Matt and Jescia's amazing amusement park wedding photos

Ferris Wheel UsSo yeah… Ariel and I are kind of (okay fine…) TOTALLY freaking out over Matt and Jescia's incredible wedding party photos taken on carnival rides at some amusement park in Bismarck, North Dakota.

They took awesome ferris wheel shots like this one of the bride and groom here, along with some fun times on a swing (remember underdogs?), merry-go-round photos, and these really great bridal party photos with the groups going down a Super Slide…

Wardrobe Malfunction

Oh and they had a fantabulous homemade photo booth…

Family Photo

And, oh and yes, they also got married. And this might well be one of my favorite "we did it" moment photos…

We did it!

Hopefully these crazy kids will be filling out a bride profile SOON! So that we can get you more details asap. Until then… slide show!

  1. Oh, this is just toooooooooooooo great. You two are going to go down in wedding history! Bless you both!! xoxox

  2. This has to be one of the favorite sets of wedding photos I have ever seen! Love – love the photo booth! Also, the colors & feathers appearing here and there are fantastic. Looks like a wonderful time!

  3. I was kinda getting bored with the old DIY photo booth thing, but you guys have restored my faith in kitschy alternatives to wedding pics. Best wishes to you both – and thanks for sharing!

  4. I say these the other day and they were AWESOME! Plus they went to Harry Potter World for their honeymoon, so she is extra cool in my book. I may be wrong here, but isn't her name Jescia and not Jessica?

    • Haha, oops, you beat me to the correction. Yes it is Jescia, and hopefully she will be filling out an OBB wedding profile soon!

  5. WHOOOOOA! This wedding looks amazingly fun. I love the uncomfortable-mom-watching-the-kids-smooch picture at the fabulous fake photo wall.

  6. not to side-show how lovely these photos are (the ferris wheel one!), but *ahem* i simply want to know about her dress…and where i can get it =)

    • saks fifth avenue – sue wong gown… it was WAYYYYY cheaper than a wedding dress. WAYYYYY cheaper.

      0 agree
      • I was thinking that was a Sue Wong dress! She used to make something really similar to this dress in teal with bronze beading and accents that I had ogled for my wedding dress for months…. stunning dress, and you just look beautiful in it.
        What a gorgeous wedding–you all look so happy!

  7. Yay Jescia and Matt! I know those crazy kids and yes, you can thank me for introducing them to OBB, though I can't take credit for planning (or even, alas, attending) their fabulous wedding. This is what happens when you marry a working artist to a working writer – awesomeness!

    P.S. Jescia, I am totally stealing your photobooth idea(s).

    P.P.S. Meghan – please post the photobooth pic where they use big white dialog and thought bubbles. Best. Idea. Ever.

  8. Uh, PS – I just realized this because I just told Jescia – Her name is JESCIA (pronounced "jess-see-ah", not "Jessica."

    Congrats on getting hitched in such a fun way, you two :)

  12. That photo booth is super insane! I DIE! Can I please steal this? I love this wedding!

    Sidebar: have you all noticed how the typewriter guest book is definitely the latest trend? That and chalk boards seem to be popping up in every wedding I've seen in the past month.

  15. Where did you get the bridesmaids dresses? I love them, and the girls look super comfy in them too!

    • Surprisingly, we got them at David's Bridal. They have pockets. I think that was why they won.

    • I bought the whole stock of round mirrors from Hobby Lobby and glued them together with ribbons in between. Really really easy.

  17. I really like the photo with the parents in the background looking in disapproval.

  18. WOW! This is just fantastic! Dude, I am now wishing with every fibre of my being that I lived in a town with an amusement park. Or one that at least had a resident ferris wheel. NO FAIR. ;)

    But honestly, it looks like an absolute blast was had by all, and I bet it was an absolutely marvellous and unforgettable wedding day. :D Aw, and how did you do your photobooth, Jescia? Was it with a computer, or camera on a tripod?
