Jesse proposed on Labor Day weekend of 2015 in New Ulm, where the couple had planned on touring the Schell’s brewery and exploring the town. Jesse had driven up to Duluth the day before and picked up Erica’s grandmother’s engagement ring from the 1940’s, with all of the original stones, to use to propose. Erica’s mom had been wearing the engagement ring and wedding band for the past 15 years since her grandmother died. Jesse had the engagement and wedding ring separated, and he proposed with the engagement ring.
On Sunday afternoon, the couple was waiting for their tour of the Schell’s brewery to begin, and they started walking and soon found a flower garden with a gazebo above a beautiful garden. The couple went up to the gazebo and began dancing to polka music, which was being played by a band near the brewery. They began slowly dancing, and that’s when Jesse got down on one knee and proposed.
The wedding took place at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, MN. It was held at the wedding deck, overlooking the city of Duluth on a perfect summer day. A huge shoutout goes to Mariah at Northland Special Events for making the day magical and helping it to run smoothly, and a huge congratulations goes to the happy couple as they start their new life together.
