Ross and Kristina’s historic Duluth summer wedding day included all the things a Zenith City ceremony would promise. There were breweries, old buildings, and the lake.

Oh, the lake. 

Many elements bring people to Duluth, but not as much of a draw as Lake Superior. For many, all it takes on a tour of the University of Minnesota Duluth is to see the blue waters of that great lake off in the distance to say “This is where I am going.” For Ross, while there may have been a variety of factors that brought him to Duluth (UMD being one of them), it was a soft-spoken hometown girl that kept him interested in sticking around longer than four years of undergraduate study..

It was that exact girl who would make a husband out of him as they made their home in the city on the hill. It is here they where they make time together by visiting local breweries and raise a furbaby, Winston. Naturally, then, Lake Superior was the beautiful backdrop Ross chose when proposed to Kristina. Way up at the iconic Enger Tower is where he got down onto one knee to ask his love of nearly ten years to say yes to a forever (she did). 

Their forever began at Clyde Iron Works, a refurbished manufacturing plant and foundry that has become a staple in West End for dining and eventsOn the balcony that at one time overlooked the manufacturing of cranes and hoists, Ross and Kristina’s closest friends and family watched as they two promised each other forever. Down below on the first floor where heavy equipment was created for industry, the couple and their 250 guests would enjoy a gourmet sit-down dinner and cupcakes for dessert and watch the new Mr. and Mrs. dance for the first time as husband and wife.

Cheers to you, Kristina + Ross! Best of luck to you!!

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.
