Grand View Lodge | Summer Wedding

It seems like it was just yesterday that we met Danielle and Nick for their summer engagement session in downtown Stillwater.  We had so much fun together, and couldn’t wait to celebrate with them on their big day!  Their wedding took place at the Grand View Lodge Spa and Golf Resort in Nisswa, and was styled and coordinated by the talented Kate Kuepers of Bloom Designs.  The morning began with the ladies and Captivating Beauty on hair and Make Me Blush on makeup.  Danielle looked gorgeous in her a&be wedding dress and the bridesmaids in their dresses from Bella Bridesmaids.  We absolutely loved their flower crowns!  

The men prepared for the day in their suits from Generation Tux, and Nick couldn’t wait to see his beautiful bride.  He walked down to the very same dock that he had proposed to Danielle on, and when he saw her, the tears began to flow.  We began portraits, and their adorable puppy even joined us for a few!  We headed to the Chapel for wedding party and family portraits and had the best time taking photos.  These two have such fun friends and families, and it was a joy to be a part of their celebration!  

The ceremony took place just down the steps from the Main Lodge, and afterwards, guests gathered in the Gull Lake Center for dinner, speeches, and cake by the Knotty Pine Bakery.  Following dinner, we walked down to the docks for a few breathtaking golden hour photos.  These two are such a beautiful couple, and they have the sweetest relationship together!  We ended the evening with an epic dance party and a gorgeous sparkler exit!  Danielle and Nick, your wedding was amazing! We hope that your honeymoon in Honolulu was absolutely incredible, and we wish you all the very best in the many years to come!
