Alright, I'm just going to say it out loud- this wedding blew my fricken mind.
... I said it!
Everything was utterly amazing.
The bride & groom were oh so in love. The bridesmaids were helpful and hilarious, & the groomsmen.. also hilarious ;) Every detail planned to a T. All vendors working in harmony. Ugh, I'm getting a little emotional just thinking of it!
It always amazes me how the Universe always give you exactly what you need. I had been checking the weather forecast all week (as if it actually matters in Wisconsin. We just went from 80 degree weather to 45 degrees in about .04 seconds the other week!). Snow & rain had been in the forecast, dancing between Saturday and Sunday. For this reason exactly, I always carry clear umbrellas with me to weddings, just in case we need them! Thankfully, we didn't need them in the slightest! The sun decided to show it's sweet face just in time for their ceremony at The Greenhouse at Bittersweet Floral. Oh wow, guys, just wait until you see those photos!
Cody & Drew's ceremony is probably one of my most favorite to date. Glimmers of light shone through the greenhouse glass onto the couple, as to bless them and kiss them well wishes. Warm, happy plants were scattered along the walls between sweet lanterns of light. Drew, singing sweet notes of love to his bride, declaring his love to her in front of their friends & family. There wasn't a dry eye in the crowd after that, or behind my camera. My favorite part of the ceremony was part of Cody's vows to Drew when she said,
"I promise to love you without caution"
because that's what it's all about, ya'll. Love. Take away any fine detail, dress, suits and venues- you'll be left with love, and love is really all you need.
Enjoy my favorite images from their gorgeous day! Thank you to all who helped make Cody & Drew's day a huge success!
My favorite part about groomsmen photos is that every time I ask "So, who has seen the Mighty Ducks?" they instantly get into the V formation! Yes!
Drew, with his brother, sang a song for Cody and left everyone in the room misty eyed! <3
