Intimate Madison Wedding

Marissa and Brad are the kinds of people you feel like you've known forever. They invited me to their home for their engagement session with their french bulldog (cue freakout mode) and immediately offered a glass of wine. How did they know?! Marissa and Brad met while working at Ralph Lauren in Los Angeles and eventually ventured their way back to Madison, Wisconsin, where Brad grew up.

The sense of style these two have, combined with their incredible personalities, made me repeatedly question how on earth I got so lucky to get connected with them. I remember initially talking to Marissa and Brad during our consult and they said that the most important part about their wedding was simply being surrounded by their closest friends and family in an intimate setting. The love from their friends and family was so evident as many of the guests flew to Wisconsin to witness them celebrate their vows. And if I'm being honest, we left that evening catching Instagram handles from dozens of their guests because we wanted to keep up with them long after the wedding! This wedding was so sweet & we felt like we were a part of their own tribe.
