Summer Park Portraits + Plains Art Museum Reception Associate Shot for Nicole & Co | Fargo, ND | Olivia + Tyler



Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Stitch!


Firstly, I just wanted to thank Nicole & Co for letting me associate shoot this gorgeous day while I happened to be in Fargo!

This day started out way more perfectly than I can explain on a blog, unfortunately.

The bride & groom met me and my 2nd photographer at MB Johnson park in Moorhead, where they would have their first look. But before that,

Liv took out a letter that she had written Tyler when they had only been dating for 2 months, and I will never forget how sweet this moment was.

Not only did she confess that she wanted to marry him, but that she already loved him and knew they were meant to be.

A sweet first look and giddy tears of excitement came freely, and then they read each other their vows. We walked right into an incredibly sweet and extravagant couple’s session in a wide open golden field and then by gorgeous, tall summer trees.

Shortly after this, the bridal party and families arrived at the park, and we had a blast, listening to “Love on Top” by Beyonce as the bridal party danced around celebrating what was to come.

After a tearful ceremony and a long receiving line, we headed to The Plains Art Museum in downtown Fargo, a beautiful brick building with incredible detailing, a rich history, and art on all the walls.

Not only is The Plains a perfect place for a reception because of its atmosphere and artistic vibe… It even has a unique set up for its weddings with the social hour and dance on the first floor, while the dinner is on the third floor with an amazing balcony that you can look over to see all the way down.

We got to hear speeches that could make a stranger cry (hello, yes, I mean me)*, especially from their parents.

Finally, we headed downstairs to get the party started and dance the night away, only taking a break to waltz outside for PERFECT golden hour photos as the sun set on the old, urban landscape.
