Dusty and I are obsessed with fall, the colors, the smell, and of course hunting. Due to our love for fall, we wanted to have a fall wedding. We could not have asked for a better day as the weather was perfect.
I had experience decorating weddings and helping with all the details that I took my wedding planning into my own hands. I wanted a classy but rustic wedding. In order to get this feel, I used rose gold, lace, and burlap. I threw in antique doors; mason jars clear and rose gold, old screens, crates, authentic whiskey barrels, willow branches, succulents in old feeders and tool boxes, wood slabs, Seeded Eucalyptus, and Baby’s Breath.
Our wedding colors were rose gold, burgundy, and charcoal gray. To tie everything together, my bridesmaid’s flowers were Blush Roses, Black Cala Lillies, Seeded Eucalyptus, Succulents, and Wine Dahlias which were done by Connie at Bloom N House in Beulah, ND. These colors paired perfectly and looked absolutely stunning with the fall background.

"Melanie, “A true photographer masters not only the camera, but also the heart.” As we have looked and continue to look at our wedding pictures over and over you captured the perfect little moments but also the heart.
Every time I look at them I fall more and more in love with them and my husband. They give me butterflies!
Your eye for detail is unreal. What you captured on our wedding day will be cherished forever. Thank you for capturing the way we felt and the love we shared.
Thank you for having patience of a Saint as my husband is not the most photogenic guy and dealing with our groomsmen that were being shits!" - Jessica
