It may not have been a complete surprise, but Kota still had to ask, and Tina still had to say YES. Kota spent the last nine months overseas and would have asked much sooner, but kept getting extended. Finally home, he brought her to the place where their relationship first started and got down on one knee to ask her to be his forever.
Brad & Miala met on Match and had many wonderful conversations until complete radio silence for nearly a month. Miala went offline but couldn’t stop thinking about “this amazing guy.” When she tried to find him again her account had been deactivated. She was determined to find him with a new account. After plenty of searching, they found each other once more. Brad immediately asked her on a date; sushi and martinis at Blackwater. At the end of the night, Brad asked to see her again, and she responded: “I will believe it when I hear from you again.” To Miala’s surprise, he texted her that night and the next day. The two have been together since.
Guys are the best and worst planners ever. Ben knew years ago that Alison was the one and it was only a matter of time until it was official with an engagement ring. On the other hand, he inquired less than 24 hours before proposing if it was possible to capture the moment on camera. After a flurry of covert texts and emails, it was settled and everyone was in position. Alison knew something was up and had her suspicions but still couldn’t hold back the tears when Ben got down on one knee. After the excitement and flood of emotions, we walked around Canal Park in Duluth, Minnesota for a few photos to celebrate the occasion. Ben summed it up best with the quote below:
“I knew since the day I met you that you were the one, my love for you is growing stronger every day and there was never a doubt in my mind that this day would come. Slightly surprised she said YES and signed up to deal with me forever and ever but I’ll take it 😁❤️
Je t’aime Alison!”
Chris and Lindsay met nearly ten years ago, after they both graduated from the University of Minnesota. This intrepid couple has spent the last five years in Europe, where they have lived in both Ireland and London. They decided to return to Minnesota for their engagement session, as well as their wedding, and experience the beauty that Duluth has to offer in the winter.

Joel and Lauryn met while both studying at the College of St. Scholastica. One fateful night, Lauryn’s roommate’s boyfriend was showing them around the bar scene and introducing them to some friends, one of which happened to be Joel. The two hit it off immediately and exchanged numbers that night. After a couple more friendly gatherings, Joel asked Lauryn out on an “official date,” and a few years after that, he popped the question at the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, a gorgeous festival held in a place which is very dear to Lauryn. Perfection.
These lovebirds tied the knot on a blustery fall day at the Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Superior, WI. From there, they headed over to the DECC for a night of dancing, laughter, and celebration. Congratulations Joel and Lauryn, thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!
