Andrew & Megan travelled from Minnesota to say I do in the mountains with their families and a few close friends to witness the moment they became Mr & Mrs. Emerald Lake was beyond stunning for their day. I was thrilled that they got to have their ceremony outside with the sounds of loons softly heard in the background. We saw a beautiful black bear on the way to their wedding which was a great start to our day and surely a sign of a dream wedding day. I loved how excited Andrew & Megan were to be at Emerald Lake. They really took it all in. A butterfly even stopped to land on Andrew's hand just like in a Disney movie.

The bridemaids making the bride a can of tomato soup on their campstove.

The youngest guest looking very dapper.

These two canoe experts were crazy in sync. It was beautiful to watch!

This beautiful butterfly was only interested in hanging out with the newlyweds.
