Hailey and Peter are married!! You may remember these two from their fantastic colorful Bismarck engagement session last summer.
If you love weddings with beautiful brides and charmingly handsome grooms this is the blog post is for you!! If you find yourself annoyed by young love, excellent dancers or doughnuts maybe this isn’t for you.
We joyfully made the trek to Bismarck, unanimously voted best state capital ever 133 years running, for Hailey and Peter’s big day. We began their wedding day at the fantastic Sixteen03 event center. If you haven’t been yet, Sixteen03 has this really great modern warehouse vibe, plenty of natural light and tons of original glazed brick which served as an awesome backdrop for photos and their adorable first look. We never get tired of first looks. They’re such a great way for the future Mr & Mrs to take a quiet little moment before the craziness of the wedding day sweeps over, and just take everything in and really focus on what’s most important, the love they share that brought them together!
After the first look we made our way downtown for some really great portraits, then it was off to meet up with the bridal party for a few super fun images before the ceremony began back at Sixteen03. Needless to say it went perfectly! Next up, the Sixteen03 chef grilled wonderfully seasoned chicken and beef kabobs for dinner. Warm, thoughtful speeches and toasts followed, then dessert. Warning!! The following contains unadulterated images of freshly baked, tastefully sprinkled, fluffy plump doughnuts!! We’ve never seen doughnuts at a wedding reception before. Not even in Texas where doughnut stores ever so slightly outnumber the population. It’s an absolutely brilliant move. People love doughnuts. People love doughnuts. People LOVE doughnuts. It’s so fundamentally simple yet exquisitely elegant that I feel a tinge of shame for not having thought of it sooner. I guess that’s just the difference between brilliance and blogging about it.
Also, if you ever get the chance play a Bee Gee’s song in the presence of Peter and Hailey. Then step back and watch 2 masters bare their soul in the art of dance.=
