Madison Wisconsin Backyard Wedding
Lindsey and Erika planned a relaxed Wisconsin backyard wedding with some of their favorite people. Their families walked them down the aisle while their dog was their assistant! They wanted a casual wedding day that was filled with memories! They sure delivered! Their intimate wedding ended under the stars with great conversation!
When we talked about their day, they mentioned another of our favorite backyard weddings we shot this year – Maggie & Jacks! When we arrived, we were welcomed with open arms and two happy dogs! We fell in love with all the humans and fur babes!
Lindsey’s brother was the officiant for their ceremony. Of course, I adore it when couples bring their families into their day! Family friends also made the floral arrangements and set the table for dinner! All beautiful coordinated by Erika’s sister!
After the ceremony and family photos, we headed to their favorite dog park area for pictures of just them two and their pup!
Let’s get to know these two amazing woman!
Their proposal story?
We went out camping at a state park in NC in June. So many mosquitos. Ninety degrees in the tent. I proposed while she built a fire. We ended up sleeping in the car that night. It was so hot.
