Engagement Video

01

Sandra & Marshall first met at Mariucci Arena where both were working as student laborers (a fancy term for janitor). Marshall used to finish his tasks within a couple hours and walk over to Ridder Arena just to spend time with Sandra (and clean the toilets for her). After several tries of asking Sandra on a date, she finally said yes on the third attempt...four months later they made it official on January 20, 2014. 

About Us

02

After a few long-distance summers and Sandra spending a semester in Sweden, the couple decided to move in together in 2017. It only took them a few months before they adopted their cute (and rambunctious) puppy Nook! 

About Us

03

In May 2018, Marshall asked Sandra if she would join him on the Whole 30 diet. Regrettably, she said yes; little did she know that in 30 days she would be saying yes again. To celebrate their completion of Whole 30 (They actually only made it 25 days), Marshall suggested they use their gift card for the St. Croix River Cruise and photography session with Judd Sather Photography (they had both just lost a lot of weight after-all!). 

About us

04

On June 1, 2018 while taking photos by the river, Sandra turned around to find Marshall on one knee with a ring (from Shane Co.) in his hands.

05

On October 5, 2019 Sandra & Marshall will tie the knot and continue their adventure with each other (and Nook!).

Thank you!

Q: Do we have to do the traditional formal pictures?  
A: No, absolutely not! Our style is genuine, and that is what makes us different. Though formals are nice, it is the shots with raw emotion, the ones we get when our couples don't know we are photographing them, that people fall in love with.


Q: Do I really have to wait 4 weeks to get my images after my wedding day? 1 month seems a bit long….
A: We say that to allow cushion just in case of emergencies. In most cases, you will receive your images in less than 4 weeks.

Ruta and Sandra have been friends since they both moved to the U.S. The two friends had more sleepovers than they can count. Sandra once even switched to a different teacher in Lithuanian School just so the two can be in the same classroom.
Fun Fact: One time Sandra (accidently) lit Ruta’s purse on fire during a game on Christmas Day.

Anna and Sandra met when Anna joined the high school gymnastics team. The two friends spent many nights driving around the block jamming to Drake and Demi Lovato. If they weren’t at one another’s house watching the Chicago Blackhawks, the two were exploring downtown Chicago creating memories as the Adventures of Vic and Immigrant.
Fun Fact: They once had an entire notebook filled with “You Know You’re a Rebel When” quotes that included things like not starting your homework until 6pm and having dessert before dinner.

 Marshall and Morgan could not be more different in interests and friend groups to this day. Morgan was always interested in Pokemon and animals while Marshall was always at a sporting event or collecting hockey cards. One main common thing they share is DNA and the fact Morgan could beat the living crap out of Marshall. The one thing Marshall has on Morgan is Marshall got a Bachelor's degree in 5 years and Morgan is still going strong in the attempt to make it a 6+ year plan. He is also someone to show you how to do the “10 Second Challenge,” very impressive.
Fun Fact: Marshall has convinced Morgan to go down laundry chutes and fit in freezers growing up. Talk about someone to look up to when you’re going down or need to cool off.

A.k.a. BIG MIKE. Micah and Marshall have known eachother since baseball when they were really young but their friendship really took off in high school. Big Mike will be the dance floor captain at the wedding as Micah hasn’t seen a dance floor he hasn’t enjoyed.
 Fun Fact: Big Mike sold Marshall a pair of Jordans in high school so he could fit in on the Church League team.

Grant and Marshall became friends through Ben in high school and the friendship is still going on. Grant is by far the biggest nerd out of the group and writes a killer power rankings for the website Marshall created for their Fantasy Football League. Grant was also the one that got stuck hosting everyone on weekend nights while playing Rock Band. Even though they never let Marshall play in the band he really enjoyed the time. In high school, Grant was the #3 ranked drummer in the world on Rock Band.
 Fun Fact: Grant and Marshall share a couple random things like wearing the same number in sports in high school (22), middle name, and the same birthday (12/17/92).

A.K.A The Hooded Bandit or Skittles. Rustad and Marshall go all the way back to 10 year old baseball where he was the crafty Lefty and Marshall was the chubby first baseman. Rustad also hit his first homerun before Marshall did by hitting it off the top of the fence and rolling over to touch them all. Rusty can be found on the dance floor with probably the best beard at the event.
 Fun Fact: Rustad once threw Marshall into a wall at Grant’s place to show off his superior strength. Grant then started beating on Marshall for reasons we still do not know.






