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!
Here is a couple that embraces life. Brittany and Eric and their beautiful daughter Lillian celebrated their wedding day surrounded by family, friends, and... a couple bottles of Jack Daniels (as decor of course!). Their day was absolutely perfect, mother nature provided us with a warm summer day with blue skies. Also their wedding party was a HOOT! No really, wait till you see the JORTS that made their way into the reception.
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.
Just when we didn't think it was possible, the weather broke for Kimberly & Richard and we were all able to enjoy a warm, sunny day. I can't stop thinking about how EXCITED Richard was to be marrying Kimberly. Every time I saw him that morning he was smiling from ear to ear and brimming with joy! After their ceremony those smiles continued. That, my friends, is what love is all about.
