I had been looking forward to this wedding since the day Abbie and Joe got engaged! Joe and his family moved in next door to me when he was just 1 year old. So he and his family are very special to me! I had so much fun with these two at their engagement session. Joe met Abbie at Winona State University and now here we are almost 6 years later saying “I do” at LaPointe Events along the Pine Bluff River in Somerset, Wisconsin.
We started the day at the beautiful Hotel Crosby in Stillwater, in their incredible bridal suite. Abbie and her bridesmaids had hair and makeup done by Primped and enjoyed a fun morning getting ready. Abbie had found her dress, designed by Mori Lee, at The Wedding Shoppe and it was so gorgeous!!
The guys arrived at LaPointe Events looking very handsome in their suits from Generation Tux. And the weather could not have been more perfect for their outdoor ceremony. Reverend Amy officiated the beautiful the ceremony and I have never heard more beautiful, handwritten vows, than the ones that Abbie and Joe shared. Let’s just say there were a lot of tears shed!
While all of the details of this day were special, one of the most heartfelt was around Abbie’s beautiful bouquet made by Abloom Events. Abbie’s brother Sam was killed in 2012 while serving in Afghanistan. She had his dog tags wrapped around her bouquet. Several of his friends were in attendance as well, and I know Sam was there in spirit smiling down on Abbie and Joe.
This day was beyond perfect and it was so great seeing so many familiar faces. I can’t wait to watch Abbie and Joe build a life together. They could not be more perfect for each other. Cheers to many, many years of loving memories, Abbie and Joe! XOXO
