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!

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.

Erin + Aaron’s Barn at Trinity Peak wedding was one of the most inspiring weddings of the 2017 wedding season. These two started planning their wedding from California and finalized it from New York. Now that is an impressive achievement. With the help of friends and family they got married near Erin’s childhood home in a stunning outdoor ceremony. Not wanting to be separated before they exchanged wedding vows they got ready in the same suite at The Delafield Hotel. Keeping family central to the day, the wedding party was made up exclusively of their sisters and brother. There were so many gorgeous details to photograph, but my favorite was photographing their simple (yet so chic and modern) fronds that decorated their tabletops in the magnificent barn. I hope to see more of that in future events! Erin and Aaron’s love story unfolded seamlessly throughout the day and it was a true pleasure capturing their first day as a married couple. Take a peek – I’m sure you’ll agree!
