Here at Once Wed, we've been huge fans of the work of Nina and Wes Mullins for years, and we fell even more in love with them when they renewed their vows in Norway and shared their story with us.

When bride-to-be Jesslyn saw how much of a connection Nina and Wes had to Norway, she knew they would be the perfect choice to capture her own elegant wedding in the Fjords of Norway.

Of the gorgeous wedding destination, Jesslyn says "We couldn’t imagine anywhere more romantic and beautiful than the town of Rosendal, by the Hardangerfjord of Norway, with its medieval stone church and centuries-old baronial manor. [The] small town [is] so rich in natural beauty and cultural heritage, perched on a valley blessed by the fjord, glacier, mountains, and waterfalls."

"We were so glad to have Nina and Wes Mullins capturing the day for us. Two talented and kind souls whose own love story touched my heart, and whom I first got to know about through Once Wed. And there was also Lesley Lau who understood and shared my vision for the day and turned that into a beautiful reality — a reality that feels like a beautiful dream now," Jesslyn remarked.

The photo duo, Nina and Wes, had the loveliest things to say about Jesslyn and Martin's wedding: "We never could have imagined how amazing this wedding would be, and then Martin and Jesslyn turned out to be one of the most generous and kind couples we have ever worked with. We’ve never seen a groom look at his bride the way Martin looked at Jesslyn. With every glance, you could see his love for her overflowing from every ounce of his being."
