Stephanie and Jared’s Wedding Day!

markhawkinsphoto_blog_js001So when you plan your wedding for the first weekend of fall in Wisconsin, you probably donot anticipate 90 degree temps.  But, thankfully, we didn’t spend too much time in the sun, and it turned out to be a really wonderful day.  Stephanie and Jared are bursting with tons of joy and are just plain fun, and you can tell that everyone around them just thinks the world of them.  The ceremony was at the beautiful Prince of Peace with a reception at Oneida Country Club.   The staff at Oneida does weddings with perfection, and they are wonderful to work with.  The club looked amazing with wonderful florals and decor by Buds n’ Blooms. It was decked in wedding whites.  So pretty!   Stephanie and Jared entered their dance on a tandem bicyle with Stephanie smiling from ear to ear.  The bicycle was a wedding gift, and she was dying to try it out.  To top off all the goodness, there was a fantastic fireworks display on the course.  Stephanie and Jared and their guests were chilling on the balcony watching the fireworks (smoking cigars actually) when a terrified turkey flies onto the balcony and causes quite a stir.  To see more of that you will have to check out our instastories @markhawkinsphoto instagram today!  These are the stories that you will never forget from your wedding day!

Also, a few more shout outs…thanks to Extreme Entertainment for making it a great party, Monzu for cake and cupcake deliciousness, and Salon 54 for some gorgeous hair and make up.  Now enough talking!  Here are some pictures from the day…
