EMMA & ALEX | CAMROSE HILL FARM WEDDING

Gosh, Emma & Alex, where to begin?  It was truly one of those wedding days where everything was perfect.  Sure, it rained.  A lot.  But, the bride and groom embraced it.  It was one of those days when I was driving home, giddy, with a huge smile on my face, because I truly felt so honored to work with such amazing people.  I got big hugs when I left, not only from Emma & Alex, but from members of the wedding party, and the entire group and their families really made me and my crew feel so welcomed.  The entire day was just joyful.

It was also beautiful!!  The bride and groom put so much love into this wedding day.  So did all the vendors:
Coordinator: Marissa from Wonderful Day Weddings
Venue & (seriously spectacular) Florals: Camrose Hill Flower Farm
Bride’s gown: Jenny Packham from L’atelier Couture
Invites: Chelsea Pectaja
Catering & Cakes: Deco

Congrats Emma & Alex!  I am so happy for you as you begin this new chapter in your lives.  (With your adorable pup Roy!)

SUSAN & ERIC | BARN WEDDING IN WISCONSIN

Susan & Eric were married on a perfect day in May on a private farm in Butternut, Wisconsin.  My trusty side kick, Whitney, accompanied me to this wedding, and we were so excited to make the drive up north.  Northern Wisconsin is just beautiful- there’s something about the woods and the calm serenity.  I love it!  As we approached the farm a series of handcrafted signs led the way, until finally we spotted the gorgeous red barn in the distance… What an amazing spot to become husband and wife!!

The bride and groom planned the most fantastic day filled with special moments, a unique ceremony, and fun and vibrant personal details.  I had tears in my eyes during the ceremony, and it was especially touching that Susan’s dad was able to meet her at the entry of the barn, and escort her down the aisle.  Susan is the youngest in a big family of 8 siblings, and the last to get married.  Her dad wasn’t sure if he would be able to walk down the aisle, but he joined Susan and gave her and Eric big hugs at the altar!  Both sets of parents blessed the rings before the bride and groom placed them on each other’s fingers.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed sweets and lemonade on the lawn, before we headed to Norwood Pines Supper Club in Minoqua for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing.

I’d be remiss not to mention my amazing friends, Kelsy & Butch, a husband and wife film photography duo from Wausau, Wisconsin.  Kelsy is Susan’s niece and one of her matrons-of-honor, and introduced me to her sweet aunt.  You can catch photos of Kelsy & Butch below! Butch is the one holding the polaroid camera!  :)  Thanks also to Evolutions In Design for the stunning florals, and Bob Holl, who provided many laughs and entertainment as the MC and DJ at the reception.

Congratulations to the happy couple!  I hope for you a life of bliss, love and adventure!!  Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day!

JENNA & CHRIS | ENCHANTED BARN WEDDING

Jenna and Chris were married at the gorgeous Enchanted Barn in Hillsdale, Wisconsin. The bride & groom reside in NYC, but wanted a wedding that was decidedly “country” and I don’t think they’re could’ve picked a better location. It was a chilly fall day, in late October, but the sun peeked out during our photos and it was warm and cozy inside the barn!

ASHLEY & JOSHUA | FALL WEDDING ON FILM

Ashley & Joshua were married on a chilly fall day in rural southwest Minnesota. We started the day at Ashley’s parent’s farm house, where the girls prepped for the big day. Ashley wore her mother’s refashioned wedding dress from the 1980s, which was such a sentimental, beautiful touch. In fact, the entire day was filled with unique details, including Grandpa’s old classic Ford, the cake baked by Grandma and more. Not only that, but Ashley, Joshua and their families are such kind, genuine people. From the moment we stepped in the front door, we were treated like family, and everyone was so sweet and caring throughout the day. Ashley & Joshua, I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Enjoy the preview!



















Amanda - What a small world! My cousin is one of the bridesmaids. Beautiful wedding.

Helgi - I die!!!!! So, so beautiful!!!!
