Adam & Courtney | Milwaukee Wedding

3 comments

I’ve had this blog done for a while…. I didn’t know how to start it! I want to express my love to these two.. but the words just don’t exist yet. Since booking their wedding about a year ago, I have learned new things and made new forever friends. I am in love with their friendship and faith! I’ve also fell in love with Milwaukee!
SO… back to not knowing what to say…
On the third “I’ll sleep on it” night I came up with this:

What should I share about Adam and Courtney? The long open conversation at dinner the first day we met? When they introduced me to awesomeness of ricotta on pizza and Dirty chai? When Courtney was there to see my vulnerable side? Should I talk about the time we ran across a draw bridge with the buzzer sounding… ok.. I will stop about there…
How about letting the photos do the talking….

You are my sunshine… My only

Leave a reply

Whatever is happening in my world, in my country, in my community, among my friends, in my family, and my heart….  My soul finds rest in God alone… My salvation comes from Him.

I feel this needs to be known about me.

Also,

I would like to share some photos of my gifts, my challenges, my growth, my sunshine…

Thank you Diana from Lifelight for taking some time out to take these photos.

Corey and Laina Wedding

Leave a reply

Ahh! Simple, classic rustic, sweet wedding. High emotions and lots of family love. Perfect wedding day to kick off July.
It was an incredible wedding day.
Few of my favorites:
-It’s great to see the happy color of yellow!
– Corey and Laina are the perfect match… old souls
– The weather was perfect
– First time I had ever had a cake pop… oh yum
– Their names were painted on the barn just for the wedding. Such a great idea!
– The horses were un planned visitors but they were welcome!

- Favorite vendors! Cake Thyme and Smith’s flowers

Easy morning with the girls. And a little emotional at times with friends.

The guys went with suits from Banana Republic (one of my favorite stores). I loved the shoes here too!

I loved the toasts! The two best men fought to see who would go first and each delivered great toasts and the Matron of honor was super sweet! Little tearing going on! Love it when that happens.

I love these two! They are kind, fun, beautiful, and crazy talented! Probably the most talented couples I had the pleasure of photographing.

It was pretty much a perfect day to have a wedding.
SO many details and pretties that I called in back up from Mitch Haarer Photography.
Little farm wedding in mint and coral with rustic touches. While looking at these, don’t forget take a close look at the cake… oh my delicious…
