Carson & Alexandra | A Gray & Teal Summer Wedding at Pope Farm Conservancy in Madison, Wisconsin.

July 6, 2016

The sweetness of the wedding on the blog today is almost too good to be true … but it’s true, SO true, + I cannot wait for you to experience the love that Carson + Alexandra share as we relive their day through some of our favorite photos in this post! This couple is a match made in Heaven — an orchestration by God that is SO clear, pure, + encouraging!! I just cannot TELL you how excited I am that these two are finally husband + wife!!

We had another INCREDIBLE weekend for a wedding + the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for Carson + Alexandra : ) It really doesn’t get much better than 70’s + partly-cloudy all day long! Caleb + I had such a fun day spending time with not only Carson + Alexandra, but also their bridal party!! Because everything went so smoothly throughout the day, we had the chance to really take our time, slow down, + even just hang around chatting + enjoying the beautiful weather with the bridal party!! These eight are such good friends + supporters of Carson + Alexandra, + it’s always SO encouraging to see a community of friends that is truly kind, selfless, + equally as excited for the bride + groom to get married as they are (okay, maybe not EQUALLY, but you get the idea ; ))!! Additionally, both sets of parents were just RADIATING with joy + pride all throughout the day at the marriage of their children. I had the chance to talk with Alexandra’s dad a bit more than the others, + it was just the sweetest hearing him talk about how wonderful of a daughter she had always been — easy to raise, such a joy to them as parents, SO compassionate, + all topped off with a million-dollar-smile : )

Carson’s reaction was PRICELESS as Alexandra came down the aisle + that same pride of such an incredible woman was shown yet again (Alexandra, you really are something special!!) : ) For photos, these two took us to a new location in Madison that we have never shot at before + we were in for the BEST surprise! Pope Farms is a GORGEOUS conservancy just five minutes from where the reception took place, + I’m convinced Caleb + I could have shot these two here for hours + hours + hours! We will definitely be back! Their portrait time was my favorite hour of the whole day : ) Carson + Alexandra had some time alone to just connect + take in the fact that they were finally HUSBAND + WIFE … and we got to photograph it … with PERFECT scenery as the backdrop! What a day : )

Enjoy some of our favorites from Carson + Alexandra’s wedding … I’m so excited to introduce you to the brand new KONKOL family!! : ) : )

You were the most beautiful bride, Alexandra!! I know we told you a million times on the day, but I just can’t help myself one more time!!! : )

Gorgeous girls, gorgeous blooms!!!

Looking good, Carson!! : )

A FAVORITE from the day!!!

Okay, ANOTHER favorite!!! : )

Alexandra!! That smile!!! : ) : )

I wasn’t kidding about the endless (stunning) backdrops at Pope Farms!!!

The framing of that magical tree, though!! SO perfect!!!

Alexandra’s parents gave the new couple their first family Bible at the reception! It was such a special moment!!

As always, a HUGE thank you to their wedding day vendors!
