Laura and Connor held a Myrick Park wedding in La Crosse Wisconsin. The nature center provided the perfect backdrop for their fall wedding.
The day started with getting ready at The Radisson along the river in downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin. The couple was so smart in booking a conference room because it provided plenty of space (crucial these days in hosting a wedding during the Covid pandemic).
We then took the couple to the bridge adjacent to International Friendship Gardens where they had their first look. It is the place where the two took their first selfie together – which they recreated on my phone!
Although cloudy (and rainy!) by the end of the evening, the sun provided us some glow during the day to complete the group portraits and it really helped to highlight the beautiful colors that were still present at Myrick Park.
Laura and Connor provided everything possible to help keep their guests safe – including custom face masks (which was nice that everyone was coordinated in all of the photos), plenty of hand sanitizer, and color coded wrist bands to help folks know how much distance you’d prefer they keep. The couple even used hand sanitizer between each and every person during their receiving line!
For favors, which also paired as place cards, Laura and Connor gave each guest a little jar of the maple syrup the two of them tapped earlier in the year. PS, it is VERY tasty!
Fun fact about Laura’s dress (which I was OBSESSED with, one of my favorites for sure), she had her seamstress add the sheer panel and buttons up the back. It was the perfect addition to a low cut back dress – something to consider if you have a similar style.
Congratulations to Connor and Laura. There were so many amazing moments throughout the day, and I had a really hard time narrowing down while choosing sneak peeks, but definitely make sure to peek at the photo of Laura coming down the aisle with her dad and smiling at her mom.
