Vivenne and Jason | Elegant and Romantic Black Tie Engagement Session

They met in dental school in New York. He was the introspective, methodical student with the piercing blue eyes. She was the vivacious and driven girl with a big dream and a smile that can light up a room.

A Ring and a Cross Country Move 

Jason and Vivienne have move from New York to Chicago...and Chicago to Madison, WI. After they got engaged, Vivienne had hopes of an intimate elopement. But with each move, they drew closer to Jason's family and she understood firsthand how important being surrounded by loved ones was and reconsidered her initial ideas.

And that's what I love about these two. They consider each other and support each other. As this amazing couple is about to open their own dental practice (check them out at Mendota Springs Dentistry-they know their things!), plan a wedding, and take on small city life, I have loved watching them grow together! 

Styling an Elegant and Romantic Fine Art Session

VIvienne commissioned me as her stylist leading up to her session. She knew she wanted something elegant, romantic and timeless, but had no time to create something cohesive as all her time was invested into starting their new practice (I seriously don't know how she does it!) 

I love how everything came together and especially died over her amazing black gown with a train (a train was her one request-girl has great taste!) 

Vivienne and Jason, thank you for sharing your evening with us-we just adore both your photos and your story. And girl. If you need to go shopping, you know who to call, okay?

We cannot wait for their Madison Club wedding with Cherry Blossom Events next summer!

Thank you PhotoVision Prints for the killer film scans!
