Jen and Dan are married!! Late last fall we had the pleasure of sitting down with Jen and Dan at Brick and Barley for a few tastefully chosen Hefeweizens, IPA’s and appetizers over which we became fast friends. How can you not love people who put on international themed dinner parties and have both enormous dogs and hilarious cats? You can’t, its scientifically impossible. Pretty sure there’s even a episode of Mythbusters that will back us up on that. Needless to say we were super excited to get to photograph their engagement session before the snow arrived and their wedding this summer.
One of the truly wonderful things about our job is that you get to be right in the middle of one of the busiest and best days of a couples life. It’s even more fun when they have huge families and tons of guests like these two did! The entire wedding day took place on the Sacred Heart campus in East Grand Forks. The church is gorgeous and the attached school provided plenty of room for the dinner and dance. Before and after the ceremony we were able check out the surrounding area and stop of for some really lovely green midsummer portraits. Regretfully, Bugsy, their enormously wonderful dog was unable to make it for the wedding photos. I quickly grew very attached during their engagement session which Bugsy tagged along for and even showcased his brute strength, a few more refined tricks and profound leaf chasing abilities. The entire day was really great. Everywhere you turned more friends and family awaited, each seemingly warmer and more welcoming than the last. We felt so blessed just to be a part of the big day and we hope you enjoy checking out photographs from their day just as much as we enjoyed making them!!
