Bde Maka Ska | Fall Engagement

There is something incredibly special about revisiting the place of your first date and reminiscing as you explore the location where your love story began.  We remember our first date as if it were yesterday!  As college sweethearts, we love meeting couples who also met in school.  Khine and Michael met through friends at the University of Minnesota.  Their first date was at Bde Maka Ska, so naturally, it was the perfect place for their engagement session!

These two are such an incredible couple and the weather for their session could not have been more beautiful.  The temps have cooled down here in Minnesota, and the fall colors are at their finest.  Khine and Michael looked amazing and we loved the way that Khine incorporated the fall colors with her dress.  We explored among the sailboats as the sun began to set and the reflection in the water was simply gorgeous.  We strolled down the beachside and along the docks as we chatted about how they had watched the sunset over the water on their first date.  We also talked about their engagement story and wedding plans. Michael actually surprised Khine by designing her beautiful ring!  He proposed in Italy and the views along the water and of Italy’s breathtaking scenery sounded like something out of a dream!

Khine and Michael have incorporated a bit of Italy into their wedding day as well.  They will host their big day at the amazing Villa Bellezza! With its gorgeous vineyards, and Italian architecture, it truly allows guests to experience a little piece of Europe right here in the midwest.  Their big day is in great hands with Sarah Trotter of Lasting Impressions, and we know that every detail will be absolutely perfect!  It is such an honor to be a part of their wedding, and we are already counting down the days until June!
