Amy and Adam were married on October 10th, with a ceremony at the St. Raymond’s Catholic Church in Fall Creek and a reception at the Holiday Inn South in Eau Claire, WI.
I started out the day capturing the “getting ready” images as Amy and her ladies got their hair and makeup done, with my second shooter, Jeff, by my side. It was so much fun to capture the excitement as Amy got dressed and every second brought her closer to the big day.
Once Amy was ready—and absolutely gorgeous—we headed out to the first look. Amy and Adam brought notes to exchange with each other out back near the water fountain at the church, which was the perfect backdrop for that intimate, gentle moment.
We grabbed some family formals along with the wedding party, and as you can see from the photos, the whole group had a blast together! There was a lot of joking around and laughter, which always makes my job easier. Those genuine smiles that come from laughter are some of the best to capture! The ceremony for their wedding was beautiful because two families become one.
We jumped on the limo bus after the ceremony and hit up Phoenix Park with the wedding party after the family formals, and by the time we got back to Holiday Inn for the cocktail hour, everyone was enjoying themselves. It was clear that they were having so much fun together and for those family members we missed at the ceremony, we had a blast out on the patio for more fun family formals.
Amy and Adam made a grand entrance with their wedding party into the reception for the dinner, still riding the high of the wedding itself as well as spending so much time with their amazing group of friends and family. It was too much fun watching them dance the night away! With the jam packed dance floor, I was able to capture a moment between the ring bearer and the flower girl as you can see below… those moments that two people share together, it was a highlight from Amy & Adam’s wedding day for me.
Adam & Amy, thank you for letting me be part of all the fun and excitement of your big day. I truly enjoyed getting to know you and wish you both the best!
