GREYSOLON BALLROOM

DULUTH, MN

 

I know everyone who sees photos of Amanda and Scott on their wedding day (and any day really!) will think Sheesh, they are such a beautiful couple, people shouldn’t be allowed to be so beautiful. And that’s true, they shouldn’t be… :)  But, they are also just as beautiful to be around. Their friends and family love them dearly and it was such an honor to watch them be celebrated on their wedding day.

My new favorite quote is from Amanda: When people say “don’t sweat the small stuff, none of it matters in the end,” don’t believe them, and hire the best dang photographer around to capture everything you took out a second mortgage to buy for that wedding!

LOVE YOU GUYS!!!

Now, let’s hear from the Bride:

The #1 question we get asked is, “how did you guys meet?”. It starts with a simple answer, “we went to the same high school”…. easy enough, right? Not so much. I wish I could tell a fairy tale story about love at first sight, walking down our high school hall, holding hands to each class, a relationship lasting almost 12 years, but I can’t. True story is, I ditched this guy 2 weeks before our high school prom and never looked back until our junior year of college.

It was over a Christmas vacation where we re-connected. We were both attending colleges in different parts of the state and sure enough, we ended up at the same bar back in Virginia, MN. We continued talking after that night and eventually started officially dating. I would drive up to Duluth from St. Cloud to watch him play hockey on weekends and he would reciprocate when he could.

Eventually, we moved out to Indiana where he signed a minor league hockey contract. This is where we were blessed with a sweet little brown eyed girl, Divot. After Indiana, we move to Germany where Scott would play his final year of semi-pro hockey. Unfortunately, Divot didn’t make the trip, there is no way that high maintenance little girl would have sat below deck patiently for 9 hours. In case you didn’t catch on, Divot is a dog. And 5 ½ years later at one of our favorite golf courses in Duluth, Scott dropped to one knee and ask me to marry him. You can probably guess for yourself what I said….

I love to ask the bride and groom to help me write the blog and give them some questions to just get their creative juices flowing. Scott just answered everything straight and I love it! Enjoy!
And from the groom:
Tell the world about the planning of the wedding. Amanda did the bulk of the planning. Bless her heart for taking the lead on that.
How you guys met or how the proposal went down. I proposed on the golf course to her. Lester lake 9 #2 on the green.
What was a surprise during the process? How bad some people are at sending back rsvp’s.
The best part of the wedding day! Best part of the day was the first look. That is when I was the most nervous and it was the most exciting part.
