Amber + Dakota | Duluth, MN


Amber and Dakota’s wedding day was absolutely perfect. The best words I can find  to describe it would be intimate, simple, and filled with the people they loved the most. Their wedding details completely reflected that as well . Dakota’s brother was their officiant, and their reception was held at a rustic bar in Cloquet that was just exploding with character. It was nothing short of them. Knowing Amber since Elementary school, it just felt right to be the one to photograph her wedding! I am so happy we could connect and I could be by her side on one of the most important day of her life.  Amber and Dakota met when Dakota was with a mutual friend they both didn't know they knew. Dakota peeked at their friend Tim's phone and saw a snap of Amber's face and that was it. Love at first snap. Dakota persisted that Tim give him her Snapchat name. They have been talking every since! After they were ready to make things real, Dakota proposed to Amber In Virginia when she flew down to see him get reenlisted. Came as a total surprise for Amber. Dakota got on one knee, looked her in the eyes, and said, "I love you so much. Will you marry me?" Short, sweet and simple. Amber said If he did anything longer she probably would have fainted. So I'm happy he kept it short! Now that these two are wed they are headed to Norfolk, VA to start the next phase in their life, together and i'm so happy for them.
