Bacchus Wedding | Jessica & Nick

bacchus_wedding-_

You have to love a simple wedding day.  Not basic, but simple.  It tends to be focused, edited, and concerning just what really matters to a couple.  Jess & Nick had that sort of day.  An intimate guest list, a special venue, amazing food, good music, and time to truly enjoy the company of those gathered.  This was the hallmark of Jess & Nick’s day.  As I left that night, a group of people were gathered around a table, paging through old photo albums, reminiscing about Jess’s mother, laughing at Nick’s teenage school pictures, and making all new memories.

Milwaukee Art Museum Wedding | Brandie & Joe

milwaukee_art_museum_wedding_-7

There’s such a sweetness to Joe’s treatment of Brandie.  Like a man that has clearly been raised right, who knows exactly how to treat the love of his life – the way maybe you remember your Grandpa treating his wife.  Chivalrous, generous, giving and selfless.  It was inspiring to see him move through the day and ensure all was exactly as it should be for his new bride.  This didn’t go unnoticed by his family and friends, who all spoke of Joe’s kindness, and the lightness his life took on when Brandie entered it.

Milwaukee Historical Society Wedding | Casie & Derek

milwaukee_historical_society_wedding_9

Anyone who meets Casie can’t help but notice her bold personality, sparkling laugh and hearty laughter.  Derek is decidedly more reserved on the surface, but has plenty of humor ready to break out, and is a great counter-balance to Casie’s energy.  Their wedding day was much the same.  Sparkly and glittery on the outside, full of love, laughter and family loyalty on the inside.  Plenty of laughter at the ready, and a few tears squeaking out on the edges.

Sugarland Barn Wedding | Mariah & Warren

sugarland_barn_wedding_9

This was a wedding I looked forward to all year.  Not because of all the awesome that I knew was waiting, but because of Mariah and Warren.  They are just so incredibly genuine.  You can’t help but love them, and marvel at their ease.  Their innate stylishness is exceeded only with their kindness and thoughtfulness.  This is a couple that is impactful in the lives of those who know them.  When an absolutely perfect day arrived in September for their nuptials, I wasn’t surprised.  It’s just how they roll.  It’s always evident when a couple has enjoyed the journey of planning their wedding, and this is one of those occasions.  It’s a stylishly Wisconsin day – with all sorts of wonderful nods to Mariah’s home state, and plenty of cool and ease to bring a California vibe to it all for Warren.  They dubbed it “An Old Fashioned Wedding” (as a nod to Warren’s favorite drink).  That is just what it was, in all the best ways.
