Milwaukee Art Museum Wedding | Courtney & Ben | Wedding

Unique Details, Weddings

Jan 7, 2013

Trying to describe Courtney & Ben‘s wedding day is like peeling back the layers of an onion.  The details and moments are so numerous, you keep peeling, one by one, only to find the next one sweeter than the last.  A stunningly simple ceremony under the “wings” at the Milwaukee Art Museum, jovial cocktails on the terrace, and a rockin’ party complete with an array of cupcakes, the couple’s own personal infinity equation, glass boots full of Spotted Cow, and modern lounge spaces.  An appearance by Bucky Badger, performances by the groom, the best man and the sister of the groom; and personalized chocolates rounded out the evening.  Those who paid close attention found little glimmers of Ben and Courtney’s personalities sprinkled everywhere – little eyeglasses on signage, a charming bi-plane, ruffly petals, trivia napkins; the list goes on and on.  The day was finished off by newlyweds who departed at the height of the party (with the bride in a get-a-way dress) in a horse-drawn carriage, quietly into the night.

Courtney & Ben – Getting to know you both and your families over the past year has been such a treat.  I am so looking forward to seeing how your relationship grows and what is ahead for you all in the coming years.  Your wedding was a big blinking exclamation point on my calendar last year, and such a joy to shoot!
