Overture Center Wedding --_ 

“When Natalie decides to do something, you should just get out of her way” is how I believe her Dad put it during his touching toast about his only child, her ambition and the drive that led him to be speaking that fine June morning.  You see, that wedding brunch was so much more than a celebration of new marriage – it was a pivot point for Natalie, and for Brandon.  She had just graduated medical school, was headed off to her number one pick for residency, on another coast.  She would cross the purgatory between student and doctor at the same time she completed her brief two-month stint as a fiancé to her long-time love and became a wife.  Yes, you read that right- Natalie and Brandon planned their charming morning wedding in just two months.  And they did it without losing sight of what mattered most, without losing their minds and while somehow growing closer.  When Natalie decides to do something, and she has Brandon by her side – watch out.

In an effort to showcase all the best of Madison, the city they fell in love in, Natalie and Brandon chose the very best it has to offer in wedding venues; The Overture Center for the Arts.  Clean, modern, open and full of light – it was the perfect setting for their easy-going nuptials. Overture Center Wedding -13

Natalie’s Dad made a beautiful box from heirloom wood to house their anniversary wine, which was selected by Brandon’s father.  Overture Center Wedding -9Overture Center Wedding -14

Connie and her husband Jim are amazing officiants, and if you are lucky enough to be getting married in the Madison area, you simply  must have them.

Easily my favorite part of the brunch reception – trying to get a piece of the Croquembouche!  Such a fun cake substitute – a tower of french donuts.  For two months Natalie and I exchanged emails with the subject line – “donut cake” – it always brought a smile to my face.
