Rachel + Joe

Rachel and Joe showed us that love and happiness can cross over heated sports rivalrys! Their winter wedding was perfect; A bit cold, but that’s what you expect for a Wisconsin wedding in January!

Rachel and Joe: newlyweds with a split household of NFL fandom. We came into a house of Packers fans with our purple blood and quickly learned that any joke would not stand! “Oh you’re a Vikings fan, when do you guys play this weekend?” Point taken – we are not going to delve into what happened Sunday night however 😉

Joe even brought in a life size cut out of Aaron Rodgers…. which made its way onto the dance floor. If the Vikings/Packers rivalry can be overcome, there is nothing these two cannot tackle!

The Masonic Ballroom in Eau Claire is a gorgeous venue on the river with everything you need for your wedding day! Great spaces for both bride & groom to set up for the day, a wonderful lounge space for the couples first look, and a dramatic setting to hold the ceremony. We did attempt to head over to Phoenix Park for some outdoor photos. It was SO cold, but we were able to sneak Rachel and Joe out for a few shots; afterwards the bus driver routed us to a spot with some cover from the wind!

Congrats Rachel and Joe! We wish you both all the best. Enjoy this look into their beautiful wedding from the past weekend!
