Josh + Valerie | Married | An Eau Claire Country Club Wedding.

September 8, 2014

You are about to embark on a romantic adventure with one of the sweetest couples we have ever met : ) Josh + Valerie are a match made in heaven–fun-loving, kind, driven, + passionate about life, their friends + family, + of course, each other : )

Their day was simple + elegant–married at the same church Valerie’s parents were married at 32 years ago with a reception to follow at the beautiful Eau Claire Golf + Country Club. A simply elegant affair with the focus being their two lives finally becoming one : ) Valerie was absolutely stunning with her floral lace dress + perfectly crafted top bun, + it was pretty obvious throughout the day (well, to me at least) that Josh could not keep his eyes off of her!!! They shared quiet giggles during the ceremony, songs + laughter in the limo, + lots of sweet kisses at sunset : )

The reception was filled with incredible stories about the two of them–both individually + together–and all the guests were both laughing + crying at some point during the evening. The chocolate torte was to die for + glasses clinked long after the sun set. May the following images tell the story of their fairy tale day : ) Sit back, relax, + ENJOY the Masons!!!! -M

Oh, + P.S. I know there are a lot of portraits … but I just couldn’t help myself!! ; )

Valerie’s dress was so unique + so her!! I’ve loved her style from the moment I met her!!

Valerie’s getting ready shots are just so perfect!! We had such an amazing location with the most beautiful natural light + some gorgeous girls who could not wait to get the day going!!

I mean … unreal!! So gorgeous, Valerie!!

Love this moment. These two had such a special bond : )

I didn’t know it was possible for a bridal party to be SO good-looking!! Gosh you girls!!

Nothing like a sister <3

This hat belonged to Josh’s grandfather : )

And they’re MARRIED!!!

The photo on the left was taken of Valerie’s parents when they were married at this same church in 1982. Valerie wanted to get the same picture of her + Josh … how beautiful is that?! Such a testament to V’s incredible personality : ) I only hope this becomes something that is carried on for generations to come in their family!!

Love this one of you guys!!!

That love : )

She. Is. A. Model.

A favorite for sure!!

And then we rode in the party limo!!!

… and their favorite song came on the radio : P

Another favorite : ) : )

Congratulations, Masons!! We love you two!!

    Ohmygosh! Absolutely impeccable photography! (I’m picky….luv your work.) And such beautiful and photogenic families. Was brought to tears seeing Maureen help Josh with his boutinnere and later with her hand on his arm at the front of church and so many other fleeting expressions between people. The flawless beauty of Valerie and Josh. Exquisite. You captured the best of everyone!
    Congratulations Josh and Valerie!
