Shawn & Alexis | Central Wisconsin Mid-Summer Dream Wedding

Shawn and Alexis enjoyed the most beautiful day with the best friends and support any couple could ask for!  The morning started off bright and with birds singing in the background (yeah, they were super delighted and extra chipper) as I photographed Alexis’s details.  She was inside getting pampered with the ladies while I worked away with her precious and carefully planned heirlooms and pretty things she would incorporate in her day.  There were plenty giggles shared and the girls surprised her with a scrapbook filled with years of cherished memories!  Shawn was at home with the guys enjoying a bit of a relaxing morning when I arrived and worked on his details.  Soon after Alexis slipped into her gown and the sweetest moment happened between her two sisters and her mom.  They all helped her get buttoned in before we headed to the park for their first look!

The lighting was magical and the park a perfect setting to share a special moment and some alone time together before the busyness of the day took off!  They were both all smiles and enjoyed a playful and sweet bridal session before their bridal party met them in the park.  These two met playing volleyball and have a close friend group from it.  Every single member of their wedding party plays volleyball, and we had some fun incorporating that!  Their party was down to have some fun and we totally did before heading to the church so these two could say their I Do’s!

Their ceremony was warm with every seat filled until there was standing room only.  to say these two have a lot of love and support is an understatement!  Their Pastor shared quite a fun and comedic proposal story, setting the room off in laughter several times creating a light and loving atmosphere before their vows and promises to another.  After sealing it with a kiss and lots of hugs, we were off to the reception where there was plenty more fun to be had and memories to make!  Shawn and Alexis invited family and friends over to the Central Wisconsin Convention Center for their reception where they enjoyed a fantastic dinner!  There were many great moments to the evening that made it a night to remember (I wish I could share all the photos here)!  Congratulations again Alexis and Shawn!!!  Here are a few favorites of mine:
