Nicole is a long time friend of mine from College and so I had the great pleasure of being a bridesmaid at her wedding back in August. I love the story of how they met: She and Johan are both in the medical profession but happened to meet a few years ago when Nicole was accidentally invited to participate in a volleyball game. She didn’t know the group but decided to check it out and go play (that’s Nicole, always up for a good time). Luckily Johan didn’t know many of the participants anyway, and was apparently there to meet the ladies. His heart skipped a beat when he met Nicole. Just goes to show how you never know when you’re going to meet your true love.
Being a bridesmaid certainly didn’t stop me from snapping as many photos as I could before and after the big day! I was there in Duluth the week of the wedding, helping out and celebrating with everyone. We had a blast!! Below you will see photos from the girls night out, a bridal shower, the grooms dinner, pre wedding prepping, and post wedding celebrations (which included a jump into the extremely chilly Lake Superior). One of my favorite moments during the week was the groom’s dinner. Not only was it so incredibly cool because it took place at a barn filled with antiques and had an absolutely scrumptious meal that words can not describe, but because we also had amazing light with amazingly beautiful happy models. So get ready and check out some fun pics from a really, really fun week!
