Nacole & Doug’s Elopement at the Speckled Hen

Wisconsin Wedding Photographers in Madison It was a beautiful October Saturday, and Nacole and Doug enjoyed a lovely fall afternoon saying their vows at The Speckled Hen Inn. I am so glad they found me and invited me to enjoy their intimate day with them! I love elopements, and not only for the relaxed and shorter day of work. I really do adore the opportunity to be with my bride and groom without the pressure of a hectic schedule and a long guest list. We get to be a bit more relaxed. We get to go at our own pace, explore where we want to, and have a ton of fun before they head off on a casual wedding night dinner. Nacole and Doug's day was absolutely perfect. The weather was nice, the fall colors came out to play, and the scenery was stunning!
