Hey there! We took a trip to Dublin, Ireland and thought I would share some of the beauty and goodness! Before I dive in – a little disclaimer: I’m not going to get into a bunch of history and specific info about this beautiful country and city, as you can research that on your own. […]

I had about as perfect winter day with Julie, Nathan and Annie as you could ever dream to have. From the serine and beautiful surroundings of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, to the warm (Minnesota warm, that is) winter day, and the festive light show for the holiday season!

Juliana felt the same, and they knew they would always be together. On a crispy December day, surrounded by their family and friends, […]

Adam (with a little help from his adorable sister Anna and his future mother-in-law Chris) raised the proposal bar HIGH.

  There are many hotly debated opponents such as democrats vs. republicans, Vikings vs. Packers, and the Eveleth Golden Bears vs. the Virginia Blue Devils. This small-town rivalry is the likes of one I hadn’t seen before. Each community is as passionate about their own town’s glory as they are about the inferiority of the […]

Extravagant yet organic; Grand yet personal; Joyous yet intimate…. Magical. Before we get to all that, let’s start with the bride and groom.
