Ryan and Carlene: Married May 16, 2009 {Wisconsin Wedding Photography}

CEDARBURG, Wis: Pull up a chair, blog readers…this is going to be a long one. In fact, I’m going to try and keep the words to a minimum since I have so many images I want to share from Carlene and Ryan’s perfect day. Of course, I say I’m not going to say much, but sometimes I can’t help it. Especially when the subject is people I LOVE so much!

So, here we go…

This is Carlene’s dad as he got his first look at the last of his daughters to be married off. Now, we all know I have a thing for dads. That soft spot grows when it comes to dads with multiple girls. Warren has three girls. Confession: I plan to ask him to adopt me too. A girl can always use another dad, right?

Carlene’s mom is also very high on the list of people I love. I know few people who are more organized than Connie. And she definitely passed those organization skills on to her daughters. I think the day was so laid back in large part due to the fact that the Schmidt girls were in control of all the details.

I am notorious for taking pictures of people taking pictures. This one made me wonder what they were giggling about!

Carlene was so anxious to get the ceremony started. Here she is in the last moments with her dad before heading down the aisle. It was pretty tough to peek through that tiny crack in the door!

Inside the church, the crowd was just as excited to get things started. I love this moment Karl captured between the parents of the groom as they waited for Carlene to make her grand entrance.

During the ceremony, Carlene’s nephew Charlie kept some of the guests entertained with his adorable smile.

Speaking of smiles, this moment right after the unity candle lighting was classic. One of the wobbly candles fell over and Carlene’s best attempts to fix it failed. Everyone got a good laugh.

After they were pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds went pew by pew to thank their guests for coming. It was the perfect time for a great big hug from niece Abbey.

You may wonder what Carlene is laughing at. The truth is, there was no funny joke. That laugh is in response to a very pregnant photographer trying to “crouch down” to get a good angle on the bouquet. I was laughing too.

The Kison family farm was the perfect spot for some celebrating and picture taking with the bridal party!

Just a week before their wedding, Ryan lost his grandmother unexpectedly. We stopped at her home to capture her beautiful gardens.

This picture was a special request from the Kison family. That’s their farm in the background! Cool, right?

As guests arrived at the reception, they were greeted by lots of personalized details, including this monogram in the wedding colors!

Another really cool detail: instead of your regular table numbers, each table was numbered with a number important to the couple!

This was totally a first for us: a tractor at the reception. It totally fit right in and provided a great spot for the band to set up for the evening!

In case anyone is wondering: THIS is the way you make your grand entrance to the reception!

Carlene and Ryan, we can’t thank you enough for including us in your special day. We are so happy for you guys to start this new chapter in your lives together. We look forward to seeing you guys soon (like tomorrow) and hearing all about your awesome honeymoon roadtrip!
