You might remember this stunning couple from earlier this spring. We posted the story of their intimate Wisconsin Capitol Wedding several months ago, but instead of a big reception, Sam and Jessica had a quiet meal on the square. Sam was in the midst of rotations for medical school, but the April 30 wedding date was very important to Jessica due to some beautiful family history with her grandparents. 

So they compromised--They'd get married in the presence of family but when Sam had a bit more control over his schedule, they'd throw a pig roast at the family home near Belleville. Last weekend, Sam and Jess invited family and friends to dance, enjoy the beautifully crisp fall weather, and celebrate. 

Sometimes, thinking outside the box works the best, and instead of the downpours we faced in the spring, we got a gorgeous evening spent around a fire, sipping beer and telling stories. Here are a few of the portraits we snuck in during the party.
