Jim and Bela North Shore Wedding in the Clouds

City: Lutsen, MN Venue:

The fall colors are peaking early at Mystery Overlook on Moose Mountain. Jim and Bela wanted to wed at one of their favorite places on the North Shore, and Lutsen did not disappoint. The low clouds and fog obscured the view but added an enchanting touch to an already magical moment. It’s always a privilege to shoot elopements knowing you’re one of the few people able to witness the union. Congrats to Jim and Bela.

Jim proposed with an origami ring from the train station where they first met. The next day they picked the diamond ring together.

Lutsen, Moose Mountain, and the North Shore; the perfect backdrop for a fall wedding.

Yes, there really are blue highlights in Jim’s wedding ring.

Lake Superior was just as foggy as Moose Mountain.

John and Sheila love the active outdoor lifestyle, so it’s only fitting they shared a destination wedding within earshot of Lake Superior’s crashing waves.

For their wedding day, Rachel and Ryan had a destination wedding along the North Shore to Lutsen Resort; a beautiful haven tucked away into a private cove on Lake Superior. The day was full of smiles, laughter, love, dogs, and plenty of everyone’s favorite cheesy Disney quotes. Everyone at the wedding could see that these two share a love that stretches to infinity… and beyond.

Thank you for sharing your incredible day with me, and it ‘s been an honor to be your wedding photographer!
