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.
