This summer engagement session in Canal Park was a lot of fun and full of sweet moments and memories. We captured some great pics of the awesome couple being tourists near the iconic Aerial Lift Bridge and Lake Superior. The weather was perfect on this sunny day in Duluth, MN, and a quick stop for ice cream cones was just what Ashley and Jordan needed. While they enjoyed the wonderful day and ate their ice cream, I was thinking about what a fantastic story they shared with me about how they came together.
Every once in a while, a couple has a proposal story that seems to be straight out of a romantic movie. The first date was supposed to be at a local bistro, but when Ashley and Jordan arrived it was closed. They headed somewhere else instead, and had an amazing time despite the change in plans. Six happy years later, Jordan planned his holiday engagement proposal. The evening was supposed to begin with dinner at another bistro. As fortune would have it, it was closed for the holidays! They decided to get some ice cream before finding a place for dinner, and then had an amazing meal surrounded by candlelight and holiday decorations.
With their bellies full and hearts merry, they headed out to look at the lights and enjoy the falling snow. In the heart of the local park, amidst the beautifully lit trees and frozen pond, stood a gorgeous gazebo. Jordan pulled Ashley to the center of the structure and said, “The last six years have been the most amazing years of my life, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you, too.” She accepted his ring, and couldn’t have asked for a more amazing proposal.
Their relationship had come full-circle through these events, and as I snapped photos of the happy couple with their cones on that gorgeous summer day in Canal Park, I realized that I felt nostalgic too. I have a feeling that they will have a life full of movie moments. I am looking forward to more of them at their Brule River Barn wedding with Northland Special Events.
