Randy loves Kerrie, that much is obvious, and everyone loves Kerrie and Randy. These two sweethearts had the most romantic and intimate backyard wedding at their lakefront home in Pewaukee. Friends and family of the bride and groom lent their skills and talent to pull off this stunning DIY wedding. From the hand collected driftwood, the beautiful floral arrangements, the men’s grooming, hair and make-up, their officiant, that boat, etc., etc., etc., this wedding had touches of love from everyone. I’ve know Kerrie for many years, we first met at the BonTon photo studios, and I loved her from the moment I met her. When she asked me to photograph her and Randy’s wedding day I was simply thrilled! Randy and Kerrie are both a joy to be around and a delight to photograph (could either of them be any more beautiful?!), and I am so happy to share the story of their wedding day.

One of my favorite Milwaukee wedding venues is the Riverside Urban Ecology Center (UEC). I was so thrilled when Caitlin contacted me regarding her and John’s wedding at the UEC. For those who don’t know, the UEC is a natural paradise within the city of Milwaukee that is part of Riverside Park (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted – yes the same as the landscape architect of Central Park in NYC (and many many many more wonderful U.S. parks)!) and houses the eco-friendly “green” building. Caitlin and John share a love of the outdoors so it only made sense to begin their lives together under the canopy of mature trees in Riverside Park. They started their big day with a sweet first look, followed by portraits where their session was photo bombed my monarch butterflies (the nerve!), next a marriage ceremony witnessed by friends and family, and finally the couple celebrated the night away with an enthusiastic dance party. It was a perfect day.

Ami + Geoff’s wedding is just around the corner and I wanted to share their gorgeous engagement photos with the world! We started our photoshoot at The Outsider (9th floor of Kimpton Journeyman Hotel) for some champagne soaked cheers. (Bubbly for everyone!) Don’t you love how they look at one another!? After we made it to the bottom of the sparkly, we headed down to Bayview for some seasonal shots with their pup Wu Tang. That little Shar-Pei is the darn stinking cutest thing I have ever seen, and lucky for me I get to see him again at the wedding. Seriously, I think I have the greatest job. I get to photograph brides, grooms, and puppies! For now take this engagement session as a sneak peek for all the beauty that their wedding day is going to bring this blog.

Erin + Aaron’s Barn at Trinity Peak wedding was one of the most inspiring weddings of the 2017 wedding season. These two started planning their wedding from California and finalized it from New York. Now that is an impressive achievement. With the help of friends and family they got married near Erin’s childhood home in a stunning outdoor ceremony. Not wanting to be separated before they exchanged wedding vows they got ready in the same suite at The Delafield Hotel. Keeping family central to the day, the wedding party was made up exclusively of their sisters and brother. There were so many gorgeous details to photograph, but my favorite was photographing their simple (yet so chic and modern) fronds that decorated their tabletops in the magnificent barn. I hope to see more of that in future events! Erin and Aaron’s love story unfolded seamlessly throughout the day and it was a true pleasure capturing their first day as a married couple. Take a peek – I’m sure you’ll agree!
