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

Jen & Phil buy an apple orchard and get married. It’s perfect really.

Phil & Jen get married in Bayfield!!! They are very ambitious but still very normal people. (Normal is good. I promise.) According to me. In one months time they moved & bought a house in Washburn, Wi, bought a apple orchard outside of Bayfield, & got married. That’s a lot man, that’s a lot. I hadn’t met them before the wedding but I knew I would like them cause they sent a photo & Phil had a beard. Dudes with beards are usually awesome. Right? I think so.

On my drive up to the Wisconsin North there was already snow!! It was crazytown. I drove up on Oct 24th. Like I said-Crazy town!! The weather turned out to be “hey, this isn’t so bad”. We got to go to Jen & Phil’s apple orchard for photos & then to the Lake Superier water. It’s really a dream come true. There was the prefect amount of inappropiate jokes from groomsmen. The gals were a delight. An all around great day!!

oh & then the most amazing thing happened during the toasts. The toasts are usually one of my favorites of the evening. But this was magical. The best lady bridesmaid, who is clearly not any type of professional singer, sang a whole song about her BFF Jen to some famous song. Jen- what was the song? It was a delight. Everybody was happy. I know this cause I looked around and saw it.

oh, & I’m pretty sure I heard Phil doing some Chicken dance trash talking. He danced to it. He loved it.

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.

Noel & Jason :: August 17, 2013. it’s a wedding. it’s cute. of course.

Noel & Jason are nice & normal. Which is so great. I see them at the bar sometimes and they are nice and normal. I also have this pet peeve thing when people want to be weird. Makes me crazy. I will save all this for another blog post. Just real quick though–I’m sorry to be the one to let you know that you are not that weird.

I know Jason from doing photos for the Isthmus and also when I see him in the world he is a delight to talk to. I got to know Noel after booking their weeding and how lucky am I. Very. The wedding was at the Olbrich gardens and the reception at the Olin Park. Olin Park might be my new favorite reception site.  In between the wedding & reception we stopped down at the Great Dane for photos and a beer break. Everyday should have a mid afternoon beer break.

Noel & Jason love all their friends. I know this from watching them at their reception. I like that.

The weather was great. The people were nice. Perfect Day.

July 25, 2012 :: Cynthia & Justin!!!

I really love it when Justin & Cynthia get married. This wedding was great & perfect. Lawn games, music, and a DIY bar. I’ve known Cynthia for a couple years and she’s one of the nicest & easy going gals I know. Just goes with it–pleasant & nice. This is exactly how the wedding felt. No big to do’s. She did do a dress change from the wedding to reception-that was her diva moment. HA!

The bands that played at the wedding were delightful. Justin was looking very handsome in his suit. Shane gave a funny speech. The twice baked pototes from the 4&20 were delicious. The IPA a friend made was lovely. All the friends were looking super cute. Best day ever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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
