Little known fact about me is some of my favorite childhood memories take place in Lake Geneva. I have such nostalgia for the local library, the ice cream parlor, and playing on the public beach right next to the Riviera Ballroom. So, I was very excited when Tylar + Casey wanted their engagement session to be in one of my favorite places. While the town that day was bustling with tourists, we were able to have the docks all to ourselves. I loved capturing the quintessential lake lifestyle with the easy comfort of Tylar and Casey’s endearment for one another. These two made my job such a breeze, and I can’t wait to make more memories at their summer wedding!

When I met Paul and Maia for the first time I really hoped that I’d be lucky enough to be their chosen photographer. I loved their wiffle ball love story and their perseverance with a period of long distance between them. It also turned out that Paul and I used to be neighbors! What are the odds of that? Lucky for me I got to be their wedding photographer, because it was truly a quintessential stunner of a Milwaukee wedding day! Paul is the manager of the celebrated Milwaukee Public Market in downtown. It didn’t take much persuasion from Maia and his co-workers to realize that the perfect wedding reception location was just under his nose, and even most of his vendors including Form Fine Goods + Floral (those olive branches!). There were so many incredible moments on their wedding day full of love and laughter. I loved their first look on the top of Zen on 7, and also Maia and her father’s first look (wait until you see his reaction!). Still reeling in the amount of love between this couple and their special day.

This Best Place wedding was one of the most intimate and beautiful urban weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Michael and Amanda call Chicago home, but wanted to incorporate Amanda’s Wisconsin roots in their wedding day. Of course they chose the quintessential Milwaukee venue to host their nuptials and reception – Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery. After getting ready at the stunningly gorgeous Brewhouse Inn and Suites, Michael and Amanda had their first look at Zilber Park, and then headed over to the venue to say their vows. Have I mentioned how laid back and funny these two are? They were the most chill couple I have ever photographed, and encouraged all my vacant lot inspirations – it was true match made in heaven for this rule-breaking photographer.

Kathryn and Vlad’s Schlitz Audubon Nature Center Wedding was out of this world gorgeous. The bride wanted a subtle Tim Burton feel to her wedding day, and made that moody cinematic choice shine with her choice of vendors. The gorgeous floral arrangements were by A Floral Affair, and truly perfected the theme. Of course the bride’s stunning hair and make-up, the location of the ceremony, and the Russian Orthodox priests really rounded out the mise-en-scene. Can we just talk about the outdoor Russian Orthodox ceremony for a minute? Wow! It was hands down my favorite ceremony to witness. The beautiful chants that emanated from two priests as they blessed the rings and the intricate ring exchange made the ceremony feel like it was out of a movie. It was such a joy to be able to capture Vlad and Kathryn’s movie-like wedding.

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.
