April and Todd's Wedding at Larsmont Cottages

Wedding at Larsmont Cottages | Mad Chicken Studio | Duluth Wedding Photographer

What happens when the NorthShore Inline Marathon, the Duluth Hot Air Balloon Festival, and the Chester Bowl Fall Fest happen on the same day?  Todd and April’s wedding, of course. Things got a tad stressful when it took about 45 minutes to get from Lake Avenue in Duluth to Scenic 61 {Duluth folks know what I’m talking about!}.  But you know what?  Minus that, things could not have been more perfect the rest of the day.

First, let’s be honest, this is Minnesota, so I’m just going to get this topic out of the way.  The weather.  It was gorgeous!  The perfect warm fall day on the lake with the sun showing all day.  There was some wind, but it made for some really great photos later on :).

April was very detail oriented, in the best way possible.  Her invitations that she chose were some of the most amazing that I have ever seen.  Everything that she put together for the wedding, complimented each other in the most perfect way.  From the flowers, to the cake, to her dress… oh my word, her dress… it was all just stunning.

Todd and April kept their wedding to their closest friends and family.  With about fifty people in attendance, they truly celebrated their family becoming whole that day.  After everyone enjoyed dinner, in the impeccably decorated dining area at Larsmont, everyone ended the evening, not with a dance, but sitting around the campfire and bonding even more.
