We had such a beautiful day with Daniel and Kory! Something very special about this day to us were all the stops we made along the way to visit some of the people held most dear to the couple’s hearts. To top it all off, we got to capture EACH of these incredible moments!
We started the day off at Posh Beauty Bar in Stoughton, WI for hair and makeup and from there traveled over to Daniel’s childhood home to get dressed for the occasion!
Something really heartfelt we like to include during our sessions are first looks. Kory and Daniel had their first look at McCarthy Park. This is where the couple gets to see each other for the first time prior to the ceremony. First looks allow for an emotional release point and a moment for the couple to just take in each other and appreciate the moment. Such a special experience it was to watch Kory turn around and see Daniel for the first time in her dress!
Our day continued as we headed over to a nursing home to visit Daniel’s grandmother and went to Kory’s parents’ house. ALL of this took place before we even got to the ceremony!
The couple eloped at a quaint little spot at Mud Lake in McFarland, WI. The lake off in the distance made the setting so incredibly beautiful and serene. To make their day complete, Daniel and Kory invited some of their close friends and family to the ceremony. And of course, pets were included! The day ended with a reception at Oakstone, a bar and grill located in Cottage Grove. Here, some tasty appetizers were enjoyed during the festivities along with cake, of course!
