Today’s tattooed bride and groom is Hannah and Rob. They both met each other online which, even though they both only joined it because it was free, Hannah said that she found to learn so much more about Rob because of only being able to communicate via phone after the first initial messages. Their day was beautifully captured by Milwaukee based fine art wedding photographer McKenna Marie.
Really, the entirety of the day was a true representation to who we are as a couple. We made a point of keeping the cost of everything under $2,000 and successfully did so! We wanted our guests to be as comfortable as possible and encouraged them to arrive on their motorcycles and in their hot rods. Our relationship has been built on motorcycles, hot rods, and love. We wanted that to be an element to the day. We did not serve a meal which in turn saved on cost and instead opted for a cocktail hour with a nacho bar since Rob could basically live off them. We couldn’t believe how many people raved about how delicious they were.
We hung lights everywhere we could in the barn to give it a rustic, romantic, cozy vibe. The feel was truly that perfect summer night.
Today I get to share with you a favourite wedding of mine from Wisconsin wedding photographer Megan Yanz Photography. Megan sent me Chrissy & Jesse’s wedding and I wanted it to be the first of 2015 due to it being so awesome! Chrissy’s tattoos look gorgeous and she did her hair and make-up herself. I love her hairpiece!
We met in our church youth group when we were both in middle school, and we became close friends in early high school. However, we didn’t start dating until the summer after I graduated from high school and Jesse finished his first year of college. We were on a church trip in a tiny town called Axtel, Nebraska, and Jesse’s sister, Kelly, was my roommate. She told me that Jesse had a crush on me, but he was never going to do anything about it. So one night, I just kissed him. Two days later he asked me to be his girlfriend when I came to visit him at work. The rest is history.
It was incredible and so, so special to have so many of our friends and family with us on our big day. Plus, my little brother, Cody, gave a hilarious one word speech. He stood up, buttoned a button on his tux, fixed his collar, and then just said, “Hodor” into the microphone (Game of Thrones fans will get this reference). It was so funny, and I will never forget it.
