Rhode Island

I hope y’all can forgive me for being a bit lazy on the blog lately. Between preparing for kid #2, renovating parts of our house and general craziness at Britta the Photographer, it’s been a very, very, very busy summer. Some of the busyness included a brief trip out East to photograph my former co-worker Ben’s lovely Connecticut wedding. It was fun to be reunited with my former employer, Dave Arntson (Team Milestones was back in action, if not for just one event), and I was happy we were able to bring our spouses along for the ride. But, more on Ben’s wedding in the coming weeks – trust me, you won’t want to miss those photos.

Connecticut was great – and we were happy to have a couple extra days to explore a bit of the southern edge of New England. We made a quick stop in Mystic, CT, then headed to Newport, RI for a day of sight seeing. The cliff walk is a must; one can’t resist checking out the GORGEOUS homes famous in Newport. After a busy day of walking, we capped the trip with an awesome yacht ride on the Adirondack II (if not completely for the awesome and hilarious crew aboard the yacht).

It was a short trip, but a nice one.

Stephanie + Jacob: The Wedding

Wheee… June! What a crazy and awesome month it was. I had five, FIVE, weddings in June – each one completely unique from the other. And to perfectly cap off the sixth month of the year, Stephanie & Jacob’s gorgeous wedding in Moorhead.

Steph and Jake were married at St. Joseph’s Parish. It’s one of my favorite churches in the region – modern and beautiful and bright. Stephanie and Jacob were radiant on their wedding day – seriously beaming with joy all day long. After the ceremony, we headed to Concordia college for a few casual photos then continued on the the Courtyard by Marriott in Moorhead.

Taylor & Travis: The Wedding

My June calendar was packed full of beautiful weddings all over the region – from Brookings to Breckenridge and all the way to Bismarck, where I celebrated with Taylor and Travis. Their pastel springy color choices were perfectly matched with the beautiful June weather and quaint park ceremony location.

We started off at the Kelly Inn hotel with a few getting ready photos, headed to the State Capitol for Taylor & Travis’ first look and then celebrated their nuptials at Custer Park. Before heading back to the Kelly Inn for the celebration, we made a quick stop downtown for a few post wedding pictures.
