CHRISTINE + DALE

CHRIST THE KING CATHEDRAL – SUPERIOR, WI

HOLIDAY INN – DULUTH, MN

 

We’ve gotten to know Christine throughout the last couple years as one of the area’s most amazing stylists! She has been doing hair for brides in the early morning hours at many weddings we’ve shot AND she was a MOH at another. AND, we’ve happened to like her so much we’ve let her work some magic on our own precious locks!  She brings laughter wherever she is, the type of gal who everyone wants to be around.  Add in Dale and it’s a beautiful balance, these two were completely awesome to shoot with.

The gals got ready at Trends (where Christine is usually the one working) and the guys at C+D’s house. Then off to Cathedral to have their first look, formals, I Do’s and then some fun with the wedding party! A highlight was seeing both C+D successfully walk a random slack line in the park… that’s a first! The Holiday Inn was the place to be and both a live band and Sounds Unlimited kept the dance floor packed.

Cheers to Team St Arnold!!!

VERONICA + SAGE

26.2 MARATHON WEDDING

IRON RIVER – ASHLAND, WI

 

 

A two day party that we will never forget! Veronica + Sage planned and executed the most unique wedding we’ve shot to date!  The “party” started on Friday morning at a secluded little cabin in Iron River.  V+S had a busy morning of scrabble and last min details before we started pictures. It was unbelievably beautiful out and the two of them were in their own world, we had so much fun and lots of time to shoot!  Their wedding party and family joined in for some photos at the starting line of the marathon they would be running the next morning. YES, this is true, both V+S and their best man and MOH would be running the full 26.2 Whistle Stop Marathon. AWESOME.

Eventually we made it to the Deep Lake Lodge for an intimate dinner reception. Their closest friends and family were there to feast so they would all have the energy to cheer them on the next morning.  Three cakes made by the gifted Amanda Belcher from the Zenith Bread Project were quite the highlight. Then off to bed for a good nights rest.

The weather for marathon/wedding day was perfection. The plan was to let the other runners start at the official start time and then V+S and their family/friends would move up to the start line for their ceremony.  They of course wrote their own vows and exchanged rings (which are family heirlooms – and I quote Veronica “Because I’m the kind of girl who has to have meaning attached to a thing, not bling.”) Then they were off! We followed them on the course and booked it to the finish to capture Sage scooping his bride up to cross the finish line!  All 4 in the wedding party finished the marathon and then we ended our time with them on the shores of Lake Superior.

Enough said, I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story. But I promise you will love these two!

A perfect winter engagement shoot! These two had such a good vibe and were relaxed with the big fat camera right away. Nick works on the railroad so the only request, besides FUN, was to do a few shots on the tracks. Loved it!

KALI + BOOSTER

GREYSOLON PLAZA – MOORISH ROOM

DULUTH, MN

 

Kali + Booster packed their day FULL of pure awesome! Their families and closest friends made the trip to Duluth to celebrate them. Kali knew an Oct wedding in Duluth could mean anything so she prepared her bridesmaids for outdoor photos on the beach with fuzzy blankets and no matter what we were going to get those photos! A little rain, a rainbow and lots of laughs out on Brighton Beach before heading to the reception at the Moorish Room.  Their daughter was adorable ALL day and danced the night away with mom and dad. Perfect!

ALISON + MATT

CATHEDRAL – SUPERIOR, WI

MOORISH ROOM – GREYSOLON PLAZA

 

A late fall day that still felt like summer… those days are long gone now but hopefully these images will warm you back up and help you remember what it can be like!

Ali + Matt had a beautiful ceremony at the Cathedral in Superior. We had a little photo time with the two of them before the ceremony and found a “hidden” path that opened up into the most perfect backdrop of trees! After the ceremony we had fun with the wedding party in the Rose Gardens and then a much needed stop at Dunn Brothers before heading to the reception at the Moorish Room in the Greysolon Plaza! Lots of laughs and a few tears during the toasts and then a late night of dancing followed. Cheers!
