It’s been four days and I STILL cannot get over how incredible this day was! I just loved my time with Melissa and Nick (do I always get the best couples or what!!) and celebrating with them and their friends/family brought me so much joy. We started our day at the AC Hotel which, in my opinion, has one of the best views of the Capitol. Talk about the best backdrop imaginable for your getting ready photos and first look! We then headed to Bishops Bay Country Club for the rest of the day’s festivities.

Nick and Melissa got married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Bishops Bay that overlooked Lake Mendota and boasted a magical silhouette of the Capitol on the horizon. Sunborn Gardens totally transformed the reception tent with draping greenery and florals galore!  There were many heartfelt speeches, a choreographed first dance, live band, and even a mobile ice cream cart!! It was truly an unparalleled celebration for the sweetest, most genuine and excited-to-be-married couple!

Thank you, Nick and Melissa, for picking me to be the one to walk alongside you throughout your engagement and on your wedding day! I treasure the friendship we have and know that your marriage will be filled with tons of laughs and adventure. I look forward to seeing where it takes you! Without further ado- meet the Gillings!
