SUMMIT CHALET WEDDING, NORTH SHORE MN WEDDING
Nicole and David coined their wedding for being as North Shore and Minnesotan as possible – and boy did they deliver. From the stunning mountaintop and lake views of Summit Chalet down to the rock name cards and dessert toppings, everything about this day was exactly Minnesotan.
But not only that – it was exactly them. The tears of laughter and joy and the amazing feeling of finally reaching this moment were coming from every direction – and even details that referenced David’s late father were to be found everywhere. This story was more than just details and beautiful dresses and scenery – it was real. It was a love of Dairy Queen ice cream and hitting the dance floor and family members officiating ceremonies and the whole room on the edge of their seats during speeches. There were elements at play that weren’t just them, but their whole families. Their whole big love story was wrapped up in every person in the room.
And a freaking epic sunset too.
