Jen and Eric: Valley City wedding

More wedding funtimes :)  
 
Today I'm so happy to share Jennifer and Eric's beautiful Valley City wedding with you. Jen and Eric are genuine, kind and downright awesome people. Jen teaches math at a college in Pennsylvania. Eric is very, very tall. :) We had a wonderful day with Jen and Eric and their families! 
 
Jen got ready in her old bedroom at her dad's house on their family farm right outside of Valley City. Then we spent some time exploring the farm with Jen and Eric. It. Was. Gorgeous. Beautiful light, lovely backdrops, and so authentic North Dakota. I loved it!
Their first meeting ::

Brietta and Kenn: Jamestown wedding

Up next on the 12 Days of Weddings :: Brietta and Kenn's Jamestown wedding!  
 
It was a hot hot hot day in Jamestown. As in, we were sweating as soon as we stepped out of the car hot. Despite the heat, we had a wonderful day in Jamestown with Brietta and Kenn. This was a BIG wedding -- over 515 guests were expected to join in the festivities! 
 
Overall, it was a lovely day filled with great details and fun people! There was a bit of drama with the wedding party's bus breaking down on the side of I-94 ... but that's the kind of stuff that makes a wedding day extra memorable.  
 
We started the day with the girls as they got ready in this very yellow room ::
Brietta's dress had a corset, a zipper and buttons. Poor Kenn :)
Oh, the bus.
When it broke down on the side of I-94, Brietta suggested it was the perfect photo op!
Carrying everything -- trash can and all -- to the new bus!
Finally, we made it to the reception!
When you eat too much, sometimes you just need to unzip your dress :)

Megan and Andy: Fargo wedding

Happy weekend lovely blog readers :) We are way, way out of town for a wedding, but 12 Days of Weddings continues here on the blog!  
 
Today we've got the wedding of Megan and Andy to share with you :) We fell in love with Megan's big smile and wonderful sense of humor at Kayla and Doug's wedding last year (remember Kayla and Doug's big day?) Of course we were thrilled when she contacted us for her wedding this year! Megan is outgoing, chatty, and loves to laugh. Andy is a bit quieter but also has a warm, welcoming personality. Together they are an absolute joy to be around :)  
 
First I'd like to share a few of their engagement photos, then we'll get to the wedding :) 
 
We explored a little area of Moorhead (and almost got killed by fireworks that kids were throwing off the top of the parking ramp. How does anyone think throwing fireworks off a building is a good idea?)
And, the wedding ::

Kelly and Scott: Devils Lake wedding

On the second day of Wedding Week, my true love gave to me ... Kelly and Scott's Devils lake wedding!  
 
I have to confess that I really, really like Scott and Kelly.They are so quirky and funny together. Scott is big into accessories -- especially shoes. He's got more pairs of shoes then Kelly. Kory and Scott bond over their love of shoes. And so do Kelly and I. It's a win-win, see? 
 
As soon as I saw Kelly's shoes on the morning of her wedding day, I knew it'd be a good day. I mean, how can you wear shoes like those and NOT have a good day? Her lovely dress was a stunner by J.Crew. She had a birdcage veil and totally can pull off the whole vintage look. I loved it!  
 
Scott wore his own suit, made especially for him in Minneapolis. It had a fabulous blue and white polka-dot liner. He wore lovely striped socks. 
 
When Helen was picking out these photos for the blog yesterday, she was crying. Tears of joy, I think. She kept saying how beautiful Kelly was, how happy they both are, and how fun this whole wedding was. I couldn't say it better myself.  
 
To Kelly and Scott :: thank you for inviting us to your big celebration! We loved every minute of it, from Kelly driving the tractor to Scott's pistol/stamen comment. We love you guys!

Rachelle and Billy: Fargo wedding

Are you ready for 12 Days of Weddings? We've got a blog-jam of weddings to show you, so we'll be featuring one each day for the next 12 days!  
 
We've got our pal and loyal blog reader Helen picking out the photos. Each time I see Helen, she gives me a hard time for not blogging enough. So now she's in charge (and learning how tricky blogging really is!). How is Helen qualified for this big job, you wonder? Well, Helen put together a pretty fabulous wedding back in 2008 and she wears skinny jeans, so I think she'll do a great job :) 
 
First up :: Rachelle and Billy's lovely Fargo wedding. Helen says, "I love the vintage feel of this pink and black wedding! Also, how sweet is it that the bride and her grandma made the wedding dress? The vintage car with pop cans, the cocktail-length bridesmaids dresses, the bride's blue shoes -- I love it all."
