The day was predicted to be rainy and in the 60's. The ceremony was scheduled for 5 p.m. and so was the rain.
We were were thrilled that the weather cooperated enough to allow us the outdoor wedding they were hoping for!
It was a very emotional ceremony, especially for Amanda and Nolan, but also for the mother of the bride. Bishop Stevenson did a beautiful job officiating, and the music, poetry and vows were all perfect. It felt like a wedding in an outdoor cathedral!
Afterwards, their dance teacher gave some really fun lessons on swing, rumba and cha cha cha. We also loved Helme playing the accordion while we polka'd and did the chicken dance!

Amanda's and Nolan's friend Nikolai is playing a trumpet fanfare for their wedding. The setting at the top of the hill overlooking Duluth is spectacular, but it was so foggy out you couldn't see Lake Superior behind him.
Representing Whistling Prairie, Brittany, John and Crystal sang a great song for the bride and groom, called All I want is You. It was a nice way to wind up a great (but very cold) day!
