The one thing that I just can’t stop thinking about when I look back at Jack and Olivia’s day is the support. The truly INCREDIBLE and AWESOME love and support that surrounded these two all day long. Bridesmaids who wouldn’t even let Olivia get a glass of water for herself but insisted on waiting on her hand-and-foot all day long. Parents leading prayers in preparation for a sacred mass ahead. Custom Snapchat filters for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding day that included baby photos of Jack and Olivia IN the filter itself (don’t ask me how but it was SO cool and ADORABLE!!). The biggest, biggest hugs from bridal party members (many of who were siblings) after the pronouncement of husband and wife. Guests who were, quite honestly, the loudest cheering and most EXCITED guests I have ever witnessed at a reception. Love and support — all day long.
It was the perfect day for a wedding and I know that Jack and Olivia were so thankful for a beautiful, Wisconsin summer day. After a wonderful morning of getting ready and chatting, we headed to the church so that Jack and Olivia could pray together (without seeing each other!) before the ceremony. When I saw Caleb for the first time, I asked, “How’d it go?!” — since he is always with the guys getting ready and I am with the girls. He immediately responded, “Maison, he is SO excited to see her.” : )
When Jack finally got to see Olivia coming down the aisle, there were definitely tears. Happy ones : ) Olivia’s dad looked SO proud as he gave his daughter away to her soon-to-be husband and his toast later in the evening reflected that same emotion I saw at the alter — absolute respect for and confidence in the man that his daughter had chosen to be her husband. More love, more support.
During photos, we had a BLAST with the bridal party, everyone so kind and FUNNY. Both Jack and Olivia’s brothers are a HOOT and kept us laughing all afternoon!! I adored the bridesmaids dresses and loved that they were something different than the normal but still timeless and classy. The bouquets by Kirstie of KP Designs looked just PERFECT with the dresses, too! As we kept saying all day long, everything came together seamlessly and the entire day went off without a hitch.
I am super excited to share some of our favorites from Jack and Olivia’s day with you — so ENJOY!! Congratulations again, Mr. and Mrs. Batzner! We love you guys!!! <3
