Rib Mountain Wedding

Meagan and Mitchell were absolutely adorable, and so thankful for to everyone for being a part of celebrating their union to one another! They didn't want a lot of fuss but did have special personal requests that are so important when planning a wedding day. Mitchell with a set of small rings representing his grandparents in his boutonniere and both bride and groom wanted a photo with their puppy before the ceremony began. 

Their venue was a stunning display of nature’s beauty and perfectly fit their vision of keeping things simple.  The amphitheater at Rib Mountain made for a gorgeous backdrop for their big day.  Their color palette of steel blue and gray complimented the outdoor elements perfectly. And with a few tears, Meagan was able to hold it in, but mainly smiles and laugher the day couldn't have been more perfect. 

Thank you again to Meagan and Mitchell for allowing me to capture your beautiful wedding day!

Fall Wedding Wausau, Wisconsin-Cassandra & Andy

Cassandra and Andy’s fall wedding in Wausau, Wisconsin couldn’t have been more wonderful. When I meet with Cassandra earlier in the year she told me how important family and photography were on her wedding day. Fast forward to the Monday before the big day when Cassandra’s grandfather passed away, while it was a difficult time she and her family wanted to continue with the wedding day and make it not only a celebration of Cassandra and Andy’s love but of life overall. The importance of family could be seen throughout the day from the stitching of the wedding date in into her wedding dress by Cassandra’s grandma, to the flowers arranged by Andy’s aunt, and the tattoo Cassandra got only day’s prior in her grandfather’s handwriting. She hind that tattoo during the week so the first time her parents would see it was when she was in her wedding dress, a moment that made us all tear up.

Cassandra was also very excited to have everything fall in Wisconsin be a part of her big day. The bridesmaid dresses were a rich burgundy color, sunflowers and a small blue piece of cloth from her grandfather in her bouquet. At the reception pumpkins along with family moments decorated the hall at the Holiday Inn, Rothschild. We couldn't have had better weather with the rain holding off for the bridal portraits at the Stoney Creek covered bridge. While the trees weren't at peak colors the small pop of red in the leaves along with the red covered bridge made for a beautiful backdrop.

Thank you again Cassandra and Andy for letting me document such a wonderful day.

The Waters Oshkosh Wedding| Caitlin & Josh

Caitlin and Josh had the most amazing classic and romantic fall wedding at The Waters in Oshkosh, WI. The venue was built in 1903 as the Oshkosh Yacht Club with Nantucket-inspired porch and balcony facing the waterfront. When we arrived at the venue friends and family were bringing in decor, flowers, everything needed to create a beautiful day. You could tell by the amount of people who showed up hours early to help out this day was not only about Caitlin and Josh but about their families too. After getting dressed in a beautiful bridal room filled with light, the couple shared a “first look” on that balcony where the two couldn’t stop smiling and you could see the love between them. I am always an advocate for a "first look" as it gives the couple time to be alone before all the actives of the day, and makes for some of my favorites photos of the day.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a fall wedding in Wisconsin, the ceremony was on the grass facing Lake Winnebago following guests mingled inside and out on the porches during cocktail hour. The dinner space was decorated with personal touches like Caitlin’s favorite candy, Skittles, and the cake topper with the letter "P". Gorgeous light pored in from the large windows and large chandlers added to a sense of warmth in the room along with the beautiful flowers from Petal Pusher Floral.

The day had been mostly cloudily so we weren't sure were would be able to get in the sunset photos we had planned for. But during dinner with the last few minutes of daylight the sun peaked out and created a beautiful pink sky allowing us those few last portraits of the day.

Caitlin and Josh thank you for allowing me to photograph your beautiful wedding day!

Madison Wedding

With summer and high wedding season winding down I am finally able to blog about some of the amazing weddings I have photographed this year. First up Alissa and Dave, some of you may have seen their engagement session and as I said in that they did not disappoint with the great locations and day filled with beaming love. I get emotional myself when looking at the images and see just how much love they have for one another. With the wedding in the assembly chamber at the Madison Capitol building and reception at the UW Memorial Union I could have stayed at each location for hours making beautiful images of the two of them!

Thank you so much Alissa and Dave for allowing me to witness your love and capture your special day!

While I wouldn’t choose the stress of changing your wedding date due to circumstances out of your control on anyone I’m so glad it happen to this couple. It was that situation that brought them to me and allowed me to document their amazing love for each other and their families. High school sweethearts Ali and Steve looked so in love and smitten with each other you would think they were still those teenagers who started dating 7 years ago. The love of their families was apparent to all of those attending big day as well, with everyone pitching in to make things run smooth despite the rain. The couple took it all in stride delaying the ceremony a bit but never bringing their sprits down. The wet grass brought out beautiful lush green that just added to the beauty of the day.

Waupaca Engagment at Apple Tree Lane Bed & Breakfast

I was so excited to meet Ali and Steve and photograph them at Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast. I usually do engagements months before the wedding but unusual circumstance had me meeting and photographing this Sheboygan couple only 2 weeks before their wedding. I had never shot in the Waupaca area so I had to ask around but through a great network of local photographers I heard about Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast. It’s a great spot along the Crystal River that has an orchard, bridge over the river, a barn and amazing open fields around it, what more could a girl ask for!Ali and Steve were nervous coming into the session but after a short time they opened up and allowed me to capture the fun, playful, love these high school sweethearts have for one another. As you can see I even included a shot of Ali on her phone because according to Steve, that’s how he sees her most of the time. I can’t wait to document this amazing couple again at their up coming wedding this Saturday!!
