Eighty percent chance of thunderstorms was predicted all day, people!! 80! And guess what?? We literally got drizzled on for maybe 10 minutes. That’s it! I swear, sometimes I think Paul and I bring good weather with us…;)
I love the feel of up north. Especially when there’s a wedding up north. On the lake. It was absolutely beautiful! Megan would tell us how she was looking forward to the wedding planning work to just be done with, but friends, her, Jim, and their families put on a beautiful wedding at a gorgeous location – their hard work paid off completely!!
Their ceremony was at Lutheran Island Camp in Henning, MN. All the things you can expect to find at a camp were there. Log swings and furniture, cabins (of course), beautiful wooded areas, boats, beach, and of course, the lake surrounding the entire camp. Their vows took place on the tiny peninsula on the island, right on the shores of the lake, underneath the dark storm clouds, surrounded by gusts of cool, water-spritzed wind. It was absolute bliss. And in between the ceremony and reception, we took a new mode of transportation; a pontoon. What else?! Oh it was wonderful!
Jim and Megan, we have had such a wonderful time getting to know this past year – whenever we eat at Chili’s we shall be thinking of you! :) We are so happy for the two of you and just so thankful that we were able to be a part of your beautiful day!! We seriously had such a wonderful, relaxing time – like a vacation. Up north. :)
Enjoy some of my favorites, friends!! Happy Friday!! (Credits at the end!)
Haha! Love his reaction!
Annnd a photobomb. :)
Love this one. :)
Isn’t it gorgeous?!? Love this place!
Love that Paul got this one of us! Can you even spot me?!
Check out those storm clouds, friends!
The ceremony view from the middle of the lake.
We had a little too many people on the pontoon so when anyone moved to the opposite end there was a chance of tipping – and finally it actually nose-dived into the water!! No worries – we were all safe (camera gear included). :)
This was probably my favorite part of the day – so relaxing.
Those glasses are just too funny!!
Love all the rustic details.
Megan got gifts to help take care of the husband…like beer…
Jim got a book all about how to understand women…
She got a fire extinguisher – earlier this summer Jim got too close to a fire!! Scary!!
Jim’s book was empty – there are no tricks to understanding us women I guess! ;) Megan also got a first-aid kit. :)
The Shoe Game…
Paul said I was photo-bombing him all day…oops!!
Well done, Jim. :)
Haha!! Love Jim’s face on the left!
I love when my brides and grooms opt for later photos. We sneak away from everybody and just enjoy the time together, taking romantic photos of course. :)
So many favorites!!
LOVE this one.
And I LOVE this one. :) So happy for these two!
Congrats again, lovelies!! So happy for you! xoxoxo
