walking around Lakes and Legends wedding

When you have a best friend, you always secretly hope that your two kids will fall in love and get married right? Well, many years ago Leanna and Erin’s dads were those two guys. Alas, no great love story is complete without the old “going our separate ways and re-connecting 15 years later” bit (amiright?!?) 

Luckily, Erin and Leanna fell into each other’s lives again and after each of them proposed in her own way, they went ahead and sealed the deal at this Lakes and Legends wedding across from Loring Park in Minneapolis. (Check out their summer adventure session here)

Friends, family, and dog (Wendell) stood by and watched as these two kiddos got to commit themselves to each other.  (How to include your doggo in your wedding)

Now, weddings are always a bit stressful as anyone who’s planned a wedding can vouch for, but right before they walked down the aisle when the emotions and stress are at a high point, I assured Erin “You’re almost there!” She jokingly asked, “Why does anyone do these wedding things anyways?” Then, we all got to revel in Leanna’s vows to Erin and hear all about her love and promises to her. Everyone, even Wendell started to cry. I replied to Erin afterward, “That’s why people do the wedding thing.” Also, you get to dance, so there’s that.

The rest of the wedding was fun and laid back, the ambiance of craft beer and warm string lights were strewn about, courtesy of Lakes and Legends Brewing venue. Highlights included dancing/strutting back down the aisle, mini cupcakes, epic sunset and playtime at Loring park, and more Wendel snuggles.
