I cannot believe it’s here but this is our last wedding of the 2018 busy season! What a way to end it. As we were leaving at the end of the night, saying our goodbye’s to Dan and Cidnee we just had to thank them for such an amazing end to our season. Their day was SO fun, so calm, and they really just loved on us so well. Not a single thing went wrong all day, their bridal party was a blast, and every last detail was absolutely gorgeous. We left feeling FULL to the brim and reminded of how special a career we have … just thankful.
Dan & Cidnee live in Delafield, where they got ready for the day and then also had their ceremony! We spent the morning at the stunning Delafield hotel where the girls got ready and Cidnee got into her beautiful gown. The boys were right across the street, at Dan & Cidnee’s apartment! Before the ceremony, these two met for their first look in front of the Delafield Hotel. I’m pretty sure Cidnee took Dan’s breath away and these two were all smiles for the rest of the day!!
We then headed to St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy, where we did the rest of bridal party and family photos before the ceremony! As we pulled up, Caleb and I were ecstatic to see so much fall color on the grounds! Just wait until you see the photos! Dan & Cidnee’s ceremony was so intimate and sweet, with lots of tears as Cidnee came down the aisle, as her mom and dad gave her away, and as guests extended their hands towards the couple for a blessing at the end of the ceremony <3
The reception to follow at The Legend at Brandybrook was just exquisite. Événement’s design coupled with Impressions by Esther for floral was a truly a match made in heaven! The room twinkled with candlelight as guests entered to find a romantic spaced filled with white tulips and orchids. I especially loved the touch of Dan & Cidnee’s custom wedding logo on the wall above the entrance!
As toasts were made during dinner, I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Dan & Cidnee’s siblings, the Best Men and Maid of Honor, spoke SO highly of the newlyweds and I just LOVED getting to know D&C more as they shared stories and made us fall in love with the couple even more!! The Stray Voltage Band brought the night to a close with their incredible talent and energy! Guests danced the night away and all can agree that it truly was the perfect day!
Loving this rainbow color!!
The prettiest pair!
A very special thank you to Dan & Cidnee’s wedding day team!
