I know I always say I’m super excited to share every wedding on the blog (because I genuinely am!!), but I’m specifically excited about sharing Brendan and Samantha’s day because I feel like, in another life, I would include so many of the same elements that Samantha did in her day into my own! I just LOVE her style!!! From the powder blue bridesmaids dresses to the all white floral, each detail was timelessly chosen and came together to create an absolutely exquisite day for Brendan and Samantha!
These two met during their undergrad at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, so while they no longer live in Madison, getting married here was an absolute must! The couple chose one of Madison’s finest, the Edgewater, to host both their ceremony and reception. Underneath a clear blue sky with Lake Mendota in the background, they became Mr. and Mrs. Smith in front of their closest family and friends. Their ADORABLE Bernese Mountain Dog, Brodie, even walked down the aisle and then laid proudly on the cool cement as he watched his mom and dad become husband and wife : )
Irish touches were woven throughout the ceremony and reception including a traditional piper to play Samantha down the aisle and a special candle lighting ceremony just before dinner. Samantha looked incredible in her Lazaro gown and cathedral veil — she was truly a vision and I know I wasn’t the only person at her wedding to think it ; )!!! It was amazing to see everything Samantha planned come together and I have to give a shout out to her rock star team of vendors for creating such a seamless and stunning day!
Our favorite part of the day, however, was getting to know Brendan and Samantha’s family and friends more. I truly enjoyed every minute I had with the bridesmaids — a group of girls who have known each other for a very long time and care so deeply for one another! They were incredibly fun, so helpful, and gosh, so darn BEAUTIFUL!!! So, without further adieu, lets get to these images! Enjoy some of our favorites and CONGRATULATIONS once again to the brand new Mr. and Mrs. Smith!
The sweetest <3
Love these beautiful girls!!!!
