Chey + Anthony Wedding – Arcadia, Wisconsin

On October 7, 2017 by admin

A rainy wedding day isn’t what most couples would classify as ideal weather conditions – ESPECIALLY when a couple is planning an outdoor ceremony. It rained intermittently throughout Chey and Anthony’s day, but it didn’t keep us from venturing outdoors for photos on Chey’s stunning family farm. The wedding party and family were more than willing (or put on brave faces, I couldn’t quite tell ;))  to partake in rainy, outdoor photos and the drizzle certainly didn’t dampen the joy of the couple’s pending union. 

By the time the ceremony rolled around, several hundred guests huddled together under multicolored umbrellas on the wooden benches (made by the bride’s stepdad) overlooking the luscious Wisconsin fields. The groom walked his mom down the aisle and stood beneath a homemade birch awning, waiting to catch his first glimpse of his stunning wife to be. As Chey walked down the aisle, escorted by both her parents, it began to rain harder than it had all day, adding some extra sparkle and romantic conditions to the moment (even if it was cold). 

I loved witnessing the genuine warmth Chey and Anthony shared as they exchanged vows, shared a foot-popping first kiss, and spent the majority of their afternoon hand-in-hand, with smiles from ear-to-ear. This couple is certainly loved (and extremely lovable), as evidenced by their guests’ willingness to sit in the rain and dance their Sunday night away celebrating their marriage! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Swift – I love you dearly!
