Ellie & Andrew are high school sweethearts and they also happen to be one of the most inspiring examples of LOVE that we can think of. Although they've been together for so many years, you would think they had just started dating by the way they affectionately embrace and support each other. It is clear that they always have one another in their thoughts and go out of the way to do little things to make each other smile. We know this because they had us smiling all day long with how in love and adorable they were together!! Not only that, but goodness are they ever a gorgeous new Mr and Mrs? We could have photographed them all weekend and felt very lucky to have the pleasure of doing so, including their Rehearsal Dinner! :)
With the help of Randy from Evolutions in Design and Ellie's Mom, Chris, she dreamed up one of the most beautiful celebrations we have ever been a part of!! The Rothschild Pavilion is already an amazing wedding venue (one of our favorite in Wausau!!), but when Randy and his team got their hands on it, they transformed it into a stunning, romantic, elegant celebration for the new Dr & Mrs Welles to enjoy with all 300+ of their friends & family! Fabric draping through the rustic beams, a living room set-up by the fireplace & blooms in every direction, as well as personal touches like signature cocktails, traditional Norwegian cakes and keys for their guests to share their secrets to a happy marriage are just a few of the things that made their wedding so lovely.
Beyond the VERY pretty decor, Ellie & Andrew's wedding day was SO emotional and heartfelt. The love of their friends & family was felt by everyone and there wasn't a dry eye in the house during the toasts (us included)! We adore these two and their families and couldn't be more thankful to have been chosen to document such a beautiful celebration of love for Ellie & Andrew!!
Love, Kelsy & Butch
