TJ + Kennedy | Married | A Traditional Wedding with Modern Touches at the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery in Madison, WI.

July 22, 2015

If you know anything about NFL football, you will already know what I’m about to tell you. However, if you don’t watch football, I’m going to fill you in on something that is important to know for this post. There is a LONG-time rivalry that exists between two teams in the NFL: the Green Bay Packers + the Chicago Bears. I think it’s pretty obvious to everyone which is the better team (wink, wink), but I won’t pull for any sides for the sake of the couple on the blog today ; ) Kennedy … she is a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan, + TJ … he is a HUGE Bears fan!! Naturally, they had to include this somehow into their wedding day (it was also a part of their engagement session!!), so when the time came for the Grand Entrance at the reception, Kennedy was wearing her Packers Jersey with her new last name on the back–Turner–and the number 7, + TJ was wearing his Bears jersey with his name on the back + the number 18!! Together, it made their wedding day (07.18.15) + they proved to the world that a Packers + a Bears fan CAN love each other + make light the very serious rivalry ; ) hehe!! Although, all 250+ guests might have erupted into a “GO PACK GO” cheer after they came out … : )

All fun + joking aside (I couldn’t not include some fun from this day because TJ + Kennedy ARE the definition of FUN!!), what an amazing day Saturday was. This couple–they are influencers. They have such a large + STRONG network of people who seriously LOVE + support them. It is SO cool. The whole day was about everyone gathering together + celebrating TOGETHER. TJ + Kennedy ensured that they had time with their guests to say hi, hug, + tell them how thankful they are for their relationships in their lives. As I followed them around, or simply stood + watched, I really felt like they were celebrities!! Everyone just wanted to spend time + talk with the couple : ) They are popular (it’s true!!) + SO loved!! 

During the reception, TJ talked about how Kennedy is the glue that holds together all the relationships in her life. She is a connector + a lover of people. Kennedy got teary-eyed as she shared with guests her deep love + respect of TJ–how he is her rock, her best friend, + her biggest supporter. Their shared values of faith, family, + friends are SO united + so strong. It was a really amazing evening to be a part of : ) We feel so lucky to not just have TJ + Kennedy as clients, but as friends : ) 

Enjoy some of our favorites from their wedding day!! T+K–we LOVE you guys!! So much. Congrats on #turnINGherintoawife, TJ!! ; ) XOXOOX!!!
