elliott and kayla : a fantastic wisconsin wedding

Probably 2 of the CUTEST people on the planet right here! If you’ve ever seen Enchanted (ya know, that great Disney movie where the cartoon princess becomes a “real life” princess in New York and falls in love with a handsome New Yorker) well…it has been said, by many people, that Elliott and Kayla should have starred in that movie! Kayla is unbelievably musically talented and Elliott may resemble a handsome prince that sweeps Kayla off her feet everything they are in the same room! :)

And their wedding was nothing short of fabulous! :) They combined their love of drama, theatre and music with their affection towards the outdoors! With an ultra cute white steeple chapel for the ceremony, the Rolling Ridges Girl Scout camp was a perfect backdrop for hugs and dinner with friends and family! And their details. Gosh, were they stunning with every shade of purple! :) Kayla dreamed up the most FANTASTIC dessert table that guests were greeted with as they entered the reception and everyone danced the night away with a smile on their face!

Isn’t this shade of purple just fantastic? ANNNNNDDD I almost stole a pair of the bridesmaid’s ultra cute purple rocket dog flats except none of them wore my size! :) And the guys looked as handsome as ever in their varying shades of brown suits and mis-matched purple ties! :)

Kayla was BEAMING when she came down the isle. I bet if her Dad would have been up for it she could have skipped, ran, or cartwheeled down the isle! She was hands-down SO SO SO excited to marry her best friend! :)

I TOLD YOU the details at the reception were to die for! :)

He sang to her the entire time they danced…..awe.

And HOLY MOLY were the speeches AMAZING at the reception……many of their college friends got up and sang a song from RENT (and gosh, they busted that out in fabulous harmony)…I am pretty sure the entire room was either in tears or their jaw was on the floor. I just LOVE this sequence of Kayla and Elliott being surprised by this little performance! :) Talk about an inspirational group of friends….. :)
