St Norbert Wedding with Ashley & John
From the very start of our journey together I just adored Ashley + John. I fell in love with not only their love story of how they met in med school and how John proposed during class but I came quickly to adore their personalities. After three engagement sessions and lots of emails over the past year and half I got to know them pretty well :). So the day finally came to celebrate their blissful day, the day that brought us together as friends. It was so very beautiful. You always hope for amazing weather and most of the time you get it and on this day I think they definitely had mother nature on their side.
Ashley + John’s St Norbert Wedding was entirely held on St. Norbert campus grounds in De Pere. The ceremony was held in the St. Joseph’s Church and it was amazing! Their aren’t a lot of churches that impress me but this on did! It was up there as one of the most beautiful churches I’ve been to.
Early on we discussed their timeline and it made a lot of sense for Ashley + John to do a first look so we did just that. It still gets me every time seeing a couple in that moment… seeing his face as he looks at the person who was once a girlfriend, then a fiancé and now becoming his bride, his partner for life. It’s really special to witness and I love everyone firstlook I’ve ever shot. They are each so unique, so special… in everyone some tear, all smile, some literally have their breath taken away, some straight up break down in overwhelming joy. In this case both were just smiling from ear to ear :)! Ashley looked so beautiful in her gorgeous lace dress and Jimmy Choo shoes.
After the first look we were able to bust out all of the images needed of family, wedding party and of course the bride and groom and they were able to just enjoy the rest of their day with friends and family. Which they totally did at the Bemis International Center at St. Norbert. They had one of my personal favorite DJs’ and DJ Shawn got everyone up out of their chairs and the dancing never stopped! From the time the music started til the time I left Ashley + John’s guest kept on danc’n! I even dance for a few with Ashley and John before I headed out. It was such a wonderful day and I’m so very happy for them both! Congrats you too and I look forward to continuing our new friendship xo- laurie marie
