Blush, Mint and Gray South Dakota Spring Wedding

It’s funny how some couples are just lucky. When we got together for Amanda and Ben’s engagement session last fall, it was cold and a little windy, but beautifully overcast and perfect for photos. We shot with every last ounce of light and I loved getting to know this couple that I had only ever met before through email.

On their wedding day–Memorial Day weekend, and notoriously rainy–it was beautiful again. We had the slightest morning showers and then perfectly room temperature weather with overcast skies–again, perfect for photos.

But the funny thing about these lucky couples I think, is that it really wouldn’t matter one bit what the weather looked like on their wedding day, or if the flowers showed up late, or the food was wrong. None of that would matter because they just love being together. That’s what’s so lucky about Amanda and Ben.

The day may have been perfect, but even if it hadn’t been, it wouldn’t have mattered. Amanda and Ben’s biggest strength is making each other laugh. They’re in love, they have fun, and when you’re around them, you know it! We had such a blast on their wedding day because the little details (though perfect!) didn’t matter one bit, because at the end of the day, they were married, and they knew that was the best thing ever.

The day started at Hollywood Style in Mitchell, SD. I love shooting weddings in Mitchell, and this place is one of the reasons why! These girls know beauty, and Amanda was glowing–but let’s be fair, she was glowing before she even got to the makeup chair!

I loved the matching button-up tops that Amanda had made for her bridesmaids. What a fun idea! Taking your shirt off over an up-do is something you don’t think about until it’s too late, and I love that Amanda was sweet enough to have her girls’ backs. Not surprising, she’s the bomb!

Amanda and Ben were married at Trinity Lutheran Church in Mitchell, a church I had never shot at before and am now obsessed with. I mean, look at that light!!! COME ON.

I knew this lady’s details wouldn’t disappoint, and she didn’t let me down. Can you even!? That blush with all the lace and gems…YUM!

I loved watching Amanda’s bond with her sister throughout the day. Megan was by her side all day, and it was so cool to watch them interact. There is something so special about sisters!

We’d been texting up until the wedding day, so I knew Amanda’s bouquet would be stunning…and it was! I think I could have photographed her with it all day!

I love a good bubble exit from the church! Everyone was so happy, and the limo Ben and Amanda drove away in was awesome. I even got to hitch a ride.

The reception was amazing, of course. I loved all the pink accents and the lights behind the head table. So pretty!

Amanda and Ben, I’m so dang happy to have gotten to know you these past few months, and while I’m THRILLED you’re married, I’m so sad your day is over! I wish you all the happiest of marriages, and I hope you keep on making each other laugh. Oh, and GO TWINS! 😉
