Romantic Detroit Lakes Wedding

Both Jane Anderson and Peter Knudsvig grew up loving Detroit Lakes. Jane’s parents met and married there, and Peter’s parents built a lake house there and visit every summer. So it was easy for the couple to choose the small northern Minnesota lake town as the setting for their late summer wedding. “The lake is our favorite place in the world and it’s where we fell in love,” says Jane. The couple used Peter’s dad’s saying “Welcome to the lake!” as their wedding theme, and created an event where friends and family could relax and experience the joys of lake.

They wed at Peter’s family cabin before venturing to Detroit Country Club for cocktails, dinner and dancing under a flower- and chandelier-adorned tent. At the end of the night, the couple surprised still-dancing guests with Hotel Shoreham pizza. “No visit to the lake would be complete without eating our favorite pizza!” says Jane.
