Elizabeth and Arnold – 9/3/16- Stillwater, Minnesota
Elizabeth and Arnold met many years ago at Normandale College. Arnold was new to the school and pretty new to the country as well- his family and him came from Kenya, Africa. Elizabeth worked in student center, and Arnold came in one day because he had lost his phone. The two started talking, and eventually started dating. They moved to Milwaukee about a year ago, and although they love their new home, they wanted to have their wedding in between where they live now and where they met, which worked out to be the beautiful Stillwater, Minnesota. This city is stunning, it lies right on the rivers edge and boarders Minnesota and Wisconsin, and they were married on the Showboat on the St. Croix River.
Their ceremony was extremely special because they tied all three of their cultures in. They stood under a tapestry held by four of their loved ones for the African traditions, readings were done from both Christianity and Judaism, and the two ended the ceremony by dancing down the isle which was so fun and unique!
The party continued on the second level of the boat with toasts and dinner. Elizabeth’s stepfather started the party off with a very sweet toast to the future of the happy couple. Later, Arnold’s father retold their love story and paid homage to all those in his family that had made the long trip to Minnesota. After dinner, the happy couple cut a small cake, then shared delicious cupcakes with all their guests. As the boat made its way back to shore, the guests gathered on the dance floor to cut loose, and the night ended with everyone smiling at the front of the boat with the bride and groom.
It was so amazing to see their roots brought into their wedding day! Everyone was brought together for their love because celebrating something this amazing welcomes all! Congratulations Elizabeth and Arnold! I am so happy for you both!
