Dakota and Maria tied the knot at the Grand River Center in Dubuque. This venue was the perfect location for their celebration because it’s right on the Riverwalk where they spent a lot of time together when they first started dating.

Even in the midst of the pandemic, these two still got married. Masks were worn, social distancing was followed as closely as possible, and it was a great day. I’m happy that Annika and Kevin were still able to have the wedding that they planned on with their friends and family.
