Chic Classic Wedding at the Florian Gardens | Sarah & Mack

It was the same aisle that Mack’s grandparents had once walked down, the same aisle where 26 years ago Mack’s parents also walked out as husband and wife.  The same aisle where this past Saturday Sarah & Mack also promised each other that they would spend the rest of their lives together.  There in the heart of Mack’s families hometown at St. Peter & Paul in Independence, WI these two became one.  It was an absolute perfect way to start their chic classic wedding at the Florian Gardens in Eau Claire.

These two high school sweethearts had been dreaming about their wedding day for the past nine years when Sarah asked Mack to the Sweetheart Switch dance (their high schools version of the Sadie Hawkins dance).  Oh, as Sarah recalls when she was going to ask him she says… “someone had already asked him, and he turned her down.”  She then proceeded to ask that girl if it was alright if she would ask Mack, the girl gave her blessings and look where we are!  These two went from #wiggytowoz on an October Saturday.

When I arrived at the Florian Gardens I found Sarah getting ready with all of her girls, Mack with his guys and both so excited for the day to begin.  We had a forecast of rain for the afternoon but it just so happened that these two decided to see each other before the ceremony and get a good chunk of their portraits done before the vows.  It was such a blessing because as soon as we were done with family portraits it started to pour… and didn’t let up much the remainder of the day.  Which, well… sometimes can also be a blessing. But you’ll have to wait to see why at the end of the post.

Thanks to the vendors who made their chic wedding day possible:

Nora & Cory’s LaCrosse Engagement Photos on the Bluffs

LaCrosse Engagement Photos on the Bluffs

A refrigerator on the fritz, what are the college girls to do?  Call to have it looked at and repaired.  Who shows up?  A couple of guys, one who happened to have just moved to the area, the other his brother the owner of the repair company.  It was Nora who answered the door that day, greeted by these two guys.  And it was Cory wearing a baseball hat that Nora thought was pretty cute.  They chatted and parted ways and a few short weeks later Cory reached out on Facebook messenger to Nora.  The thing was… Nora couldn’t tell who he was by his profile picture because he had a helmet on.  Then it dawned on her… it was the guy she had met a few weeks back and it all came together.  Want to know what the craziest part of this is?  They’re both from Eau Claire but didn’t meet until they were both living in LaCrosse, even though they had mutual friends!

December of this past year Nora & Cory headed off to a Packer game just after Nora had returned from 12 weeks away from home for a clinical in Texas.  It was Nora’s first time at a game at Lambeau Field.  They tailgated then made their way towards the stadium where Cory asked a another fan to quick take their photo.  Little did Nora know that Cory had just told the fan that he was going to propose.  Nora could see the lady was upset (or so she thought)… she later found out that she was just nervous to miss the moment.  But it was there that Cory got down on one knee and proposed to Nora… AND the Packers won!  That right there is a win-win!

Last Thursday I drove to LaCrosse in hopes of beating the rain that had been following me all day, and that we did.  We explored Riverside Park just steps from downtown and then headed for a secret place Nora & Cory love to frequent.  It was a gorgeous day to be looking over town from the bluffs.

Sweet Fall Mondovi Engagement Photos | Melanie & Derek

Last Tuesday I met Melanie and Derek just outside a place where they spend a lot of time together for their sweet fall Mondovi engagement photos.  It’s a place where they hunt & fish together (or where Derek hunts and fishes and Melanie reads quietly bundled up).  I would say it’s a pretty perfect place with it’s beautiful trails nestled along the creek bed.

Not so very long ago Melanie & Derek met by way of…. Tinder.  Yep, that’s right!  They said they must have both had their profiles set to 50 miles because with Melanie living in Winona, MN at the time and Derek in Mondovi it would have JUST been within those 50 mile limits.  And while they laugh about how they met, I can truly tell that these two are head over heels for one another and that is what makes what I do so very rewarding.  To see them laugh, to see them snuggle, to see them take the rain drops at the end of the session in stride cuddled under a blanket.  I really adore that!

With no idea that Derek had picked out a ring and was going to ask Melanie to spend the rest of their lives together, this past summer these two took off on a trip together – heading south and ending up in Nashville.  That’s where Derek proposed!

Melanie & Derek will be getting married next September at the Florian Gardens, and then taking a honeymoon of a lifetime.  I have to say some of their plans have me dreaming about checking those spots off on my own travel bucket list!

Eau Claire Senior Photos | Haley

It’s no secret for the past few weeks that it’s been raining almost every other day (if not every day).  It seems like we have had more rain than sun and it’s been a lot of shifted dates and sessions… which is no fun for anyone!  But… after having to reschedule Haley’s Eau Claire senior photos no less than five times.. last Monday the stars aligned and the sun peeked it’s face out for these gorgeous shots.  I have been dying to share them… so here they are!

Haley | Class of 2018 | Cadott High School
