Emmaly and Brent: Madison, WI Wedding: Part 1

‘As most great Midwestern love stories go, they met because of an ice fishing trip,’ said the best man during a heartfelt, and albeit funny, speech at Emmaly and Brent’s reception a few weeks ago.   While I’m not sure if there’s statistical analysis to prove his claim one way or another, I’m sure there are plenty of couples that would agree.  However, the best part of Emmaly and Brent’s love story is that Brent never actually made it to a frozen lake that weekend.  Instead, Brent and his friends ventured out to a Madison watering hole, where Emmaly, consequently, met up with the group, having a mutual friend-of-a-friend in common.  Wouldn’t you know it?  A little bit of harmless banter and BAM!  Smitten.  The rest, they say, is history.

Emmaly and I have been friends for more years than I care to divulge – having worked together in college at the local Supper Club (how’s that for Midwestern-ness for ya?)  I taught her everything she knows about schlepping prime rib and the art of White Merlot.  For real – all me.  But I digress.  When Emmaly asked me to photograph her wedding, I was humbled, a little nervous, and super excited, because I knew this wedding was going to be fabulous!

The festivities took place at Inn on the Park, which is a bea-u-ti-ful hotel with amazing views of Wisconsin’s capitol in Madison, WI.  The entire wedding party was up for anything, and since Emmaly works for the hotel, I had *almost* free reign of the place.   Of course, I took full advantage and *may* have pulled furniture in from the down the hall, to the roof and back, etc.  At any rate, it was all worth it. I took so many shots that I just loooove, I’ve deemed it necessary to split the wedding day into two posts.  So, sit back and enjoy – then come back in a few days and check out a few more!

Oh, and lastly, I thought I’d try something new.  If at least 25 people comment directly to this post, I’ll be sending Brent and Emmaly a little gift as a token of my appreciation!

The first look was done on the roof of the hotel – just a small perk of working for the hotel you hold your wedding at…

    Amber, you captured the beginning of “Happily Ever After” for Em & Brent perfectly.

  7. darlene ramos says:

    These photographs are memorable to the extreme! Such imaginative beauty—-in the words of the speechless: Wowie wow!

  8. Very refreshing indeed! Creative and artistic. I can’t tell you the last time I pulled out my wedding album –24 years ago. Emmaly, you have been gifted some great pieces of artwork that will last you a lifetime. Take some of those creative photo’s, get a cool frame, matte and hang them throughout your house. You will always be reminded of your special day–everyday.

    The beauty already existed and Amber captured it perfectly–with a twist. If you still need to follow up with thank you cards for some special guests–the Tulip photo or the heel with the ring would be a great little gift for your guests to frame.

    Congratulations and be blessed.

  17. cindi allen says:

    I have to say there were so many unbelievable photographs that it is difficult for me to pick one. The one of Emmaly in the veil is beautiful but the ring on the heel and the shoes lined up as well as the corsages were so unique. What an amazing photographer. I truly am sorry I could not make it to celebrate the beauty and joy of this event. My love and best wishes to the bride and groom.

  28. Emmaly says:

    There was never a doubt in my mind that you would absolutely amaze me with your talent….and I was right. These are simply gorgeous. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or friend to take part in our day :) Thanks Amber!

    • cindi allen says:

      I am truly amazed at the beauty that the photographer captured. Her creativity with the ring on the heel of the shoe was unique. Emmaly is truly so beautiful and the picture of her in her veil took my breath away. The sexy but demure photos of her lying on the couch were gorgeous. What a blessing to have such great friends because you can see the love in every photograph. I am so sorry I could not make the wedding but these pictures are the next best thing to being there. Thank you.
