We knew we wanted to get married somewhere that was important to us.  After looking at a dozens possible venues we decided on Ojiketa Park in Chisago, MN.  We love being on the lake in the summer so the location was perfect!  We will be getting married on Green Lake, and the best part was the cheapest venue!


This will be our ceremony location

We had an outdoor doorway into our ceremony

My husband built our altar out of 100 yr old barnwood.  So beautiful!

I can still feel the sunshine on my face as the doors opened and my two favorite men walked me down the aisle to my future husband.


This is where the reception will take place.

We are going for the vintage / rustic look.  This is my inspiration for the reception
