Getting to create with positive, like-minded wedding creatives is such a privilege, and I was so excited when Amanda Strand asked me to shoot this one with her and the amazingly talented team she had put together. We got to spend the day at beautiful Gartneriet Kafé at Bygdøy in Oslo and had so much fun! For this shoot, Amanda wanted to focus on the girls. And beautiful bride Vanja, who’s wedding had been postponed due to covid, came with her super sweet maid of honor June. I really love to capture real connections, and with Vanja and June it all just came natural. Felt like I had known them for years, and their personalities were so fun and bubbly!! The beautiful wedding gowns were handpicked by Marcus himself from the one and only White by Green. The gorgeous blue bridesmaids dresses are from Confettibird. She has the most unique and inspiring shop at Aker Brygge, so be sure to check her out!! The beautiful stationary came all the way from Tulsa, Oklahoma – made by In Whiite. Hair and make-up was done flawless and so on point by Monica Nørsterud. And the gorgeous, lush bouquets and center pieces were created by dear friend Camilla of Markblomst. She actually grows a lot of her flowers locally, and I am such a fan!! The beautiful cake was made and decorated by sweetheart Cathrine who runs The Slice in Fredrikstad. This was the first time I met her, but I hope to see (and taste!) one of her cakes at a wedding soon!
