Just a month ago I met up with Callie and Kelsey to photograph their engagement pictures and we stood on the balcony looking over into the space where their LaCrosse Mississippi River wedding would be talking about rain, the possibility of snow (because hey, it’s Wisconsin and it’s May… it could happen). But something else entirely happened. It was sunny and 75 degrees and let me tell you, it was an amazing day.
Callie was quietly getting ready in her room overlooking the river when I arrived in her beautiful gown, and her bridesmaids tucked delicate flowers into her hair. Meanwhile Kelsey was greeting guests that were arriving and enjoying a relaxing time in the lower level of the condo cooling off from the heat before walking down the aisle. Every detail sang of joy and of love. It was a bright, spring day just bursting with genuine, heartfelt moments. Oh the vows – they had me in tears. The music was wonderful, the dancing was wonderful and they topped the night off with fireworks near the shore.
Callie & Kelsey, thank you so much for inviting me to document your story. I am so lucky that I was the one able to tell it – I wish you both the most happiness in the world. Here’s to you two! Thank you for kicking off my wedding season with a bang!
