This Clyde Iron Works Wedding was the perfect blend of traditional and not so much traditional with a hint of dark and moody.
While getting ready with Sarah and her lady of honor, I was informed that these two gals had long envisioned the perfect man back in their youth. And after long discussion and forethought, they both ended up marrying two nerdy guys named Jon. So much for planning.
Sarah met Jonny via a classic setup by their best friends. While Sarah was extremely skeptical, some how she took a chance and it worked out splendidly!
While inside the rustic Clyde Iron Works building, Sarah debuted her black and white wedding gown and ass kicking boots. Her lips were the perfect moody purple and inlieu of flowers, she held a parcel of books hollowed out. Or as I since have referred to it as a book-quet.
During their first look, Sarah and Jonny decided to read their vows to each other instead of during the ceremony. I absolutely love this idea and would recommend it to anyone who wants the feel of a small ceremony outside of their larger one.
While Jonny is quiet and shy, Sarah is a tornado of thought and energy and together they really and truly compliment each other. Their styles are videogamer meets book nerd. Checkout their perfectly fitted adventure-engagement session here.
The wedding day was filled with their playful banter and laughs and when the ceremony was time, the groom’s father himself officiated.
Sarah and Jonny wanted to make the day about themselves and their love, so after the ceremony we went on the hunt for a sunset in Duluth.
Thankfully, they trusted us to drag them out into the cold, through a park, down onto the lake superior shore where we were all rewarded with my own personal top 10 sunset.
I’m so glad they found each other and despite the many setbacks of planning their wedding, had a wonderful celebration. Cheers to them both!
