Greysalon Wedding Photography | Meghan and Kyle

Uffda! I’m a bit behind on the blogging and social media scene at the moment, summer is always such a whirlwind of weddings, camping, and trying to squeeze in as much fun in three months as possible! Well, I just dropped the kiddo off at school this morning (tears!) and now have some much needed time to catch up on all of those non-deadline type things that tend to get placed on the backburner during the summer.

We’ll start with Meghan and Kyle’s gorgeous wedding day in Duluth, MN! Ari and I will take any chance we can get to drive north, so when Meghan and Kyle inquired about their wedding day at Greysolon Ballroom in Duluth, MN; we may have done a happy dance or two at the prospect of a Northshore wedding! And this Northshore wedding did not disappoint! It was the perfect weekend filled with both photographing these two, visiting Ari’s friends and family, and sitting on the rock beach in Canal Park and staring out at Lake Superior. Meghan and Kyle were a blast to work with, here’s a peek at some of my favorite photos from Meghan and Kyle’s amazing wedding day up north!

Family Weekend in Duluth, Minnesota

After stuffing ourselves silly on Thanksgiving, we took advantage of the long weekend and the warm weather and headed north to the Duluth Area with my family. We stayed in a camper cabin in Jay Cooke State Park. Hani enjoyed that the cabins were each named after a different type of rock found in the area #novanerd! We love camper cabins at this time of year, they are super cozy and affordable. All you have to bring is bedding and food!

The weekend was perfect! We played by the river in Jay Cooke, hiked for a bit, ate dinner in Duluth with Ari's parents and then visited Bentelyville.
