There was a night at a bar, a beautiful girl, and someone spilled a drink on her.  He offered her his jacket to fix the obvious problem.  As Matt will tell you, “It was all gravy after that”.  I don’t think Matt has stopped being chivalrous since that fateful night.  Where Britany is concerned, he has a singular focus – her happiness.  He still offers his jacket, clears the way, and generally walks thru life wondering if there is something that would make Britany’s day better.  And that is much how their wedding day went.  Matt trying to make sure the day was everything that would make his Bride smile.  It’s an old-fashioned kind of love.  The kind that burps babies, squeezes hands, brings breakfast in bed, rocks on the porch.  It’s the kind that sees you through.

Notah & Kosta | Engagement

greek_engagement__3

She spotted him in a bar.  One slow-sipped drink later and there were so many commonalities in front of them, it was as if the path had just been paved for their future.  And it had, but such groundwork was laid long before that night.  His family, her family, they had danced around each other many times back in Greece.  Both had immigrated to the U.S.  Both had become restauranteurs.  And now, their children had finally crossed paths.  So it was fate that these two would go back to Greece, to explore the homelands of those families.  And that, while standing on a cliff in Santorini, Kosta would pull out a ring…

Romantic Villa Terrace Wedding | Emma & Spence

villa_terrace_wedding-4

Spence and Emma are two of those people who you meet and realize you are in the presence of an “old soul”.  Their manner is calm, their sensibility, timeless. To step into their wedding day is to step into a party of almost a hundred years ago.  It’s not just the styling, the cut of her dress, or even the lovely Villa Terrace (which actually is from a century ago).  It’s that Emma obviously shares a piece of her Great Grandmother’s soul (and her name).  And that Spence is a man cut from the same cloth as Gatsby himself – all chivalry, gentlemanly manners and style.  This day was unabashedly fun, but also so deeply steeped in tradition, emotion and beauty.

Fall Engagement Session | Trevor & Shawna

Miwaukee_Fall_Engagement_Session5

For Shawna and Trevor, the pieces just fell into place.  They were co-workers with a spark, but who also were dating other people.  Those relationships dissolved naturally, and they found themselves chatting it up and seeing reflected in this other person, everything they had been looking for.  Trevor stole Shawna’s heart in short order and before either of them knew it, suddenly they were living together and talking about marriage.  When your puzzle is complete, its complete.  There is an ease in knowing that, and it is something these two just exude when they are together.  One is so well complimented by the other, and there is such comfort there.  You just know you are witnessing an old married couple, rocking on the porch swing together, reminiscing about the old days….
