Darren and Stephanie’s Summer Spirit Mountain, Duluth Wedding


August 17th, 2019

Background of how they met: 

“Darren and I met at a mutual friends 30th birthday party back in 2009! I was having drinks and dancing having a great time.. I went to the bar to order a drink and there were 2 guys sitting at the corner of the bar. As I waited, we started talking and from there we exchanged numbers and Darren got a hold of me the next day to chat. From there it’s all sweet history.” – Stephanie

How he proposed:

“Darren proposed on Feb. 15th, 2018. It was a typical morning in our household. My son was getting ready for school, I was doing some work on the computer and having coffee. He came up to me and my son was sitting at the table (trying to capture on video, which i was oblivious to). Darren started off with……Wow,  a surprise birthday party last Friday, Valentines Day yesterday, your birthday tomorrow…your pretty spoiled.. I feel like there is something missing though…. Wyatt has always said he would be more comfortable calling me Dad if we were to get married, so maybe we should make that happen… (as I kind of chuckle) Darren got down on one knee, showed me a ring and asked if I would marry him! 

It was so exciting and I NEVER expected it to happen… I mean after 9 years together I didn’t think it was going to happen. Ha!” – Stephanie

What I love about them/fav part of their wedding day:Darren and Stephanie’s wedding was such a beautiful and sunny day full of love and laughter! Darren and Stephanie love having a good time and their wedding did not shy from reflecting that! Stephanie was so organized and on top of everything the whole day. I was so thankful she took all the advice I gave her and trusted me to help make her day smooth and enjoyable! I loved how they both made time to enjoy each other and made time for extra fun together! Since Darren and Stephanie met 10 years ago at Players Sports Bar in Duluth, they wanted to go have a drink to celebrate where it all began! I loved learning about their story and being able to capture their newest beginning. Enjoy these photos and your marriage together!!
