It all started that morning at Spencer Lake Christian Camp in Waupaca, Wisconsin. Amy and Tony wanted their engagement photos done here a year ago, and I loved how they turned out, so we were all three thrilled for the wedding! When I first showed up, it was pouring down rain. Okay, to put it in perspective – it was like a 100% chance of rain, and the whole reason Amy wanted this wedding at Spencer Lake was because of the outdoor location over looking the entire lake (talk about stunning views!) Her bridesmaids reassured her, they are up to anything!

They decided to push the ceremony a little later to see if they rain would die off, and they decided they were just going to do it outside anyway. Literally moments before the ceremony it stopped raining! Like, literally not drizzle or anything. We were all so so excited because of how beautiful it was outside! It wasn’t too hot or too cold… well you get the picture 😉 

The ceremony went as planned, and oh was it just beautiful. Tony and Amy wrote their vows, and everyone laughed as the officiant reminded Amy that Tony “loves” when she leaves the lights on in the house always when she leaves. ( I remember this part oh so well, because I do the same thing!) 

The entire bridal party killed it during the photo time, and the lake defiantly did justice for them! It was so so worth all the rain earlier! You couldn’t even tell it had rained!

We ended the reception at Oakwood Resort out in Wild Rose, and finished the night out strong. What a sweet sweet ending to a perfect day it was! Thank you Amy and Tony for being so so cute, and playing it so cool while it was pouring before your wedding! It is good luck to rain on a wedding day! 🙂
