Ellie and Andrew’s beautiful Midwest wedding had us at hello! Wausau’s gorgeous Rothschild Pavilion set the stage, with its graceful wooden beams and stone facade. Evolutions in Design swathed the ceiling with drapery and the blush and gold color palette brought an elegant touch to the natural beauty of the venue. Ellie is resplendent in a ruffled Lazaro gown and floor-length veil, with perfectly natural hair and makeup by Jamie Pfantz. As always, The McCartneys captured the day flawlessly, and we are head over heels!
From the bride: Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and more. I was able to marry my best friend surrounded by our family and friends beaming with love and happiness. Our hometown wedding was the ideal combination of traditional, rustic, and elegant executed flawlessly by our amazing wedding team. For two high school sweethearts, it was the perfect start of forever together!
Andrew was so cute following some advice from a family friend! He sent me a special bouquet on the day of our wedding that helped bring everything back into perspective. The small bouquet was beautifully decorated, and held a decorative tag with the words “Will you Marry Me Today?” This pleasant surprise was just another special touch to add to the romance of our big day.
Having my Norwegian family travel all the way over from Norway was so special too! The Bride’s family from Norway sent over a Rosemaling plate as a wedding gift that was placed on display next to the Traditional Norwegian wedding cakes. We also had cheese heads in the photo booth because we are Packer fans at heart! I had my brother lead our guests in our family’s traditional Norwegian prayer that we say before meals.
The entire day went by so fast, but we both enjoyed every second of it! Our wedding day was perfect and if we could relive our special day over and over again we would!
