From the very beginning of getting to know Emily and Parker, it was very clear that these two set themselves apart as a young couple.
Sweet, warm and endearing is how I would describe my first impression of Emily. As for Parker, and even though our first conversation was via Iphone, from then to now, he was the epitome of respectful and kind.
We began our day with first looks with Emily and her girls, and an emotional moment with her Dad, Peter. And then on to Island Park with their fantastic bridal party. Erin and I were blessed to take part in a beautifully done, and wonderfully emotional ceremony. One of the moments that stood out to me, that I think is a very clear reflection of who these two are as a couple: At one point during the ceremony, while her unbelievably talented brother was singing, Emily became emotional at the moment. Parker noticed her tears and very gently reached out and took her hand. The tenderness of the moment, and the sensitivity of Parker to the heart of his (now!) wife was a wonderful thing to have been there to capture.
After the ceremony, as Erin headed to document the beautifully done details at Radisson reception- I got to spend a rowdy hour with the bridal party, meandering around Fargo in the trolly!
Parker and Emily, I hope these images reflect the deep love and respect that you two have for eachother, and the love of the wonderful family and friends you are surrounded with.
