Wilkie-Tweed : Wedding Portraits : Oakland Lutheran Church

This couple is so cute! They are like opposites as far as looks go, with his red hair, fair skin and blue eyes and her dark hair, brown eyes and gorgeous darker complexion. (I just think Jill is so exotic looking!) 🙂

I had a blast at their engagement session early this summer so I knew we’d be sure to have fun at their wedding. I was pretty disappointed that the weather didn’t cooperate for outdoor portraits because it was cold – which we can deal with – but it was also very windy! UGH! Nothing ruins a good outdoor session like wind that whips around so much that you can even find a place blocked by it. Alas, I still kept checking and after formals got lucky and the wind was quieted enough to snap a couple quick outdoor shots of just the bride and groom before, whoosh!, up it came again and we hustled back inside.

The colors for Jill and Brent’s wedding were blue and black and they pulled it off, amazingly well. I loved the huge bouquet of white roses Jill had. It looked AMAZING and I’m pretty sure she got all the flowers and decor from Jolene at Accents in Alden… at least it looked like her work. She IS the best decorator around!!! 🙂
The reception was held at the American Legion in Albert Lea, MN and they sure had that place looking magical! I am a huge fan of the round paper lanterns that have been tremendously popular the last few years. They are just so festive!
