Ben & Chelsea | A Private Residence Wedding in Oconomowoc
Ben & Chelsea’s backyard wedding at their parents home in Oconomowoc is what dreams are made of!!! I am so excited to share this beautiful wedding with you all today!
The morning started off with Chelsea getting ready at the Delafield Hotel — one of my favorite places for brides to slip into their wedding gowns! There were so many emotions flowing through the room that morning and Chelsea beamed with excitement as she put on her finishing touches. Once she was ready, Chelsea shared a “first look” moment with her bridesmaids and flower girl and they all had the sweetest reaction, gasping as they saw how stunning she looked in her wedding dress (one of my favorite photos from the day)!!! The rest of our morning was spent documenting the sweet relationships between Chelsea + her bridesmaids & Ben + his groomsmen. The entire wedding party was SO kind, welcoming, and genuinely excited for their friends to get married!
One of my FAVORITE moments throughout the day came immediately after the ceremony. Ben & Chelsea had just shared their first kiss and walked back down the aisle together (hand in hand, as they were all day together!) when Ben turned around, wrapped Chelsea up in his arms and proclaimed, “Can you believe it?! We did it babe! We did it! We’re married! I’m so lucky!” but the part that really got me was how Ben kept repeating those lines ALL night… he was so overjoyed to finally be married to his best friend! There was so much pure happiness radiating from this couple that it was truly contagious to everyone around them!
Ben & Chelsea, you guys are amazing. Thank you for asking me to document such an important day and treating me like your best friend throughout it all <3 I can’t wait to see what life has in store for you both! Xo
