She Said Yes! Lee + Michelle
Two weeks ago I had the privilege of traveling back to my hometown of Fargo, ND to capture the wedding of one of my oldest childhood friends. Some of you may remember Lee & Michelle from their April engagement session. I was so thrilled that these two had a beautiful day for their wedding! Lee & Michelle agreed to brave the summer heat so we could capture a few outdoor photos of them prior to their ceremony. (You guys were such troopers! That goes for your wedding party too!) We kicked things off at Trollwood Park, where Lee spent much of his youth riding around on his big wheel and exploring the banks of the Red River. The park hasn’t changed much in the past 25 years…so it was fun to use the grounds and a few of the park’s colorful buildings as backdrops.
After we captured their outdoor portraits, we made our way to Hope Lutheran Church (North Campus) for their ceremony. It had been years since I’d been in the church’s sanctuary. It is such a stunning backdrop for a wedding.
After saying their “I do’s”, we threw on our dancing shoes and headed downtown to the Radisson. Lee & Michelle, every last detail at your reception was absolute perfection! It was truly an honor to capture your wedding day. Here’s to Mr. & Mrs. Rieniets…(wait that’s what I used to call your parents, Lee)…wishing the two of you many years of wedded bliss together.
P.S. Many thanks to my Midwest Assistant, Jeannette! She did a wonderful job helping me at my last three weddings! Couldn’t have done it without you, Mom!
