What began as a fateful first date at Eat Street Cafe in Minneapolis continued at Glensheen Mansion in Duluth and will endure for many years to come. Jon and Kelli exchanged vows one day short of Jon’s parents’ wedding anniversary. I’m confident they could share a few marriage pointers.
The day was hot and smokey. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, but Canadian wildfire haze obscured the horizon over Lake Superior. That is until moments before the ceremony when the wind shifted, and the fresh air revealed blue sky. The nuptials overlooking Lake Superior and Tischer Creek was short and sweet, and everyone was relieved for the breeze.
A family-style dinner catered by Duluth Grill was served. And then for some inexplicable reason an inflatable shark appeared, apparently it’s a bridal party tradition with Jon’s family for sharks to join the festivities. Either way I’m all for the traditional traditions and the not so traditional tradition.
Jon and Kelli, thank you so much for having us at your wedding and may you two bring each other much joy and happiness.
