Lauren and Ben | Romantic Wisconsin Wedding | Celebration at the Gables

I’m so excited to share Lauren and Ben’s beautiful wedding day! I’ve know Lauren for a while but I’ve loved getting to know Ben over the last year. They compliment each other perfectly.

Their wedding took place at Celebration at the Gables in Turtle Lake, Wisconsin. It was my first time at this venue and it’s absolutely beautiful! And that’s even after having been hit by a tornado 2 weeks before Lauren and Ben’s wedding! Gege and her crew, along with help from the community, worked really hard to get everything in perfect shape for the wedding. It was hard to believe that just days earlier half the roof was destroyed, many trees were snapped and the doors on one wall of the barn are yet to be found. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Gege and her staff are.

While we didn’t have any tornadoes the day of the wedding, we had a whole array of weather. The morning started really hot and humid. The wedding party and families were so awesome through pictures! And they looked stunning! Then as the ceremony started we had a few clouds and a light breeze with a storm way off to the West. We even had a clap of thunder during the vows, which led Ben to say he would love Lauren even through thunder and lightning. And it also gave us a small rainbow as the ceremony ended. Then when we finished pictures after the ceremony, about 2 minutes later, the clouds let down a torrential downpour while we all ate and enjoyed wonderful toasts in the barn. And then, I seriously couldn’t have wished for better, we had about 10 minutes when the sun came out and gave us the most beautiful sunset! Honestly, the whole day was amazing!

Lauren and Ben, I wish you so much love and happiness, and a very long life together! XOXO
