Weddings: miranda & kyle, simply country barn, freedom, wisconsin

To say we were blown away by Miranda and Kyle’s wedding would be an understatement. Simply Country Barn in Freedom is a gorgeous venue with high, open-structured ceilings, and rustic-elegant details. The wedding featured baby’s breath, greens, and pinecones, as well as antlers the couple collected while shed hunting. The afternoon was hot but the couple and their wedding party remained in good spirits. We photographed all around the venue, at the little bridal cabin, in the evergreens, and even made a special post-dinner trip outside for golden hour – our favorite! Congratulations, Miranda and Kyle; we wish you many years of happiness!

Weddings: katie & randy, radisson paper valley, appleton, wisconsin

When I met with Katie and Randy over Skype from their home in Seattle, I immediately liked them, and I have a feeling that is how most people feel about the couple. They are open, down-to-earth people full of positive energy, and their wedding was no different. Although the day was hot for Memorial Day weekend in Wisconsin, Katie, Randy, and their friends were all in high spirits. Their first look was in the courtyard of Radisson Paper Valley where their wedding would take place that afternoon. We traveled to Lawrence University in downtown Appleton for photos with their fun bridal party.

The ceremony was personal with unique readings and a “irreversible chemical reaction” to symbolize their unity. My favorite part was their vows in which they promised to be by one another’s side when they need help, and get out of the way when they don’t. For some reason I found that phrase to be a lovely way to talk about a marriage of equals in a real way (or maybe it’s my stubborn personality appreciating their stubborn personalities, lol). Either way, congratulations, Katie and Randy! We wish you many years of happiness!
