Green Bay Botanical Gardens Fall Wedding: Charlotte and Jeremy Say I Do
Mother nature had saved up her energy and waited to release an explosion of color for Charlotte and Jeremy‘s wedding day. The first weekend in October proved to be stunning, crisp, and just slightly overcast; it was the perfect fall day for Charlotte and Jeremy to say “I do.”
As the ladies begin to dress at Green Bay Botanical Gardens, Charlotte laughed and admitted she was a little nervous. She was helped into her stunning Mori Lee gown by her mom and sisters. Flanked on each side by her favorite ladies, the girls clutched their stunning fall bouquets and escorted Charlotte to the beautiful garden ceremony site where the incredible couple would say, “I do.”
Jeremy wasn’t feeling any nervousness as he waited for his bride to walk down the aisle. Walking arm in arm with her parents, Charlotte was an elegant vision, a sight that Jeremy eagerly be held. In a beautiful ceremony that took place against one of the most stunning backdrops at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens, Charlotte and Jeremy shared touching handwritten vows. Neither had told the other one what they would be writing about, but their vows were a true testament to the depth, strength, and significance of their relationship. Both Charlotte and Jeremy mentioned the goats that may or may not be bought on their farm, and Charlotte’s inability to reach the top shelf when she’s putting dishes away. They were such simple and slightly humorous statements, and yet it was so moving how two people could be so in sync to mention two very specific habits and thoughts in each of their handwritten vows. As they were announced husband and wife, Jeremy and Charlotte wrapped each other up in a deep, loving first kiss.
During their ceremony, Charlotte and Jeremy wrote heartfelt thank you’s to their parents and step parents, commenting on how they made them the people that they are today and how they have affected their lives. It was clear that they have the same love for the people in their wedding party as well. Charlotte and Jeremy had such an exuberant and amazing group of individuals next to their sides as their bridesmaids and groomsmen. These wonderful human beings laughed together, shared stories together, and many of them have known the newlyweds for years. I think this is a sign of the amount of care and priority that Charlotte and Jeremy put into the relationships they have with the people around them.
Charlotte and Jeremy took precious time out of their wedding day to spend some quiet one on one time together roaming the gardens and loving on one another. After six years together, they have an easy, effortless way about them, and yet they both cherish one another and know how unique and significant their relationship is. They are beautiful compliments to one another, bringing out the best of each other and taking it to a higher level.
During the reception at tundra Lodge, the honored guests that gave speeches about Charlotte and Jeremy all mentioned how these two are a perfect pair and they highlight each other’s best qualities. Whether working side-by-side on the farm, or racing RC cars together, or simply enjoying a weekend away in the camper, these two know what it means to live life to the fullest with your best friend at your side. As they swayed in each others arms for their first dance, the adoring onlookers got a glimpse of what Charlotte and Jeremy‘s future would hold: love, lots of love, trust, and respect for the person whose eyes they were gazing into.
These two know what it means to make a relationship a priority and have it blossom into the best thing that ever happens to them. Charlotte and Jeremy, you have such an amazing future ahead of you, and I hope that the years ahead are filled with adventure, friendship, and endless amounts of love. May you always face life’s challenges hand-in-hand, and know that you have the support of a loving, incredible life partner by your side. Your relationship is incredibly inspiring, and I can’t thank you enough for choosing me to help share your love story and document everything that makes the two of you amazing. Cheers to you!
