What was the overall creative inspiration for your wedding?  My mom is a florist and has been drawing in inspiration for over 30 years from different weddings, venues, and flowers. Although she has seen many fun ideas, we have the same style and rarely stray away from timeless designs. Luckily, I was born and raised in a beautiful old home with a magnificent backyard that made the perfect classic venue. What was your color palette?  Neutrals, white, cream. What was the...

What was your favorite moment in your ceremony and reception? Walking down the aisle and seeing all of our guests enjoying a cocktail and beaming.

What was the inspiration for the look and feel of your wedding? We wanted to keep things simple and classy, but not too "plain." What was your color palette? Navy, plum, gold, and lots of pearl accents. Our birthdays are a day apart, and our birthstone is a pearl. My dress had pearl accents, and we incorporated pearls into a lot of the décor for this reason. What was the significance of your wedding location? La Crosse is in the middle of both our hometowns and...

Katlynn (Hamilton) and Mitchel Larson June 3, 2017 ©Emily Jean Photography For many reasons, June 3 is a special day for Mitchel and me: He asked me “officially” to be his girlfriend; he got down on one knee on Grandad Bluff to propose; and we said “I do.” Our wedding day was such an exciting, emotional, and beautiful day! My bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law started the day at Metropolitan Salon and Day Spa. One of my best friends, Alex Mahairas,...

Rebekah (Dahl) + Ben Seinola May 13, 2017 ©Emily Schmidt Photo Ben and I have always enjoyed the outdoors. We spend much of our time hiking and biking many of the scenic areas. So it was fitting that Ben proposed on one of our hikes through Whitewater State Park. That morning as we were planning our hike, he insisted on taking the trail to Coyote Point. I wasn’t sold. This trail was a hard hike from the start, and we had just hiked it two weeks prior. I didn’t see...

Ashlee (Bryhn) & Andrew Stanke April 8, 2017 ©Endless Images Photography Our wedding day was (almost) what we imagined it to be! Before the ceremony began, a huge car accident happened outside of our venue. Andrew and his groomsmen were there, and one of them tore their pant leg running to help. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but what a way to get the adrenaline going, just an hour before our marriage vows. At the ceremony, we played a few hit pop songs so we could...

Courtney (Zeimet) & Joel Dahlby October 15, 2016 ©Emily Schmidt Photo After a three-year engagement, Joel and I were married at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Genoa, on Oct. 15, 2016. It was important for us to be married there, as that is the church my parents were married in and the one I grew up in. We did not have a traditional “wedding party.” Rather, we chose to honor our families by asking them to take part in the important parts of the Mass with us....

I woke up the morning of my wedding day to big, black clouds rolling in and thunder. After 10 minutes, it started to downpour and then came the hail. My husband-to-be sent me a text, quoting Alanis Morissette's song, “Ironic”: "It's like raaain on ‘our’...

Jenna (Cramer) & Vittorio Piantedos August 6, 2016 ©Tiffany Brubaker Photography Unlike most weddings, this was the second time we married each other. We met on vacation in the Mediterranean in 2012. Spending time together took some creativity, since I lived in Italy, Jenna in Ohio, and the Atlantic Ocean was in between us. Our solution to a long-distance, two-year relationship was a small courthouse wedding. Right after that, we started preparations for our real wedding...
