Ryan + Kari | Married | A Stoughton Country Club Wedding.

November 5, 2014

A love story 8 years in the making. A bride who could absolutely not stop smiling or sweetly saying, “I am just so happy” all throughout the day. A handsome groom who’s country twang + guitar picking won over his sweetheart almost a decade ago. Ryan + Kari are wildy, madly, + tenderly in love. I am thrilled AND honored to be sharing their wedding celebration with you on the blog today!!

Kari might, quite possibly be, the nicest person I have EVER met. She is so poised, gentle, + loving. She cares deeply + with great intention. And the way she absolutely adores + admires her now husband, Ryan, is a force to be reckoned with. Her LOVE is a force to be reckoned with : ) And then there’s Ryan, the man beside this amazing woman. Humble, charming, noble, + witty. I kept catching him whispering to Kari, “You look like a rockstar.” I just LOVE their love (I know it’s a cheesy saying, but it really is true!!!) Meeting + working with them has been such a blessing in our lives this wedding season : ) 

I am pretty confident you are going to love the images to come. A truly radiating bride surrounded by equally radiating love from her mother, sister, grandmother, + bridesmaids. Timeless wedding traditions upheld with grace + beauty. A greenhouse filled with laughter + deeply rooted friendships. And a reception room overflowing with happiness, support, good food, + awesome dancing : ) Ryan + Kari—FINALLY : ) We are so excited for you two as you begin this next season of your relationship as husband + wife. Praise God for your story–for His story : ) We LOVE you. xoxo : ) -M

The “something blue” in Kari’s bouquet was a bird that she + her sister have passed back + forth for as long as they can remember–on gifts … at holidays … hidden in each other’s bedrooms + then dorm rooms … I just LOVE that Kari found it in her bouquet!!


I LOVED this location!! And those flowers!!!
