Y'all... really... the L. O. V. E. that oozed from this wedding was INCREDIBLE!!!
These photos genuinely show what this couple is about. Love and laughter. There was never a moment I saw them without a smile on their faces!
Emily and Dan shared this pure happiness with their friends and family on, what turned out to be a very humid September day in Brown County State Park. With the threat of a storm brewing all week, we weren't sure how the outdoor ceremony would go, but there was never a worry. The morning sunshine peeked through the fog and the day was off to a good start!
There were plenty of umbrellas to go around in case it rained, and every guest was given a ribbon wand for a colorful sendoff. The couple said 'I do' in front of a beautiful art piece, hand painted by the maid of honor.
To tie in the couple's love for the art of theater, a few ladies from the Strange Tree Group started off the ceremony wearing shades of yellow, waving green pennants to celebrate the occasion. The Nature Center overlook was the perfect backdrop!
Immediately following the ceremony was a hay ride! A real tractor, actual hay, excitement, laughter, our happiness and CARMEL APPLES! Yep, you read that right... Carmel apples for everyone as they enjoyed a ride around the gorgeous Brown County State Park!
After site seeing around the park, cocktail hour and the reception were held in an park shelter that we gussied up with some incredible vintage camping decor from the bride's mother.
The sweetheart tables was dressed in lace and had the most incredible vintage decor.
Refreshing cocktails were provided by Cardinal Spirits!
Following dinner was the best part of the night... DONUTS!!!!
Go ahead and wipe the drool from your face because, yes, they were just as good as they look! These incredible donuts were brought down by some gracious guests from Do-Rite Donuts in Chicago.
Freshly made on the wedding day!
With drinks and donuts flowing, the dancing and laughter never subsided.
I'll forever be grateful that Emily and Dan chose me to help them with their special day. Being exposed to this level of joy is a highlight of my career!
