Rainy Day Urban Ecology Wedding

What do you do if it rains on your wedding day? You grab an umbrella and take it to the streets to make an unforgettable collection of memories. I am so happy that Mike + Kelly didn’t let a little rain keep us from making this beautiful collection of wedding day photos. This lovely couple made Milwaukee their wedding destination wedding as they planned their wedding from the east coast. Having met on UW-Milwaukee’s campus we knew we had to incorporate that special location into our wedding photography timeline. Our original plan went out the window when the weather changed for the worst, but we decided to keep campus as a sweet and private first look. The wedding party happily rolled with the punches and met us downtown where we managed to keep covered and dry before Mike and Kelly tied the knot at a sweet East Side church. After the sweet and intimate ceremony, everyone headed to the Riverside Urban Ecology Center to celebrate the perfect rainy day wedding. Take a peek at all the rainy beauty below!

Lake Lawn Resort Wedding

Brittany and Mike’s Lake Lawn Resort wedding is the kind of wedding that wedding photographers dream about capturing.  Listen, I’m not talking about the vintage Ford trucks, the amazing flowers, or even the magical lakeside setting…what I’m talking about is the insane amount of love within both Brittany and Mike’s family units AND their total adoration and love for one another.  Take a peek and see for yourself the massive amounts of unfiltered tears of happiness and the always magical love.

