Best.Day.Ever. Even if no one said it I'm certain everyone was thinking it. Madison and Nathan's wedding was one of the most joy filled celebrations I've ever photographed. I'm not sure if I've seen a bride and groom so overwhelmed with excitement and happiness. There we're so many smiles, hugs and laughs during the day it was impossible not to get swept away by it all.
Their celebration at The Boathouse at Sunday Park was stunning and the venue provided a perfect backdrop for a fantastic day. As I was working through their photos I was awe struck by what a great time the bride and groom, as well as all of the guests, had celebrating. I'm always looking for natural expression during a wedding and on this day especially, it was easy to find. Even on a normal day Madison and Nathan are incredibly joy filled. They always seem to be laughing together and enjoying each others company. It was something I noticed during their engagement session and really during every interaction I had with them leading up to their big day. Their default setting is happy and laughing, they have such incredible energy!
It was no surprise that they are surrounded by an incredible group of similarly joyous family and friends! I had met Madison's father Brian during our initial consultation. The four of us spent at least an hour and a half to two hours discussing their wedding plans, getting to know each other a bit and laughing hysterically. Everyone else I met on their wedding day had the same open, warmness about them and invited us into their day as if we were family there to celebrate with them. It was incredible!
Throughout the photos below you'll see examples of what I mean. Gut laughs and high fives during the ceremony. Hugs. Smiles. A few tears of joy. And one incredible father daughter dance turned dance party! All great examples of a beautiful couple in love surrounded by people who love them.
