Marissa and Joseph – Bemidji Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Joseph and Marissa met on the high school golf team, or so they thought!  Later they found out they actually met when they were little kids at skating.  Marissa’s mom has a picture of the two of them together when they were only 5 years old!

These two have such a sweet story.  A sweet story to go along with the sweet couple that they are.  They went on their first date on 8-8-07.  That is all it took for Joseph to fall head over heels.  After that first date he told his friend, “Someday I will marry that girl”.  Sure enough, exactly 8 years later he did just that.  Joseph and Marissa became husband and wife on 8-8-15, and I was the lucky photographer that was able to capture it all!

Their wedding was elegant, classy and beautiful.  There were so many people and vendors that made this day so special.  One of the people Marissa made a special mention of was Joseph’s mom, Deb.  Marissa said that Deb was the one to make their wedding dreams a reality.  She made the escort cards, lace chair covers, personalized thank you’s, a kid’s corner, a personal box of activities for each child, and so much more.  One of my favorite things she did was the “guest book”.  She put together a shadow box frame with a personalized gold heart in the center designed by Ken K Thompson.  Guests sign a paper heart and then drop it into the shadow box.  It was so cool!  Make sure to check it out in the images below!

Marissa and Joseph, your day was gorgeous!  It was such an honor to be the one to photograph it!  I wish you the best!
