I’m so excited to share this wedding with you! It is the first MORNING wedding I have ever photographed, and I loved it! The bride and groom decided to get married on a Sunday morning and celebrated with their family and friends over a fun themed brunch afterwards! This opened up a world of fun ideas and opportunities for details that you normally don’t see at weddings.
One of my favorite details was the wedding favors. They were cute coffee mugs that Mollie’s mom and aunt had collected over the year. The guests could choose any mug they wanted. Some had Bible verses, some had jokes, some said Bemidji, MN. There was such a fun variety. After the guest picked out their mug they could take it over to the coffee station and fill it up and enjoy a fresh brew. Mollie and Carl had fun seeing all the cups that each guest had chosen.
Another great detail that took a lot of time and heart was the table decorations. Mollie’s grandmother is a collector of salt and pepper shakers. After Mollie and Carl had made the seating chart for the reception, they picked out salt and pepper shakers that would identify with the people at each of the tables. Nothing like a fun salt and pepper shaker to use on your yummy brunch!
These two have such a sweet and special story. They are madly in love with each other but mostly with Jesus Christ. It showed in everything throughout their day. It was such an honor to be a part of their day and to spend time with them. Such a beautiful couple on the inside and out!
As always, here’s a huge shout out to all of the vendors that helped make this event so awesome!

Bridesmaid Dresses: All over the place. They had the option of choosing their own because all 8 of my bridesmaids are so different. So my environmentalist friend chose her dress that was made out of biodegradable material from a non-profit organization, while my high class friend with expensive taste chose a long, elegant dress. As long as they were all dark midnight navy blue, I wanted them to choose something that made them feel beautiful. Because I had such different personalities, no dress was exactly the same.
