Gooseberry Falls Wedding of Ben and Amanda
In honor of their third wedding anniversary, we’re reposting our blog entry from the beautiful Gooseberry Falls destination wedding of Ben and Amanda. Happy third anniversary you guys!
These two “newlyweds” are now parents to a beautiful baby girl, Katerina Rose. I have recently had the pleasure of photographing for her cute Easter Portraits!
Here we go from June 2011:
The second of our two destination weddings this past weekend, Ben and Amanda were married Sunday at Gooseberry Falls State Park. What a unique location for a wedding!
Joannie and I met up with Ben and Amanda at Cove Point Lodge (one of our favorite places to stay in all of Minnesota). They all got ready there with their wedding party and it’s also where they had their first look. Very cool. Then it was on to Gooseberry Falls State Park.

The North Shore of Lake Superior wasn’t the place to be for nice weather that weekend, it was cold, windy and rainy, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time with everyone! We adapted. Instead of an outdoor ceremony, we moved inside the Lady Slipper Lodge complete with a “Unity” fire in the fireplace! Very neat wedding idea.
After the ceremony, the reception was held inside at the nearby Lakeside Picnic Shelter. Great food, an awesome cake (made by mom), a nice warm fire and some really “cool” windy wedding portraits by Lake Superior.
We finished the day with the wedding party photos at Gooseberry Falls!
Our wedding highlight video shows that you can still have a beautiful ceremony, nice reception, have lots of fun, and take some great photographs despite Mother Nature’s intervention!
Joannie and I thank you for asking us to share your wedding day with you. You guys are tons of fun and your new baby girl is just adorable. Joannie & I thank you for a really great day up on Lake Superior three years ago today!
