When you think of a summer wedding in Milwaukee you probably don’t visualize a dense fog surrounding the city and dangerously black clouds threatening rain, right? Well Violet and Jared’s wedding day had exactly those atmospheric qualities. This brilliant (and beautiful) Bulgarian bride predicted the unpredictable nature of summer in Milwaukee and chose an indoor wedding for that reason. We had talked before the wedding about still wanting to do the wedding party photos outside, no matter the weather conditions, and settled on providing clear umbrellas as the perfect rainy day prop. Those umbrella’s were the perfect addition as the sky opened up and released the rain right after the ceremony. Tim, the newlyweds, golden retriever was probably the wettest of us all – that rain wasn’t going to keep him away from the family portraits! I really loved capturing Violet and Jared’s rainy wedding day.
As we enter the dreary days of mid-fall, I am reminiscing about the beautiful spring we had here in Milwaukee, and this Villa Terrace wedding in particular. This wedding had all the makings of a perfect wedding in my book: a couple madly in love, gorgeous styling, beautiful flowers by Belle Fiori, the perfect venue, and the nicest wedding party with the cutest ring bearers ever! Jessica and William had so much fun on their wedding day, and you can see it all right here.
