Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge
and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you,
you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.

Pauquette Park in Portage, WI. I was first introduced to this park about 2 years ago when we met with my in-laws for lunch. There are several bridges to cross, gazebos to relax in, flowers to smell, and thousands of tadpoles to catch! :) One of the best parts of this place and yes, I know, I may sound morbid for loving this part of history…but I love history, no matter how sad it is. Couples have been coming to this park for years to have their wedding, even when there were horse and buggies. One couple, many many years ago were coming back to Pauquette park to celebrate their honeymoon together when their carriage missed the turn and they drowned in the pond. I know, morbid right? Or in my eyes, kind of sweetly romantic! :)
That is just what Aaron and Brenda’s wedding day was, sweetly romantic. Brenda’s face was lit up while walking towards Aaron and the two of them glowed the entire time. There was homemade strawberry jam on each table and yellow sunflowers throughout. Thank you Aaron and Brenda for letting me part of your day!!!
