Emily + Spencer ~ Madison Children’s Museum Wedding ~ Madison Wedding Photography

I’m not sure I can fully explain my love for Emily and Spencer and their families… these people are amazing people!! Emily is one of THE SWEETEST people I’ve ever met, Spencer is honest in a way most people aren’t anymore (which is refreshing!) and has such a kind heart, and together their love is absolutely contagious. They had me literally sobbing through their ceremony (along with every person in attendance) and pinching myself throughout the night – feeling so blessed to be a part of their wedding day!

Emily & Spencer ~ Thank you SO MUCH for treating us like dear old friends of yours, and taking such good care of us on your big day! We had the best time just hanging out with you and your families all day. It was a perfectly relaxed and beautiful celebration that was so you… we loved it. I know you have a wonderful life ahead of you guys full of lots of laughter, love, and puppy cuddles (the best kind)!! Thank you again for letting us document this chapter of your love story. It was an absolute honor. xoxoxo ~ Christy & James


I loved that Emily and Spencer both got ready at home that day. It was such a relaxed and wonderful atmosphere with just their immediate families surrounding them…

Such a sweet First Look in front of their home!

Ah!!! Such a cutie!

Then we all headed to the Madison Children’s Museum for pre-ceremony cocktails on the rooftop! It was the PERFECT day for it…

And then they each read their vows that they separately wrote – and everybody cried happy tears (including me) – lots of happy tears…


I couldn’t get over the stunning florals by Daffodil Parker!

Then we headed back up to the roof for them to enjoy some quiet moments as the sun faded over Madison…

Then the party really got started! There was no shortage of fun things to do at the Children’s Museum!!

Congratulations you two!!!! XOXOXO!
