Nicole and Lucas {{Madison, WI Wedding Photographer}}

A couple that takes Shakespeare very literally when he says, “All the world’s a stage.” So, they went ahead and got married on that stage.

Overture Center, a museum and theater

Under a pergola in a candlelit room, Lucas awaits his bride, Nicole.


Ugh, I’d love to write this entire post as a play… unfortunately, my theater game isn’t quite on the level of Nicole and Lucas. This funky, theater-loving couple staged their wedding like it was on a…well…a stage. After having a “first look” under the old Madison Central High School arch, the couple hosted a cocktail hour prior to the ceremony for their guests in the hospitality room at the Concourse Hotel.

As evening fell, the lights faded in the Wisconsin Studio in the Overture Center and candles were lit to create an ethereal glow for the ceremony. Lucas waited for his bride under a pergola lit with glass-globed candles. Guests, close family and friends, enjoyed the intimate ceremony holding wedding programs made to look like playbills. (This couple sure knows how to set the scene, heh, get it?) Anyway, back to the wedding.

After the simple and modern romantic ceremony, guests made the short walk down the hall for the unconventional reception. Forgoing many common wedding traditions, there were no toasts, no cake cutting, and no chicken dance (amen!). Instead, show tunes played in the background as walking servers passed appetizers and guests mingled in the lobby.

Following the ceremony, the bride and groom took an urban stroll, once again setting the scene for their portraits amid the buildings and architecture of downtown Madison.

For putting on the best theater-themed wedding, the award goes to Nicole and Lucas!

“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” ~Oscar Wilde

All due respect to Mr. Wilde, but I think Nicole and Lucas proved there might be one more immediate way in which a human can share with another human: a wedding.
