I’m SO excited to share MacKenzi and Ben’s Oneida Country Club wedding! This sweet couple met when they were supposed to be dates for MacKenzi’s sorority date party. Unfortunately, MacKenzi had gotten into trouble and was not allowed to attend the party. Ben was instead paired up with one of Kenzi’s friends and Kenzi had to check in the guests. So Kenzi actually checked Ben and his date in to the date party. They met again after Christmas break at a bar for Kenzi’s friend’s birthday and that is when their relationship really began.
Ben proposed by surprising Kenzi at her cottage in Door County. Kenzi was under the impression that Ben had to work that weekend in Missouri. Kenzi’s family was having family pictures done and when they got back to the cottage there was a bouquet of 100 roses with 100 reasons why Ben loves Kenzi. There were also rose petals leading out the dock. Kenzi had been telling Ben since they met that he should learn how to play the guitar because he has such a good singing voice. So down at the end of the dock he was playing the guitar and playing one of their favorite songs!! He memorized a whole speech and then got down on one knee and asked Kenzi to marry him. Both of their families were waiting at the cottage to celebrate afterwards.
This couple definitely knows how to have fun and is surrounded by the best family members and friends! Both their parents have been married for over 30 years and it was so wonderful to have them involved in this day. It was really important to Kenzi and Ben to give gifts to their parents and I loved capturing those special moments. After a beautiful ceremony and gorgeous photos made at Oneida Country Club, the party really started at the reception. The dance floor was packed as soon as the music started! Friends, parents, even grandparents were busting a move! It was the perfect end to the best wedding day!
Congratulations MacKenzi & Ben! Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness!
Seeing the bride for the first time!
Before their first look, Kenzi and Ben read letters they wrote for each other.
Thanks to all the amazing wedding vendors that helped make MacKenzi & Ben’s big day wonderful!
