Love is wild. And a lot of the time, that makes wedding planning a little wild too. Adam and Maureen had grand plans for their big day many moons ago. Then COVID did them dirty and they postponed. With a new date in sight, their originally booked photographer had a baby and that’s when I jumped into this wild party. But enough about the details, let’s get onto their story.

Adam and Maureen were set up by friends. It’s it perfect when the people who know you best, know who you will jive with?! He is the quiet, calculated, numbers guy. And she is the people person with a tender soul. Together they make an incredible pair of sarcasm and sweetness. 

The day that they had been waiting for, what seems like forever, was filled with family and friends at the Cathedral of St Raphael’s. With stunning architecture, classic style, and lots of love, the Thielen’s created a memorable day full of elegance down to every last detail. From the delectable cookie bar to the stunning florals scattered around the reception, there was beauty around every corner.

Even with the crazy planning and postponing of this day, Adam and Maureen brought together the most lovely humans to celebrate with them. The hugs, the kids, the dances. Every moment of this wedding brought the feels. Congrats Thielens!
