Ryan & Tess | A Madison Wedding at Noah’s Event Venue
As wedding season winds down, I could not think of a better way to end the year than with Ryan & Tess’s wedding at Noah’s Event Venue in Madison. As we arrived in the morning and walked through the doors, Tess came running out to greet us with tears in her eyes and wrapped us up in the biggest hug! It was in that very second I knew the day was going to be magical.
It’s not often that the October forecast calls for 100% rain — all day long. However, what’s even more rare is the incredible attitude that Tess had from the very start. Over and over again, Tess would say, “I’m not worried, I get to marry my guy today,” which brought such joy to my soul! This couple is the real deal and THIS is what marriage is about!!! Ryan and Tess didn’t dwell on the forecast or any other small details but instead they embraced every minute of bliss associated with marrying their best friend. And do you know what? The rain stopped. I simply could not believe the miracle that was taking place right before my eyes. From the moment we stepped outside for groomsmen photos to the very last bride & groom portrait, there was nothing more than a light mist!!!
One of the most unique parts of this wedding day was the balloon release Ryan & Tess planned immediately after the ceremony. I’ve truly come to love “ceremony exits” — there is something SO energizing to see all of the wedding guests gather around and cheer as the brand new Mr & Mrs walk by! I’ve seen bubble exits, confetti poppers, and petal tossing but releasing balloons was a first for me! The balloon release was so meaningful too because Tess’s parents did the exact same exit after their ceremony, nearly 30 years ago! Such an amazing little tradition to start.
Ryan & Tess, I positively admire you as individuals and as a couple. Thank you for always exhibiting such kindness and for showing the world that wedding days are about more than the bells & whistles — they’re about creating a beautiful marriage. Xo
What a handsome groom!!!
