Back in the summer of 2011, Alyssa and Daniel first met when they started performing together in the troupe, Kids from Wisconsin. Kids from Wisconsin showcases the most talented youth in a full musical revue for all ages, consisting of 20 singers and dancers and a 13- piece show band performing musical productions! As they toured the Midwest together, they grew closer. Soon, they began to date and with each new city and new performance they fell deeper in love.
After four years of dating, Daniel proposed in South Dakota during camping/road trip! He found the perfect spot with the most breathtaking view and insisted on taking a picture of Alyssa. But instead of pulling out a camera, he pulled out a ring and got down on one knee! Alyssa, between smiling so hard and hugging Daniel as tightly as possible, said “YES!”
On a rainy day surrounded by their family and friends, Alyssa and Daniel promised to spend forever together. Every detail and piece of their wedding day was carefully thought out and completely perfect! From the blush bridesmaid dresses and the stunning chandeliers that twinkled during dinner to the delicately beautiful floral arrangements – it was like a wedding pulled straight from a magazine! My absolute favorite details of the day were Alyssa’s Rue De Seine wedding dress paired with a long cathedral veil and her pear-shaped engagement ring! She looked beyond INCREDIBLE!
Congratulations Alyssa & Daniel! Here’s to a lifetime full of wonderful adventures and unconditional love!
How pretty are Alyssa and Daniel’s rings?! I’m still swooning over them!
“Here’s to forever.” Awww!
One last group hug with the girls before the ceremony!!
Alyssa and Daniel wrote their own vows and exchanged them to each other at Cave Point with just their parents as their witnesses. Waves crashed along the shore as they spoke words of everlasting love. So beautiful!
Confetti celebrations!! Woohoo!
Alyssa and her siblings seriously look like models from a J.Crew ad! Stunning, all of them!!
The newlyweds, Mr. & Mrs. Bader!!
Even though it rained all day, we didn’t let that stop us from making AMAZING photos!!
Before the reception, we made a pit stop to see Alyssa and Daniel’s dogs, Maya and Riley!
Oh my goodness, I just cannot get over how GORGEOUS Alyssa and Daniel are!!
Woodwalk Gallery is always so beautiful!
Wow! It felt like a real life fairy tale under that stunning white tent!
First dances are some of my favorite moments!!
As a way of saying “thank you” to her parents, Alyssa sang “Wind Beneath My Wings” to them. Awww!!
