Adam + Callie | Madison, WI Wedding | So Them.

June 16, 2014

In college, I lived in a big white house on the corner of Jefferson + Garfield with nine other girls. We called it the White House : ) Some of the most wonderful memories of my life were created in that house + I am so thankful for my time with those women + in that place!!

Besides us nine girls, there was (kind of) one more roommate. His name was Adam : ) Coincidently, Adam lived in a house with 26 other guys—it was called the MOB, or Mansion of Brothers ; )–and I think coming to the White House was probably a nice escape from the sweaty, dirty, man-ness of the MOB … you get what I’m saying?! Hehe : ) Well, Adam (yes, the-groom-in-this-post-Adam), became one of my closest guy friends from college + to this day remains just such a good friend + man of God that I truly admire + respect!! His former roommate + best man couldn’t have said it better during his toast when he said, “I don’t think I’ve ever heard Adam say a bad word about anyone … and that must explain why I’ve never heard anyone say a bad word about Adam.” 

Well, into the story comes Callie : ) Ironically enough, Callie was not was one of the nine girls living in the White House, so when Adam began pursuing + dating Callie, you can just about imagine how excited + giddy all of us became to meet this special girl that had entered the life of our–basically–brother : ) And man oh man, there could not have been a better match made in Heaven. These two are simply perfect for each other + through the process of them dating, getting engaged, + now being MARRIED (!!!), it has been such a joy getting to know + spend time with Callie. She is truly one of the most confident (in a REALLY good way–she knows who she is + is totally comfortable in her own skin–in who God has made her uniquely to be!!), composed, + creative individuals I have ever met! I think the photos do a great job of showcasing Callie’s personality + style incorporated all throughout the wedding : ) 

Adam + Callie’s day was not about showing off or busy, stressful timelines but rather about the ENJOYMENT of one another, gathering with their closest family + friends, + most importantly to them, a celebration of the love story God had written for their relationship, lives, + marriage : ) We truly, deeply love you two, so much, + we are filled with anticipation at the thought of all that is in store for your new little family in Arizona. Thank you for letting us celebrate so closely with you on such a very special day!! You guys were so calm + collected, filled with deep joy, + just plain FUN : ) To Adam + Callie, + everyone stopping by to see their photos, ENJOY!!! Cheers to a fabulous week : ) -M

I was slightly obsessed with Callie’s details … like especially those shoes + earrings!!! ; ) 

All the bouquets were handmade by Callie!!

I had never seen a brooch bouquet in real life until this wedding!!

Yep, mom had to individually fasten every single button on the dress!! ( …and ensue jokes about Adam getting if off at the end of the night… ) hehe ; )!!


Caleb’s angle … soooo good : )

He did a 360 degree walk around ; ) She looked SOO stunning!!

These girls rocked the model pose!!

Callie …

I cannot tell you how many people asked us if we had “tried the cheesecake yet because it was to die for!!” Great choice of dessert, you two!!!

Presenting Mr. + Mrs. Vail!!

Now, we normally don’t take pictures of the food, but I had to document this for future brides because I thought it was such a good idea: a burger bar!!

Caleb always makes friends when we’re testing the lighting for the reception … ; )

    I had to do a double take when I saw the picture of Adam seeing Called for the first time when I realized this was Adam Vail! I went to high school with him and was friends with the whole boys volleyball team so naturally friends with him. Im so happy to read, or see in this case, that he’s married! Great photos!
