Kimberley + Jason: A Dr. Who Themed Madison Wedding

This Dr. Who themed wedding was out of this world! 

#sorrynotsorry

Kim + Jason have a love of all things Dr. Who, and their wedding was not only a tribute to their their love for each other, and their family and friends, but also their shared love of the Doctor! Jason was dressed as the 11th Doctor (sonic screwdriver, and all) and Kim had on a gorgeous custom-made Tardis dress. The best man was dressed as the 10th doctor, and the bridesmaids were dressed in matching Dr. Who dresses, and a number of guests also dressed the part as well! 

Kim + Jason's ceremony was short, and sweet, and officiated by Kim's brother. It ended with a symbolic hand-tying ceremony, which the couple opted for instead of a ring exchange. After the ceremony, Kim + Jason greeted their guests and then we spent some time walking around the Olbrich Botanical Gardens taking photos of the two of them practicing their first dance (with the best man there providing dancing tips). From there, we headed over to the Goodman Community center for a fun, laid-back reception, featuring a ton of adorable dancing children, including the couple's two kiddos, and, you guessed it, a Dr. Who-themed cake! 

Kim + Jason's wedding day was an awesome celebration of the commitment of thees two super neat people, and we couldn't be happier we got to celebrate with them!

Jenny + Brad: A Sunny Olbrich Botanical Gardens Wedding

 

Jenny + Brad are exactly as laid back, happy, and fun as you would expect two people who met at a music festival to be...

Which is to say, very.

When Jenny was talking with us about how they met and their story, one of the things that really stuck out to me is the sense of family that they have, as a blended household. Jenny has a daughter, and Brad has a son and a daughter, and although the road was not always smooth, their kids get along great, and they have this wonderful way of interacting with each other and their kids that was a joy to capture! As Jenny put it, they have each other's back, and are truly partners, in every sense of the word, and that's what, at its heart, a marriage is supposed to be. 

We arrived at Olbrich Gardens to photograph their wedding, and the day was already sweltering! Jenny looked gorgeous in her dress, and I was so impressed and happy that she decided to go without makeup, since, as she put it, it's just not her thing. There is so much pressure on women in particular to be "perfect" on their wedding day, that I was super excited to see someone so confident in their natural beauty on their wedding day. 

Jenny + Brad did their first look by the willow tree in the Olbrich gardens, followed by their gorgeous and heartfelt outdoor ceremony, surrounded by their friends and family (and with their kids making up most of the wedding party!) After the ceremony, we spent some time with the wedding party (they do a great Brad impression!) and then just the couple, wandering around the lovely grounds and snapping some photos. After that, we headed over to the reception at the East Side Club where Jenny + Brad had karaoke, danced their first dance to Radiohead's 'All I Need', and indulged us in grabbing some sunset shots, where we got some super pretty pictures of the two of them and Rob got to photobomb a few teenage girls taking selfies. Win/Win! 

We're so happy to have gotten to celebrate with Jenny + Brad and their loved ones, and hope you enjoy the pictures!

Daniel + Seth: A Clue-Themed WI Wedding

 

Daniel + Seth had one of the most fun, intimate, and creative weddings we've ever had the good fortune to photograph! I mean, who doesn't want to be involved in a  Clue-themed wedding, complete with candlesticks, lead pipes, and  toy guns for props?! The ceremony held in Olbrich Conservatory in Madison, WI, and the reception at Louisianne's in Middleton, WI. The amazing cake (seriously, wait until you see it!) was made by Gigi's and make sure to scroll all the way to the end to see the surprise this cake (and these two awesome grooms) had in store for these wedding guests!
