Kristi & Nathen / by Kaitlyn Luckow

This past September, we had the honor of photographing a wedding that was so full love that it left us in tears at some points (at least it left Kaitlyn in tears).

Kristi and Nathen married in Jefferson, WI amongst their closest friends and family. Their entire day was filled with genuine moments and their wedding was sprinkled with personal touches that made it so incredibly special.

From the notes they wrote to each other to the polka dancing first-dance, to the hilarious speeches and showstopping fireworks, this day was truly special.

But at the core of it all is Nathen and Kristi’s love story.

Kristi fell in love with Nathen and his big heart.

“No matter what we are doing, he will drop whatever it is to make sure that everyone feels loved and cared for,” Kristi said.

Nathen spoke about how he has never felt more like himself than when he is with her. He is happy every day to be able to share his life with Kristi.

“Everything she does is the cutest thing and makes me smile every day,” Nathen said.

A few months before their wedding, I asked both Kristi and Nathen what they were most excited about on their big day.

Kristi said she was most excited to see Nathen’s face as she walked down the aisle and she was wondering if he was going to cry. Spoiler alert, he totally did.

Nathen was excited for the same part: seeing Kristi walk down the aisle, and to own the dance floor with polka. Seriously, this guy has moves.

Kristi and Nathen’s life together is only just beginning.

“We are an amazing team and there is no one else in this world that I would want by my side through life,” Kristi said. “I'm very excited about: traveling, buying a lakehouse, living everyday and cherishing the small things, watching each other grow not only in our jobs but individually and as a team.”

Below are some of our favorite memories and moments that we will not forget.

Congratulations, Kristi & Nathen. We love you!
