Outdoor weddings are our absolute favorite wedding days to capture. It’s even better when the weather cooperates and the couple can have the day they’ve planned and dreamt of for over two years of their engagement! Karen and James planned their day from afar, both in residency programs in California. With the help of Ashley Skeie Events, everything came together perfectly as friends and family from Minnesota and California gathered to celebrate with Karen and James.
While they didn’t see each other before the ceremony, they shared letters to each other which was a really special moment. James was enthralled with Karen as she walked down the aisle with her dad. The two shared vows that they wrote and also traditional vows in a ceremony officiated by James’ father.
After a slew of photos post-ceremony, Karen and James went on to enjoy their dinner, lovely speeches and first dances. We even managed to get in a sparkler getaway which are some favorite photos of the evening! Wishing these two all the best as they begin married life together.
