Summertime in the North Shore is absolutely magical, and Lutsen Resort on Lake Superior couldn’t have been a more perfect setting to host Kim and Ryan’s big day! Kim looked stunning with her hair and make up by Hair by Kelsey Kent and her Rosa Clara dress from Bucci’s Bridal. All of her shoes for the day, along with her gorgeous ring, were just a few of our favorite details from this beautiful wedding. Dani Kay Designs’ invitation suite and the florals by Duluth Flower Farm. were incredible, and the colors fit the theme of the day perfectly!
We began the morning with a sweet tear-filled first look with Kim’s father just before she walked out to meet Ryan on the cliffs of Lake Superior. Ryan looked fantastic with his stars and stripes details and suit from Knight’s Menswear. We had a blast exploring the shoreline and forest for a few portraits before meeting up with the wedding party. The ladies looked amazing in their elegant sequin gowns form Lulus and we had the best time chatting and laughing together!
The ceremony was beautiful, and was followed by a few family and wedding party photos by the gorgeous floral arch and along the shoreline. The reception began, and guests enjoyed dinner, speeches, and World’s Best Donuts for dessert! Euphoric Entertainment hosted the dance party, and Glasser Images did an amazing job of capturing all of the fun on video! We ended the evening with the most breathtaking golden hour photos by the water. We couldn’t help but wonder if the setting reminded Kim and Ryan of Mirror Lake Loop Trail in Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon – where they had gotten engaged! We are so incredibly happy for these two, and wish them nothing but the very best in their Happily Ever After!
