Congratulations to Nicole and Wade! This couple put so much heart and soul into every last detail of this wedding. Here are just a few shots from throughout the day. I will most certainly post more once their wedding is fully edited. The details were just amazing. There were many stops on this wedding day, from downtown Elkhorn, to Lake Geneva, to the grounds around the Grand Geneva where the reception was held. Flowers by Treasure Hut Flowers. Video by Hunter Floyd. Hair and makeup by The Well Spa. Cake designed by the bride herself and executed by The Grand Geneva.
I seriously love this couple. They created the most amazing images... why? Because they weren't even worrying about me. They were completely in the moment, having the best day of their lives. That's the key to amazing photos my friends. Have a couple of drinks if you're tense. Loosen up! Have fun! It's your wedding! =) The rain was set to arrive by 2pm that day and we cranked out those photos just in time. Location: Geneva National Dress: Houghton "Cheyne" Flowers: Gia Bella Flowers
So I'm blogging this wedding in parts... because there are so many photo I want to share. Rachel is a good friend and has been through the wringer the past year with the passing of her mother Karen. Rachel did an amazing job of keeping her mother with us throughout the entire day. We laughed. We cried. But mostly we celebrated the way Karen would have. We start with some getting ready shots, the first look and wedding party photos..
Location: Horticultural Hall, Lake Geneva WI
I've known Rachel for a while now through riding horses so I was thrilled when she asked me to photographer her engagement and wedding! I really didn't think this session would happen. The radar looked pretty bad with storms rolling in. Even on the way there, just 5 min outside downtown Lake Geneva it was raining so hard I could barely see out the window. When I arrived at the lake front where we were meeting, a pocket of sunshine opened up! We had a good hour of shooting time and then went to grab some dinner. Our pocket of sunshine closed up and the storm continued. <3 <3 So perfect.
Such a cool session!! I first met Caitlin and Patrick a couple of years ago at Patrick's sister's wedding. So fun to work with this family again! Patrick is a pilot so where else would you take engagement photos than at the airport with his plane?!? So fun!
What a stunning bride. Loved everything about this wedding. So clean and fresh with light pink, white and blue. And so classic! This was a 4th of July wedding and the backdrop couldn't be any more perfect being on the pier at The Riviera with the beautiful boats and flags flying. Love love love.
