What a perfect weekend for yet another fabulous spring wedding in Wisconsin! The sun was shining – but not too much! – for Mindy and Jake’s big day at the historical grounds of Heritage Hill in Green Bay. The girls arrived with much excitement and were escorted to the bridal room to get ready while the guys stayed safely away at an off campus location.
Despite the crowded bridal room Mindy and her bridesmaids made due with the small space and transformed themselves from regular girls into an entourage of beautiful women. By this time the guys had arrived and stood anxiously outside the chapel awaiting further instruction. It wasn’t too long before word was sent that the men needed to move inside to avoid seeing the bride as she began her walk up the path to the chapel. With nothing else to put on and no detail left untouched Mindy started down the path toward her future husband. The real show was about to begin.
The crowd quieted down as the group began lining up outside. One by one the ushers seated grandparents, then parents and other family. Finally the bridal party made their way down the aisle, couple by couple until everyone stood waiting for the real star of the show. The chapel doors closed and everyone stood in anticipation. They opened again to reveal Jake’s beautiful bride, his love, his life, his future!
After exchanging family vows with a ceremony filled with family, friends laughter and love, Jake and Mindy turned and happily made their first appearance in public as Mr. and Mrs. Jake Jensen.
After the ceremony the crowd departed while Mindy and Jake stayed behind for a fun photo session around the grounds at Heritage Hill. The couple took advantage of the historic buildings and scenery which resulted in some really great shots!
By this time, everyone was ready for a break and some refreshments. The crowd had filtered over to a local pub for some sustenance and fellowship and we soon joined them. After some time to recharge, the happy couple was ready for more photos. After a few down town Green Bay the group headed over to famous Lambau Field for a few more group pictures before heading to the reception.
Arriving at the reception hall, our bride couldn’t have been more happy. The decor was everything she hoped it would be and more, thanks to the hard work of family and friends. Guests had already made themselves at home as the group got ready to make their grand entrance. They were announced couple by couple until Mr. and Mrs. Jensen made their debut. After the guests of honer were seated dinner began.
The two families seemed to merge together seamlessly. Everyone had a great sense of humor and had a blast poking fun at one another – especially Mindy and Jake who could not stop joking and laughing at each other for the entire day. This happy couple is clearly a solid one, and with the love and support they get from their friends and family, Mindy and Jake have a long and beautiful life ahead of them.
Congratulations again to the new Mr. and Mrs. Jensen!
