Sarah & Jon were married on the second to last Saturday in August, and a hot muggy one it was. The air was thick with love and humidity and it felt that it would rain at any second, but not a single drop fell as Sarah & Jon celebrated their sweet Fanny Hill Dinner Theater wedding in Eau Claire, WI.
It’s always so amazing to arrive at a venue and greet the bride and groom on their wedding day – Sarah & Jon had envisioned a low key day to celebrate with their family & friends – and when I knocked on Sarah’s door I was welcomed by Sarah, her sister and Sarah’s sweet daughter. Sarah had requested a photo of her daughter in her wedding dress before she put zipped it up for the day and it was one of the most lovely moments I have ever captured between a mother and a daughter and I hope one day the photographs are passed on to Sarah’s little girl on her big day. Such a lovely idea!
Sarah & Jon chose to see each other before their ceremony at Fanny Hill in one of the beautiful gardens! I love when couples choose to see each other before all of the guests arrive and before they walk down the aisle. I feel like sometimes it takes a bit of the big pressure off a bride & groom’s shoulders and also lets them get to their guests quicker after the ceremony – and it was a good thing these two chose that option.. because right before Sarah walked down the aisle her dress tore and had to be mended for about an hour before she could get to her guests immediately after the ceremony. The stars aligned on that one, folks!
A lovely day with folks who traveled to see these two wed – it makes my heart so happy to share these images with you! Congratulations, Sarah & Jon!
