One thing I remember very well about this wedding day is it seemed to fall on one of the hottest Madison summer days. The heat index was so high. My husband and I were debating in the car if this (most adorable) little chapel off James Madison Park, Gates of Heaven, had air conditioning or not. You see, I was about 4 1/2 weeks away from my due date of my third child. It did indeed have air conditioning (of which I was so thankful). Regardless of the heat, Adam and Colleens wedding day was so so wonderful and one of our favorites of the year because we just think the world of these two.
But also because, they chose to see one another throughout the morning instead of waiting until the bride walked down the aisle (in fact, they walked down the aisle together), they had their siblings (all sisters) as their bridal party, and because even in the heat and sweating like crazy they chose to take some time together for photos between the ceremony and reception. Jordan and I knew that it was going to be hot and also that their ceremony was ending early enough that it would still be very bright out at the point of pictures of just the two of them. So the week before we took our girls down to James Madison Park and then looked around for great locations within walking distance to take photographs. Luckily we came across the amazing Period Garden Park right up the street which was perfect. After we walked right on over to Coopers Tavern for the reception.
Adam and Colleen - we felt honored to be the ones to document your wedding day! We wish you many happy and healthy years together.
