This glorious union took place at one of Madison’s most beautiful parks. Olin Turville overlooks Lake Monona and the Capitol and was the perfect venue for this super fun, casual, laid back wedding.


Throw Back Thursday to July 2nd, 2017! Kara and Tony have been friends of mine for a pretty long time. I met them on a kickball team around the vicinity of 10 years ago where we got together weekly and debaucherously (is that a word?) stumbled around bases, chugging PBR and pretended to be good at sports. We were called the Gonads and IT WAS AWESOME. Now that we are all grown up and mature…ish, these two finally decided to tie the knot! Yaaay marriage! And what a day it was!

The theme of their beautiful Olin Turville Park Wedding was fun, casual, simple and laid back.  The ceremony was unique and full of personal touches. There were lovely offerings of cupcakes from Daisy, a fantastically large pig from Stoddard’s and The Milwaukee Buffet full of Ham’s. And I mean Ham’s the beer! There were also many other delicious beverages to choose from including a couple of beautiful signature concoctions from Danielle our favorite bartender/friend 🙂

All of the gorgeous flowers came from the Dane County Farmer’s Market and were designed and arranged by more friends! Nicki and Megan were wonderful and helped out in so many ways! The whole day was perfectly finished off their first dance to an all vinyl DJ, Joe Schleising (another awesome friend) and a vibrant sunset over Lake Monona with the Capitol view.



Couldn’t decide which of these two I liked better…
