was fun getting pictures of them celebrating!

I just have one more thing that I have to make note on.  Kate and Josh let me take them away from their reception for 20 or so minutes for sunset photos.  My favorite photos of them came from this short time.  To every bride and groom that is planning their wedding, please consider taking pictures during the golden hour.  Pictures are the one thing that remains after your wedding.  The more time and energy you invest into your photos, the more fun and beautiful your final collection of images will be.

Congratulations to the happy and beautiful couple!  Thank you again for choosing me to document your special day!  Thank you, also, to all the amazing family, friends and vendors that helped put everything together!