Pewaukee Lakefront Wedding

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.RandyLovesKerrie-001RandyLovesKerrie-002RandyLovesKerrie-003RandyLovesKerrie-004RandyLovesKerrie-005RandyLovesKerrie-006RandyLovesKerrie-007RandyLovesKerrie-008RandyLovesKerrie-009RandyLovesKerrie-010RandyLovesKerrie-011RandyLovesKerrie-012RandyLovesKerrie-013RandyLovesKerrie-014RandyLovesKerrie-015RandyLovesKerrie-016RandyLovesKerrie-017RandyLovesKerrie-018RandyLovesKerrie-019RandyLovesKerrie-020RandyLovesKerrie-021RandyLovesKerrie-022RandyLovesKerrie-023RandyLovesKerrie-024RandyLovesKerrie-025RandyLovesKerrie-026RandyLovesKerrie-027RandyLovesKerrie-028RandyLovesKerrie-029RandyLovesKerrie-030RandyLovesKerrie-031RandyLovesKerrie-032RandyLovesKerrie-033RandyLovesKerrie-034RandyLovesKerrie-035RandyLovesKerrie-036RandyLovesKerrie-037RandyLovesKerrie-038RandyLovesKerrie-039RandyLovesKerrie-040RandyLovesKerrie-041RandyLovesKerrie-042RandyLovesKerrie-043RandyLovesKerrie-044RandyLovesKerrie-045RandyLovesKerrie-046RandyLovesKerrie-047RandyLovesKerrie-048RandyLovesKerrie-049RandyLovesKerrie-050RandyLovesKerrie-051RandyLovesKerrie-052RandyLovesKerrie-053RandyLovesKerrie-054RandyLovesKerrie-055RandyLovesKerrie-056RandyLovesKerrie-057RandyLovesKerrie-058RandyLovesKerrie-059RandyLovesKerrie-060RandyLovesKerrie-061RandyLovesKerrie-062RandyLovesKerrie-063RandyLovesKerrie-064RandyLovesKerrie-065RandyLovesKerrie-066RandyLovesKerrie-067RandyLovesKerrie-068RandyLovesKerrie-069RandyLovesKerrie-070RandyLovesKerrie-071RandyLovesKerrie-072RandyLovesKerrie-073RandyLovesKerrie-074RandyLovesKerrie-075RandyLovesKerrie-076RandyLovesKerrie-077RandyLovesKerrie-078RandyLovesKerrie-079RandyLovesKerrie-080RandyLovesKerrie-081RandyLovesKerrie-082RandyLovesKerrie-083RandyLovesKerrie-084RandyLovesKerrie-085RandyLovesKerrie-086RandyLovesKerrie-087RandyLovesKerrie-088RandyLovesKerrie-089RandyLovesKerrie-090RandyLovesKerrie-091RandyLovesKerrie-092RandyLovesKerrie-093RandyLovesKerrie-094RandyLovesKerrie-095RandyLovesKerrie-096RandyLovesKerrie-097RandyLovesKerrie-098RandyLovesKerrie-099RandyLovesKerrie-100RandyLovesKerrie-101RandyLovesKerrie-102RandyLovesKerrie-103RandyLovesKerrie-104RandyLovesKerrie-105RandyLovesKerrie-106RandyLovesKerrie-107RandyLovesKerrie-108RandyLovesKerrie-109RandyLovesKerrie-110RandyLovesKerrie-111RandyLovesKerrie-112RandyLovesKerrie-113RandyLovesKerrie-114RandyLovesKerrie-115RandyLovesKerrie-116RandyLovesKerrie-117RandyLovesKerrie-118RandyLovesKerrie-119RandyLovesKerrie-120RandyLovesKerrie-121RandyLovesKerrie-122RandyLovesKerrie-123RandyLovesKerrie-124RandyLovesKerrie-125RandyLovesKerrie-126RandyLovesKerrie-127RandyLovesKerrie-128RandyLovesKerrie-129RandyLovesKerrie-130RandyLovesKerrie-131RandyLovesKerrie-132RandyLovesKerrie-133RandyLovesKerrie-134RandyLovesKerrie-135RandyLovesKerrie-136RandyLovesKerrie-137RandyLovesKerrie-138RandyLovesKerrie-139RandyLovesKerrie-140RandyLovesKerrie-141RandyLovesKerrie-142RandyLovesKerrie-143RandyLovesKerrie-144RandyLovesKerrie-145RandyLovesKerrie-146RandyLovesKerrie-147RandyLovesKerrie-148RandyLovesKerrie-149RandyLovesKerrie-150RandyLovesKerrie-151RandyLovesKerrie-152RandyLovesKerrie-153RandyLovesKerrie-154RandyLovesKerrie-155RandyLovesKerrie-156RandyLovesKerrie-157RandyLovesKerrie-158RandyLovesKerrie-159RandyLovesKerrie-160RandyLovesKerrie-161RandyLovesKerrie-162RandyLovesKerrie-163RandyLovesKerrie-164RandyLovesKerrie-165RandyLovesKerrie-166RandyLovesKerrie-167RandyLovesKerrie-168RandyLovesKerrie-169RandyLovesKerrie-170RandyLovesKerrie-171RandyLovesKerrie-172RandyLovesKerrie-173RandyLovesKerrie-174RandyLovesKerrie-175RandyLovesKerrie-176RandyLovesKerrie-177RandyLovesKerrie-178RandyLovesKerrie-179RandyLovesKerrie-180RandyLovesKerrie-181RandyLovesKerrie-182RandyLovesKerrie-183RandyLovesKerrie-184RandyLovesKerrie-185RandyLovesKerrie-186RandyLovesKerrie-187RandyLovesKerrie-188RandyLovesKerrie-189RandyLovesKerrie-190RandyLovesKerrie-191

Urban Ecology Center Wedding

One of my favorite Milwaukee wedding venues is the Riverside Urban Ecology Center (UEC).  I was so thrilled when Caitlin contacted me regarding her and John’s wedding at the UEC.  For those who don’t know, the UEC is a natural paradise within the city of Milwaukee that is part of Riverside Park (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted – yes the same as the landscape architect of Central Park in NYC (and many many many more wonderful U.S. parks)!) and houses the eco-friendly “green” building.  Caitlin and John share a love of the outdoors so it only made sense to begin their lives together under the canopy of mature trees in Riverside Park.  They started their big day with a sweet first look, followed by portraits where their session was photo bombed my monarch butterflies (the nerve!), next a marriage ceremony witnessed by friends and family, and finally the couple celebrated the night away with an enthusiastic dance party.  It was a perfect day.
