I had planned to do a sneak peek blog but after a vigorous night of editing, I'm turning this into the formal part 1 blog of this gorgeous Duluth wedding! (Part 1 is everything before the ceremony and during the ceremony, Part 2 is everything after the ceremony and will be coming soon!).
Earlier this summer I met with this lovely couple and was honored to take their engagement photos. Nicole grew up around the area and showed me an awesome location with a legit waterfall right here in Duluth that I never knew existed (click here to see the engagement session). I couldn't resist going back for another round and went again a few weeks later during another session :) (click here to see that family session).
My interactions with clients is always moving me and inspiring me, especially this couple. Jacob is always looking out for Nicole, helping her through rough terrain (at the engagement session) and making sure she is taken care of, making eye contact and making her smile and she is very loving and fun with him, stealing kisses and making him laugh. They are lovely inside and out (and, like, so much so on the outside that I feel like I should be paying them as models or something haha) but seriously congratulations x1,000, you guys and thanks for choosing me to be a part of your day!
This ceremony was at the Duluth Woman's Club and many of the decorations were DIY projects (amazing!). One of my favorite parts of the ceremony is when the sun peeked out and just lit everything up, it was so beautiful!
Such a stunning bride :D!
.. should be a model :).
Some of the amazing DIY decorations.
^Such an amazing dress!
^The sun came out and added this amazing ambiance to the atmosphere as well as creating lovely light for the photographs!
^One of my favorites.. love the expression on their faces.
^This photo melts my heart in a good way!
^Pretty sure I need a dress like this for a future children's portrait shoot in the future! These dresses are incredible!
These are just a FEW of my favorites, there are so many more photos if you can believe it! Also, there's an entire Part 2 coming soon.. which is a lot of family, dances, decorations, and the bridal party, it'll be posted in the near future!
