Starting this blog post off, i’m just sitting and thinking about all the times before the wedding I met with Alexis and Jacob. Alexis, over the past few months we had met so many times (and snap chatted!) and I loved getting to know who she was as a person! She is so kind, and genuine, and inviting. I’m so so glad she had found Jacob (and Jacob was so lucky to have found her!) But, after months of knowing how excited she was for certain times of her wedding day, I received a call the day before her big day, telling me news no one ever wants to, or even imagines of hearing. The wedding day jitters, i’m sure just faltered, kinda were just paused for a moment in my mind and my heart ached for her. I knew that the next day, this wedding would just show so much more emotion, sadness, heartache, BUT would also include so much MORE love, joy, happiness – and it did.

The next day, it started off as a beautiful sunny (perfect weather!) day! It was an outdoor wedding at Doty Park in Appleton and it was absolutely perfect for a wedding outside! Alexis was so excited to marry Jacob and they were both just glowing the whole day! Alexis and her bridesmaids that morning went and got fresh flowers from the fresh market, which really added a gorgeous touch during the ceremony and detail shots! 

Everything was so so simple, but I could just tell everyone just loved being with each other, and it was just a sweet time of capturing so much happiness with their friends and family! 

Alexis and Jacob can be described with two words – FUN and IN LOVE! I’m pretty sure anyone who knows these two, KNOW how much fun they are and how madly in love they are for one another! Jacob is so so good to Alexis! Yes, of course he picks at her, but he definantely knows how to make her laugh! For instance, during her engagement session, he literally attacked her neck and said she wasn’t giving a real smile! I loved it so much! 

The whole day flowed so well, her vendors did an exquisite job on all the details, and the bridal party had everyone laughing all night! 😉 

Alexis and Jacob, thank you for being so classy and so kind. I really feel like I have known you guys forever, and I seriously hope to keep in touch! <3 You two are so precious!
