The story of our wedding
It was a cool, but beautiful November day at Chapel of the Archangels in Beaver Dam, WI. Jim and Jimmy at the Chapel accomodated us Friday to let us get set up and have our rehearsal dinner. Lisa and Shelby from Heavenly Creations came Friday night as well and transformed the reception area of the church into a thing of beauty.
Saturday started with a mimosa bar for the ladies and a lot of laughs and emotion as we got ready at the church. We had plenty of space for all of us to get ready.
When the groom and his party arrived we all started photos. The 100+ year old church was a really beautiful backdrop for us to capture the day. Dennis and Jackie from Denmercs Photography showed up right on time and kept us on schedule. They made us feel so comfortable and we couldn't have been happier with the way they treated us. The photos are proof of their skill.
Jim and Jimmy helped us get down the aisle and made sure we had everything we needed. Right after our ceremony they scurried downstiars to make sure that our guests were well attended to for cocktail hour while we wrapped up pictures upstairs.
Our wood flower bouquets were created by Holly's Hobby and she did a fantastic job. She had never used wood flowers before and they were a challenge. The bride hand dyed them all and the Holly put them together int he most creative and beautiful way.
Dinner was provided by family (yes, family. Jim and Jimmy let you bring in whatever vendors you would like as long as they haven't had any issues with them in the past) and Jim jumped in and helped with cleanup efforts to make sure the transition from dinner to party was smooth.
Dessert was amazing. We had cupcakes and a cutting cake from Gigi's cupcakes. They delivered them to us safe and sound. We also had a cookie warmer, so we had a family friend bake cookies ON THE SPOT and put them in a warmer for our guests to enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
The music was good, the drinks were flowing and we really couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!
Sunday morning we had time to get things cleaned up and packed up. As the usual for the entire weekend, Jim and Jimmy were there the whole time. I really cannot rave enough about how amazing of a place Chapel of the Archangels in Beaver Dam is. They truly made us feel special on our wedding day!
