Casey and Diana’s Moorish Room Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Casey and Diana’s officiant, wrote a special poem to celebrate their love and recite during the ceremony It goes something like this.

“Love Me Tinder” by Tyler

A boy who operates trains
And a girl who loves Norah Jones
Were seeking companionship
Using only their phones

Vigorous swiping occurred
So fast as to let a breeze in
For her, Just in “Case”
For him, He was looking for a good Kirzan

The two connected
As a result of impeccable game
What had started as a dry, flammable material used for lighting fire
Had ignited into a glorious orange flame

The attraction was pungent
Much like a sweet vermouth
A young love would blossom
And lead them to Duluth

Love me tinder
As far as the eye can see
And thus ends the story
Of how Casey for the D

Addam and Dawn’s Greysolon Moorish Room Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Bride and groom portrait outside in fall colors.

Addam and Dawn met for the first time in spring of 2013. Addam was working at the Dungeon’s End Game Store, which is where they first met. At the time, both Addam and Dawn were seeing other people. Dawn thought that he was nice, fun to talk to, funny, and cute, so she took his business card to keep in touch because she felt he was going to be important to her. A few months passed and they were both single, so Dawn contacted him and they started talking a lot. They officially started dating on October 22, 2013, so their wedding day is also their three year anniversary.

Addam tried to keep the plans of his proposal a secret, but he ended up asking Dawn to help pick out the ring, knowing her well enough to know that she likes certain styles and wanting to make sure she would be happy with the choice. After they had picked out the ring, Addam kept it for about a month, waiting for the perfect time to propose. One day when they were getting ready to go out for the day, Addam took Dawn’s hands into his and began saying very sweet, loving things. Dawn, in her excitement, blurted out, “Are you doing what I think you’re doing?!” Addam likes to joke that her little outburst ruined the moment because he immediately lost track of his speech and just handed her the ring. It was an honest and heartfelt proposal, and the outburst somehow made it all the sweeter.

This geeky couple decided to have their wedding at the Greysolon Moorish Room in Duluth, MN. The couple, both proud nerds, had Dr. Who themed wedding essentials, including an origami bouquet with all the Dr. Who characters on it for Dawn, and a matching boutonniere for Addam. Fandoms collided at this celebration of love, and the couple will happily be together forever through time and space.

Patrick and Haley’s Greysolon Moorish Room Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Featured photo of the bride and groom.

This wedding at the Greysolon Moorish Room in Duluth was the perfect ending to the first chapter in the story of Patrick and Haley. Their modern fairy-tale began in January of 2014 when they met while working at the Minneapolis Tattoo Convention. Their booths happened to be right next to each other and a friendship quickly formed. That evening, while walking to a local bar for drinks, Patrick saved Haley from falling on the icy sidewalk, and at that moment she knew she had met someone special.

Over the next few months, they kept in touch by phone and text messaging, finding that they had many interests in common with each other. Other relationships had fizzled out, and finally Patrick called to ask Haley for a date. Sparks flew that evening, and soon they were spending every weekend together. Several months later they moved in together, and Haley had officially found her knight in shining tattoos!

Patrick’s proposal added a sweet and creative touch to the tale. At a family Easter egg hunt, he hid a ring in a very special golden egg and had Haley’s mom hide it in the yard among the others. Everyone was told not to touch that egg. When Haley finally went to open it, Patrick yelled “Will you marry me?”, and, of course, she said “Yes!”.

Their romantic wedding at the beautiful Moorish Room was a wonderful time shared with their closest family and friends. Haley was a vision in her gorgeous white gown and glowed with sheer happiness. Patrick wore black and red and was particularly dapper in his top hat and boutonniere of red roses. The unique creativity of the couple was clearly evident in their stylish celebration, and I love how that shows in the photos of their big day.

I had a wonderful time with Haley and Patrick at their wedding. I wish them every happiness as they begin the next chapter in the story of their lives together.

Tom and Jenny’s Intimate Greysolon Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Duluth Greysolon Moorish Room Wedding

This intimate Sunday brunch wedding at the Moorish Room in Duluth’s Greysolon Plaza was a day that Tom and Jenny will always remember. While they were acquaintances in school, they had traveled separate paths for many years. Their journeys came together again when they ran into each other at a high school reunion. Sparks flew between them as they realized the very real connection they had, and now they have taken the next step in life together.

The couple was joined by their children, grandchildren, and their closest friends to celebrate this very special day. The beautiful bride walked down the aisle with her father, which was a very sweet and wonderful moment. As Tom and Jenny said their vows and pinky-swore to be true to each other forever, the love in the room was almost overwhelming.

My favorite part of their big day was the time I spent with the newlyweds in Leif Erikson Park. The views of the Aerial Lift Bridge and Lake Superior were simply stunning. The sun shone on the couple as they visited the park bench where Tom proposed to Jenny, and they enjoyed a tender moment alone together before joining their guests for Sunday brunch.

Congratulations to the bride and groom! Here’s to second chances and lasting love.
