Months ago, I met Isaiah and Rachel for the very first time at their engagement session here in Waupaca. The only thing I kept thinking was, “this is what young love looks like” These two were just head over heals for one another. Rachel is so soft and sweet and Isaiah is patient and kind and you can tell he respects Rachel SO much. This to me means so so much! <3 Their engagement session was so much fun so I knew their wedding day was one to look forward to!

Finally June 22nd came and as we drove to The Barn at Harvest Moon Pond which is right outside of Madison Wisconsin and I told Sarah that this was going to be such a beautiful day, and that I really hoped there would be a willow tree! If you follow me on instagram, you know as soon as we got there I almost died because the ceremony was RIGHT under a huge willow tree! Ah! This place was GORGEOUS. Left and right and everywhere I looked there wasn’t a single place that wasn’t picture worthy. This was my kind of Barn Venue!

I walked into see Rachel and as I assumed she was just sitting ever so sweetly getting her hair done. She smiled and gave me a big hug and I assured her this would be the most perfect day of her life. She was so calm, cool and collected. Soon after details, she got her dress on surrounded by her sister and maid of honor, Hannah and her mother. They soaked up the moment and then we ran outside for some bride and bridesmaid photos!

The ceremony came and went, and let me tell you it was nothing short of emotional. During their vows, Rachel brought us all to tears as she mentioned she isn’t just “saying her vows as promises because she knows she won’t always fulfill them” But she said she will strive her best every. single. day. to be Isaiah’s dream wife and to take care of him. *cue all the tears*

What a perfect day this was and seriously they even catered fazolis for dinner! YUM.

Thank you Isaiah and Rachel for allowing me to be a part of your perfect day. You two are so precious and I wish the best in life for you both.
