A modern and sleek wedding, with loads of beautiful details, great laughs, and a ring-bearer doggo!
Elaina + Nate met when they lived close to each other, and Elaina got stuck in the winter snow, and had to ask neighbors (including Nate) for assistance. Nate didn't get the car unstuck sadly, but he + Elaina really hit it off, and went on to be good friends for the next year or so, before they moved into boyfriend/girlfriend territory. Nate proposed on top of a mountain, which is only fitting...
These two, with their love of adventure, physically challenging hobbies (Tough Mudder, anyone?), and each other, were the freaking cutest! They were soooo excited to see each other for their first look, and couldn't wait to walk down aisle! I love seeing folks who are so excited to be with one another, who get pumped to celebrate with their friends and family, and who are such nice people, that they are clearly beloved by all who attended the wedding to celebrate with them! How tight knit these two are with their families is something to see as well! Nate's sister even did a freestyle rap as part of her toast, to the tune of Fresh Prince of BelAir! So... we really have seen it all now!
Enjoy the photos of this fabulous wedding on the Monona Terrace rooftop, and join me in wishing nothing but happiness to these two awesome individuals and their families! (Also check out their super cute ring-bearer doggo!)
