Kristi & Derek had a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony at the Unity Christ Center in Eau Claire, WI, and had their reception at the Metropolis Resort. We had been looking forward to this wedding for a long time because Kristi is my cousin, and it’s always a joy to go to weddings with our family. In some ways it made it even more meaningful than usual because we knew so many people and were able to connect again, which is such an important part of the wedding, and it was fun to celebrate with everyone.
Derek & Kristi were truly made for each other, as cheesy as that sounds. Their first date was ice fishing, which they both enjoyed. Derek has been hanging around our family for the last few years and has been dearly in love with Kristi the whole time. It has been great to get to know him at family gatherings and times out on the farm. We even took their engagement photos out on our “home farm”, which has been in our family since our ancestors came over from Norway. It was a joy to finally see them married and tell the story of their wedding day in images.

LOVE this photo of Kristi & Grandma. Warms my heart immensely.
The Metropolis Lobby was a super fun place to take a few photos. Beautiful natural light, and lots of fun architecture.
Me and my handsome little man. Seriously, he melts my heart!
Brandon’s arms were full most of the night dancing with our kids. They had so much fun, but were SO tired by the end of it.
