Dave and Holly’s Engagement Photos

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Holly decided the day she met Dave that he was The One. Four years later, they are planning a modern Northwoods party, and I am so excited to be joining them next summer at Lutsen Resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior. It’s going to be a day to remember.

When did you know you wanted to spend the rest of your life with Dave?
Holly: “The day I met him!”

Dave and Holly scored the last of the peak fall colors at Bagley Nature Area.

Dave confessed to sometimes walking off the previous night at Bagley during his tenure at UMD. Years later, it would be with the love of his life.

Andrew and Joanna’s Engagement Pictures

City: Minneapolis, MN

Andrew was a high school acquaintance that sat behind Joanna in Honor Pre-Calculus, but it wasn’t until a few years later that a real relationship started. They started flirting via AIM after Andrew got rid of his comb-over hairstyle and dorky glasses. Just think of the last time you chatted with someone via AIM, that is how long they’ve been together. And in less than two weeks, they are starting a new chapter together as husband and wife.

Andrew and Joanna started flirting on AIM, that is how long they’ve been together.

May the Forth be with You. Andrew proposed on May 4th!


Fall colors in MN are the best!

Nick and Kyla’s Park Point Engagement Pics

City: Duluth, MN Venue: ,

When Kyla first met Nick, he was so kind and thoughtful; she thought that his girlfriend was such a lucky lady! Kyla was shocked to hear that Nick didn’t have a girlfriend but later realized this was probably due to his absurd love of hunting and fishing.

When Nick first met Kyla, he was intrigued because she was beautiful, funny, and, most importantly, ruthless on the hockey rink. He knew she was the one because she was the perfect blend of confident, independent, humorous, and caring. Plus, she has top-notch skills in the kitchen.

They were always meant for each other, and that feeling grows stronger with every day spent together.

Lady in red.

Nick and Kyla look great, but Reggie stole the show.

10 years together and counting.

Back to the scene of the crime near where Nick proposed. This time there wasn’t a -30 windchill.

Better together.

Anton and Megan Sunrise Elopement

City: Two Harbors, MN

It was a week before the family trip to Las Vegas, and Anton joked Megan couldn’t go together unless they were married. Being an impulsive couple, they would just end up getting hitched Vegas. As the days counted down, the conversation shifted toward reality, and the engagement became official. But instead of getting married in Vegas, the two eloped in a sunrise ceremony overlooking the North Shore of Lake Superior just outside of Two Harbors.

It was a casual affair with plenty of laughter and a few misadventures. The wedding was scheduled for Saturday, and we started in dark during POURING rain. We hoped the clouds would break for even a moment. Instead, the wind whipped off the lake, and we just looked at each other and laughed. “Do you want to get married tomorrow?” I said. On Sunday morning, the sunrise was flawless, and everything fell into place. It was perfect, even when the pie table caught on fire. Whoops.

The Two Harbors Breakwater is the perfect place to watch the sunrise on your wedding day.

Daper AF.

More brides should wear a dusty pink tutu!

Megan wore a family diamond that was long ago gifted to her grandmother from her grandfather.

Brad and Miala’s Clyde Iron Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

“If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy. … Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.” -Bob Marley

Brad decided that Miala’s worth it and proposed at Christmas in front of the entire family. They got married at Clyde Iron with the largest bridal party I’ve ever seen and the party rocked well into the night until closing time. Congrats to Brad and Miala #ItsHammondTime!

If only the Fireball could talk at House Hammond.

Dad, you walk beside me every day.

Opie didn’t have a clue what was going on, but he was certainly happy to be there.

I pick you for the rest of my life.

Wow, that’s a large bridal party.

My humans are getting married.
