When choosing a date, take time to organize your priorities. Some things you just have to have; other things you might like, but don't necessarily need; and some things are a red flag "no"!   Remember that the things you knew you had to have when you were younger might not be your current style, so give yourself time to "play" with different ideas.

Sometimes they walk as couples, triples, or even individuals. Sometimes they are Groomsmaids and sometimes they are Bridesmen. Sometimes they are Flower Grandmas and sometimes they are Gift Guards. Age knows no boundaries.   And every role is an...

It’s June. Which means it’s Summer in Duluth! Which means that people who don’t live in Duluth are trying to get to Duluth to enjoy Duluth as much as Duluthians already know how to do all year round.

We have weddings every weekend of the year, and sometimes during the week! There are many things that we love about weddings during each season! ...