 

Groomsman – Tyler Rusted -- Friend of Groom

A.KA. Sunshine or The Rat. Marshall and Brooks were teammates playing baseball from the day Marshall started in Moorhead to their devastating loss to Fergus in the District Final of Legion Ball shortly before Marshall headed to New Mexico. On the last day of football practice, Brooks decided to blindside Marshall on kickoff. He then ran away doing his signature laugh while leaving Marshall in disbelief.
 Fun Fact: Brooks and Marshall were battery mates in Marshall’s first game in Moorhead.







 

Groomsman – Brooks Miller -- Friend of Groom

Connor is a founding member of the DOrti Club started in High School. Connor and Marshall went to the same elementary school and spent many days at Newman Outdoor Field batboying for the NDSU Baseball Team. Marshall transferred to Moorhead and Connor ended up at Detroit Lakes but the two still managed to stay friends. Everytime Marshall was in DL he would stay with Connor, and then Sheila (Connor’s Mom) would make a killer breakfast in the morning.
 Fun Fact: Connor went against Marshall and the catcher (Kirk, Connor’s Brother) in high school and kept throwing Marshall stupid curveballs to make him look like an idiot.

Groomsman – Connor McLeod -- Friend of Groom

Ben and Marshall go way back to the youth hockey days. Stein was Marshall’s teammate when they took 3rd at the Fargo Flyer Invitational in a dramatic Triple Overtime victory over Eden Prairie. Stein introduced Marshall to a lot of the Moorhead kids when he made the full time switch from DGF in 5th grade. In 2015 Marshall and the guys said their final goodbye to Stein after a 2.5 year battle with cancer. Ben might not be there in person, but we know he will be there in spirit.
 Fun Fact: Ben was the first person to know who Sandra was when Marshall first met her.


Groomsman – Ben Stein -- Friend of Groom

A.K.A. Dilly Bop. Dylan transferred to Moorhead as a 9th grader and became good friends with Marshall due to their baseball interest. Their relationship grew and became really close to the point where Dylan said if Marshall didn’t marry Sandra he would. Good thing for Sandra she got stuck with Marshall instead of THE Dilly Bop.
 Fun Fact: Marshall burned Dylan for a long touchdown in high school during practice. Something Dylan to this day has never lived down and probably never will.



Usher – Dylan Deavy -- Friend of Groom

Alan and Marshall met in the summer of 2013 at a softball tournament in southern MN through a mutual friend. Alan and his wife Bri moved into the same building Marshall and Sandra lived in last summer. They share common interests like beer and rowing the boat with PJ Fleck.
 Fun Fact: Alan sang Marshall the greatest rendition of Happy Birthday on Marshall’s 25th birthday. Alan also has a dog, Bella, who Nook is in love with.




Usher -- Alan McCaulley -- Friend of Groom

<Return to Bridal Party

Kyle and Marshall were youth football teammates and became friends through Ben later on in High School. Kyle was following his hockey dream in Canada while everyone else was at Moorhead High so when he would come home they would get to know eachother better. Kyle will probably have the best head of hair at the wedding, someone at Head and Shoulders should look into for their next commercial.
 Fun Fact: Kyle showed Marshall the “Ice Auger” which he has used multiple times in life to showcase his diverse dance catalog.




Usher – Kyle Ambrosie -- Friend of Groom

<Return to Bridal Party

A.K.A Coach. Strand and Marshall played youth hockey against each other but both were very into high school athletics when they were not on the teams. Strand was actually the only one in the core friend group that was a D1 athlete so that is something to be proud of for sure.
 Fun Fact: Strand was Marshall’s basketball coach for two years in high school. Strand ran a tight ship and Marshall spent most of the time on the bench trying to figure out the rules as throwing checks in the lane were not acceptable evidently.





Usher – Andrew Strand

<Return to Bridal Party

Marshall’s youngest cousin on his Mom’s side and a big fan of watermelon and Minnie Mouse. Marshall is the oldest on that side of the family so he is told that a lot of things that happened when he was born happened with Evelyn as well. Must be the fact they knew who the best looking ones of the family are.





Flower Girl - Evelyn Marks -- Cousin of Groom

<Return to Bridal Party
