Let me just start out by saying this is one styled session that blew my socks off! Debbie and Robin from Panache’ dreamed up an idea of a fall wedding design and put it all together at the beautiful location of BWB Ranch in Laporte. It was so fun to see what their talent and hard work produced. I’m just going to start by saying thank you to all the vendors and thank you to Panache for letting me photograph it all!

Many people have been asking about this gown online after seeing it in one of the images. The dress and tux and all the accessories were generously provided by Formalities in Bemidji. The ladies there did a fabulous job of putting it all together. I’m in love with the optional lace shawl that clipped onto the dress. It added such elegance. The shoes were also a great match. They can be custom colored to match any dress.
The girls at Panache can be involved in almost any aspect of your wedding. Check out their amazing hand written stationary!
This last year has been the first year I’ve had the opportunity to work with Heidi from Salon Sashay. If you are looking for a Bemidji hair and makeup artist for your special day, I highly recommend her. She is so gifted! Just check out the bride’s hair and makeup in all the photos, and you’ll see what I mean.
This is definitely the place to look if you’re looking for fall wedding ideas. I love how Debbie and Robin used the rich purples and reds mixed with gold. It brought a fun mix of elegance to this rustic barn location. If you’re looking for a wedding venue near Bemidji or Walker, I highly recommend the BWB Ranch! Not only is the barn amazing, but the service Julie, the owner, provides is exceptional! She is quite the artist and coordinator. Just look at this getting ready room she put together for her brides! She definitely pays attention to detail! One of my favorite tables at this event was the European pastry bar! It showcased raspberry tortes, chocolate mousse, handmade eclairs, an old world croquembouche and modern cake pops. I love cake pops. Especially these ones that Lainie Hiller made. They are the best I’ve ever had! I ate two. Maybe three.
Chantelle, you are absolutely breathtaking! Seriously.
Debbie from Panache put all of the gorgeous arrangements together, including this bouquet and boutonniere.
BWB Ranch offers a beautiful terrace with a stone fireplace. Romantic.Grandma’s Attic provided so many fun and unique pieces! Incorporating furniture into your wedding photography and decor adds so much! Again…dress, flowers, venue, everything.
