Rachel + Wade chose to have a mini-destination wedding, Minnesota style. Their guests all trailed up to Northern MN on a beautiful winter day in January to celebrate with them. Grand View Lodge was the perfect backdrop for this outdoorsy and adventurous couple.
Even after 11 years of photographing weddings I still see new things all the time which is one of the many things I LOVE about this job. Rachel + Wade chose to have a secret, outdoor ceremony before their ceremony with all the guests. Their immediate families and wedding party trekked out to the middle of the frozen lake, surrounded the couple and joined in on a very rare, sacred & intimate moment. They shared personally written vows. It was truly beautiful.
