Carrie & Ian’s Frozen Lake Wedding

Today’s wedding was sent in by the incredible Hannah of Stonehouse Photography, who I’m *thrilled* to say serves the Great Lakes region: Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the surrounding area (I’m working to get you non-coastal couples resources!) I’m so excited by today’s wedding, because I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s simple and affordable, yes, but it also speaks to a bride and groom with a spine of steel – the kind of people who are willing to buck tradition to have a wedding most of us could never have even dreamed up.
From Hannah: Carrie and Ian got married on a Tuesday in February on a frozen lake in Tettegouche State Park in Northern Minn, because he was on leave from being a pilot for two weeks. We had to hike 2 miles in to the cabins, but it was gorgeous. They had sandwiches and trail mix and instant coffee with about 20 of their closest friends. She wore a bridesmaid dress, and they all stayed in cute little cabins with woodstoves.
And, as if all this wasn’t cool enough, Carrie just graduated from vet school, and has moved to Hong Kong to live with Ian for a while, until she goes and volunteers in India for a month to spay and neuter dogs and cats. What? Yes. May their gutsy trailblazing wedding day be first day of a truly adventurous life together. Happy Trails, you two, happy trails.Now go check out the powerhouse behind these fantastic photos, Hannah of Stonehouse Photo, because anyone who would sent this wedding in as her favorite and tell you how much she adores this couple, well, that’s someone you want to know.
