Bride and Groom driving boat on Hungry Jack Lake


Fall weddings in northern Minnesota are so very nice. These Hungry Jack Lodge wedding photos are full of love & laughter, and bathed in absolutely beautiful scenery. Jean & Sam are some of the coolest people I’ve had the honor to share the day with. Their love for each other, the scenery, the way they wore their hearts on their sleeves, and their awesome souls, made this a perfect Northwoods wedding day.

Sam is a true jack-of-all-trades designing and hand making some rock solid wedding decor, an awesome topographical nature & wildlife figure seating chart, hatchets, arrows, the wedding band, and even his own suit. Jean also contributed many touches and has the most awesomely genuine smile and energy. They honored their ancestors and the sacred lands with native touches and a sweet Anishinaabe marriage blessing. Along with their friends & families, Jean & Sam made the most of their Gunflint Trail wedding on HungryJack Lake, and I was truly honored to be a part of it.

The first section below showcases my personal favorite images from the day, followed by some great venue information, and then the full set of images for those who want to see more.

Hungry Jack Lodge Information:

If you want a Northwoods wedding, Hungry Jack Lodge, 32 miles north of Grand Marais is such a perfect spot. Not only do they have epic views over Hungry Jack Lake but they have more facilities and accommodations than almost anywhere else along the Gunflint Trail. A big bonus is that the staff was super cool to my couple, and also really great to work with.

Hungry Jack Lodge Resort & Campground is found at the halfway point of the Gunflint Trail, right next to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA). It’s the only resort on Hungry Jack Lake and surrounded by the six million acre Superior National Forest. The resort lies just 2 miles south of the Canadian Border. It’s the perfect balance of convenience & amenities along with the peaceful calm of the Northwoods lakeside. You can actually access the BWCA right from Hungry Jack Lake. With only one small portage, it makes it a perfect place for fun day trips into the BWCA. I can’t recommend this place enough for not only your wedding but for a vacation visit as well. See below for a list of offerings and amenities.
