Woodwalk Gallery Wedding with Sunset Beach Photos, Door County

Door County Wedding Photographer Egg Harbor Wedding PhotographerSmall Wedding Door CountyWoodwalk Gallery, Egg HarborEgg Harbor, WisconsinWe don’t have a running list of our favorite weddings, but if we did, Alicia and Mike’s wedding would be on it. It was everything we love best — an intimate guest list, a small wedding party, the love of family and friends, and a beautiful early fall afternoon.

Woodwalk Gallery Wedding, Door County

The wedding took place at the Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. It is an art gallery and wedding venue and one of our favorite places to photograph because of the incredible scenery and wonderful owners. Their ceremony took place under a pergola in a field of wildflowers. Alicia walked down the aisle with her father, and Mike smiled seeing her arrive. After hors d’oeuvres and drinks on the lawn, we wandered into the sunflower fields for pictures.

The reception was held in the barn space at Woodwalk surrounded by local art with dinner served on a collection of vintage china. Friends and family were laughing happily, enjoying food and drinks, followed by some of the most thoughtful wedding speeches we’ve ever heard.

After a little taste of cake, we drove Alicia and Mike out to the beach for sunset photos. All day long it was cloudy and our plan for sunset pictures looked impossible, but as we pulled in the clouds lifted just enough to give us that bright, golden light that all photographers dream of. We walked out on the pier while wild gusts of wind blew and waves crashed up over the sides. Alicia and Mike weren’t bothered by any of it; they were simply content in being there together.

As we drove back to the venue, we talked about life, love, travel, and all the wonderful future plans they have on the horizon. It sounds like the start of something wonderful. Congratulations, Alicia and Mike!

Weddings: amy & steph, woodwalk gallery, door county

Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor is one of our dream wedding venues. Firstly, it’s an active gallery with beautiful artwork, but then it’s also a historic barn surrounded by hilly fields, woods, and vintage ephemera. When I first sat down with Amy and her mother, and found out what friendly, down-to-earth people they were, I knew we wanted to be a part of their wedding day. After meeting Steph and getting to know them both, we couldn’t have picked a better couple to work with.

Amy and Steph’s day was full of personal touches, from a reserved chair at the ceremony for Amy’s late father, to an aisle lined with “pennies from heaven”, to Amy’s service dog dressed in a custom “work vest” for the event, every detail was attended to. One of the most striking features of the wedding was the seemingly endless flowers. Everywhere we turned there were vases, jars, and pails brimming with purple and white blooms.

Although rain was forecast at 80% throughout the day, the clouds stayed away for Amy and Steph’s first look and outdoor ceremony. As dinner began in the tent, the rain started to come down, and as speeches came to a close we could hear the thunder begin and the wind pick up. On our wedding day in the midst of family portraits, a sudden gust of wind brought down a large tree branch which fell between us and out photographers. A friend of mine said that she felt it was someone up in heaven greeting us and joining in the day. If that is true, Amy and Steph had lots of love sent down to them that day with the rain, wind, and thunderstorms that carried on throughout their barn reception. Cheers, Amy and Steph!
