This lovely Wisconsin wedding took place in a pioneer church, dating back to 1868; and the reception was held at a family farm surrounded by rolling fields and the bride’s uncle’s vintage car collection. Even with the mid-ninety temps and high humidity, this was such a fun wedding to photograph. And it’s worth mentioning, the bride’s cousin hands down gets the award for best dance rendition of “Billie Jean”….we’re talking giving Michael a run for his money. :)
It would make sense that it hadn’t rained for 100 days….and then the moisture decided to make an appearance for this lovely couple’s day. Luckily it cleared just in time to still have the gorgeous rooftop reception. And the sky that was left after the rain was pure magic.
These two wanted just a simple celebration, with a ceremony set in the gorgeous pines of Goldwater Lake. It was short, sweet, and oh so beautiful.
These two were so dang fun to work with! They brought their own music (brilliant!) and just had a great time. It made taking their photos so easy, and I love how fun and candid these images turned out!
Small, backyard celebrations have officially become my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that with this one every detail was so beautiful, and the couple are actually good friends of ours. Plus, holy crap are they photogenic together! And as an added bonus….man can they dance! Gotta love a cowboy wedding. ;)
This wedding was small and simple….but definitely not short on beautiful details. I also think they picked the one non-windy day of the entire spring, which definitely helped me!
These two were struggling to decide between doing a natural background, or a more urban setting….so we just did both. I love the contrast of the two different looks! Can’t wait for their early fall wedding, at one of my favorite venues!
To say this wedding didn’t go according to plan would be a bit of an understatement. It was supposed to take place on a beach in Puerto Rico….but unfortunately Hurricane Maria derailed those plans. And also left them stranded there for two weeks unable to get out. So for this being their plan b a couple months later…you would never know it. They were even able to bring a bit of the beach here to AZ. :)
Theme weddings can sometimes be tricky….if the theme isn’t uniform throughout the wedding, it can come off as just confusing, and a little all over the place. Well this roaring 20’s themed wedding was perfectly executed, down to every detail….even on the guests. It made for a beautifully different wedding that was so fun for me to photograph!
I’ve been lucky to have multiple backyard weddings this year that have proven you don’t necessarily need a big, fancy venue to have a beautiful day. This was definitely the case for this wedding….it was low key, simple, and oh so lovely. Doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom were a ridiculously striking couple too. :)
