Grand Marais, MN Wedding Photographer | Nicole + Kevin Part 1

This was my first time getting to shoot a wedding in the area I grew up.  When Nicole first contacted me about her wedding in Grand Marais my first thought was "I HAVE to book this wedding!"  Luckily Nicole did book me and on June 6th I made my way an hour up the short of Lake Superior from my hometown for the beautiful wedding of Nicole and Kevin.

Nicole had a beautiful (and very appropriate) nature/wood theme for her wedding and every moment of the day I was blown away by yet another piece of decoration or idea she had to pull the theme together.  Who knew tree bark could have so many uses?   I've decided to break Nicole and Kevin's wedding post into 2 and dedicate this first one to their details instead of doing a teaser.  The next post (Monday) will be of their beautiful ceremony, portraits, and reception.  So be sure to check back for that!

Yes, that first picture is of a bark aisle runner!  Beautiful, isn't it?
This is definitely a table set up I will never forget.
 Thanks to this handmade tree bark basket, Nicole's pup got to walk down the aisle in style!

 Blue rubber boots to match her dress?  Awesome.

Can't forget a beautiful ring to match as well!

Beautiful, huh?  OK, stay tuned.  Next week I will have more from this amazing wedding.  And in the meantime, I'm off to shoot two weddings in two days in two different states that will require me to take two different planes in between.  Wish me luck!
