This is a truly beautiful wedding captured by Alex & Natalie Nelson Photography and comes all the way from Madison, Wisconsin in the USA. It is a day bursting with personal touches and bright colours. I especially love Kari’s purple shoes. And the tulips for bridemaid’s bouquets. And the umbrella shot. And the tulips on the cake….the list goes on!
The winning shot has got to be the first kiss…of the flower girl and page boy!
Some words on the couple from the photgraphers, “Kari and Cullen and undergraduates at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Cullen is a U.S. Marine in the NROTC program and both of them are studying to be teachers. Cullen also works as a fitness coach and Kari is the Middleton High School Gymnastics Coach. When they’re not busy studying for exams or working, they can be found on the many different trails around Madison biking or running, attending Brewers and Badger games or cooking up a delicious and nutritious meal. They were married on Easter weekend and we were lucky to have simply beautiful weather with only a few drops of rain - just enough to wip out a few fun umbrella shots. They also did a First Look - which was beautiful overlooking Lake Monona, standing on the famous Frank Lloyd Wright building - The Monona Terrace.
For their first date…”We sat front row, right behind home plate, at the Brewer vs. Cardinal game opening weekend at Miller Park (no lie!). It was incredible! We got lost looking for a place to go to for supper before the game, and ended up at a typical small town supper club for Friday night fish fry, which was awesome!”
Spring has definitely been springing in England this week, which made me think of sourcing these Easter/Spring pictures for a wedding.
I think any April wedding can use touches of Easter as inspiration for the day. Personally, I love the idea of sending children (and adults) on an easter egg hunt…
