A Traditional Ojibwe Wedding

Dan and Jennifer Yerxa

Both Dan and Jennifer are photographers in the area, Jennifer contacted me and asked if I would be their photographer at their wedding. Gosh I was so nervous to say yes, but thought it would be fun to hang out with two other photographers for the day. Then she told me they were having a traditional Ojibwe wedding and I was so excited. She explained how she had been planning this wedding for over a year and was doing all the bead work her self. When I finally got to see what she had been so busy working on I was totally blown away. She is so talented and is a very gifted artist. All the details were so perfectly done. The ceremony was pure magical, so loving and tender. I loved the songs and the drums, it gave me chills, it was that amazing. I am so thrilled that I got to be apart of this and witness this unique event. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day, I wish you both so much happiness in your life together. Cheers guys! xo

This is so lovely! I am Ojibwe and decided to google "Ojibwe wedding" after watching several episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, and I came across your site! It's so nice to see how the couple incorporated aspects of Ojibwe culture into the wedding! The photographs are wonderful! I'll have to keep these images tucked away in my head for the future. ;)

An upgraded processor that brings with it exclusive iOS 9 features is also something that is a safe bet. Count on the iPhone 6s release date to arrive on most major U.S. carriers very quickly and soon after on smaller carriers.
