Fabien + Ariel Wedding – Menomonie, WI

On August 15, 2017 by admin

As I interacted with Fabien and Ariel the days leading up to their wedding, they kept me smiling. We talked about their day and schedule a handful of times, and the couple lit up as they talked about waiting to see each other until the ceremony. Their schedule carved out time immediately following the ceremony for the two of them to share a few intimate minutes before heading into their photos together where they could “makeout and Fabien can touch my butt and stuff”, as I believe Ariel put it ;). The day went seemingly seamlessly, as we kept the couple apart leading up to the ceremony, documenting Ariel and her girls, and Fabien and his guys (and some rifles they found, which was TOO hilarious and made for some pretty cool photos). By the ceremony, the sky was beautiful and overcast. I remember a LOT of beautiful embraces taking place during the ceremony – Fabien hugging his mom after escorting her down the aisle, and Ariel and her dad sharing a tearful hug before he gave his daughter away, just to name a couple. And the couple looked blissful and shy, as they shared their first glance during Ariel’s walk down the aisle.

Then the celebration really began when Fabien and Ariel skipped down the aisle after sealing their vows with a smooch. The love and joy Fabien, Ariel, and their family and friends shared was so beautiful and fun to document. Here’s a brief look into their beautiful day. Congrats, Dubbe’s!
