Badgers at Heart

Nora & Matt celebrated their nuptials in an outdoor forest setting in Door County.
Amanda Christensen

Mutual friends brought Nora Olson and Matt Murphy together as undergrads at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; many Badger football games and final exams later, Nora and Matt’s relationship continued—long-distance, with Nora in Milwaukee and Matt in Madison. During a classic Madison weekend of Badger football and good food at Union Terrace, Matt capped things off with a proposal at the elegant Edgewater Hotel. Due to COVID-19, the couple decided on an intimate ceremony with close friends and family at Nora’s parents’ home. Neutral and natural shades of green and pink shined in the forest setting for a magical vibe, as the couple celebrated among wildflowers and pines. Small bouquets accented trailing linens of the dining table as Nora and Matt cut their wedding cake. After the ceremony, everyone took a trolley to favorite Door County spots, from Ephraim Dock to Peninsula State Park, ending the night with a delicious meal outside amid Wisconsin’s north woods.
