Jaci and Tanner – Ruttger’s Birchmont Lodge Wedding

I have been so excited to share this GORGEOUS wedding with you! Jaci and Tanner are such a sweet and fun couple! I had the privilege of knowing them and some of their family before they were engaged, so I was super stoked when they choose me to document their special day! I knew the wedding was going to be beautiful, and that the day was going to be spent with some of the coolest Bemidji people I know. 🙂

We started the day at Jaci’s grandparent’s house. It was a special location that we were so grateful to use. They are located right next to a park so it gave us the opportunity to capture images with a variety of backgrounds that were unique and sentimental.

Look at this beautiful bride!  Her dress is unlike any I’ve photographed before.  The lace detail on the back was amazing!

KD Floral never disappoints!  These florals were stunning!  I loved the variety of colors and textures!  They could not have been prettier!

I always love when a bride and groom get to see each other for the first time on their wedding day.  I like to give them a few minutes just to be together since the rest of the day will be so busy.  It’s such a special and sweet moment!


Jaci and Tanner chose to host their celebration at the newly remodeled Ruttger’s.  If you haven’t been there yet, you should definitely check it out.  It is a great location on Lake Bemidji with an appetizing menu.

And of course this awesome bride and groom left a little time in their schedule to take a stroll along Lake Bemidji at sunset.  SOOOO ROMANTIC!  The weather couldn’t have been better!


SPARKLERS!!!  Please consider this type of sendoff if you’re planning a wedding!  They were so much fun for the guests and the happy couple!
