Have you ever met a person that you just love to be around? That is so kind and so thoughtful and such a light? That exude such happiness and laughter that it makes you feel good about yourself? How about when you know more than one of them and they’ve been brought together as a wonderful couple? That folks is Maggie and Doug. I had the honor of photographing their wedding day and it was nothing but amazing. The Inn at the Olde Silk Mill was FILLED with guests that felt the exact same way I do. From their large family, to some long time friends, to their amazingly talented group of theater friends… Without sounding like an Elton John song you could literally…. FEEL THE LOVE that night. (Sorry if the Lion King anthem is in your head now). When I first met with the future Wilder’s, I was in awe of they had up their sleeves. Maggie and Doug put in SO much thought and detail into their big day. I had been excited for months leading up and when the time came it did NOT disappoint. When your career is the theater, you don’t have to look far for people that would help make a large moon for a Photo Booth backdrop, or would hang vintage umbrellas from the ceiling, or would sing at your reception… Do I have your attention now?! I hope you all enjoy this blog post as much as I do! Sara of Wolfcrest Photography was my right hand and did amazing per usual! Maggie and Doug, I wish you nothing but a lifetime of the love, light and laughter you instill in everyone you’re around. So much love to you both.
Maggie designed all her paper goods!
Maggie and her sweet, sweet Mom.
Looking good, sir!
Doug with his lovely mom and niece. So sweet!
Oh, Maggie… Just no words for your beauty.
A little prayer before the ceremony.
How adorable are these three?
MARRIED! If it was appropriate to stand up in church these 2 definitely would’ve had a standing O.
Maggie and Doug requested a ‘Cast Photo’. They nailed it.
And the serious version is even better.
This = Perfection.
When I asked them to walk naturally towards me… this happened. Love them so much haha
Stunning. Just stunning.
Whew. Detail overload about to happen. You’re in for a treat!
Maggie collected antique bottles, tins, etc. from various antique stores. They were perfect!
How amazing is this moon for the photo booth?!
Dr. Erwin gave an amazing speech!
The Maggie and Doug artifacts case!
Even more great toasts!
Maggie’s sister, Emily, surprised her with a short film staring her nieces in Real Housewives fashion. Amazing. And hilarious.
Some of the guests were standing because they were helping the band sing to Doug… flash mob style. This was a surprise Maggie had come up with. It was wonderful!
And just when we thought Dr. Erwin couldn’t top his welcome toast… he did. A prerecorded message to the guests and Maggie explaining their first dance.
And then it was Doug’s turn to honor his mom! Guys.. I’m telling you this wedding was full of wonderful surprises.
Half way through the dance… They sang a duet. Just as they did when Doug was growing up. Amazing!!!
These two… You thought I was done! Maggie and Doug opted for 2 large cobblers and some Carl’s ice cream instead of cake. They then personally served it to their guests. How adorable is that?!
