Reece & Heather | A Luxe Navy & Beige Garden Wedding in Waupaca, Wisconsin.

June 29, 2016

Everything about Reece + Heather’s day was perfect — and I’m not just using that word to use that word. I’m going to credit 99% of the perfection to Heather’s planning — the smooth timeline, the amount of time we had for everything (during the “Getting Ready” portion of the day, the bridesmaids sat together, drank mimosas, + chatted about how calm + enjoyable the morning was for a good half hour after hair + make up were done + before Heather even got into her dress!), the complete lack of chaos since she allotted plenty of time for all aspects of the day + everyone knew where they needed to be when, etc … etc. It was one of the most enjoyable days we have been a part of … ever!! Everyone was in high spirits, SO joyful, + just having so much FUN : ) The 1% of perfection I can’t credit to Heather was the weather. Yes, it was hot(!), but we had cloud coverage when needed + there was even one spot that I wanted to shoot at but it would have only been possible if the day ended up being cloudy … and the clouds preceding the evening storm came out just MINUTES before arriving to the spot, so we were able to shoot there!! It was all just too good to be true … but it was true : ) As vendors, we kept talking amongst ourselves saying how we wanted to shoot Reece + Heather’s wedding every weekend!!

Heather’s vision for her day was “garden” — and if you think I love flowers, then you must meet this girl! We are kindred spirits : ) She made a GREAT decision in hiring the team at Buds n’ Bloom to do her flowers for the day … just WAIT until you see their amazing creations!! Partnered together with the planning team from Sash & Bow, + we had ourselves one STUNNING reception space (that literally smelled like a greenhouse)!! When Heather’s dad walked into the room for a sneak peek before everyone arrived to the reception, the sheer beauty of it all (+ seeing his baby girl so, SO happy) brought him to uncontrollable tears : ) He was just the sweetest all day long!

Reece + Heather were nothing but OVER THE MOON with joy the entire day. Their love for one another, gratefulness to family + friends, + excitement for the celebration of the day + their marriage was absolutely bursting from the seams!! It was contagious + SO fun to be around : ) I keep talking about it, but the energy of the day was something I won’t forget + I truly credit it to these two. They were feeling emotions + joy that I can only hope every couple gets to experience on their wedding day : ) Reece is generally a more introverted person + seeing him LIGHT UP with joy, emotion, + love at so many different moments of the day was really moving : ) Heather’s natural happiness was only magnified + again, it was just so dynamic + special to be a part of : )

I’m going to let the photos do the rest of the talking — be warned, there are a LOT!! I hope they bring you even a sliver of the joy we experienced being a part of this day : ) R+C — we LOVE you guys so, SO much!! You guys are driven, passionate, KIND, + gifted. We are so excited to see the ways you are going to use all of your blessings to make the world around you a better place than you found it : ) Enjoy some of our favorites from your day!!!

Buds n’ Bloom did an UNBELIEVABLE job with the flowers!! If you think Heather’s bouquet is gorgeous, just wait until you see the reception tent!!

So handsome, Reece!!!!

Heather … I simply have no words for how stunning you were!!!

The girls got ready at Heather’s parent’s house, which provided some stunning backdrops for these GORGEOUS ladies!!
