Like most good things, it all started on Duluth’s Superior Street.
It was just a typical night at Dubh Linn’s. By chance, they were both there, with their friends. They met, chatted, and that was that. It was to be nothing more than just come talk about tattoos over beer. But that one meeting was followed by a second serendipitous night where again their paths crossed. That, of course, meant something.
That something is what brought these two and their friends and family to RailRiver Folk School the last Saturday on September for a fall wedding in Bemidji.
Nicki is a sweet and sassy lass, and Tyler is the boy next door. They will both give anyone the shirt off their back, but is also not afraid to give anyone a piece of their mind (when it’s warranted, of course). They are a beautiful balance, and with how jovial their families already are with one another, it’s clear they both fit right in.
That jesting attitude was evident in all parts of the day (the groomsmen were gifted a megaphone, the bridesmaids held Leinikugels Summer Shandy during portraits, there was an extra special Cameo gifted to the couple), but nothing compared to the ceremony prepared and officiated by Tyler’s step-father, Shawn. What started as an assumed excuse to drink wine during the ceremony turned into a beautiful metaphor about love: Two wine glasses without wine cannot fulfill their purpose, neither can hearts do their job without love.
The toasts from the dearest friends, Rachel and Jacob, continued the sentimental joking (Rachel was so happy for her friends…not just because of her love story but because she has maybe become an adult; Jacob was just as happy for the marriage, but was concerned about what this meant for his and Tyler’s bromance). It was a light-hearted and meaningful night, perfect for this couple.
Congratulations again, Mr. + Mrs. Anderson!
