Nile + Derek: Grand Forks, ND

Nile and Derek were married on a gorgeous summer day in a beautiful garden, and we couldn't been happier to be there. Planning an outdoor ceremony can be risky in North Dakota. Despite a cool and rainy week, Saturday turned out to be sunny and warm. It really was a picture-perfect wedding, complete with lust-worthy shoes, a gauzy designer gown, fresh-from-the-garden flowers and even a fine lookin' couple :)  
 
Nile, Derek and their wedding party were certainly a fun-loving group and we had a great time hanging out with them throughout the day!
