She remembers watching him open cards from his high school graduation party. While she took notice of his heartfelt gratitude for the gift inside each card, it was his genuine appreciation for their attendance, and kind words of well wishes written in each card that caught her eye. She thought to herself “He is pretty […]

  When I met Kathleen and Kyle over a year and a half ago, they were happily living in Duluth, building their life while planning a wedding. Fast forward a year, a move to a new city, and a bit of a whirlwind – their wedding planning still forged ahead. Kathleen (I unabashedly say the […]

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! This fun couple is tying the knot […]

I recently had the great pleasure of spending an epic fall afternoon with Alexis and Justin. While it was fun getting to know these two even better before their nuptials next summer – Lew (their puppy) stole the show. He was such a good boy and dare I even say it, smiled for the camera. […]

  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 […]

Ashley + Andrew || Eveleth, MN Wedding

Extravagant yet organic; Grand yet personal; Joyous yet intimate…. Magical. Before we get to all that, let’s start with the bride and groom. Caitlin (and her entire family) have a deep, DEEP love of volleyball. Anyone who knows the Keute family knows that when you come upon any of the Keute clan (at least the […]
