Charlotte & Ethan | Dreamy Elopement at Schmeeckle Reserve in Stevens Point, WI

I’m so excited to share this dreamy and romantic fall elopement!!! I first started chatting with Ethan and Charlotte this February- before all of the crazy set in. Little did they know at the time they were planning the perfect nuptials for 2020! We met at Emy J’s coffee shop and discuss their wedding day plans, with only the company of their parents and a best friend whom performed their ceremony. They planned on a first look and bridal session before their ceremony so they could head straight to their place to have everyone over for dinner. Fast forward several months and we met again, this time at Schmeeckle. We hiked through the park discussing potential ceremony locations; they knew they wanted to get married there as they shared so many wonderful dates and chats while exploring the reserve! We visited the many sites they wanted as photo spots, as well as deciding on a ceremony spot, under a grand oak tree.

The big day came and I could not have been more excited. Charlotte showed up in her gorgeous green gown just radiant, and Ethan looked quite dapper! You guys – The entire afternoon was Pure Magic!!! It was a moody day with the most lovely light, Charlotte and Ethan have the sweetest chemistry and were a joy to work with. With fall all around us we strolled through the park stopping everywhere for beautiful photo opportunities.

We circled back to the oak tree where they shared their first look for their intimate ceremony that was overwhelmingly full of love. There were several sweet tears falling as they shared personally written vows, even I was tearing up! We then did a few family photos and headed to Ethan and Charlotte’s place to get a few fun photos there before they sat down with family for dinner. Congrats again Charlotte and Ethan, here are a few of my favorites!
