Branden and Sol – Madison, WI

My cousin Branden and his bride Sol were married about a month ago in a very private setting. They decided they still wanted to have a party so they basically had a whole wedding day, minus the ceremony, for all of their friends and family to come and celebrate. Most of Sol’s family is from Mexico, and about 40 of them made the trip up for the wedding.

The Morgan family has music pumping through their genes… so there were definitely some times for that to be demonstrated. My uncle is a percussionist for the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Ryan and Branden are both involved in the band Misery Signals. Not for the soft of hearing. Branden’s dad and brother surprised them with two songs during the receptions. Branden was certainly touched.

Sol on the other hand is a trained dancer and got Branden into shape for their first dance. They had quite a number. I never imagined a heavy metal drummer shaking his hips like he did haha

Other exciting parts in the evening included a drum circle, a bongo solo by Elec Simon of Stomp, and some capoeira. If you don’t know what capoeira is… look it up!

First person to guess Sol’s favorite color gets $100

Nate and Lianne got hosed weather-wise on their wedding day. The days before and after were not too bad, but on their day, it rained, snowed, sleeted, and most likely hailed at some point. Plus it was in the low 30s with 30mph winds. Not the spring wedding they had in mind. Despite all of this... they kept their heads up and enjoyed the day thoroughly! It was a blast to hang out with these two and be a part of their wedding, damp or not!

Matt and Elizabeth
Matt and Beth know how to have a good time. I travelled to Coldwater, Ohio for their wedding at the end of July and had a great time with them. Matt is quite a character, and has a face or expression for every moment of the day. Both of them were all smiles and were able to enjoy some quality time with their closest friends. A break between the ceremony and reception allowed for them to take a bus of their friends to a bar on the lake and have some drinks and relax. An old timer on a Harley tried to give Beth a ride to the bar from the bus. She would have to go side saddle, and this one had drudge report written all over it. Thankfully she d ...

Wonderful day with Sara and Eric! The leaves stuck around really late this year so we were able to take advantage of the color while it lasted. Their dog-sitter met them at the park with their doberman, Diesel for a few photos. He even brought him to the reception to surprise her on the dance floor. That dog can dance! They were married at St. Mary's in German Village and had their reception at the Columbus Athletic Club. ...
