07-25-15 B&J wedding at Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, MN


Read about this event

Beth and Jake met by chance on a night out in downtown Minneapolis. When they saw each other again at a hockey tournament a few months later they decided to meet for dinner and have been in each other’s lives ever since.
They were on vacation in Mexico when Jake proposed. It was their first night on the beach and Beth was thrilled when he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. The beautiful tanzanite ring that Jake offered her he bought years before while they were at Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. He knew even then that someday Beth would be his wife.

The couple knew right away when and where the ceremony would take place. In memory of their late fathers, July 25th at Glensheen Mansion were the day and venue that would honor their memories best. What a beautiful way to include those who could only attend in spirit.
The couple enjoyed beautiful weather in an idyllic setting near Lake Superior during their special day. They celebrated not only their union but also the love and support they had from all their family and friends.

Glensheen is the only historic mansion worth booking for weddings in Duluth. There are plenty of fantastic places to shoot including the formal gardens, Chester Creek, and great Lake Superior views. The staff is great! They are very accommodating and paid attention to every detail. The only downsides were the Bridal Suite is a little small so larger parties may be a bit cramped and if the ceremony had to be held indoors space is limited. All in all a great venue!
