St. Paul's Catholic Church in Sauk Center has a colorful and elaborately-carved German alter piece. What a dramatic backdrop for the moment Lauren and Nick first saw each other! They decided to pick up on this theme and incorporate some of German traditions into their wedding day. During the reception, they sawed a log in half to symbolize that they can get through tough problems by working together. This wasn't an easy task because they were laughing so hard that they were tearing up! The tears continued during the speeches as everyone had heartfelt stories to tell!
