A Thanksgiving wedding in Madison

When you think of Thanksgiving, you usually think of turkey, food coma, football and shopping (at least, that’s what I typically think of). Emily and Lee, on the other hand, think of throwing one helluva wedding party. For their special day, they chose to have the ceremony at Monona Terrace and the reception at the Concourse Hotel. In between, we had some time to stop by the Overture Center for some pictures. The whole day went by about as smoothly as I’ve ever seen and was fun the whole time.

One thing I love about weddings is hearing all the stories that build up to the wedding itself. For Emily and Lee, there was a story behind everything — from the story of how they met, to their wedding rings, to the stories that will be told about their wedding day (ask Lee about tying a bow tie). Every story comes with a backdrop of love and friendship. These are the stories of our lives and I’m honored that I can be there to capture them.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that they has the Chris Sarlas Orchestra perform during the reception. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this band at a previous wedding and they are absolutely fabulous. If you ever have the opportunity to see them perform, you will be in for a treat.
