Mariah & George! oxox

Mariah & George! I shot so many fun 2013 weddings that I should be blogging!!! I’m going to try to get up as many as I can these cold cold months when i’m not as busy. I really loved this Mariah & George wedding–they got married at a farm about 45 minutes outside of Chicago. While driving out there I did not expect there to be such a hidden gem amongst the Panara Breads and Starbucks. Then Boom!!! surprise! Cute little farm!!! Mariah & George are friends with my gal pal Sopha. We shoot the wedding along with another one of their photo friends Prince. It felt a bit paparazzi but it was fun hanging out with the photo team.

Mariah & George did a great job making their wedding soooo beautiful! And And And they are cute & crazy in love. What else could I ask for? Nothing. That’s right. Nothing. oxox

it’s a Lydia & Simon wedding yo.

Lydia and Simon! I was looking forward to their wedding all summer. ASHLAND WISCONSIN I LOVE YOU!  Of course when I signed up for it I imaged I’d get there like a week early and do all kinds of outdoor hiking and canoeing. That didn’t happen. I worked the day before & drove up the day of their wedding.  The first thing I do when I get to Ashland is stop by the water and take her photo. (her? probably–it seems like cars & maybe bodies of water could be gals.??) It was a rainy & windy one!

I know these two cause they are friends with my sister & bro in law & live right down the street. Mostly I have played the train game with them & I love it. It’s really called Ticket to Ride. Play this game. Oh & I see them at the Black Cat coffee shop every time I’m there clicking away. I saw them there the day after their wedding.

Lydia & Simon live in a really cool old school house or possibly it’s an old nunnery. The tent was set up right outside. And of course they went with a space theme. At least it was the backdrop to the ceremony. It’s pretty amazing. Right before the ceremony was going to start the sun came out–I think I did a cartwheel I was so excited.

The highlights of the wedding (according to me) were the fruit infused vodka drinks, hats worn at the wedding, family photos! (yes! family photos turned out really fun!), and the delicious food! My first doughnut wedding. Lydia & Simon are a good team. A perfect team.

07.06.2012 :: Krista & Ryan :: rooftop weddings are delightful.

Ok, I have some really good plans for my wedding. I thought I had everything all worked out and then I went to Ryan & Krista’s wedding on top of the Children’s Museum and everything has changed. It was amazing! The coolest location/space ever! trees on a rooftop! I love it! There is a little field of basil planted up there. I may have left with a pocket full of basil. i’m kidding.

I’d never been to the Children”s museum before and damn girl!!! that place if fuuuunnn!!! They do this fun event for adults once every two months where they open up the museum in the evening for adults and & can get beers and wine and play with all the kid stuff! I’m going to sures! OH, it’s called Adult Swim. Google it. I’ll see you there.

The rooftop where the wedding/reception took place was already perfect- Krista & Ryan added some nice little touches as well! I love a really pretty wedding-like the cute stuff they add- and I also love a low key wedding. This wedding was both.  It was one of the smallest weddings I’ve shot which made it feel really intimate. It also made me feel a little like the paparazzi-I don’t feel like I stalked people too much! That was good. The beautiful food was made by the hip Underground kitchen dudes.

I’ve known Ryan & Krista for awhile–I mostly see them at biking & drinking events. If there is an event that involves drinking + biking there is a 94% chance I will see them. They are a great couple and think they compliment each other really well. I wonder if they will think it’s weird I’m writing that. I’m pretty sure i’m right though.

Oh man, did Krista wear the cutest little polka dotted dress or what?? yes she did. & Ryan is looking very handsome in his vest. more dudes should wear cute vests. I call.

Congratulations guys! kick some ass being married. ox sv

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MARCH! I WILL EAT YOU MARCH!

MARCH-PHOTO-A-DAY!!!!

ok, I don’t know why i named march “march! i will eat you march!” but it just felt right. Yeah, March was pretty good. I put this month in order of the days, which is pretty fun.  I didn’t include everyday in the blog. Some of the photos are boring.

It seems like I might be doing the same things over & over. Scrabble & Bingo!! I love scrabble & bingo apparently. I am going to quit going to bingo for the summer months (& play volleyball instead!!) but i’ll be back when it’s cold again. I will play scrabble all summer. Let me know when you want to play. oxox

OH! the most exciting thing happened in March! My little sister had a baby! She’s not that little, she’s 30. The baby is little though. She had a cute cute cute little girl and named her Zoe Zadie. ZZ baby face is what i think i will call her. Theresa & Gary are going to be good at it! I’ve been trying to shoot more weddings in the Bayfield area so I can hang out with them more and also because it is magical in northern Wisconsin. Oh, they live in Ashland, WI. You should go there!!!

What else happened in March, it was kinda long ago. I’m slacking on my blogging! Engagement photos, book club, motorcycle & bike rides, sexy time photos for kristen (you should get some done! contact me!), marigolds at the Arboretum, & sushi at the Muramoto. Oh, I tried to not drink for a week. I didn’t drink for 5 days. Which is very close to a week.

I bought a lawn chair at a garage sale. I love this lawn chair. It made it in 3 photos this month. If you come over to my place you can sit in it. or I can bring it to you. Either is fine with me.
