Weddings: lori and brian’s fall wedding, denmark and de pere

Wisconsin_Wedding_Denmark_Fall_Autumn_Voyeger_Park_Photos_1 Wisconsin_Wedding_Denmark_Fall_Autumn_Voyeger_Park_Photos_2I’m a sucker for a fall wedding, everyone knows this; that’s why Ben and I got married in October.  Fall is unpredictable, but to me and all the other autumn brides out there, the risk of wind, rain, and chilly temperatures is worth the bright colors and new, crisp smell in the air.

Lori and Brian planned a stunning day.  From the classic white bridesmaids bouquets and sleek gray tuxes to the simple baby’s breath end-caps and strings of pearls, everything about it had a feeling of classic romance.  Even with the wind and cold Lori and Brian were in the best of spirits the entire day – laughing with the bridal party and smiling through shivers.  We had a blast spending time with them and making some special memories to look back on.  Cheers, Lori and Brian, and congratulations on your marriage!

Weddings: nikki and tom at heritage hill

Heritage_Hill_Chapel_Wedding_Photography_Green_Bay_Beautiful1 Heritage_Hill_Chapel_Wedding_Photography_Green_Bay_Beautiful2I’m not sure how, but amidst the rainy, windy, foggy days that led into this fall, Nikki and Tom found the perfect day with perfect weather: 60’s, sunny, not a drop of rain in sight.  We had stunning, golden light all afternoon and enjoyed our little trip around the park to photograph the bridal party and couple.  Heritage Hill is one of our favorite venues as it offers such a variety of looks all in one location (a rustic log cabin, dreamy farmhouse, and wild fields all tucked into the heart of a city).  As photographers we couldn’t  ask for much more.

It fits Nikki’s personality to have a warm day showered in sunlight – she is bright, bubbly and has a way of making everything seem just a little more joyful.  Together Nikki and Tom are playful and relaxed as though their love is the most natural thing in the world.  To see them interact is to see the kind of love all marriages work hard to build, one with patience and understanding.  I want to say a big congratulations to the newlyweds; we are so happy to have been a part of your day!

Weddings: stephanie and dalton’s vintage barn wedding, waukesha

Waukesha_Outdoor_Barn_Wedding_Wisconsin_Vintage_Bed_and_Breakfast_1 Waukesha_Outdoor_Barn_Wedding_Wisconsin_Vintage_Bed_and_Breakfast_2Stephanie and Dalton planned the most beautiful September wedding.  The ceremony took place at Apple Tree Lane Bed and Breakfast in Waukesha, Wisconsin in a small clearing beneath arches of trees with a river that ran along the side.  The guests sat on bails of hay covered in vintage linens and the couple said their vows under an archway of greens with patches of sun breaking through.  Both the bride and groom were completely relaxed and anticipating this moment for which they had waited seven years.

Their romance is classic and beautiful: two young kids meeting in school with lockers side by side.  This simplicity was shown in every decision they made as they planned their wedding, including choosing Dalton’s family barn for the reception location.  Food was catered in, strings of lights hung floor to ceiling, and fresh ivory linens covered all the tables.  The room was filled with the love of family and friends.  Congratulations to Stephanie and Dalton, and cheers to many years ahead!

 

Weddings: kendra and garrett at lambeau field, green bay

Lambeau_Field_Packers_Outdoor_Wedding_Green_Bay_1 Lambeau_Field_Packers_Outdoor_Wedding_Green_Bay_2

There are so many things to love about this wedding: a first look in the Lambeau Field tunnel, beautiful sunny skies for on-the-field photos, and gold glitter platforms… but let’s be real here, it’s all about that blush dress!  Kendra and Garrett are big Packers fans, so when they planned their day, the venue was a no-brainer. The wedding was a destination of sorts as the couple lives in River Falls, but since football had bonded them together, the travel was worth the setting.  Kendra and Garrett’s family and friends gathered for the ceremony, excited by the amazing view looking out over the stadium.  The couple read heartfelt vows and poured mixed sand into a frame to symbolize the new life they were beginning together.  It was such a joy to share in their special day and photograph all the little details.  Congratulations, Kendra and Garrett!

Weddings: jessie and jerry at botanical gardens, green bay

Botanical_Gardens_Green_Bay_Outdoor_Wedding_Photography1 Botanical_Gardens_Green_Bay_Outdoor_Wedding2We have been so blessed this year to be the photographers for some very beautiful and unique outdoor weddings.  Jessie and Jerry’s gorgeous wedding celebration  at Botanical Gardens was no exception.  Jessie chose the most stunning mermaid-style gown with a low exposed back and had her hair done in a chic, classic updo.  Each detail from ceremony to reception was chosen for it’s simplicity,  style, and continuity.  The colors were deep plum and a natural khaki with lace and burlap accents.

The forecast was heavy with rain and all week we were preparing: gearing up our cameras; the bridal party was hunting down umbrellas.  The wedding included an outdoor ceremony and it was not to be missed.  The morning of the wedding, a sheet of gray clouds covered the sky, and the forecast read 85% rain all day.  As Jessie and Jerry dressed, it looked like the ceremony would be a wet one, but as the vows were read and the rings exchanged, not a drop fell.  The ceremony came to a close, and as it did, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds – a happy and welcoming symbol for Jessie and Jerry beginning the next chapter in their lives together.  Congratulations to both of you!  We were so glad to be a part of your special day!

 

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!
