Mike + Rachel Palermo
July 19, 2014 / Duluth, MN

Mike and Rachel may just be the sweetest and most genuine couple you will meet. From our planning meetings to the day of, these two were so concerned with making their wedding amazing for everyone around them. We cried happy tears when Rachel’s grandparents were able to travel for their special day, and Grandpa was speechless over his granddaughters beauty. She really was breathtaking – that dress was absolute perfection! And Mike most definitely agreed, sneaking as many kisses and sweet glances her way as he could.

The entire celebration was so full of love and happiness – and we couldn’t have asked for a better Duluth day! Just the right amount of sunshine, warmth and cool breeze to help make all of their out of town guests fall in love with our hillside city. I felt completely at home amongst Mike and Rachel’s guests and had so much fun getting to know their family and friends.

Mike made everyone’s hearts drop to the floor when he ended his speech by looking at Rachel so honestly and saying “I am so lucky I found you”. It couldn’t have been said more beautifully and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room.

Here’s to Mike and Rachel, an amazing couple with such huge hearts – may they have many years of wedded bliss and fantastic memories ahead! Thank You for including me in your gorgeous day and welcoming me in as if I was an old friend. You truly are a one of a kind couple. So much love, AJC
