Carrie + Tom: A Fun Library Wedding with Trivia!

CarrieTomBlog-1015.jpg

This wedding replaced first dances with some kickass Geeks Who Drink Trivia! 

Carrie + Tom have just about the greatest 'meet cute' story you've ever heard. They actually became roommates when they both moved up to Madison to work for Epic, and lived together for quite a while before they started dating! They bonded over Vincent Price movies, Edgar Allen Poe, wonderful Wisconsin beer, and surreal cartoons. They eventually decided to start dating (all while still being roommates)! 

How is that for a great way to start things off? 

For their wedding day, they definitely did it their way, including having Geeks Who Drink Trivia in place of dancing! (It was so fun to see the tables competing for first prize!) They also had a custom house crest (House of Crowlack) designed that combines their two last names into a SUPER sweet and mythical house beast! 

Congratulations to Carrie + Tom! It's been so wonderful getting to know you two and we are thrilled to have been able to celebrate your wedding with you! If you'd also like to check out their Engagement photos, click here

Holly + Richard: An April Showers Wedding Day

 

They met BECAUSE of a nap... 

That's right, you heard me. A nap. Holly + Richard had never met before a mutual friend of theirs invited them both out, and then decided to go take a nap (there's a longer story there, but she tells it better), leaving the two of them alone to get to know each other. Once their friend woke back up, she found that Holly + Richard were still chatting away, having a great time. Richard ended up asking Holly to go on a date with him the following evening to Bonfyre (famously, Richard said while she wasn't the first date he'd taken to Bonfyre, he was really happy that she would be the last), and the rest is history! 

Holly + Richard celebrated their love story at the Madison Central Library, and one of my favorite moments of the day was seeing Richard tear up as Holly and her Dad walked down the aisle towards him. 

It was a beautiful, chilly, and special day, and such an amazing honor to spend it with two very cool people and their family and friends, celebrating their commitment to each other!

Kelly + Matt: A Madison Library Wedding

 

A Wedding with a Literary Twist! 

If we had to use 3 words to describe Kelly + Matt’s wedding, it would be colorful, genuine, and FUN! These two are clearly joyful individuals, and as a couple, they really shine bright (look at those smiles)! We loved how all of the little details of the wedding were so perfectly suited to them – the table themes were famous authors, the centerpieces were notable books, and the reception itself was in the Madison Central Library. One of our favorite local vendors, Wood Violet Events + Styling, partnered with Kelly + Matt to create the atmosphere they were going for, and the results were amazing! We loved loved loved this wedding!
