1603 Event Center Bismarck North Dakota

When your wedding reception brings you indoors, Sixteen03 is the place to go in the Bismarck area.  Perfect for receptions of all sizes, as different portions of the former bakery can be rented.  With room for up to 450 guests for dinner, this modern warehouse will be sure to impress your guests from the decor to the bathrooms.  With an in-house chef and full bar, the staff will ensure you are well taken care of.  Not sure what to put on the menu?  Start with hor d vourves, choose between casual to fine dining, and bring out wood-oven fired pizzas for a late night snack!


While the old Sweetheart Bakery may not look so “sweet” on the outside, its pretty darn special on the inside!

Known as the “green room” this room looks fantastic in the day and at night.  The mismatched floors throughout the room are great conversation pieces.



The Bridge Room includes a full bar and open kitchen where you can watch your handmade pizza being cooked in the wood fired oven!

Just another example of the great decor, old mixers became wine bottle holders.


Everyone who comes here talks about the bathrooms.  Individual chandeliers in every stall (at least in the girls room), what is not to love?


Adventure. Photography. Love.

Amanda is a highly sought travel wedding photographer, where no destination is to remote.  Based in Palmer, Alaska with a satellite location in the beautiful Kickapoo Valley in Southwest Wisconsin.  Amanda is available to travel to your destination wedding, elopement, or engagement. Recent wedding and engagement travels to New York, Virginia, Jamaica, Mexico, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin showcase her adventurous spirit to capture love in remote and unique locations.  

Playing with toy cameras before she could walk, Amanda was soon using a fisher price 110 mm film camera.  She found herself spending her teenage and college years with her 35 mm film camera, rarely leaving her side, Amanda spent six weeks in Iceland and Europe capturing environmental justice with her film cameras before entering graduate school and the digital age.  While still enjoying 35mm and medium format film for personal projects, today Amanda uses digital technology for documenting her clients biggest day.  

 Photography the Feels Natural

Ensuring her clients enjoy their wedding day is the most important element for Amanda. Thus Amanda is unobtrusive, capturing the day as it happens. Amanda does not work from a shot list, but instead reacts to events as they unfold.  This form of photography creates a visual story organic in nature.  Amanda has an eye for capturing real moments.  Her style of photography sets her apart from other wedding photographers.  

Throughout the day Amanda uses nature to help enhance her beautiful subjects.  Using natural light, shadows, and reflections Amanda ensures the bride and groom stand out.  Amanda is drawn to the magical light occurring at sunrise and sunset where she lets her creativity run free.  While Amanda prefers to work at venues that accompany her free spirit including backyards, farms, ranches, barns, wineries and secluded getaway, her talents allow her to work in most any setting.
