Kelsey and Brian had the most beautiful wedding at Spirit Mountain in Duluth!
To begin the day, Kelsey got ready in an Airbnb with all of her bridesmaids and her beloved dog by her side. Her dog, Prudence, is such a cutie, and she is Kelsey’s whole world! Which I get because I absolutely adore my dogs! Prudence got to lay on the bed while her mom stepped into her wedding dress. Her participation in the day didn’t end here; wait until you see what else she was involved in! Kelsey had her grandmother’s ring attached to her bouquet. It’s the little details like these that captivate me the most on a wedding day! Once Kelsey was ready for her big day, she walked down the stairs to her bridesmaids so they could see her for the first time in her dress. All of the girls were in awe of how glowing she looked!
As the day moved forward, we traveled to the most beautiful spot to do a first look between Brian and Kelsey. Brian stood there facing the lake in anticipation of how beautiful his soon-to-be wife looked. The moment she touched his shoulder, and he turned around, his smile spread wide. Some of my favorite images are grabbing portraits along the beach while the couple looks out towards Lake Superior.
When we arrived at Spirit Mountain for their ceremony, I was amazed by the view! Their ceremony space has beautiful scenery overlooking Lake Superior and the valley. Prudence made another debut at the ceremony while one of the bridesmaids walked her down the aisle.
As the night went on, it was time to celebrate these two, and they had some of the cutest touches to their reception. Instead of having wedding cake for all of their guests, they had Cosmic Brownies. Those brownies are their favorite desserts, so they thought, why not have that for dessert?! We ended the night with some beautiful sunset portraits.
Kelsey and Brian, it was a pleasure photographing your wedding day, and I wish you two the best! Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding at Spirit Mountain in Duluth!
