Jolene & Paul wedding photographer – Pine Creek & Arcadia WI

June 21, 2008 – This wedding was fun to be a part of as it took place in a small rural farming town of Pine Creek, Wisconsin. It was neat to see the rolling hillsides and farms along the way on such a beautiful summer day. I had shot Jolene & Paul’s engagement portraits earlier this year in April. Its always pretty neat to see a relationship come full circle from an engagement session to the wedding day itself.

The flowers in Jolene’s & bridesmaids’ bouquets helped show the colors of the season…

During the wedding ceremony, the Best Man appeared to have “lost” the rings when asked for them. The groomsman behind him had them, but I think it was a little plan between the two to create some drama for the couple before they exchanged vows…

I finished up with the family photos after the ceremony and then moved on to some time with just Jolene & Paul. This is my favorite time with the bride & groom at all of my weddings…

After that, they headed down to meet their wedding party at Margaret’s, an old tavern that’s apparently been in Pine Creek for years. I snapped a few shots as they walked away and here’s one that’s digitally enhanced…

After a drink, we then made our way to the wedding reception at the Lion’s Pavilion located in Memorial Park in Arcadia, WI. The Lion’s Pavilion was packed full of happy guests and a happy couple as well…

So many smiles were seen at this wedding and it was great to see. I look forward to meeting other happy couple’s in the future and documenting the smiles on their wedding day as their wedding photographer. I wish you both the best, Jolene & Paul, and thank you for having me share your beautiful wedding day!
