Nicole and Adam’s Greysolon Ballroom wedding in Duluth, MN was simply stunning. From the gorgeous dress, to the heartwarming speeches, to the scrumptious desserts everything about their wedding was perfect.
Let me take you back, seven years, to one fateful day. Nicole was at the gym. Adam was at that very same gym. Eyes met. Interest was piqued. They agreed to go out and…the date went terribly (their words, not mine)! Thankfully, they decided to give it another shot, and this time the stars aligned and it was magical. Since then, the two have grown and built a life together, their love intensifying with each passing day.
Nicole and Adam are definitely a power couple. They know what they want and they know how to get the job done. If I’m being honest, I was a bit intimidated by them at first. Here was this beautiful couple that radiated confidence and there I was, a lady hoping to make a good impression. Of course, as I got to know them during their engagement, my intimidation quickly went away and it morphed into the utmost respect and admiration.
With that said, it was no surprise to me that their wedding was 100% class, dripping with sophistication and poise. The care and time that was put into each place setting, each centerpiece, even the welcome bags showed a keen eye to detail that did not go unnoticed, or unappreciated, by their guests.
As the day progressed, the nerves that Nicole and Adam felt earlier in the day melted away into sheer and utter bliss. They danced the night away among their closest friends and family, and never missed an opportunity to get down and funky.
Nicole and Adam’s wedding was a wonderful way to start off my 2018 wedding season. Everything about the day was perfect, even the weather which is saying a lot for winter in Minnesota. My special wish to the happy couple: may you have a lifetime of happiness and an endless amount of discovery and adventure!!

Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
