I don’t think I have ever seen a smile so big or eyes so full of gratefulness… and I’m not just talking about Ryan here. Brittany lights up any room she enters but she will be the first to deflect it to someone else. See, these two live life to reflect light and love, a testament to how and why they came together. During a church service this past winter, a prophet from Africa was visiting and told two random people in the audience that he would be attending their wedding within the year. Neither were in a relationship and were just friendly to one another. These two thought since the pairing seemed divine, they should give it a try! Nine months later, here we are at Bearpath Country Club, celebrating the union of these two friends and now partners in life and ministry. Wow, just where you think you have seen it all, the good Lord sends you Brittany and Ryan and your heart is suddenly expanded!

Duluth is a special place for my family. We have seen it in many seasons, but no one would have believed we would hit 65 and sunny in early November for Molly & Carson. All the fun actually started with these two last year when I was asked to fly to Bozeman for a ridiculous engagement session that went from brewery, to food trucks, and ended with Carson catching a rainbow trout with Molly. Check it out here! I knew that would be hard to beat, but when you put that many awesome people together in one enchanted space such as the Greysolon Ballroom, more magic was in store! With their friends, we explored the city, Pier B, and the lift bridge along the shore before heading in for the party of their life, thanks to the help of Janelle Vick, of White Confetti. Even Blackwater seem too good to be true as following the ceremony all their favorite people were poured classic throwback drinks to toast to a long life of adventure.

I have a crush. It first started on the island of Puerto Rico when Jay and Fawn approached me at their friends, Sam and Chanel’s, beach wedding. Who can blame me? It’s hard not to fall for people in life you feel are so perfectly paired and who genuinely care deeply for those around them. Jay and I bonded over our love of pottery and Fawn and I hit it off with all things stylish. I knew this wedding in the hills of Los Angeles would be one for the books!

Rain in LA? This maybe happens fifteen times a year. So when the forecast called for drizzle, I packed my huge golf umbrella from Minnesota and boarded a plane to the ceremony. The clouds parted just in time for us to huddle under an old gnarly beach tree for the two to say their vows and exchange tears of gratefulness. Rain fell to bless the union as night set in. I had scouted a spot overlooking the epic city lights where we could take in the beauty and reflect on the day. All in attendance would agree that this eve of Halloween will be tough to beat.
