Brad and Miala Winter Engagement Photos

City: Duluth, MN Venue: ,

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.

I said “put a little snow down his back,” and Miala was more than happy to oblige.

Nick and Kelly’s Engagement Session at Enger Tower

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Nick and Kelly met for the very first time in fourth grade. It was Nick’s first year at a new school, and he ended up in the same fourth-grade classroom as Kelly. Despite going to the same school and the fact that they both knew who the other person was, they didn’t talk to each other much until their junior year of high school.

On one fateful day, Kelly got Nick’s number at a high school speech meet because she believed he would be a fun friend to have. Nick got the wrong idea and thought they were going to be more than that. One day, Kelly asked Nick to hang out on a Wednesday night, but he was busy. That Friday, however, they ended up going out, and it, inevitably, turned into a date, even though Kelly had completely friend-zoned him. Not long after that, the happy couple fell for each other, and they have been together for more than five years.

Nick proposed to Kelly by asking him to meet her at the Newman Center at UMD. He knew that Kelly had been going to the Newman since high school and that it is a very special place to her. When she arrived, he walked her down an aisle created by 400 candles. Right before the altar, Nick got down on one knee and asked Kelly to marry him. She, tears streaming down her face, said yes. In the flurry of the moment, the couple realized that the carpet had caught fire! They quickly blew out three candles that had burned through to the carpet. It was a beautiful, joy-filled moment.

Nick and Kelly’s engagement photo session took place at Enger Tower. It was a gorgeous day complete with a beautiful overlooking view of Duluth, the sun shining brightly, and the changing color of the leaves.

Scott and Rita’s Enger Tower Destination Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Scott and Rita’s summer wedding celebration at Enger Tower in Duluth was a day that was just about them. This wonderful couple, who happened to meet through an on-line dating site, are a perfect match for each other. They met in person two years ago, and quickly discovered a shared love for many of the same interests and activities. Right from the start, these two knew that they were meant to be together.

Scott proposed to the love of his life on a cold day in Minneapolis. They were supposed to be meeting friends at a favorite brewery, and Rita was a bit confused when they parked so far away from their destination. With the ‘Big Spoon’ and the Walker Art Museum in the background, he got down on one knee and received an excited “Yes!” from Rita. They celebrated for the whole weekend with a downtown adventure, just the two of them.

Their next big adventure began on a beautiful summer day in Duluth, Minnesota. The quiet family ceremony at Enger Tower was simple and romantic. Only the couple’s closest family were in attendance, and it was such a wonderful and special event. The bride was lovely in her unique blue dress, and the groom never took his eyes off his beloved. The day was truly only about them and their love and commitment to each other.

There is always a little extra magic in a Duluth destination wedding, and this bride and groom enjoyed every moment of it. The gorgeous weather couldn’t have been better. The fantastic gardens and foliage added a special feel to the outdoor nuptials, making Enger Tower the perfect spot for their intimate celebration. The amazing views of Lake Superior are truly breathtaking from this location, and there is no better place for a quiet wedding in Duluth.

I am so proud to call this beautiful city home. I was very happy to share it with yet another great couple. Cheers to Scott and Rita! Here’s to many adventures and amazing destinations!
