Rachel & Nathan – Wisconsin Winter Wedding

On 20, Jan 2012 | No Comments | In Weddings | By Valo

Looking to the skies, hoping for snow… all that was delivered was rain. It is the end of December… what is going on here… why is it raining?

We shoot… getting ready, first look, some of the bridal portraits. We keep looking to the sky, wondering why… where is the snow? In a truly magical twist of fate, the rain changes to snow on our way to our portrait location… and it stays in snow mode just long enough to grab some winter wonderland with the bridal party and the amazing Rachel and Nathan… it was meant to be.

We were honored to be a part of Rachel and Nathans wedding day. It seems like just yesterday we were shooting the wedding of her sister Rebecca. It was great to see familiar faces, chat with family and friends we were blessed to meet at Becca’s wedding, and see more amazing talent from Rachel. Both weddings were awesome, and each in their own way. Everything about this wedding fit Rachel and the day. The smell of Christmas was in the air with wreaths, trees, pine cones and cookies. No detail was left undone… right down to the gold stamps on the tea. Custom DIY was the name of the game. All the centerpieces and flowers were arranged by the fabulous mother of the bride, while all the printed material was done by Rachel herself. Custom wedding logo, handmade signs, and a fabulous designed 2012 calendar for people to take with them.

On top of all the details, the simple, overwhelming joy and love that was in the air made me smile the whole night. Even with the snow turning back into some freezing rain, the warmth of the love at this wedding kept the mood so peaceful, right up to the grand exit where snow was produced from the hands of everyone there. Thank you Rachel and Nathan for having us as part of your wedding day…

One of my favorite weddings to date, check out some of my favorites from the day:
