bailey & clayton. the wedding.

get ready kids, this is a good one.


bailey (who is a DEAR friend) and clayton are MARRIED!

these two, along with their sweet pup atlas, and a whole lovely group of friends & family celebrated IN STYLE at a delightful ski lodge in wisconsin. filled to the brim with charming backdrops, amazing colors and quite possibly the happiest bride we’ve ever documented, it was such a fun day! bailey & clayton have actually been married for two years (they eloped back in 2015) and celebrated with an outdoor ceremony exactly two years later in front of the ones they love most against a late summer sky. they opted for a first look, so we had not one, but two good chunks of time to get portraits (such an ideal thing for us since the grounds of the lodge were so lovely!).

bailey & clayton are big animal lovers…they have two cats & a sweet dog that they share their life with, so when bailey said that atlas was going to be IN the wedding, we were obviously SUPER EXCITED! atlas was with bailey while she got her hair & make-up done, waited patiently as they had a first look, sat like a CHAMP during the ceremony, and was overall just a happy ball of pup.

it was such a merry & cheerful weekend…and we’re so happy for our friends. this kind of love is what it’s all about. we also wanted to say a special “hello!” & “thank you!” to both sides of bailey & clayton’s families…they were so wonderfully welcoming and it was honestly such a joy to be around so many gracious people.

grab a cup of whatever you drink, get comfy and enjoy these sparkling images.

lots of love & happiness you guys, now & always.

what you can’t see in the image below is that atlas is sitting in the bathtub, keeping a close eye on his mom while she gets ready. just about melted my heart. sweet pup.

gotta love a field with yellow flowers. 🙂

not like this place could get any better they have a really old covered bridge and the light was on-point. we finished up there and then headed on in to the reception!

bailey is an AMAZING pastry chef and made her cake and all of the other YUMMY desserts!
