Max and Karynne had long planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony planned at the Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. But on Saturday, Max spent more time checking the weather than he did getting dressed for the big day because on-again, off-again storms kept sweeping through the area. 

Nothing, however, would stop them from tying the knot in the lush green of the dells, and the sky lightened just enough for them to say their vows in nature...just before everyone ran back inside as new drops began to fall just after their kiss. 

It was a culmination of love for two high school sweethearts, but the entire day was a love fest of family and friends. We had such a blast making these images and can't thank Max and Karynne enough for their kindness throughout the day. 

Special thanks to all the vendors who helped make their day work so well: The staff at the Wilderness Resort (rushing out to wipe down the chairs moments before the service!), flowers from Cindy at Blooms Unfold, DJ by Jukebox Bandstand, Sari Anderson for makeup, Liz Zernicke of Locks by Liz for hair, officiant duties by Karynne's uncle, Jeff Quaerna, the gorgeous beaded wedding gown from Premiere Couture, bridesmaids dresses from David's Bridal, tuxedos from Nedrebo's, ceremony music by Jason Stubbs, and a tasty wedding cake from Agie's Cakes
