Rose Garden, Duluth, Minnesota • September 22, 2007
I have been anxiously waiting to photograph Leah and Joe’s wedding since their awesomely awesome engagement session (click here to see photos from their engagement session), and they finally got married last Saturday at the Rose Garden in Duluth. So many great shots – I am having such a hard time deciding which photos I love the most.
It was a gorgeous day – low humidity, breezy, and warm! What a blessing, and like Joe said, God must really want them to get married! I couldn’t agree more. : )
Leah and Joe are such great sports. They agreed to hike down to the beach nearby for some cool shots. Mind you, Leah was not wearing hiking boots. Oh, I am one lucky photographer to be working with such a cool couple!
The guys are so cool.
The little ring bearer and the flower girl are so cute. They kept kissing each other. So sweet. : )
I love photographing Leah and Joe. They are such a beautiful and fun couple.
Since the wedding was held in the Rose Garden, it was only appropriate that the ring shot was done with some roses. : )
The ceremony started at 6 pm and with the gazebo right in front of Lake Superior, the setting sun made a spectacular backdrop for the wedding.
The Unity Sand Ceremony symbolizes their union. Lighting the Unity Candle was quite tricky. The breeze from the Lake was a bit too strong and kept blowing it out.
The reception was fun, everyone had a blast – the food was great, the cake was beautiful and delicious, the dancing was smooth.
Leah and Joe’s first dance.
Joe danced with his mom.
Oh, the bouquet toss was awesome. I love this photo!
Joe trying to remove the garter belt. Took some work! LOL
And the dancing continued.
Congratulations again, Leah and Joe, it was a beautiful wedding. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!
