To avoid being the center of attention, Cydney dressed her bridesmaids in white, as well. Though the bridesmaid dresses were united in white, they varied in style, cut and length. Cydney didn't want to mess with any colors and wanted her wedding to be clean and simple. And pairing the white bridal gown + bridesmaid dresses with the men in light gray, her vision was artfully achieved. Especially with the simple bouquets of greenery!!
The gorgeous style complemented their ceremony at Holy Family Catholic Church and reception at South Hills Country Club in Fond de Lac, Wisconsin. And in the midst of all the beauty, there was lots of fun going on! Their photographer, Tonya of Tonya Hjort Photography wrote to us: "Cydney's family moved from Minnesota to Wisconsin, so naturally there was some Vikings/Packers rivalry going on. Cydney's father even gave Jesse (a Packers fan) a custom Vikings jersey, complete with the newlyweds' last name on the back. The reception roared with "Go Pack Go" from all of the Packers fans." HA! Love it!!
So whether you're hosting your wedding day at a country club, considering the simple color scheme, or the mismatched bridesmaid look, you'll be awing over this real wedding FOR DAYS. Get your Pinterest fingers ready, lovely brides!
Champagne... the perfect way to begin a wedding day, right?!
Tonya Hjort Photography said: "Being with Cydney and Jesse for the day, you could just tell how in love they are. It was so fun to experience their love and the love they share with their friends and family. Everyone was so excited to be celebrating the newlyweds, and it's apparent in the photos."
So chic. So dapper. So handsome. There's just something about men in suits + tuxedos.
