If you’re interested in checking out an amazingly gorgeous Bemidji wedding, you’ve come to the right blog! Nicole and Matt’s wedding was just that…amazingly gorgeous!
We started the day at Hampton Inn where Nicole got ready. Since the reception was also at the Hampton Inn, it gave me a chance to peek in the ballroom to see what Debbie and Robin from Panache Events were up to for the reception decor and design. I admit…I got a little giddy when I went into the room. There were so many pretty things to photograph! Panache did not disappoint! They took navy and peach to a whole new level! The room was adorned in flowers and sparkles…my favorites! It is always great to work with those ladies!
It’s also always great to work with Heidi Walberg from Salon Sashay. She was the artist that did hair and makeup for the lovely bride. Nicole looked beyond stunning! I was pretty giddy when I saw her too. There were just so many stunning things to photograph that day!
We decided to do the first look and all of the photos at Nicole and Matt’s house. I was excited about the idea since they have a farm with pretty alfalfa fields and outbuildings. New places are always fun for me! Nicole also wanted to surprise her soon-to-be hubby with bringing out his treasured tractor for some of the pictures. I’m so glad they did! It made their images even more personal and unique. We had so much fun! Even though the groom had a sore back, you would never have guessed it with looking through all of their images. He did such a great job with all the poses!
After pictures, Nicole and Matt were married at St. Philips and continued back to the Hampton Inn to celebrate. One of my favorite photographic moments of the day was when they let me sneak them outside for a few minutes around sunset for more pictures. The sunset was amazing and those images are some of the most beautiful from their day. I just love it when brides and grooms are up for more pictures!!!
Nicole and Matt, congratulations on your beautiful day! I love that you choose me to be part of it! I look forward to seeing you both again…SOON! 😉
