Bride and groom Anna and Pat have been friends since college. Friendship soon turned to love but not long after they started dating, different career paths took Anna and Pat to distant states. Through the trials of long-distance, their love grew stronger. They knew they wanted to get hitched once they were able to be together in the same city. Anna’s family from Albert Lea, Minnesota and Pat’s family from Helena, Montana joined forces to celebrate in the city where it all started - Duluth, Minnesota. Wedding guests boarded a train at The Depot in downtown Duluth and arrived in the middle of a forest in Lester Park to listen to beautiful handwritten vows in a stunningly green setting. On the way back to The Depot, we all enjoyed cold beers and live music. A fancy AF taco bar and some of the best speeches I’ve ever heard were bookended with portraits before cutting loose on the dance floor. Anna and Pat - you rule.
