Sparks flew at a Halloween party, and these two lovebirds have been together ever since. It wasn’t until five years later when Don proposed while camping with their dog at sunset. Their wedding at Larsmont Cottages on Lake Superior could best be described as wet and windy but also small and intimate. The wind off the lake forced the ceremony indoors, but these two were still game to take photos outside in the 30+ MPH gusts. It takes a dedicated couple to make that happen. Worth it.
I’m so excited for you two and wish you all the happiness in the world!!!

Does love at first sight exist or is it merely the stuff of little girl’s dreams and fairytales? The moment Ted and Chelsea first locked eyes during intermission at a MN Wild game it was clearly meant to be. The details vary depending on who you ask, but both will agree that Ted motioned for her to come over and she came running. Fast forward a few years, and it’s still easy to find the light and smile in each other’s eyes when they are together.
Chelsea’s brother officiated the ceremony at Larsmont Cottages on Lake Superior. It was a short and sweet followed by yard games and smores by the fire, everything anyone needs for a destination wedding in the North Woods on Minnesota.

The bridal party may look happy, but the ladies were reluctant to remove their coats- it was cold!

Jacob and Kimberly’s didn’t mind the wet and foggy weather at their wedding and even embraced it. If rain on your wedding day is good luck, then these two are set for a long time. They had planned an outdoor ceremony at Larsmont Cottages on Lake Superior, and these two rolled with the punches when we forced indoors. Before the final decision was made to move inside, I asked Kimberly if they still wanted to do her first look at Stoney Point and she boldly replied– “We’ve got umbrellas.” YES! That’s the attitude that makes for great photos!
Despite the rain, their day was filled with love and laughter, and plenty of unique details including a traditional Danish wedding cake called a Kransekage made by Jacob’s grandmother, and a ring box made Kimberly’s mom. In the end, it’s the little details, and the love shared between two people and two families that make the day, not the weather.
Thank you two for sharing your wet and wonderful day with us!

Believe it, or not the clouds were breaking and blue sky appeared shortly after sunset.
Jacob’s grandma made a traditional Danish wedding cake called a Kransekage. Yes, I had to look up the spelling :).
While everyone is giving speeches, Grandma is stealing the show.
Susan and Ron met through a church group and developed a relationship throughout their many conversations and experiences they have shared together. Although their relationship was at first slow going, this couple shares a strong bond that is evident through their love for each other. Their intimate ceremony took place at Larsmont Cottages in Two Harbors, MN. It was a beautiful, wintery day to celebrate with family and friends.
Dave and Anne’s wedding focused on what matters most, the love they share for each other. Their intimate ceremony at Larsmont Cottages, just past Duluth, was witnessed by their closest family and friends. Guests sat in lawn chairs on the rocky shores of Lake Superior while Dave’s brother officiated and vows were exchanged beneath a driftwood arch. The ceremony was sweet, emotions were genuine, and the love was true. Personal touches, including Anne’s handmade bridesmaid necklaces and a bobblehead cake topper added to the fun. After dinner, guests enjoyed lawn games including bocce ball, croquet, and catch. The entire day was a relaxing celebration with friends and family, a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle that consumes many weddings. It was a lesson in simplicity and the joy of love, one we all need to embrace a little more.
