Doesn’t this wedding seem wonderfully Frozen-inspired?

Krystal+Jake had a B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L winter wedding day. It was cold as all get out, but so worth it, because just look at these first look photos and wedding party photos in that pretty February snow! Also, check out Krystal’s awesome use of a veil-turned-wedding-cape cuz holy smokes. <3

These two sweethearts also let us throw so much glitter at them to get that fun confetti shot, laughed and celebrated with their friends and families, and danced the night away. We loved how affectionate Krystal + Jake were with each other all day. They were so fun to photograph!

We are so honored to have been able to celebrate with Krystal+Jake, and take a look at their wedding day below!

Meaghan + Michael: A St. Patrick's Day Wedding

 

 A romantic, tradition-filled wedding day

Meaghan + Michael have had one hell of a year, including, amazingly, their house literally blowing up (thankfully they weren't injured, but their house wasn't so lucky). So it stands to reason that two people who have been through so much in such a short time, would have more reasons than your average couple to celebrate their wedding with gusto, and to truly understand the meaning, ahead of time, of the phrase 'for better or worse'. 

Their wedding day was filled with traditions demonstrating their love for each other. A hand-fasting ceremony, a stone-throwing ceremony, and a few four leaf clovers and pennies in shoes for good measure. 

I'll leave you with this beautiful quote, used during Meaghan's vows to Michael: 

"May you never steal, lie, or cheat. But, if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows. If you must lie, lie with me all the nights of my life. And if you must cheat, then please cheat death, because I couldn't live a day without you."

Akanksha + Andrew: A Multicultural Madison Winter Wedding

 

It was a bright, unseasonably warm day at the madison museum of contemporary art...

The second I met Akanksha + Andrew, I knew I was going to like them! They both seemed so genuine and down to earth, and really excited about their intimate, multicultural wedding, happening in February of 2017, and so happy that their families would get to meet for the first time. 

Just like the first day I met them, their wedding day in February was also unseasonably warm, which worked out well, with Akanksha's family traveling here from India, where the mid-60's is about the lowest the temperature ever gets. It was so awesome to see both sets of families so supportive and excited for the newlyweds, and the joy was palpable! While it was a smaller, more intimate wedding, there were quite a number of coworkers there to celebrate with Akanksha + Andrew, given that work is where they met and ultimately what led them down the aisle. The 50 or so guests who had arrived for the ceremony got settled in by the iconic staircase on the 1st floor of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA). The ceremony, short, sweet, and touching, was over in about 15 minutes, and from there, guests headed upstairs to Fresco, on the upper floor of MMoCA, where they were greeted by the couple, as well as Dublin O'Shea, a live band that includes one of Andrew's brothers. As the sun set (and my goodness was it a gorgeous sunset), the lights in Fresco created the perfect ambiance for a great dinner, and a fantastic evening for the couple, their families, and all of the guests! It couldn't have been a more beautiful day! Enjoy the photos!
