Rachael & CJ took us into the woods on their wedding day, to Pine Lake Crossways Camp in Waupaca. This cute location offered a sweet chapel with lots of little windows, tucked up on a hill for the vows and lots of greenery for portraits. We headed over to Indian Crossing Casino in Waupaca for a few more photos across the road, good eats, and lots of dancing. Enjoy some of our favorites from Rachael & CJ's big day!
Wedding days aren't perfect, and we don't believe they are meant to be. Watching a couple navigate their way through the little bumps on their wedding day gives us a glimpse at how they will navigate their new life together, as a pair, working together to solve life's problems.
Tamara & Curtis, you two handled the weather on your day with such grace and you remembered who you would be seeing in the isle and nothing else mattered. You two are an amazing couple, surrounded by some pretty terrific people who clearly know how to party!
Soooo if there was ever a wedding that Jeremy geeked out at, it was this one, and not just because Coyle is a cousin, but because it was Harry Potter inspired! Taylor brought out her inner nerd and helped transport family and friends straight into Hogwarts. It was... well, you guessed it, MAGICAL! From Gringotts bars of gold, to a Honeydukes treat table, plus tables literally lined with pages and pages of Harry Potter, candles, books, potion bottles, and keys.
It wasn't long ago and we we're hanging out with Ellyn and Jack at their engagement session (which they managed to squeeze in)! Their day was so much fun, not only are these two amazing people, Ellyn is also a rock star wedding planner y night (well not really a wedding planner) but she could be! Just wait till you see her decor!
A particularly special part of the day came early on, they decided to do a first look, which we love. There really is just something about that five to ten minutes when it's just the two of them, all giddy and ready to see their soon to be spouse and sharing a moment, to take a breath and just be near one another and soak it all in.
Kelly has been a college friend for the past 10 years and we we're thrilled when she asked us to be hers and Charlie's wedding photographers. Kelly has this contagious smile and laugh and Charlie has this quite kind personality. Seeing these two together is what it's all about, they add to each other and it's evident that they are in love. They sneak little glances at one another between shots, they are always smiling (even bigger than Kelly usually does) and they both have one major value in common, family.
We met up with Hannah and Jon in Madison for their engagement session and we knew their wedding day was going to be one to remember. These two have a way of bringing about joy, their hearts are filled with love and faith is at the core of their relationship. We joined these two lovebirds for some getting ready pictures and instantly adored their wedding party. They were the perfect mix of fun, sarcasm, and pride that their friends were about to get married.
So there we were, that July 23 day beyond excited to celebrate the Kern's to be! These two are absolutely great together. Each and every time we picked up our camera, they fell into each others arms. Erin has this quiet, sincere and genuine personality that radiates when she's in Bryce's arms, who by the way is an incredibly kind guy himself. The more time we spent with Erin, we also learned that she has a sassy side, which we LOVED! Their wedding party wasn't short of any sass either, seriously we had fun with these guys and gals.
