Haley and Nathan are a remarkable couple. Aside from being super talented, they also have really big hearts! Nathan is a project engineer for a boat surfacing company here in Central MN and Haley proudly serves her country in the United States Air Force. They’ve been through so much together, so having a New Year’s Eve wedding was the perfect celebration for these two. They have a lot to celebrate!
I absolutely love Haley and Nathan’s love story. Though they both had mutual friends in college at St. Ben’s and St. John’s, they never knew of each other until one of the mutual friends introduced these Haley and Nathan at Cowboy Jacks in Minneapolis. Nathan finally proposed while a they were on a long-weekend fall hiking trip on the north shore with some friends from school. As they were posing for a photo with their adorable Golden Retriever, Lucy, he popped the question. And as if it couldn’t get any better, their friends caught the whole thing on video for them!
The wedding ceremony took place at Seven Dolors Catholic Church in Albany and the reception at the the new RReV’s in St. Anna. Tables were full of the most beautiful flowers, and candles and the décor were spot on. The couple, with their family and friends shared heart-felt toasts, and danced into the night with their amazing DJ. I was so honored to be part of this New Year’s Eve wedding with Haley and Nathan. It was a wedding day I will never forget!
You always hear people say “soak it in as much as you can because your wedding day will fly by” and holy moly, they were right! From relaxing in the morning drinking mimosas with my bridesmaids to scrambling to find our wedding bands before the ceremony, the whole day was a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I remember looking over at Nathan during our reception and just being so blissfully happy that we were finally married and everyone was there to celebrate with us. There’s no greater feeling than knowing that hundreds of people are willing to brave the sub zero temperatures to support our marriage. It really was the best New Years Eve ever.”
