EEEKKK!! You ever just have a wedding that was so so good, that you leave the wedding just so giddy? That was me with this wedding. Stephanie and Kent were so amazing to work with and their big day was absolutely stunning.
Stephanie and Kent met through a mutual friend at work during of course….happy hour drinks (CHEERS!) Although it wasn’t until Kent had setup a few more of those happy hour social events where Stephanie and him started to talk. After a more formal date a few weeks later, and the rest is history.
We started off the morning by popping the cork and drinking some mimosas at the Jasper Hotel in downtown Fargo, ND. Stephanie was surrounded by all of her bridesmaids and close friends as she got ready for her big day. From her flat lays and jewelry to her dress, everything was absolutely stunning. Shortly after Stephanie was ready and had the sweetest and most intimate first look with her father, we walked over to the rooftop terrace to do an even more special first look and intimate vows.
It’s Fargo in the late fall, and we did not know what the weather situation was going to be like. Luckily, Stephanie had booked the Ivy & Rose Warehouse to do some bridal portraits, bridal party, and family photos. Thank goodness for this, because the weather was a little bit chilly! Stephanie and Kent shared a beautiful catholic ceremony at St. Anne Joachim Church in Fargo, ND where the groom shared a kiss with the bride as she first walked down the aisle (whoops!).
Following the ceremony we jumped on one heck of a party bus and swung over to Swing Barrel in Moorhead, MN for some drinks and a short walk to the reception venue, The Armory in Moorhead, MN. After some beautiful speeches, cake cutting, first dances and videos, and a sparker exit….. the glow wands and Mr. and Mrs. Kopel sunglasses came out.
