Samuel and Rachel’s wedding was a beautiful event at Lutsen Resort despite the rain. The ceremony took place on a red bridge with a running river beneath it, and the reception was held in the Lutsen Resort in Lutsen MN. The bride and groom looked stunning, and they were surrounded by their friends and family who all cheered and congratulated them.

Samuel reached out to me after I photographed a wedding of their good friends the year before also on the north shore. They loved the photos and knew that I was the correct fit to capture their day. They brought their dogs up to be a part of their big day and they were great walking down the aisle.

There was a large rain storm that turned into a large thunderstorm that we watched shoot lightning over Lake Superior. It even hailed a bit while dinner was being served. It was very warm in the room and with my previous bride in attendance the bride decided that it was time to go down onto the beach and go for a swim in Lake Superior to cool down.

Congratulations to Samuel and Rachel!

Here are some of my favorite photos of their day!
