Kelsey and Dom were married June 23rd 2018 in Madison Wisconsin. This was such a fabulous wedding!! Beau met up with Kelsey and Dom the night before the wedding at the AC Hotel Downtown Madison for the wonderful rehearsal dinner. We love the rooftop deck with the view of the capitol there at the AC Hotel. There was a view of the beautiful sunset from the deck to end the evening.
The next morning the bride and groom got ready separately at the AC Hotel. Dom with his groomsmen and Kelsey with her bridesmaids… they were having a great time together. Kelsey shared a first look with her father and then she was off to the campus for a first look with her groom. They toured around the campus for locations that were meaningful to them, being that they went to the University of Wisconsin Madison.
They took the trolley to the church to say their vows and made it official, they are now husband and wife! Now it was time to celebrate!! The wedding party hopped back on the trolley and went to Camp Randall for a few photos and then off to the reception at Bishops Bay Country Club on Lake Mendota. This was our fist time photographing a wedding at Bishops Bay and it was amazing! This location has it all… what a beautiful lakefront property for an unforgettable wedding celebration! Cherry Blossom Events (Sarah Sarbacker) really made this evening spectacular with all the work they put into the stylizing the wedding. The attention to detail was spot on! Just when we were taking it all in with the beauty of everything there was a surprise visit from Bucky the Badger and the UW Madison Marching Band!! They really got the party started and everyone was dancing and laughing.
After the guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the lakefront lawn, they had more to enjoy in the tent. There was a grand march complete with Bucky and then all of the UW Madison Alumni took a photo with Bucky as well, there were 100+ UW Madison Alumni attending this wedding. The dinner and speeches continued and for dessert there was a sweet donut buffet and barista making espresso drinks to keep the energy going. The bride and groom shared a first dance as newlyweds under the chandeliers of the big white tent… then the bride had her father-daughter dance with a fun choreographed ending! The dance floor was packed with this energetic group. It was truly an unforgettable evening!! We are so happy for you Kelsey and Dom!! Thank you so much for having us as your wedding photography team. ~Bethany
