Kaylin and Jalen’s outdoor Wisconsin engagement session was my first engagement session post Stay-in-Place order, so it’s only fitting that their wedding was my first full wedding in over six months! After multiple date changes, Kaylin and Jalen were finally able to say “I do” at Mystical Rose Gardens in Baldwin, Wisconsin! Kaylin and Jalen got engaged last Valentine’s Day with a surprise proposal in a St. Paul park near the bluffs, followed by a celebration at Cheesecake Factory! While their wedding plans changed a few times, it all came together beautifully!
Their dusty blue color scheme and the beautiful outdoor garden venue looked like it was plucked straight out of a fairytale – plus, Kaylin entered the ceremony in a horse drawn Cinderella carriage with her hair down in flowing curls and a high-neck, long sleeved lace ballgown dress. This wedding even had some fairy godmothers- well more like family and friends who provided their talents! Kaylin’s aunt did dress alterations, as well as the bridesmaids flowers and hair flowers, a friend did hair and makeup, a friend and family singing during the ceremony, a cousin did the videography, and an uncle officiated!
The reception hall spaced out smaller rectangle guest tables of six to accommodate social distancing. The crisp white chairs and linens had dusty blue table runners and napkins set with gold charger plates and greenery garlands with loose blooms for the centerpieces. Since Kaylin and Jalen love cheesecake and celebrated their engagement with cheesecake, Dorothy Ann Bakery created a beautiful two-tiered cheesecake for them to cut!
My photographer heart was extra happy because these two were so stoked for night portraits that they gave me extra time to get creative with sunset and sparkler shots! It feels so good to photograph a full wedding day again!
