Katie + Javon’s La Crosse Riverside Wedding was absolutely stunning! Despite the heat, these two wore the biggest smiles all day! We met at the Friendship Gardens near Riverside Park in La Crosse. The gardens were the perfect spot for us to escape the heat of the sun. Everyone involved were such good sports in spite of all of the heat and humidity!
Javon and Katie were planning to get married at the La Crosse Country Club in April. They made the choice to get married at the end of March before a safer at home order was in place. Katie + Javon had a beautiful intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends. They knew they still wanted to celebrate and have a more traditional wedding celebration, so they rescheduled their date for July. Remember when we all thought that life might be back to “normal” by then? Katie + Javon ended up having to rethink their wedding plans multiple times throughout the months of April to July. Minimizing guest lists, deciding to forgo a sit down dinner, coordinating with multiple vendors, and so on. Katie and I video chatted multiple times throughout all of this, and each time there was a new big change, Katie was still smiling through it all! I can’t imagine how difficult it was to make all of those changes and back up plans, only to have it still be restricted to immediate family.
Katie and Javon and their families had so much joy and happiness on this special day, despite it looking different than what was planned. As I was selecting images to feature on the blog, I could not get over how JOYFUL everyone looked. It seriously radiates through the photos. I hope you can see just how Katie + Javon choose to love one another, through the good and the bad, in these photos.
Katie + Javon are pros at the Dirty Dancing lift! This was too fun to capture! 🙂
Katie & Javon, Cody and I are inspired by your love for one another and the joy you find in each other. We know that this is only the beginning of your beautiful story! We are rooting for you!
xoxo, Andrea & Cody
