YMCA Camp Alexander Outdoor Wedding // Allicen + Zeb // Wisconsin Rapids

Brace yourself. You're about to be bombarded with the sweetest dog moments and the most gorgeous bride + groom portraits ever.
I couldn't have asked for a better way to kick off my wedding season. From our first meeting I knew this was gonna be a good one. Allicen and Zeb are two of the sweetest, most laid back people you'll ever meet. They made me and Hannah feel welcome all.day.long. I love couples that are partners and team mates. These two hunt and fish together and raise their pups and genuinely just have the best time with each other and their group of friends.
Now if you're in Wisconsin you know that we got hit with snowpocalypse about three weeks before this wedding. So I was a little nervous. But Wisconsin pulled out all the stops and gave me one of my favorite kind of days. Overcast and not too hot not too cold and some light rain in the evening. Not only that but Camp Alexander is my favorite venue in Wisconsin Rapids. It's gorgeous and right on the water and feels super laid back and cozy. So it was perfect for Allicen and Zeb. Everyone had a beer in their hand and dinner included the most bomb mac n cheese and the dance floor was insaaane (I might have done a knee slide because BSB was playing... whoops.). It basically felt like a very romantic, legit, grown up version of the last night at summer camp. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else but it's the only way I can describe it.

I fully support anyone who forces their dogs to wear wedding attire.

These pictures of Karoo watching Allicen are hands down my favorite "getting into the dress" photos I have ever taken.

I honestly didn't even realize we took this many portraits... I just went nuts. Proof that Allicen and Zeb must like me a little bit or they're just the most accommodating and sweet people around.

Ok. Just another thing that made me cry... May 12th also happens to be Zeb's parent's anniversary. They celebrated 34 years of marriage and Allicen and Zeb surprised them with a special dance and their own cake to cut.

My feet hurt for about a week after this wedding. I am so so insanely grateful that these guys let me be a part of their day. And not only that but they, their families, and their friends made me feel so welcome and handed me drinks and food and danced the night away with me. I couldn't love this crew anymore. Zeb and Allicen - You two are the real deal. And I'm sorry but I expect you to call me up everytime you're back in Nekoosa. Take care of each other xoxo

Justin + Anne | Winter Wedding | The YMCA Camp Alexander Wisconsin Rapids

Justin and Anne got set up years ago and man I think everyone is glad they did. These two got married on a windy Saturday at the end of January. Their Camp Alexander wedding was like a cozy winter retreat with beautiful decorations and the most bomb dresses. And any wedding that has a hot cocoa bar and soup for dinner is my kind of wedding!!!
I was so honored to be able to document this day. I think everyone will agree with me when I say it was a long time coming. Justin and Anne just go together. She is calm and sweet and he is funny and caring. My favorite part of the day was during the ceremony when Anne reached the front of the aisle and I heard Justin whisper to her telling her how beautiful she looked. Aaaand then to no one's surprise, Anne had to try to avoid eye contact with Justin because she was trying not to cry haha.

After their first kiss Justin said "One more." and they kissed again. And then my heart nearly exploded from cuteness overload.
