Eric + Jacquelyn | Married | A Glamorous Pink + Gold Wedding at The Madison Club in Downtown Madison, WI.

August 9, 2015

It’s very easy to get excited about a wedding when you share the SAME taste + style as the bride!! I’m forewarning you that I may go a little overboard on this post, but I just couldn’t help myself on Eric + Jacquelyn’s day!! Every detail was thought through + perfectly executed, the bride + groom looked like a celebrity couple on the runway (+ so did their bridal party!!), + the family + friends surrounding them all were filled to the brim with love + happiness. There was also a lot of pink lipstick involved!! : ) I’m guessing this wedding will shed a lot of inspiration + ideas for brides-to-be!!!! Which is so much fun! ALSO, side note: Jacquelyn was an art major in college + is now an art teacher, so all of the water color design sprinkled throughout the entire day was done by HER!! Just amazing!!

Eric + Jackie (as they all call her : )) have been together for 8 years … there is a LOT to be said about a couple who has been together for 8 years!! And, apparently, there is a photo of J+E sitting next to each other when they were babies in their carseats!!! Both families shared how they have already felt, for so long, how each of these two has been a part of their family + this day was much anticipated + warmly, joyfully welcomed : ) Friends shared stories from high school + college days, + how the love shared between Jackie + Eric is that out of a fairytale … I heard that time + time + time again. So many people inspired + moved by their mutual love + respect for one another.

While the outward appearance + details of the day was something out of a magazine, the most beautiful moments were truly experienced during the ceremony, when family of the bride + groom shared + dedicated songs to the couple while tears flowed + candles burned on the mantle : ) Eric + Jackie’s vows were both filled with the same things they love about each other … how they make each other better people, how they find encouragement from one another’s characters + are inspired to make better decisions + share more love because of their (now) spouse!! Simply witnessing the way these two gaze so lovingly at one another speaks volumes in + of itself.

To the Huckins – the happiest, happiest congratulations on your marriage! Oh, the places you’ll go together!! And the things you’ll do!! It will be SO fun to watch : ) Thank you for inviting us into your lives + for sharing your love with us!!!

Jacquelyn!!! You are a MODEL!!!!!!

Can you believe these portraits were taken in a BATHROOM!?

And to the gorgeous Olbrich Botanical Gardens we go!!

Love this one!!

Just gorgeous, you two!! I can’t imagine a more perfect location for these portraits!!

The Madison Club is such a gorgeous event venue in + of itself, but to top it all off, it has amazing views of the city AND lake!!!

Call me biased, but I LOVE how they used their engagement photos as reception decor!!!

Does anybody else love the walls in this space as much as me!?!

I MUST give a shout out to these INCREDIBLE vendors!!
