AMANDA + KRIS
There is nothing quite as flattering as when a former bridesmaid asks us to be the photographers for her day. Seriously, when Amanda messaged us awhile back and said she had been in a wedding we shot and had so much fun and loved what we captured it made us SO excited to shoot her day. Plus it’s super fun for us to catch up with couples we’ve celebrated with along the way!
The day started off at the Canal Park Lodge where both A+K were getting ready. The gals from 2 Dye 4 Salon are amazing and pampered Amanda and her ladies all morning. We set up their first look on the board walk and from that moment on I’m pretty sure Kris made us all cry at least a dozen times throughout the day. Amanda had a journal that she wrote in over time about why she was excited to marry Kris and when they saw each other she read him some of the passages. I couldn’t even hear what she was saying and it made me cry! We were able to shoot in Canal for awhile before we met up with the wedding party at Grandma’s Sports Garden. This is the place where it all started a few years back when Amanda + Kris both worked there and became friends. We captured a few of the iconic Duluth spots and then headed up to the Glensheen Mansion for the ceremony and party. The ceremony was set up at the mouth of the river and was absolutely beautiful. From there the guests had the perfect Duluth evening to mingle in the garden and then have a stations style dinner that was amazing, I’ll just hint at that and say shredded pork and corn bread with this honey/cinnamon butter sent from heaven. Yum. We loved every moment of their day! Now onto the next adventure, Bozeman, Montana! We’ll see you guys this winter when we come for a visit with our snowboards!!
