This wedding was one of those days that everything just aligned perfectly and you could FEEL the happiness all around you. Any Wisconsinite can attest that we have had the wettest few months ever, the flooding and the mosquitoes were horrible. Then Mother nature blessed us with the most beautiful first day of Autumn that anyone could have dreamed up and we really haven’t had a day like this since. Imagine a sunny blue sky, light breezes and no bugs. I think just the no bugs itself everyone could have just hugged each other!
I had never photographed at the Wild Rose Ranch in Baraboo before, but I had heard of it, and was so excited to be there. Kristy and Jesse radiate love. Their chemistry is apparent and there were numerous times that happy tears covered guests faces and I was one of them.
Kristy had worked with Jesse’s family to give her husband-to-be the sweetest surprise. Jesse’s sister, Erika is in the Marines and was going to miss the wedding because of an upcoming deployment. However, her deployment was moved back a few weeks so she able to attend. As the boys were getting ready, she pooped in and JESSE HAD NO CLUE. His reaction was priceless and it was one of those Hallmark moments in my book.
I then met the girls at the cabin right next to Wild Rose and it was clear to see that Kristy’s bridesmaids adore her. I love getting to witness these amazing friend groups that have so much love and respect for one another.
The duo tied the knot high atop the Baraboo bluffs and it was perfect. We shot all around the grounds afterward, ate a yummy BBQ dinner, and the guests had a blast dancing the night away. I will let the rest of the pics tell the story. Congratulations you two! Thank you so much for having me document your beautiful day! And thank you to my girl Katie Hunt photography for second shooting with me!
Such a great surprise!!!
Love the first looks with Dad!
Cutest Flower girl! I need to get my daughter some of these cowboy boots asap.
Even the stables were immaculate to shoot in. Love the lines in these.
We chased the sun till it went down and it was perfect!
