All the Small Things
Nothing would be able to hold Kadie and Adam back from having their La Crosse, WI Wedding. This couple had been waiting 2 years to get married, and they were not going to let a pandemic get in their way! When asked what each of them was looking forward to the most prior to their wedding, Kadie said she was looking forward to spending the whole day with the people, and person, she loves most. Adam said he was most excited about seeing Kadie walk down the aisle, true love!
Kadie and Adam’s ceremony and reception took place at Celebrations on the River. This location is one of the best wedding venues in Wisconsin! It has everything available including a getting ready suite, onsite ceremony site, and tons of spots for photographs! After dinner, we stepped away from the wedding guests for a private photo shoot with just the bride and groom. We were able to go down by the pier to capture beautiful photos near the water. These images are my absolute favorite because of how relaxed and in love Kadie and Adam are together.
What I Loved Most About the Day
Ben and I have photographed a lot of weddings. Although we have captured so many special days for our beloved brides and grooms, we still remember all of them. What stands out to us the most at a wedding, and what wedding guests really appreciate too, are the small things. For example, Kadie’s father had passed away some time ago. To ensure that he would be there with her the entire day, she had a small picture of him added to her beautiful bouquet.
Kadie and Adam also wrote their own vows! They were SO emotional and beautifully written. You could tell that their words were really spoken from the heart. When Kadie’s aunt sang during the ceremony, all of the wedding guests had goosebumps, myself included! When thinking about your big day, think about how you can incorporate those small, meaningful moments that your wedding guests will never forget. Be sure to share these small things with Ben and I too, so we can capture these moments for you to look back on for years to come. Thank you, Kadie and Adam, for letting us capture all of the small things at your exquisite wedding!
It’s incredibly important to Kadie and Adam that they have all their portraits and memories in one place. They selected a hand-crafted custom album. I am so excited to put it together for them!
