ASHLEY & ADAM | MEMORIAL UNION MADISON WEDDING / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

While planning a February 25th wedding in Madison, one would expect (and hope for) a snowy white dusting throughout the city. Despite the grounds being green just days before, it snowed in time for Ashley & Adam's wedding and could not have been more perfectly white! Their wedding day began at the Mansion Hill Inn, where Ashley & her ladies prepared for the beautiful day ahead. As soon as we arrived we were immediately energized by all of the love & excitement buzzing around their room! The charm of the Inn and abundance of natural light floating into the room was absolutely breathtaking. After sharing a glass of wine with her bridesmaids followed by a few portraits in front of the luxurious hotel, we made our way to the Wisconsin State Capitol so that Ashley could soak in a similar moment with Adam :)

On the third level of the pristine Capitol building, Adam waited for his bride to make her way over to his arms for their first look. Ashley was a radiant beauty as she glided across the marble floor to tap Adam on the shoulder and make her first wedding day memory of his handsome face! Shortly after, Ashley & Adam's ceremony in the Assembly Chamber was especially lovely and filled with so many cute moments between the two of them :)

A&A were more than willing to brave the slightly chilly air to create an unlimited amount of beautiful images with us, which we of course loved! Afterwards,  we headed to Memorial Union for their reception and were smitten over the soft white candlelit feel they brought to the Great Hall. From the romantic floral centerpieces by daffodil*parker to the menus and Ferrero Rocher place cards created by Ashley & Adam, they infused their celebration with so much of themselves... all the way down to a toasty warm signature drink!

The way Adam looks at Ashley and so effortlessly makes her laugh speaks volumes to their relationship. They adore their friends and family as much as they do one another, and since they dated for 6 years before reaching this point it felt like one big family celebrating together!

We are beyond grateful to have been a part of their fairytale wedding day and know that together, Ashley & Adam have found a lifetime of laughter together :) Thank you two SO much!!!

Love | K&B

Heading into the Capitol to see her Groom!

Ashley's Great Grandmother's hankerchief + Grandmother's brooch made such pretty additions to her bouquet
