Couple To Wed On Frozen Minnesota Lake

BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) — It’s the ultimate winter wedding.

Bride-to-be Jennifer Truex explains that she will wed her fiance Dan Petrie on the ice of Gull Lake Saturday because they’re “outdoorsy people.”

Truex says even Petrie’s proposal was a bit out of the box. The two were four-wheeling in the woods last fall and “waist deep in mud” when Petrie proposed. Truex says she didn’t hesitate to say ‘yes’.

Saturday’s forecast in Brainerd calls for temperatures in the mid-30s. Truex tells the Brainerd Dispatch that she’s reminded guests to buddle up because the reception will be on the ice as well.

There will be ice fishing before and after the ceremony and minnows and fishing poles will decorate the tables.

And for their guests from Arizona and Texas, the couple will have a heated tent.
