Christie and Jeff share an incredibly fun and loving relationship. We could sense this immediately when we met with them and started talking about their engagement session. They planned to do it at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison where the Wisconsin Badgers football team plays. They were looking for fun and artistic photographers to work with to match their style and take some incredible pictures of them in the football stadium. They were ecstatic with the results, and so were we! These two are so much fun to hang out with, and their wedding day was the icing on the cake. They planned an incredibly beautiful and classy wedding in Racine. Our day started off getting to know the bridesmaids at the Tangles Salon. This was such a fun group to work with! Christie had planned their wedding day to be on a Badger bye week so she wouldn't have to miss any of the action, but unfortunately they changed the schedule! She was sure to keep tabs on her team though!
Next we were off to Jeff's family church to meet up with the boys and to get some finishing touches.
It's always such an honor to be part of a couple's wedding day. They were both so excited to see each other and to exchange vows, the energy in the air was so much fun!
The original plan was to take some bridal party portraits in downtown Racine. It's full of historic brick buildings and timeless charm. Unfortunately a few weeks out from the wedding when we were finalizing details, we discovered that there was a huge event going on downtown which blocked off major streets and made parking our party bus quite a challenge. Everyone put their heads together and we came up with some last minute alternatives to still capture some fun bridal party portraits. We ended up at the Wind Point Light House and a nearby park, both wonderful backdrops!
Their reception was held at the Racine Architect Hotel in a grand ballroom. The lighting, the colors, the details all came together to create a magical atmosphere. Their bridal party was composed of a lot of really incredible friends. We heard so many fun stories!
Congratulations Christie and Jeff! Thank you so much for the privilege of being part of your special day! We wish you the very best!
