Alexandrite is not like any other stone. Thanks to a phenomenon called metamerism, the gem changes its appearance based on the light. At times it will seem green; other times the jewel will appear purple. Sometimes there is even a bluish hue. Alexandrite is uniquely beautiful and unexpected. Unlike any other couple is Emma and […]

Lizzy tells the story of how her and Caleb met in the best way possible. “You ever see “New Girl?” That’s us.” If you are unfamiliar with the iconic and delightful Fox Show that ran from 2011 until 2018, it goes a little something like this: The female lead moves into an apartment with three […]

Exactly to years prior on August 11, 2018, Jessica and Som were strolling along Chicago’s Navy Pier. The Windy City is a frequent vacation destination for these two, but this year it would be a little different. It was on that trip, along that shoreline, that they became engaged. On August 11, 2020, Lake Michigan […]

For too long, elopements have been the joke of the wedding industry. They have been confused with shotgun weddings. The OG Dad joke is “I’ll give you them money if you’d just elope!” In the words of Rodney Dangerfield, elopements just can’t get no respect. With that said, there is a lot of allure for […]

When it comes to choosing at date, some couples like to play it safe. Stay away from major holidays, pick a time where they weather is a little more constant, things like that. Other couples, they like to gamble. They take a risk and pick a date and location based on opportunity rather than probability. […]

When one goes into education, there are so many variables that will come into play. Where will my first district be? What will I be teaching first? How many preps will I have? But sometimes, that randomness, can lead to something bigger in life. This randomness is what Iowa raised and trained Elsbeth north of […]

Nearly forty miles northwest of Grand Marais–a town that is quite northern in its own right–there is a lovely properly named Gunflint Lodge. It is located near the end of Minnesota’s iconic Gunflint Trail, a road which had simple beginnings as a footpath to connect the outer lakes to Lake Superior and now serves as […]

Fall in northern Minnesota is a finicky thing. Too many variables to list contribute to the autumnal rainbow that we love even more than Pumpkin Spice. Unfortunately, this year fall has been a bit aloof, with partial changes in the north (and very little changes in the metro and south, thanks to a heatwave followed […]

Sometimes the best plan is no plan at all. No matter how solid of a Plan A or Plan B, sometimes you just need Plan C (how it goes). They let everything go, and just let each piece of their day be unknown, unexpected, and more than welcomed. This was the thought behind Faith and […]
