Northwoods Intimate Lake Wedding || Sara + Jared at Blackduck Lodge

Sara and Jared dated in high school, then followed each other off to college.

And like many young loves, life happened and they decided to go their own separate ways. That is, until over ten years when they rekindled things as friends and then romantically. Pretty soon, they realized that while the timing may have been wrong, the person was still very right.

When it came to planning a wedding, they decided to do a destination weekend away for themselves and about 40 of their favorite people. Jared's brother owns a resort in northern MN (Blackduck Lodge & Resort) and it made for the perfect place. They said "I Do" between the trees in the morning and spent the rest of the weekend lounging around the lake in all it's Minnesotan glory. Their brunch pancake feast was absolutely amazing (shout out to couples who have gluten free options! happy, happy, happy Liv!) and the day was filled with a peace that came from being intentionally slow. The day's motto was "Stress-Free" and it made for a really relaxed celebrate with photos scattered throughout.

I'm so thankful for this amazing couple and their beautiful day filled with their love of breakfast food, nature, and each other! (All the important things in life... am I right?!)
