Allison + Alec | Backyard DIY Wedding in Wisconsin Rapids | Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Allison and Alec's wedding in her parents' backyard in Wisconsin Rapids, WI this summer was one I won't soon forget because when your childhood best friend's little sister gets married, you don't even hesitate when she asks you to photograph their engagement photos and wedding.

He asked me to marry him (again)!!!

You guys. YOU GUYS! I have to share this story of Rob proposing to me on Friday, September 1st. 

Over the weekend, I was able to visit with a lot of Rob's family at a little reunion his parents were having in Madison. There were family members from both Oregon and Colorado in town for the week and they are just like family to me. I was so excited to spend the afternoon with them, and they did not disappoint! 

But before everyone actually arrived at Rob's parents' house, we had planned to head downtown to get some food at this delicious taco place called Tex Tubbs Taco Palace. I could eat their vegan nachos every day and not get sick of it! Rob mentioned he wanted to visit the Union right along lake Mendota before we had lunch since neither of us had been there since before we moved to Oregon back in 2014. Things had changed quite a bit structurally and it was exciting to see how much Madison had grown since we left.

Presley + Jordan | Plover, Wisconsin Wedding at Woodlands Church | Northern Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Presley was one of the girls in my close circle of friends in junior high and high school, so when she told me she was getting married and wanted me as her photographer, I literally jumped up and down while trying to write her a message back (picture me holding my phone and freaking out around the house as I'm attempting to type!). Her wedding with Jordan at the Woodlands Church in Plover last fall was SO thoughtful and sweet.
