Jared + Kayli | Modern Glam Wedding | Tyndall, South Dakota

Kayli and Jared are the type of people you know you’re going to love the minute you meet them. Both coming from a small town in South Central South Dakota, these two have handled long distance with ease, supporting each other in realizing their dreams. 

Their wedding day was mere days after flash flooding washed out most of the very few roads that lead to Tyndall, SD. Getting to them was a bit of a challenge for me (read: lots of guesses on gravel roads and meeting dead ends), but I made it and the day couldn’t have been more perfect in spite of the flooding. 

Kayli chose blush and champagne for her color palatte and when I saw her details and vision come to life, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Kayli’s soft beauty was evident in every aspect of the day and I can’t wait to share! Congratulations, Jared and Kayli! I am excited to see where your new life together takes you.

Ethan + Erin | Midwest Rustic Chic Wedding | Harrisburg, South Dakota

You may remember Ethan and Erin from their awesome fall engagement session last year.. and as promised, here is their beautiful wedding! They got married on a beautiful September day and they were an absolute blast. Erin has a heart of gold (also, she is a preschool teacher so she is basically an angel on earth) and Ethan is a strong military man with unsurmountable love for his country and his family. I can't wait to see what's in store for these two!

Erin's style sparkled in the details as she skillfully blended a rustic feel with a shine of glam.

Ethan, Erin, and I made sure to make enough time in their custom timeline to ensure we were able to stop at a unique location to photograph them as newlyweds after the ceremony. Taking this time is SO WORTH IT.

Thank you, Ethan and Erin, for the opportunity to document your wedding day. It was a pleasure working with you over the last year! 

Michael + Holly | Fresh Glam Barn Wedding | Blue Haven Barn | Sioux Falls, South Dakota

When getting married in South Dakota, there are not really any months that are safe in terms of weather, so November is truly a risk of major snowstorms or plenty of bitter cold and wind. Michael and Holly, however, totally lucked out! Michael and Holly were married on an unseasonably warm November day at one of the most coveted wedding venues in Sioux Falls, Blue Haven Barn and Gardens in Sioux Falls. Their fresh glam wedding was highlighted by the warm fall sun and we were able to spend quite a bit of time outside for their portraits. 

Holly's light and airy style came out in the design of her wedding with blush pinks, plum purples, and grays of her florals and wedding party attire. Her gorgeous style came out in all of her details! If you're ever in the market for some bomb wedding shoes that will photograph beautifully at a reasonable price point, there is nothing better than a pair of Badgley Mischka sandals.

Blue Haven Barn has some amazing bridal suites to get ready in. The light is perfect for those getting ready images that are so important, but great for your HMUP to do their job!

When I say the day was perfect, I truly mean it. From the weather to the decor, this wedding was flawless. Even the sunset couldn't have been better! Thank you for sharing your day with me, Michael and Holly! I wish you decades of love and happiness!
