Ashton and Caleb always wanted to get married outside at sunset, so when they came across Eagle's Park 's large cottonwood trees and romantic river views, they knew they found their dream ceremony spot. The couple's wedding was full of so many sweet details, such as the moment in their ceremony when they hammered a handmade box holding a bottle of wine they'll open on their 10th anniversary! Every inch of Ashton and Caleb's North Dakota wedding was decked out with tons of natural greenery and hand-lettered details, and their evening ended with a wonderful sparkler send-off. Photographer Quinn Oberlander captured the couple's day beautifully, including their stunning post-ceremony couple portraits over the river.

Eagle's Park , Bismarck, North Dakota
When Caleb and I sat down to talk about what was most important to us on our wedding day, there were two things that kept coming up: Time alone with each other and time with those closest to us. We made sure to plan time for just him and I both before the ceremony and right after so we could treasure every second. We also had a large bridal party so we could be surrounded by our closest friends and family.
And of course, as a photographer myself and Caleb a filmmaker, we definitely wanted an incredible wedding photographer to capture our day, and Quinn Oberlander did just that and more!
We got married at Eagle's Park along the river north of the Bismarck, ND. While this park had never been used for a wedding before, we knew from the start we both wanted to get married outside at sunset. The park had a large central oval space perfect for every thing to be setup, large cottonwood trees that were beautiful and green, and of course it was by the river for our romantic getaway after the ceremony.
