Robin and Bryan and such a sweet couple, and tied the knot on a beautiful summer day in Madison, WI. Robin has that classic elegance and was so beautiful in her Casablanca gown and side swept hair. The couple were married at the impressive Bethel Lutheran Church right off of Johnson Ave. and decided to do a first look before the ceremony to ease some nerves and it was so perfect. Bryna also looked quite dapper in his Vera Wang tux and these two side by side are quite the pair.
After the ceremony we headed to the beautiful State Capital and photographed all over the grounds and inside, I just adore shooting there, and then a quick stop at the amazing Allen Centennial Gardens – what a beautiful place for bride and groom portraits. The reception was help at the Monona Terrace and was the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous summer evening and painted twilight skies. Watching all of their friends and family come together and celebrate this was amazing couple was the perfect way to end the night. I was honored to be a part of there special day and wish them all the best!
