K + S: A FALL LAKE SUPERIOR WEDDING

A fall Lake Superior wedding at Two Harbors’s Larsmont Cottage can be a dream year round if potential weather phenomenon are ignored. What rain? What wind off the lake? What soggy ground? Mother Nature can wreak havoc come fall along her greatest lake, and sometimes she succeeds (if you don’t believe that, visit in February). […]

A + M: A LAKESIDE BACKYARD WEDDING

Arynn and Mitchell’s lakeside backyard wedding was all things magical, I pinky promise. A lot is misunderstood about engineers. Despite their notorious right brain tendencies, they have hearts that match that tenacity. Their aptitude for mathematical calculations is only matched by their emotional IQ to know when some is right, it is right, and when […]

YES IN MY BACKYARD (WEDDING): A LOOK AT HOME VENUES

Backyard weddings. We see them in movies (hello, “Father of the Bride”), but can they really be for us? I am from Grand Rapids, Minnesota, so I have had “The Wizard of Oz” in my face for pretty much my entire life (and that’s not as much of a complaint as it is just a […]

R + J: A NORTHWOODS CABIN CELEBRATION

When Glenn start building his cabin in 1994, all he wanted was a little paradise for his family–just a little slice of heaven on the shores of Little Jessie Lake. A place for him, his wife, Marilyn, and their lovely daughters to spend the summer as a family. As it goes in northern Minnesota, the time […]

GUNFLINT LODGE + OUTFITTERS

    Winding and weaving north of north, the Gunflint Trail is 57-miles that wanders through what can truly be known as God’s Country. What was, at one time, a simple foot trail for voyageurs is now a paved scenic byway that takes one from Grand Marais, Minnesota, up to Saganaga Lake near the Minnesota-Ontario […]

VISTA FLEET

I do not know of a single person who does not instantly fall in love with Lake Superior. Seriously. It is so moving, it is a top destination for weddings year round–even in the winter (which a true testament to how much we love this lake). Yes, many couples say “I do” next to the […]

A +D: A GUNFLINT LODGE ELOPEMENT

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 […]

A + J: LOVE, ENGINEERED I WEDDING

Small towns are comfortable, especially if you are lucky enough to call one home. Like a sweater or an oversized sweatshirt, they are roomy, warm, and welcoming. This is how Ann felt about her little city of Littlefork, Minnesota. As her dad, Darrell, revealed to a packed house at the Board Room in Superior, Ann […]

R + C: LOVE INTO THE WOODS I WEDDING

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 […]

CIARA + PHIL: A NORTHERN MN LAKESIDE BEACH CEREMONY

Bemidji, Minnesota, is home to two of the tallest characters in American folklore, Paul Bunyan and Bunyan and his trusty sidekick, Babe the Blue Ox. (Brainerd, Minnesota, might challenge that claim). Bemidji is also the origin of another great tale, an amazing larger-than-life love story, which began in Oak Hall on the Bemidji State University […]

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.
