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.
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.
