We talk about love a lot over here. It’s our job and drives our passion for storytelling. Witnessing all types of love between wedding couples teaches us time and time again that every story is unique. Bryce and Andrea are no exception and had us grinning all day long over how sweet they are with each other, and their family and friends.
We say that a lot too… ‘surrounded with love from family and friends.’ And it’s always true. But these two were blanketed in such joy we couldn’t help but dream everyone’s unique story as we watched hugs, smiles and laughter fill the day.
Bryce and Andrea planned for a first look and bridal portraits prior to their ceremony which always make us happy. Heidel House in Green Lake Wisconsin was the perfect backdrop for these two to set eyes on each other for the first time that day. And planning for all of your bridal portraits prior to your ceremony takes the pressure off afterwards to rush from one place to the next.
Their ceremony included heartfelt vows and songs sung by friends who blew us away with their talent. Unique spins on first dances had us smiling from ear to ear and college accapella friends didn’t let the day go by without sharing a few songs together either. There MIGHT be too much love story in this day to share in images but we’re going to try anyways…
