Downtown Madison is such a lovely location for a winter wedding. Why? Because even the lack of greenery and warmth can’t stop the Capitol from being its beautiful self. Emma & Ian got married in November downtown at the Madison Capitol Building, among friends & family that had flown in from everywhere. Barely a handful were from Wisconsin, but everyone had a glorious day celebrating the bride & groom! Their reception at Bellini Italian Restaurant was gorgeous, as well. Their bold wedding colors really brightened up the historic-style space. Starting with her bright shoes!!
I loved the bodice of Emma’s dress. So beaded and beautiful!
The bride was surrounded by friendship. LOVE.
These little moments are my favorite things to shoot:
I adore weddings in the beautiful Senate Parlor.
Aaaaah that dome!
I quickly caught this passionate kiss just post-ceremony. I love love love these little moments!
Weren’t these colors gorgeous?? Orange orchids really brightened up the day!
These GIANT floral pieces really made an impact- it’s tough to fill such a grand space!
These personalized bracelets were one of the prettiest bridesmaid gifts I’ve seen, and they matched the dresses perfectly.
EVERY time I shoot at the Capitol, my challenge to myself is to find a new angle. It’s getting tough after 4 years of shooting in Madison, but I still find something new at most of my shoots!
COLORS. I love color…
Carl’s Cake!! My favorite!!
I thought that this was one of the most creative guest book ideas I’ve seen in a long time! What do you think?
To Emma & Ian- I hope you are enjoying your beautiful album! We had such a lovely day with you guys. Thank you for brightening up my winter season!
