These two had their wedding at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth, MN! These two met at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Between working together as resident advisors in the dorms and having biology classes together, they ended up spending a lot of time studying, planning programs for their residents, and playing Mario Kart. They became good friends and started dating in December of 2013.

Fast forward to one Sunday morning after church (also the day after Valentine’s Day), Joe and Taylor decided to go to Joe’s house and make breakfast. On the way there, Joe realized he was out of eggs and syrup. He dropped Taylor off at his house so she could work on homework while Joe went to the store. Joe was taking a suspiciously long time to return and when he did, he said he had to go to three different stores for eggs (which Taylor later discovered he was actually trying to find roses). They made pancakes and then planned on spending the rest of the day working on a paper for a class they shared. Joe suggested that they take a break from writing their papers and go for a drive with Dakota, Joe’s dog. They went to Hawk’s Ridge, a favorite spot where they enjoy watching the sunset or sunrise. Joe pulled out a rose that was tucked between his seat and the car door. He gave Taylor the rose and shared one of his favorite memories of the two of them at Hawk’s Ridge. They continued to drive and made a few more stops. At each stop, Joe shared a memory of them and gave her a rose. Taylor thought it was a belated Valentine’s Day surprise and didn’t suspect anything when they arrived at the last stop. Since they had Dakota with, Joe suggested that they go out of the car. They were at Lake Superior. While Taylor was looking out at the lake, Joe came up from behind and tapped her arm. As Taylor recalls: “When I turned around, he was on one knee with a rose in one hand and a ring box in the other. He told me this spot would hold his new favorite memory of us and asked me to marry him.”

When planning the wedding, Taylor and Joe knew they wanted to get married in Duluth since that’s where they met and that’s where their memories are. When they toured Clyde Iron Works, they loved that character and history of the venue. A unique part of their day is that instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple decided to have donuts instead! As Taylor puts it, “We just really like donuts!” For their wedding, they wanted to capture some of Duluth’s beauty by making their centerpieces out of Lake Superior’s driftwood and Joe collected wood to build an arbor for the ceremony. Another special detail about the day is that Joe used a handkerchief that was passed down from his grandfather to his dad, and now from his dad to him. These two cannot wait to have all of their loved ones in the same place. Taylor adds: “We hope our day can be an example of what it looks like to have a Christ-centered relationship. We also really wanted to create an event to bring our friends and family together in one place to enjoy a joyous occasion.”
