Rachel and Kevin's Beautiful Church Wedding // La Crosse, WI

While Kevin seemed a bit nervous before the ceremony, Rachel was beaming with joy the entire day, as she should; she was an absolutely stunning bride marrying the man of her dreams! 

In Wisconsin, you never know how the weather will be in April, but we were blessed with a gorgeous, warm, sunny day! Before the ceremony, we started with portraits of Rachel with her ladies and Kevin with his guys, and then, of course, Bridal portraits and Groom photos. The ceremony at First Evangelical Church in La Crosse, WI was short and sweet, which gave us lots of time for family photos at the church and then wedding party/bride and groom portraits. The reception location, the Waterfront, was a dream. Overlooking the Mississippi River with a beautiful bridge in the distance, plus a fountain in front and cool dock, this was the perfect location for photos! And, boy, did we capture a lot of photos! After pictures, Rachel and Kevin cut their beautiful cake, made by the Waterfront, then they visited with guest while I took a few family photos.

A memorable quote from the bride's sister and maid of honor, during her speech "We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." ~Dr. Seuss

The whole night was filled with lots of dancing (especially by the kids) and fun pictures at the photo booth, run by my Husband! Oh, and his helper, 6 year old Joe, who took a real liking to running the computer! (So cute!) 

Thank you Rachel and Kevin for allowing me to be part of such a important day in your life! I am honored that I was able to document the many beautiful moments of day one of your lifetime of marriage. I am so beyond happy for you two!

 Kevin's Mom and Dad arrived as we were taking his portraits. I love this sweet candid moment of him and his Mom. Kevin's expression is priceless, typical guy.
