Betty & Mat | You are my Everything | Brighton Acres, Oshkosh, WI
It’s the middle of September and the perfect time for fall weddings! The crisp morning air and cool chill of autumn nipping at your face. Nope! We got 80 degrees of humidity and it was a blast! Mat & Betty have a relationship that is so endearing. They were completely comfortable around each other and you could tell they were meant to be. They held their wedding at Brighton Acres in Oshkosh and it was a beautiful rustic venue. The barn with natural light peeking through the boards, the willow tree dancing in the breeze, and the cloth draping down the ceiling of the reception hall made for a beautiful wedding. Throughout the day, whenever Betty had the slightest look of worry on her face, all she needed was one word from Mat and her smile returned. That’s true love.
After a quick first look, we got them and the bridal party together for some photos before all the family and friends arrived. Funny enough, most the family was already there. Betty’s bridesmaids consisted of all her and sisters and her sister-in-law to be. How often do you have all sisters in your bridal party?! With the girls looking cute and the guys looking cool you know you’re going to get fun shots!
The ceremony was definitely a teary one. Betty’s mom suffered a stroke earlier this year and they were not sure if she would be able to walk Betty down the aisle. You can never underestimate a mother’s love and strength though. Betty’s mom made sure that her daughter’s day would be everything she wished for. She stood up, walked Betty down the aisle to Mat, and tearfully gave them both her blessings. I’m not crying, you’re crying! Ok, fine we were all crying.
After the ceremony, we took family portraits while the guests relaxed and awaited reception. With most of the photos taken care of in the morning the bridal party set off join them. The rest of the night was filled with music and fun. The dance floor was never empty. We stole Betty & Mat away for a few sunset and night time photos before heading out for the night.
Betty and Mat, thank you so much for choosing us to photograph your wedding day. We feel so honored to have captured all these beautiful memories for you.
