Adelina and Lis's wedding was filled with many wonderful moments as they celebrated their big day. I met Adelina + Lis at their hotel as they got ready. I photographed details which the beautiful bride carefully curated, including the bracelet that her new mother-in-law wore on her wedding day. I made sure to capture all the laughs as well as the tender hugs they shared throughout their day.
The family gathered and headed to the ceremony site - the Wisconsin State Capital! Everyone enjoyed the beautiful architecture inside the capital, and gathered to take selfies as they waited for the judge to arrive. Adelina + Lis selected an area where they where joined by their immediate family, and proceeded with the ceremony. Again, no moment was short of laughter -- Adelina's brother/"best man" gave Lis the wedding band only to realize that he was holding the wrong band. The family had a great laugh which I'm sure is something they often enjoy while in each others company. After sealing their love with a kiss, we stepped outside and took some lovely family portraits.
As the family left we took this time to capture couple portraits around Madison. We took pictures around the Capital making sure to photograph the marvelous stone building. We made great use of the marble lines as we took pictures inside of the building. We also visited the Memorial Union to enjoy the warm waves of Lake Mendota. We ended couple portraits at the beautiful Observatory Drive Scenic Overlook.
We later joined Adelina + Lis's family at the wedding reception venue, The Edgewater. The couple was welcomed with cheers as they made their entrance. And shortly after, the women gathered to dance to a beautiful Albanian song as they surrounded Adelina. Friends and family continued to arrive and congratulate Adelina + Lis on their wedding day.
Congrats again, Adelina + Lis!
