Intimate weddings are our absolute favorite.  We have more time with the bride and groom as they prepare for the day, the details are more personal, and the guests are there for no other purpose than to witness the special commitment between two people.  Elise and Kristian planned their wedding in Fish Creek, Wisconsin at Peninsula State Park for a Wednesday afternoon in August.  Having the ceremony later in the day gave us gorgeous light that came directly across the bay as they said their vows and slid down into sunset as they celebrated with their families.

I cannot say enough about how much I loved this wedding. Elise and Krisitan each chose one attendant, and had a small guest list of 27 people, which gave the day a very cozy, festive feeling.  The flowers were grown by Elise and her mother and bouqueted that morning, her brother made the lovely cake, and Kristian’s brother played acoustic guitar throughout the ceremony.  The entire day spoke about who the bride and groom were as a couple: there were no obligations in terms of guests, no compromises in style, and no pretending to be anyone other than themselves.  We enjoyed every minute and are so happy to have been a part of such a genuine day.  Congratulations, Elise and Kristian!

Weddings: jennifer and eric, pamperin park green bay

Pamperin_Park_Outdoor_Wedding_Green_Bay_Wisconsin1 Pamperin_Park_Outdoor_Wedding_Green_Bay_Wisconsin2Summer means so many things, especially to us midwesterners who know how precious warm weather is.  Summer means beach days, flip-flops, farmers markets, and of course, weddings!  Jennifer and Eric could not have had better weather for their celebration this July! It was one of the days with gorgeous golden light ducking in and out behind clouds.

For Jennifer and Eric this day was not a beginning, but a confirmation of years of love – it was a renewal of promises made time and time again.  These promises were built in the moment that he cared for her when she was ill, when he claimed her girls as his, and when he got down on one knee in a parking lot with rain pouring down around them.  They proved to me once more that most beautiful thing about weddings is that at the end, you have a whole marriage ahead of you.

Jenn and Eric, it was a pleasure to be apart of your day, and we are so happy for your family! Best wishes and congratulations!
