Here are some pictures from my wedding over the weekend. The ceremony was at the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The (amazing) reception was at the MONONA TERRACE. The after party was at a few places downtown.
First, THANK YOUs:
Many thanks to my wonderful friend, Judge Jim Troupis for performing the beautiful ceremony. Thank you to Justice David Prosser for helping us w/court access. Love and gratitude to the OUTSTANDING team (Micayla Zapata, especially!) at Monona Terrace (hands down, the BEST venue for a wedding in the state, possibly the whole midwest!). Thank you Rachel Doty Designs for the fall floral fantasy you created for our wedding! Thank you as well to the creative cake geniuses at Rolling Pin Bake Shop in Fitchburg! Much thanks for the beautiful design and creation by the amazing Deborah Olson, who created my incredible wedding hat! Big thanks to Austin Schultz, from Jukebox Bandstand for rocking out the reception! A debt of gratitude as well to Amy Rose Acker, our sign language translator for the ceremony. Special thanks to Rep. Sam Kerkman for letting us stage in her office. Thank you to my super pal, Brian Schimming for being our ceremony director! And of course, thank you to my fantastic friends and family in our bridal party!
I highly recommend that you all make an effort to marry the love of your life!
I'll up load some more pictures when I get our professional photos back...including some of the gorgeous venue all decorated. But for now, here you go!
