Lake Park is not only a picture perfect backdrop for wedding photos, but also for the wedding ceremony as well! The beautiful stage on the north side of the park is something of a hidden gem in the Milwaukee wedding scene. Luckily for me, Michael and Laura scooped up the wooden framed structure along with the classic East Side mansion Villa Filomena. Laura and Michael had to plan their wedding while living a long distance apart. Laura was finishing up her medical studies here in Wisconsin while Micheal was practicing dentistry in Seattle. During Michael’s visits home we were able to fit in an engagement session (check it out here) where we wandered around the ever changing Walker’s Point neighborhood (it doesn’t even look the same anymore!). I really loved documenting this hectic, crazy, fun, long distance, exciting, loving time in their lives. Michael and Laura are truly two of the sweetest couples and I think their wedding reflects that sentiment perfectly.
