Helissa & Tim’s Cottage Winery & Vineyard Wedding

Last Friday I made my way to Helissa & Tim’s Cottage Winery & Vineyard wedding in Menomonie, WI.  It was a perfect, bright and sunny August afternoon and I knew that I would find both of these two smiling when I arrived.  Guess what?  I was right!  Helissa & Tim were just so thrilled to be married and I’m so glad I could be the one to document it.

With 50 of their closest family & friends I documented their very personal ceremony, complete with a tree planting portion that included Tim’s children adding the water to the dirt that the couple placed with the sapling.  After a little gathering with wine and cake we explored the grounds for a bit for their portraits before they headed off for the rest of their reception at Loopy’s.

I’m not sure if these two lovebirds are back from their honeymoon to Louisiana yet, but I couldn’t wait another day to share with you their happiness and sweet, sweet joy and care for one another just one more second.  So, without further ado… Helissa & Tim’s celebration!
