It’s no secret, I ADORE Haley and Ryan! Their Fall Engagement Session at Bairds Creek last year was one of my favorites. These two are so easy going and full of kindness that you just want to be in their presence! So when their wedding day finally arrived, I was beyond giddy to photograph this next step in their lifelong journey together!
On a rainy day in August, Haley and Ryan said “I do” in the Kress Oval Garden at Green Bay Botanical Garden, where Haley works. Haley spends her days at work coordinating other brides’ weddings and finally it was her chance to experience this beautiful moment. She looked absolutely stunning in her fitted wedding dress adorned with the prettiest of jewel beadwork. Not only was this day special because it was their wedding, it was also Ryan’s golden birthday! What a great way to spend a birthday! Though it rained all day (even during their outdoor ceremony,) Haley and Ryan didn’t mind. They were just happy to be together and to begin their marriage!
Congratulations Haley and Ryan! I cannot wait to see all the wonderful things the future brings you two!
So obsessed with Haley’s dress! Gorgeous!
Every bride needs a “Today is my day, tomorrow can be yours” mug!
Father/daughter first look! So sweet!
Rain or shine, Botanical Garden is still as lovely as ever!
Haley and Ryan performed a tree planting ceremony. Their parents dumped in dirt from their homes and Haley and Ryan added dirt from their new home to symbolize where they came from and where they are going. No matter what happens, they know they have a strong foundation to stand on. So personal and special!
These ladies are so unbelievably kind and beautiful! Love bridal parties like this!
Ahhh! They are stunning together!
It rained during their entire wedding and through portraits. But Haley and Ryan were troopers!
I absolutely adore photographing weddings at Oneida Country Club!
So obsessed with these tall centerpieces from Ebb & Flow Flowers!
Happy golden birthday, Ryan!!
Before the first dances, Haley snuck in a dance with her grandfather. Heart melting!!
Haley’s grandparents have been married for over 60 years!
Thanks to all the amazing wedding vendors that helped make Haley & Ryan’s big day wonderful!
