first dance Greysolon Ballroom Wedding

Cheerful demeanor wrapped in a blanket of elegance is how I would characterize Marissa and Kyle at their Greysolon Ballroom wedding in Duluth, Minnesota. 

Obviously a venue built in 1925 with hand-painted ceilings and magnificent chandeliers is going to whisper elegance, but Marissa fits the theme by wearing the hell out of her column white satin dress from The Wedding Shoppe. 

Now everyone knows the best accessory for a classy bride is a fun-loving groom and Kyle was so adorable throughout the whole wedding, I wanted to give his cheek a pinch. 

During the ceremony, he was beaming with happiness and tears (don’t worry, the happy kind) as they literally tied the knot via a cord tying ceremony (check out other cool ceremony ideas we’ve seen)

Wandering around the historic hotel at Greysolon allowed for some serious romantic portraits and editorial style wedding party photos. Although we did fight through some construction, we ventured outside to hit up Carmody Irish Pub after the ceremony and to overlook the classic lift bridge of Duluth as well.

This whole wedding reminded me of the episode of “The Office” where Jim, Pam, and Michael are planning a party and the whole time they keep asking, “yes, but is it classy?”


And the answer to everything about this wedding was yes… even when Lizzo played from the DJ and the real dance moves came out. Cheers to you both, you did the damn thing!
