Jamie and Allison were married today!
These two met at a party near July 4th, so this holiday has always been special to them, and they picked a fantastically fun place to get married. On summer holiday weekends, Hudson, Wisconsin is always packed with people, and the St Croix River is full of boats…on the 4th of July, the place is party central, which fit this group of friends well. We were warned going into this wedding that the wedding party would be a little crazy, and we had such a great time photographing all their antics.
Allison chose a nautical theme for the wedding design. Navy, cream, and green with crisp modern lines paired with a little whimsy worked beautifully together, and Allison thought of every little detail, even down to the getting ready outfits.
The day was bright and sunny, and downtown Hudson was full of fun and color. These two love to have fun, so portraits at the 4th of July carnival were a no brainer. Jamie and Allison got a lot of attention when we shot these images!
The ceremony took place at the Hudson House Grand Hotel. These two darlings stole the show!
After the ceremony, we hopped on a party bus and headed to one of our secret favorite photo locations. Everyone rocked the portraits.
Apple Blossom Floral did such a fantastic job with the bouquets. They were so lush!
CHECK OUT this portrait! One of my most favorite EVER!
The romantic images were a little challenging as the entire bus full of friends were cat calling Jamie and Allison. But they were pros and kissed away as we took their portraits.
This party bus was truly a PART-AY.
After cruising Hudson, we boarded the Grand Duchess, a beautiful ship part of the Afton Hudson Cruise Line fleet. Guests mingled and basked in the sun on the deck. The cake (by Cakes by Jan), floral and invitation suite were full of detail! The blue sky, cool breezes and festive atmosphere made this cruise so fun!
Lots of sun means we get to play with sunflare in our images. With the boat’s reflective surfaces, we enjoyed finding creative angles.
What a crazy group!
The ships captain put us in the perfect spot to take advantage of the sunset…it was a perfect evening.
Jamie and Allison, thank you so much for having us be a part of your day! Enjoy your sneak peek!!!
