Christian and Mindy’s wedding day was such a perfect summer day. Minnesota has been having lots of smoke from wildfires in Canada, but it was all clear for Christian and Mindy’s day!
The girls got ready at Fitger’s Inn right on Lake Superior. Christian and Mindy love to walk by the lake, so getting ready near one of their favorite places was the perfect setting. Mindy shared a first look with her dad and it was the sweetest moment. I know I was tearing up!
After the first look with her Dad, Mindy and Christian shared their first look before we headed down the block to the Duluth Rose Garden for more photos, bridal party photos, and family photos. Then it was off to the church to get them married!
Their ceremony was such a special one to them! They chose to have some congregational songs and it was so sweet to see them singing their hearts out with the people they love! Once they were hitched, we drove up the North Shore of Lake Superior to a little marina for some Just Married pictures! Then it was time for their entrance!
I always love the speech time at weddings because it allows me to get to know the bride and groom better through their best friends eyes. Christian and Mindy’s friends and family shared the sweetest stories with everyone and I’m pretty sure most of the guests cried—the stories were just so sweet!
Once the speeches were over, the real party started and everyone danced the night away!
Christian and Mindy, getting to know you both has been the biggest joy! You radiate the love of Jesus and are so sweet! Thank you for trusting me with the honor of photographing your wedding. It really was the best day.

Sam and Abbie's Altoona, IA engagement session at Pine Hollow Stables was a horse lovers dream. We spent the whole evening walking around the pasture and even visited the spot where they got engaged!
