Salann and Mike’s love story started way back in middle middle school but it didn’t get serious until they reconnected years later. (Does anyone else feel like this is the beginning of a Nicholas Sparks movie?) Their relationship started as best friends but after many twists, turns and changes, it evolved into a love that will stand the test of time.
From the moment I first talked to Salann, I could hear the giddy, excitement in her voice and how excited she was to get married. She had their wedding planned for June 2021 until a little thing called a pandemic hit and suddenly plans changed. Instead of spending the next year worrying about wedding plans and if the pandemic would have a greater affect on it, they decided to tie the knot now. Salann flew up to the Northland from Florida and planned her wedding within a month!
Their wedding day was simple, beautiful and most importantly, it was shared with their loved ones. The ceremony was outdoors along the Lake Superior shoreline close to Duluth. The reception took place under a big white tent, celebrating with family and dancing late into the night.
