This was my first time shooting at this venue, and it was a blast. Cody and Jessica had a crazy party bus, and an overall really fun day. We took a golf cart down to the lake at sunset and took some photos, so make sure to see those at the end! If you're engaged, send me a message!
Meet Mari + JJ. I've known Mari since middle school way long ago, and yesterday I shot her wedding. It was my first wedding at the Plains Art Museum, and the lighting was incredible. Old wood floors and lots of brick. We took a party bus way-the-heck out to Speedway in West Fargo for the reception, and found a sweet spot near the river that was tucked away from the industrial park area we were in. Here's a highlight of the couples' day through them, and be sure to make it to the end for the river photos!

Meet Wylie and Brittany. A gorgeous couple with the best of jawlines and smolder faces. They were married outside at the Courtyard Marriott yesterday, and the weather was perfect. Enjoy some of the pictures of the couple, and if you're engaged, please take a look at some other galleries and send me a message!
Meet Austin and Becca. They had their wedding last weekend in the sweltering heat out at rustic oaks. It was 93 degrees, and the humidity was a bit ridiculous during our bridal party photos at 2pm. It cooled down perfectly for our sunset photos, and we had an incredible day. Here are some of the highlights of the couples' day. If you're engaged, please send me a message!
Meet Brett + Leah Rathbone. We had an extremely fun day with the ceremony at First Lutheran, reception at Ecce Art Gallery, and shots at Dempsey's in between. I'm not sure I've ever seen a dance turn up as much as there's did, especially for how little alcohol was consumed. Scroll further for shots of the groom being hoisted up and thrown above the wedding parties' heads. I didn't think 'Sweet Caroline' could be fun anymore with as often as I've heard it, but they set a new level for it being sung at the dance. Thanks guys, and if you're engaged, please send me a message!
Meet Griffin and Alex's wedding party. A mix of goofy and sassy, and overall great.
I've known Griffin for almost 5 years now. We met at an audition for a worship team at a local church. He got in, and I did not. Griffin is an incredible musician and fancy man. He received a lot of jokes about his long hair and occasional man-bun throughout the day, but I thought it photographed nicely. I've only known Alex since the engagement session, but she's very sweet and looked stunning in her dress. Never before have I had a bride who was taller than me in flats (I'm 6'2). Enjoy the images, and send me a message if you're looking for some 2018 wedding pics.
This blog is longer than normal, but make sure you see the river sunset pictures at the bottom. By far my favorite sunset session in a while, and maybe ever.
Thanks for looking at pics of these two if you made it this far. Tomorrow or the next day we'll meet the wedding party, so stay tuned and keep checking back to nicholasfriesen.com/wedding and please, if you're engaged, send me a message!
Meet Josh + Rachel. I graduated with Rachel, but got to chat with Josh at our engagement session a while back. Both are huge sports fanatics and the day was full of jokes relating to winning and losing teams. Enjoy the pics, and if you're engaged, please send me a message!
Meet Nick & Cassie. Saturday, June 24th was a ton of fun, and I'm glad I got to spend 10 hours with this couple. They had their first drink together at the Bismarck in downtown Fargo, so after the ceremony, of course we had to stop by for a couple drinks. The limo was stocked with plenty of beers, as well as 9 liters of homemade apple-pie. Initially passing the bottle by as everyone took pulls, the best man emphatically says, "No, you have to take some." It was delicious.
Enjoy the photos. I sure have as I've edited through some. If you're engaged, send me a message. I'd love to chat about you're engagement + wedding photos.
