I cannot believe it’s finally here but today’s post truly wraps up the very last of our 2018 wedding season! Noah and Sam, high school sweethearts of eight (almost nine!) years ended our season on such a special note. We are SO thankful that they chose use to document their day that has been so long in the making. It was one full of so many happy tears, so much joy, and a familiarity between family and friends that created a celebration that felt like one big, happy family. I won’t forget the moment from behind my camera as I watched both Noah and Sam’s parents walk down the aisle together — four wide, all arms linked, and the biggest smiles on their faces. They were just BEAMING with pride that their kids were finally husband and wife and they were officially family : )
The day started with the girls getting ready in Sam’s hometown of Plain and the boys getting ready at Noah’s family home in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Spirits were full of excitement and anticipation … and both Noah and Sam were just SO anxious to see one another : ) As they got ready, snow fell softly outside and it really was such a magical morning!
The ceremony was held at the church where these two grew up going and helped formulate the individuals and couple they are today. It was so special that the Father who married knew both families so well and was able to sincerely share stories and his experience of knowing Noah and Sam. Lots of happy tears were shed throughout so many moments of the ceremony and it ended with JOY and these two finally became husband and wife!
Photographing Noah, Sam and their bridal party was such a treat. We know Noah’s family from photographing his brother’s wedding so the group felt familiar (the theme of this wedding!) and we had such a blast with them. On top of it all, Daffodil Parker put together the most stunning bouquets for the bridesmaids and I was in heaven capturing all the floral! Sam’s vision of reds and burgundies and pinks came together just perfectly.
To end the night, everyone celebrated at a new venue in the Madison area, The Loft at 132, where guests enjoyed and amazing dinner by Upstairs Downstairs Catering, toasted the couple with some amazing (and hilarious!) speeches, and danced the night away. We even snuck on the roof for a few shots of Noah and Sam under the hanging string lights : )
I am super excited to share some of our favorites from Noah and Sam’s day! We are so thankful for you two and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you <3 Congratulations again to the brand new Mr. & Mrs. Baryenbruch!!!!!
A huge thank you to Noah & Sam’s wedding day team!
