Casey and Amanda were wed on a beautiful day in June at the Chandelier Ballroom in Hartford, WI. I was so honored to photograph (read: cry through) their day! The ceremony and reception were held at the same venue which gave them the chance to exchange gifts before Amanda got ready for the day! Amanda did a beautiful pre-wedding photo shoot and had it bound into a book for Casey, I will NEVER forget him telling her how much he loved the book and that he initially thought it was going to be a cutting board!! Haha, Amanda he will certainly keep you laughing through life and that is so important! Casey’s gift to Amanda were beautiful, delicate diamond hoop earrings. He did a great job choosing and they matched Amanda’s wedding day aesthetic perfectly!
The guys started the day with drinking beer, smoking cigars and playing lawn games. They were definitely a daper bunch in their gray suits! Amanda and the girls popped champagne and relaxed together until it was time to put on the dress. The girls were so excited and happy to see Amanda in her dress for the bridesmaid reveal, it was an awesome moment in their day! Their ceremony included the cutest flower girl and ring bearer duo, possibly EVER. Seriously, so precious. Although, nothing could outshine their vows for eachother. Amanda and Casey’s wedding may forever go down as the wedding I cried the most at. They had so many wonderful, meaningful moments from their vows to the speeches – I was always on the verge of tearing up! (Get it together, Kelley) After the ceremony, we went to a nearby park for portraits. Their colors PERFECTLY complemented the park’s green landscape. I cannot get over the colors in the images of them and their bridal party!! The couple looked amazing during portraits – danced, laughed, and snuck a few kisses!
Casey and Amanda, thank you so much for having me be a part of your day!! I was truly touched by the love you two share and the love of your family and friends. Also, I had Nicki Minaj stuck in my head for days and I don’t think I will ever hear that song and not picture the two of you. I wish you all the happiness that life has to offer. Congratulations! XO
