Matt, or Neighbor Matt as my husband and I affectionately call him, met us under neighborly circumstances many years ago in Milwaukee. At about the same time as our friendship was beginning Matt started dating Alissa. We felt as if we were there through their entire courtship…since we lived next door! One evening sitting under our pergola enjoying some refreshments, the happy couple announced their engagement to us and also asked me photograph their wedding day. Of course I was thrilled and honored by the opportunity – maybe even a wee bit giddy! The bride + groom wanted to make the wedding as personal as possible so they eschewed tradition for their unique take on matrimony. It was an affair full of love and generosity as friends lent their house for the location, the caterer Underground Kitchen and was a college friend of Alissa, Courtney of Courtney Joy Floral (an insanely talented floral designer and farmer at Three Brothers Farm to boot!) is one of Alissa’s dearest friends, and the bride’s cousin Caley Conway (just google her) serenaded the crowd. Take a look for yourself!

There was so much love at this intimate Green Lake wedding. Josh and Angie got married last September at a stunning private residence right on the lake. The weather gave us a bit of everything that day including rain, wind, clouds, sun, etc. Talk about a wedding that had it all – ha! Luckily for us the weather cleared up just as I arrived, and the the outdoor wedding was still a go. There were so many things that I loved from their wedding, but my favorite was the sweet first look on the front porch of the grand estate. Josh and Angie really have a special kind of love,and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be able to document their beautiful wedding day.

Nathan and Shelby’s garden themed wedding still has me going, “GAH!”. Besides being insanely gorgeous in front of the camera, they are also insanely gorgeous on the inside, and that makes for the most sincerely stunning images. I absolutely loved working with this incredible couple and their wonderful family. Nathan and Shelby’s splendid affair was a true labor of love, and a great example of a DIY wedding. From the chalkboard signs, church pews, dilly bean wedding favors, to the couple’s very own restaurant fulfilling the delicious catering, no detail was presented without their careful restoration, salvage, or modification. Narrowing down the entire collection of photos from their outdoor Wisconsin wedding day into this post was extremely difficult as there was so much attention to detail, and so many beautiful moments constantly unfolding. So, I present you to the quintessence of their loved filled wedding day.

This wedding is so utterly fantastic that I want to travel back in time and do it all again! Joe and Emily had the most incredible boho modern wedding that Wisconsin has ever seen, and the bride was the mastermind behind all those stylish details. The English garden inspired private residence, in River Hills, was the perfect backdrop for both the ceremony and reception. There is so much to love about this wedding: the stunning Lazaro gown, an amazing couple in love, the inimitable location, the thoughtfully curated tablescapes, etc., etc.! Scroll on further to see all the enviable wedding style.
