Here's our last wedding of 2013!  Michelle and Max's wedding was held at Grand Superior Lodge.  It was a bit chilly out but otherwise the weather was perfect for their outdoor wedding.  The wedding party was a blast and kept us busy all day.  We had a great time working with Michelle, Max and their family and friends.  Here's a few images from their wedding day!

We met Lindsey and Derek at Saint Anthony Main for their engagement session.  We did a lot of walking and covered a lot of ground.  The payoff was some great images.  Looking forward to their wedding next year!

Molly & Jay - Wedding | Glensheen Historic Estate

Molly and Jay and their friends and family traveled from North Dakota for a destination wedding in Duluth.  We met Molly at the Language of Hair salon, then went to the Olcott House bed and breakfast for makeup and final touches.  Jay and the guys were down at the Fitgers Brewhouse so Matt met them there and then everyone made their way to Glensheen for pictures and the wedding ceremony.  The weather was pretty rough, but the rain held off and allowed the outdoor ceremony to go forward.  It was a fun crowd on the dance floor!  Here's some images from their wedding day!

Lauren & Brad - Wedding | Summit Chalet, Lutsen Mountain

Brad was waiting for Lauren and us at Cascade River State Park a few miles north of Lutsen Mountain where we picked up Lauren.  Their first look was within site of the falls.  After a few pictures, we headed back to Lutsen Mountain, and boarded the tram to the Summit Chalet where the wedding and reception were to take place.  We met the wedding party at the top of the mountain, and got some great pictures with the fall color.  During the ceremony, it started to rain, but only lasted as long as the outdoor ceremony, and didn't rain again that evening.  Awesome location and adventure for a wedding, and a beautiful couple to work with.  Here's a few images of their wedding day!

Holly & Paul - Wedding | Wild Mountain, Taylors Falls, MN

Holly and Paul's wedding was held at Wild Mountain in Taylors Falls.  It was a perfect September day, and they decorated in a autumn theme.  I can't imagine the amount of pumpkin carving that went on the night before the wedding, but it was impressive!  This wedding also had a first for us, one where the guest exited the mountain-top ceremony via alpine slide.  We even made it down the slide without breaking any equipment!  Here's a few images from their wedding day!

Lacey & Nick - Wedding | Glensheen Historic Estate

Glensheen Mansion in Duluth is always a great location to shoot a wedding and Lacey and Nick's was no exception.  The day started with overcast skies and threatening rain, but the sun came out at the start of their ceremony and stayed out the rest of the day.  To see some images from their engagement session, click here.  Lacey and Nick were great to work with and we're very happy they chose us to cover their wedding day.  Here's some images from their wedding!

Christy & Ryan - Wedding | Grand Superior Lodge

Christy and Ryan's wedding ceremony was held outdoors at Grand Superior Lodge.  The weather did not disappoint and was just about perfect for their day.  After the ceremony, we took a few pictures, then headed down the shore to the Clearwater Event Center for their dinner and reception.  Here's a few images from their wedding day!

Mary & Andrew - Wedding | White Bear Lake

We spent all day with Mary and Andrew for their wedding.  Kelly started in the morning with the girls at the salon and I met the guys later on at Kellerman's Event Center which was to be the ceremony site and the venue for the reception.  We've known Mary for a long time and we were thrilled and honored when she and Andrew asked us to capture their wedding day.  We also got to work with one of our favorite videographers, Brad Rich.  You can see his take of their wedding day here.

Katelyn & Lukas - Wedding | Madeline Island, WI

This wedding adventure took place on Madeline Island near Bayfield, WI.  The house Katelyn and Lukas rented for the occasion was situated on the shore of Lake Superior.  The day started for us with a ferry ride over to the island and then we made our way to the house.  The wedding itself was an intimate affair with about 40 friends and family in attendance.  By early afternoon the haze burned off and the sun came out, warming up enough to have the dance outdoors as planned.  The evening wrapped up with everyone setting off sky lanterns, an amazing sight!

Katie & Jurgen - Wedding | Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

This wedding was kind of like repeat business, we photographer Katie's brother's wedding last fall.  It was great to see some familiar faces and meet new people!  Katie and Jurgen's wedding was held at the beautiful Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  You can see their engagement session here.  It was suppose to be an outdoor wedding but a fast moving rain storm moved things indoors.  We were still able to get outside for a few pictures.  Following the ceremony the sun came out and we made our way to the Oak Ridge Hotel and Conference Center for the reception and dance.  Here's a few images from their wedding day!

Julie & Mike - Wedding | Grand Superior Lodge, Two Harbors, MN

The weather was perfect for Julie and Mike's wedding day at Grand Superior Lodge on the north shore of Lake Superior.  You may recall their engagement session last fall in Minneapolis.  Being the perfect day it was, there was a pretty good crowd at Gooseberry Falls, but due to impeccable timing we managed to get some great shots with no stray people in the background.  After the ceremony back at the lodge there was a bit of downtime to relax and get a few shots and then it was time for dinner and dancing.  The dance floor was full and it was quite a party.  Here are a few shots from the day:
