Gordon Lodge Wedding | Michelle & Kyle

**This wedding was shot by my amazing studio photographer, Melissa**

Somewhere in the gentle lapping of the waves on the shoreline, in the whistle of the breeze thru the pine needles, in the lilting float of a helicopter seed from the trees….is the spirit of Kyle’s grandfather.  He loved Gordon Lodge, and even more so, loved hosting his family there for vacation.  And so they return, again and again, year after year.  To feel close to him, to remember the fun, to bask in the warmth of the sunshine and recall his embrace.  The first time he brought Michelle to this little pocket of Door County, she knew she was pushing open a door in his heart that hadn’t been unlocked before.  Another trip brought their engagement, and with that it was an obvious choice to host their wedding at this special place.  Their day was peppered with gentle rain showers, but it didn’t matter.  They smiled and laughed thru it all.  Kyle couldn’t take his eyes off of Michelle, he was so enamored with his bride.  And at the end of the night, it was their hands tightly clasped on the dance floor.

Door County Wedding | Jenna & Drew

Now sits expectation in the air.
That’s Shakespeare, and it’s also handpainted on a sign as you enter Bjorklunden, the idyllic and enchanting wooded property where this wedding ceremony took place.  Such an apt epilogue to this day in Door County.  Family and Friends gathered on the peninsula to witness these two come together in marriage and party in celebration with them long into the night at About Thyme Farm.  For two lovebirds who met seemingly randomly in Mexico on vacation, it was only right that marriage start with such a relaxed vibe as well.



Intimate Villa Terrace Wedding | Diana & Justen


You know that feeling you get when you are snuggled up under a blanket by a fire, a mug of hot cocoa in your hand?  Take that, and mix it up with a great evening out with your friends – the kind of night where you can’t stop laughing, the stories flow freely and the food is legendary.  Add a touch of elegance, and that combination is exactly what Diana and Justen created for their wedding day in late fall at Villa Terrace.  When you have an intimate guest list you can do so many fun things for those select loved ones – like a kings table as long as the room, overflowing with candlelight, flowers, glitter and wine.  There was a moment when Diana, seated at the middle of the table, turned and looked down over the long line of candles and flowers to see two guests raise out of their seats to clink glasses – that right there was it – the moment that the day was absolute perfection.
