Wild Ridge Golf Course Preppy Rustic Wedding | Eau Claire, WI Wedding Photographer

You guys. This wedding. I would do it over a million times. I mean, I say that a lot but really. I mean it when I say it. Weddings are long days, but at this wedding, when I left the only reason I  even considered leaving was because I was starving and Carly (my assistant/friend) and I needed some french fries. For some reason, I get super thirsty before shoots and really hungry for french fries after. Strangest thing.

Anyway, Megan & Bill captured my heart at their engagement session which involved cocoa and s’mores, and a gigantic fire lit by a torch on Bill’s parents property. I adore these laid back sessions full of personal and unique details, so leaving the day of their e-session made me even more excited for their wedding day.

Megan & Bill also happen to be close friends with previous bride & groom, Clare & Steve, so it was a bit of a reunion of sorts. Megan & Bill went to school together, which is how they met and began dating, and of course fell in love. I’m not sure that “high school sweethearts” really happens in real life all that often anymore, but it makes my heart so happy to know that it does still happen.

With all that said, I hope you enjoy the 60+ images I’ve curated from their gorgeous gallery for you. It was so hard to choose just 60! Enjoy.
