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.
Pam & Josh had a day filled with heritage & fond memories. They exchanged vows in Pam's family church, Saint Florian's in Hatley, WI, visited Freddy's, a local restaurant where Josh used to also live above, took bridal party portraits in their favorite woods, and celebrated with friend's & family in the barn that Josh's family used to own. It doesn't end there! They traveled to all their locations after the ceremony in a hay wagon pulled by a beautiful John Deere tractor.
We have been lucky enough to photograph 3 sister’s weddings over the past couple of years. Heather & Derek were the first one’s to be married in 2011, then Lindsay & Ted in 2013 and now last, but most certainly not least, Ashley & Joe. It has been a complete pleasure working with these girls and their significant others. Words cannot express what an amazing feeling it has been to be trusted with capturing their most precious memories. Ashley & Joe had a warm cloudy day. But those clouds didn’t cast any shadows on the mood that morning. Ashley readied herself for her wedding day in the comfort of her childhood home but waited to put on her final touches at her family church across the street with the assistance of her sweet mother and sisters. Joe put on his finishing touches just a couple rooms away.
Trees were in full bloom and love was in the air. Michelle & Eric's wedding day was beyond perfect! After they exchanged vows at Saint Paul's Catholic Church in Plainfield, these two headed outdoors to a surprise from Eric's fellow firefighters - firetrucks, sirens, horns, hoots & hollers to congratulate the new Mr & Mrs! What a cool experience! A memory I'm sure they will hold dear.
Looking back at KariAnn & Clayton’s wedding makes us look forward to all the weddings we have lined up for 2015! We are excited for more first looks, gorgeous churches, lush green parks, happy couples and of course yummy cake. KariAnn & Clayton had all of these things and so much more! The excitement throughout their day was contagious and happiness for the newlyweds was shared by everyone who came to celebrate. These two couldn’t be more perfect for each other.
Brianna & Tony are two of the nicest people we have met. They will always greet you with a smile and a big hug. Seriously… who doesn’t love hugs?! Their wedding day was hot, sunny and oh so beautiful! Brianna & Tony opted to do a first look prior to their ceremony so that they could ease some jitters and spend a few moments alone. Their ceremony was then held inside the Riverside Ballroom in Green Bay with a pretty white linen backdrop, surrounded by their friends and family. After their intimate ceremony we headed to Voyager Park in Green Bay and enjoyed taking pictures along the tree lines and within the lush, flower filled valley. We even took advantage of a pretty red building nearby. The evening seemed to fly by once we returned to the Riverside Ballroom. Family and friends decided this was the perfect time to surprise the newlyweds with a flash mob of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The turnout was phenomenal! I think I know about two moves in the ‘Thriller Dance’ and I’m sure you can guess which two moves those would be :) VENDORS // salon: Aveda Indira // florist: Bouchard's Floral // ceremony backdrop: I Do Wishes // limo service: Prestige Executive Limousine // baker: Monzu Bistro
First looks and outdoor ceremonies. Two of our most favorite things!
Miranda & Brandon had a beautiful summer day with gorgeous greenery all around. Miranda wore a fabulous gown with beads, buttons and lace that fit her like a glove! Her heavily beaded necklace was the perfect addition.
We took Miranda & Brandon to Iverson Park in Stevens Point for their first look. They asked for a green, not so landscaped location - might we say.... it was the PERFECT spot for them. Long grasses, trees everywhere and a bridge that made a great substitute for an isle. First looks are so sweet. It's the couples moment to be alone and enjoy each other's presence. Shortly after their first look, we gathered up the rest of their wedding party and enjoyed our time photographing all of them! These folks are all a ton of fun to be around :) Oh... Did I mention the awesome charcoal gray suites, navy blue ties and the gorgeous color of the bridesmaid dresses?! What a fabulous combination!!
Ok ok, enough out of me! Check out the rest of Miranda & Brandon's wedding day!
