Randy + Amanda | An enthusiastic WI wedding celebration

Two things were absolutely certain about this wedding celebration: Randy and Manda are completely in love and they are both incredibly loved by many. There was joyful laughter, there were happy tears, lots of pink, a surprise second wedding dress, and plenty of dancing. The bridal party was a very tight-knit group of friends, which only added to the crazy fun. Plus these families know how to celebrate!

I hope you enjoy their wedding story and image highlights...

Nick + Angela | A magical Wisconsin Wedding

The beautiful bride may have been wearing the Disney Cinderella Wedding Dress (by Alfred Angelo), but this wedding was far from make-believe. At moments it certainly seemed like a magical fairytale, but the reason so many friends and family members came to celebrate in August was because of the very REAL love between Nick and Angela. 

I'm so excited to share their wedding story and image highlights...

Spencer + Kathleen | A charming Illinois Wedding

Beauty. Elegance. Bliss. Emotion. The marriage ceremony & celebration for Spencer and Kathleen was one of the most charming we've experienced. The love they have for each other is obvious, and when you added in the love their families have for each of them, it was absolutely touching! This August wedding in Elmhurst, Illinois goes down as one of the most beautiful—in every sense of the word—that we've ever had the pleasure of photographing.

I'm SO thrilled to share their wedding story and image highlights...

Zac + Rachel | An intimate, backyard Wisconsin wedding

Elegant simplicity. That's how I would describe Zac and Rachel's intimate, backyard wedding in August. They decided together what they valued in the celebration of their marriage and followed through on those things thoughtfully and intentionally. Their ceremony and dinner celebration took place at the beautiful home of Rachel's parents in Hubertus, WI with 20 members of their immediate family, the Pastor and his wife, and Chad and myself. What a true honor to be included to capture this special occasion! 

I am SO excited to share these highlights from their wedding day...

Kyle + Samantha | A sentimental Wisconsin wedding

July 26, 2014 will forever be a date that marks the holy union of Kyle and Samantha in marriage—a public statement of their love for each other and their continuing commitment to support each other no matter what life may bring. For most couples, the vows they recite on their wedding day have the potential to seem "far off" like promises that will be relevant eventually. For Kyle and Samantha, the reality of the words they vowed to one another was true in that very moment.

Jason + Cortney | Wisconsin Wedding with Camp Traditions

This very special wedding day for Jason and Cortney was laced with laughter, love, and Camp traditions, making for one of the most unique [and entertaining!] celebrations we've been a part of. Although rain drizzled throughout most of the day, not a single smile was withheld. Plus, it was brought to our attention later that a beautifully vibrant double-rainbow was displayed in the Wausau skies after their Marriage Ceremony. A sure sign of double blessings!

You'll love to read this story and check out the beautiful image highlights from their day...

PJ + Sarah | A lovely, pink Illinois wedding

Gorgeous wedding details in shades of pink, lacy touches, and overjoyed family and friends surrounded PJ and Sarah on their wedding day at Elmhurst College. The architecture of Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel made for a picturesque backdrop and setting for their ceremony. The location was extra special because Sarah was attending Elmhurst during the time she fell in love with PJ. We couldn't have asked for a better forecast, either—just a tiny bit of rain in the morning, ensuring good luck for the couple and lush greenery for later in the day. You Name It Events added their flair to this celebration, too, ensuring a flawless look and flow of events. 

So many memories were made throughout the whole day, including the dance floor at Drury Lane later that evening! These two families were a joy to be around and they sure know how to throw a party. Chad and I were truly honored to capture the first chapter of PJ & Sarah's married love story.

I am SO excited to share these highlights from their beautiful wedding day...
