August 29, 2018

In 2012, Robekkah was looking for a strictly platonic Scrabble partner. That was it. Maybe someone with whom to have the occasional picnic. Who she found was Christian, who would do.
Nearly six years to the day, the gal from the west coast of Canada found herself with that boy from Alaska that she met Berlin (Germany) on the shores of Kabekona Lake in Laporte, Minnesota, where they became Scrabble partners for life.
Robekkah and Christian are the kind of people we could call champagne–they are bubbly and effervescent and just a joy to be around. As sweet as they are, they are also sentimental, which was evident through their wedding; there was not one aspect that did not have even the tiniest thread of tradition woven into it.
Robekkah’s dress and veil were beautifully handmade by the bride and her mother and included vintage lace from previous familial wedding gowns; also made my Mom were the bowties, which were created from the same purple fabric as the dress’s bodice.
The flowers–the plum and lavender calla lilies–were arrangements created with love by Robekkah’s uncle, who stopped at nothing to bring his niece’s vision into reality. His sister aided with the cake decorating, turning a vintage cake topper from her own wedding nearly 40 years ago into something new and special for these newlyweds.
The true icing on the wedding cake, however, was their officiant: Christian’s grandfather, who officially married this couple in a ceremony full of love, devotions, and family. In the sanctuary of Trinity Lutheran Church, friends and family literally came from all across the globe to see these two start their lives together, no doubt making their own traditions that have been inspired by the ones and all their love before.
Best of luck to you, Robekkah + Christian!

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT KAYLA

At home on the road. Forever-focused on authenticity and the thrilling art of creation; always found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

After fourteen years as a high school educator, I stepped back through a door I thought was closed. Journalism came back into my life. Armed with a Masters of Arts in Communication, I was again challenged and prepared to tell the stories that would become history, but with a twist: It is now your legacy of love that I document. The tension I seek is that from every tear, smile, laugh, and moment of love on your wedding day.
