Wedding photographed by Photojournalist and Artist; Scott Erickson and Cathy Ann Erickson of Ambiance Studios Photography from West Bend, Wisconsin.
Congratulations to Jo’el and Alisha on their beautiful wedding. The wedding took place at Christmas Mountain in the Wisconsin Dells. It was such a beautiful and emotional ceremony. I couldn’t hold back the tears when Alisha’s Mom seen her in her dress that morning. Very emotional and a beautiful moment. And to surprise Alisha; her Mom gave her a special gift, a ring from her and her father. Another special surprise was to follow right before the ceremony. I’ll get to that later. 🙂
The couple choose to see each other before the ceremony so once Alisha was ready we drove her down to the Ceremony site to see Jo’el for a private meeting to capture their first look at one another in their wedding attire. Jo’el was set in position facing the lake at the ceremony site. Alisha walked up to him and tapped him on the shoulder. As he turned to see her for the first time in her wedding gown (looking like a princess), we captured the special moment from every angle from a distance; not disturbing their special moment. It was breathtaking. Jo’el picked Alisha up and twirled her around, it was like a scene from the movies. I couldn’t hold back the tears … it was a very emotional moment.
We gave them some alone time to talk and then got to take some fantastic images of the two of them. Later their family arrived for pictures; of course that meant more happy tears. It was so nice to finally meet the whole family. Everyone was so sweet; they made us feel like part of the family. The formals were all completed and then Jo’el and Alisha wanted to go downtown in the Dells for some great photo opportunity before the ceremony. One location was the upside down building … and then the coliseum. I’ll probably have to update this post on the exact names of where we went later. We had so much fun with the two of them and it showed they were having fun in the photos.
Once completed we had to get back in time for the ceremony. Now for the other surprise for Alisha from her parents. I knew about it in advance but promised to keep the secret.
To be continued …
