From the minute we met Danielle and Alan, we couldn’t wait for to capture their Giants Ridge wedding. They are such awesome people and we knew we’d be in for a real treat!
The Bride and Groom
We met these two over ice cream (our favorite meeting option!) and instantly hit it off! They were both so sweet and we knew that their day was going to be absolutely amazing!
The Venue – Giants Ridge | Biwabik, MN
When these two started talking about the Giants Ridge wedding we were instantly looking forward to having the opportunity to shoot there. A ski resort in the winter turns into a gorgeous setting for a wedding in the summer. With such a large property, you really get the best locations for each event, and being able to shoot this Giant’s Ridge wedding really was a dream! The prep takes place in their lodge on site, the ceremony was near the golf course looking over a huge mining area that had turned into a lake, and the reception was set up against the ski hills in a beautiful building!
The Wedding – Giants Ridge Wedding
The beginning of this Giants Ridge wedding took place at the lodge, where Danielle and her girls had their hair and makeup done, and Alan and his guys spent the morning laughing and getting ready! A little bit later, Danielle slipped into her dress while Alan put on his tux and they both left for the quarry for their first look! This was SUCH an amazing backdrop not only for the ceremony but also the first look. The lake and trees were perfect and were a gorgeous setting for the special moment when Alan turned around to see Danielle for the first time that day!
From there we had lots of picture time with friends, family, and of course the bride and groom, and then everyone gathered overlooking the quarry to watch these two say their vows and officially become husband and wife! From there Danielle and Alan hopped into their AMAZING vintage car and rode towards the reception venue! We had a bit of time to take just these two out to the 17th green for some epic shots, including an amazing drone shot! Then it was back to the reception area to hear some awesome toasts and celebrate the night away!
We are so grateful not only to have captured this amazing Giants Ridge wedding, but also to have had the opportunity to have met these two awesome people! Congratulations Danielle and Alan!
