When Patricia and Travis decided on a Spring wedding in Milwaukee at the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, they got much more than they bargained for.  April 2017 was the month that Milwaukee decided to throw down against Spring’s slow awakening with an ice storm to end all.  Stepping onto the terrace overlooking the lake […]

Just have to share this one shot from Mel & JP’s engagement session.  These two are sassy, fun and energetic.  Their engagement session was all of that as well, fueled by a bit of whiskey maybe.  ;0)

One of the best and most challenging features of a wedding at the Villa Terrace in Milwaukee is that it is an ever-changing art museum as well.  So on any given Saturday, we will have sculptures, paintings, installations, videos, or display cases that are either “in our way” or “available to play with”.  I’m firmly […]

When I asked Carrie & Ron why they had chosen their wedding date and location, the answer was simple.  It was available, and it fit the window they had in their schedule.  They were realistic about their plans in a beautiful way.  Getting married wasn’t as much of a priority as living life together was.  […]

Door County in late fall has a unique sort of mystique.  The tourists have long left, the air is crisp with an icy edge.  The roads are quiet and you get a general sense that everyone is building their nest for the long hibernation ahead.  It’s a time of transition, where you can get a peek at the […]

This Whistling Straits wedding will keep you on your toes.  Just when you think you have it all figured out, you’ll discover that wait – this couple isn’t who you expect.  Whether it’s the bright and cheery florals, the sweet and sassy fuschia dresses coupled with the wink-worthy lobsters on Tom’s tie, the just gorgeous […]

Ashok doesn’t love much more than he loves Riverbend.  He lights up within its walls, his eyes sparkle as he describes the library, and his shoulders relax a bit lower as he walks the grounds.  But then there are Brooke and their kids.  They certainly rank above this enchanting estate, and when you see them all […]
