“Only Fun will be had” – that was the theme of Kate & Taylor’s wedding weekend in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.  It was more than a theme really, more like a motto.  And, they lived up to it in spades.  These two are one of those couples that are so complete, it’s difficult to see where one person ends and the other begins.  Such depth was apparent on their wedding day with every detail fully thought-out and executed with joy by both of them – together.  It all started with the venue – a private family estate in Elkhart Lake that is well known as a party spot for locals (Taylor’s parents own a vacation home in the area and are friends with the owners).  They partnered with a local floral farm and picked all the flowers the day before, and then Kate’s aunts (who happen to be florists) assembled the collection into more mason jars full of flowers than you have never seen in one place.  Their ceremony arch was made from wood that was brought all the way from Taylor’s family home in Pennsylvania.  Kate hand painted each invitation and table number.  Their flower girls were three girlfriends, not little girls (and they embraced their duties with glee).  Kate hammered Taylor’s wedding ring herself.   When the rain started to pour just after dinner was starting – everyone just huddled together closer under the sailcloth tent and partied on.  It was the kind of day that was so lovingly prepared, you felt privileged to take part in all that had been created.  Leaving shortly after Taylor’s uncle took to the harmonica and had the dance-floor cheering, I realized they are also the sort of couple you wish you were your true friends.
