First of all, I love weddings. (Big surprise, right?)

 

 

Secondly, I LOVE shooting detail shots.

 

 

Thirdly, I love brownies.

 

 

 

Well, now that THAT'S out...

 

Matthew and Heather's wedding was absolutely gorgeous! Every detail was perfectly planned, and the day could NOT have gone any better! :)

You may remember this gorgeous couple from their engagement session here! Who could forget?

 

 

Heather's dress was simple, lovely and completely stunning.

 

 

She even did her own flowers! :)

 

The beaming bride...

 

Getting the dress on was quite the chore...

 

 

Heather grinned her face off the entire time!

 

 

 

Ridiculously gorgeous!

 

 

 

 

Matthew was a little excited to get married...

 

 

Brides, you want a timeline for your wedding day. It's impossible to survive without it.

Plus, it makes everything go so smoothly! Matthew and Heather were great about letting everyone involved know what was going on.

 

 

 

 

 

Matthew, secretly, I've always wanted red hair.

 

BANG!

I love this ring shot.

 

This boutineer took longer to put on than Heather's dress...

 

 

First look!

 

 

After the first look, we headed to the Bend in the River Park just a few minutes from the church.

 

 

Boy, was it worth it!

 

 

Beauty.

 

 

 

 

Sheer beauty.

 

 

That look. See that look? She always looks at him that way... and it's adorable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heather painted this sign - it's perfect for thank you cards!

 

 

Matthew's groomsmen were a little out of hand at times...

 

 

This photo gets me EVERY time... :)

 

Heather's girls were much more lady-like... :)

 

 

 

Before the ceremony, Heather and her girls had some time to chill. The pre-ceremony time would NOT be the same without dance time to "Kiss the Girl"....

 

 

And an awesome time of prayer...

 

 

Their ceremony truly was amazing.; complete with some awesome worship songs!

 

 

 

Man and wife - WOOT! :)

 

 

Their ceremony was at Blackberry Ridge Golf Course in Sartell.

 

 

The light was so yummy...

 

 

Speaking of yummy... Since Matthew is Norwegian, they had a traditional "cake", complete with flags.

 

 

Marriage is for life guys... try and take it seriously... :P

 

 

Did I mention they had an awesome bridal party? :)

 

 

Not to mention a beautiful location?

 

 

Matthew didn't seem to care. He stuffed his face immediately.

 

 

First dance!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I cry at every father/daughter dance...

 

 

 

I'm a huge fan of dancing at weddings... I think I'm going to break my camera one of these days...

 

 

Hey. It's a wedding!

 

 

Why not celebrate? :)
