This weekend a very special ceremony took place at Camp du Nord near Ely, Minnesota. Adam Maxwell and Neva were united in marriage. Adam worked at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters for a number of years and has the spirit of a true adventurer. Neva obviously has the spirit of adventure all true Voyageur’s do.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend this incredible event and reunion of Voyageur Canoe Outfitter’s crew. They are our family and it was such a difficult thing to not be able to attend this event and support them with my presence. Luckily Mike was able to attend and witness this union of two beautiful people. In addition to Mike our dear Voyageur Crew members were able to stand up for them during the ceremony.
Ryan Ritter, who has worked with Voyageur Canoe Outfitters and is a brother of our current Manager Matt Ritter and who is dating Tessa Olson, a past Voyageur crew member was the best man. He along with Tessa and previous crew member Jake Bendel paddled to Hudson Bay with Adam.
Ryan’s brother, Matt and Cassidy, our current managers were able to attend as were previous crew Mike Irwin, Adam Nelson and Dana Gilbertson. Mike Swenson another crew member who is currently living in Ireland was unable to attend.
After this wonderful weekend event we are thinking a reunion of Voyageur Canoe Outfitter crew members is in order for our 25th Anniversary in the summer of 2018. We’re thinking July 7th and 8th in 2018 would be a great opportunity to celebrate all of the amazing crew we’ve been able to have over the years. If you are one of those folks who has blessed us with being a part of our crew over the years, then please, save the date, we’d love to see you at Voyageur.
May God Bless the union of Adam and Neva!
