I have to say that I have some amazing weddings coming up this year!  I am looking forward to each and every wedding that I have coming up!

One of the weddings I am excited most for is Sean and Larysa coming up at the end of May.  They are such an awesome couple, and their wedding is all about blending families.  After their wedding, they are going to be a family with six little girls!  I cannot wait to meet all six of them at the wedding and capture those little moments between all of them.

Anyways, back to the engagement session ;) {I get sidetracked when I'm excited, ok?}.  Since Sean and Larysa were traveling to Duluth for their engagement session, there isn't as much flexibility to work with, but we had two dates that we were planning on.  We were going to be super brave, even though it might be really cold out.

Well, with the two options we had for their session, the first one ended up being -30 degrees out with wind!  We were all like..... No, Thank You.  We rescheduled for Valentine's Day, and can I just tell you that it ended up being PERFECT!  You guys, it was significantly warmer... and it was SNOWING!!!  I smile whenever I think about it. Ok, and we need to talk about her dress!  I literally gasped when she walked around the side of the car... it was like it was made specifically for her!  Plus, she had to hike a mile in it during the session.... can you say flipping ROCKSTAR?!

We finished their session down by the lake, and were quite excited to see that the ice rolled in over night.  Although, and my fellow Duluthians know, it was quite a bit colder down on the shore, so we didn't stay there long ;)

So how about I zip my lip now, and let's get to some photos!
