Hollie + James | Summer Wedding | The Ridges Golf Course | Wisconsin Rapids

These two started out as just friends. They hung out in the same group and everything about their relationship was strictly platonic. Until one day, Hollie decided there might be something more to James than just a buddy. And well, of course, Jimmy wasn't going to put up a fight. Fast forward, and they already make the best team ever raising their son Jace so I have no doubt that these guys are going to kill that husband-wife game.
The morning ofJames and Hollie's wedding, I walked into a room filled with balloons and was greeted with a mimosa. So I already knew it was going to be a good day.

I helped the bridesmaids zip up their dresses and pick out their lipstick and they told me about how they all cried when Hollie found her wedding dress. And ummm it's easy to see why. Lord have mercy.

 I pinky promised Hollie and Jimmy it wouldn't rain for their pictures and their outdoor ceremony. And I don't break promises.

Can we have a moment of silence for how freaking good this wedding party looked?!?! Especially because these bridesmaids picked out their dresses all on their own.

I fully support bar hopping after the ceremony if it means cool photos in old buildings.

Holly and James entered their reception to The Rolling Stones. So you know they're good people. And you know they had one hell of a dance party.

Pro tip: the best way to get killer dancing photos is to have a Jim Beam in hand and break it down with the wedding party.

I know I said I promised it wouldn't rain for the ceremony and photos but I'm pretty glad that it showed up during dinner because look at those post storm skies...
