Thomas + Emily go to together like Frank Lloyd Wright and organic architecture. Although Thomas is a few years younger than me I remember him from high school (he’s always had a great sense of personal style). Fast forward many years later, our paths cross again, we meet again at ArtAsia (an Asian antique store and art gallery) where I had a part time gig. Emily entered the picture as an intern at the store before she headed to Thailand to teach English. When she came back to Milwaukee, I noticed a sweetness starting to develop between her and Thomas. In fact everyone at the store noticed, and we kept tabs on them waiting for a dating announcement to be made. It took a LONG while, but it finally happened. Years later, after starting my very own photography business, I get a text from Thomas saying that he had proposed on the rooftop of Artasia, and wanted me to shoot their wedding. Nothing beats that feeling. Nothing. I always knew deep down they would get married, but I was beyond surprised and thrilled that I would be the one to document their wedding day. Take a look at the bespoke beauty the Thomas and Emily curated for their big day.
Thomas owns Wilo Design, so he had to put his personal touch on the decor. He designed and made the banner, as well as the open cubes that contained flowers designed by a family friend.
Remember the long sun soaked days, green trees, flowers in bloom, and soft warm breezes that September graced us with? Well, there is no better way to ward off that bitter cold Wisconsin fall air then by looking at these warm and inviting images from Bill and Maureen’s summer wedding. The highlight reel of this wedding is quite long and varied, but my absolute favorite moment to photograph was their perfectly timed wedding ceremony. The sun was setting on the other side of the Milwaukee River as these two lovebirds exchanged vows under a lace arbor (exquisitely designed by Stems Cut Flowers). Quite honestly, I could go on gushing all day about this easy breezy warm weather wedding, but I’ll let the photography do the talking.
