Photographing Sarah and Brian’s wedding was a true joy. They were married in the beautiful Pres House on the campus of University of Wisconsin, Madison, with the reception at the University Club directly across from the Pres House. After the ceremony we ventured out to the Olbrich Gardens and got some great shots of the couple. We also stopped by Ella’s Deli for a quick ride on the carousel and some photos. I have come to realize (through all of the wedding I have photographed in Madison) Ella’s is a local landmark! How fun would it be to grow up with memories of the carousel and all the fun gadgets inside!?
Sarah had some great details mixed into the wedding. The wedding signs were handmade by a family member, the favors were handmade jelly (made by Sarah’s grandmother), and it was fantastic! Sarah also included two locket size photos of her grandparents that had passed away on her bouquet. I also loved the table cards! Each table was a city from Wisconsin (where Sarah is from) or California (where Brian is from) that has a special place in their hearts or in their relationship. Along with the name of the city, the guests at that table were able to read an explanation of why that city was important. What a great idea!
