milwaukee-art-museum-wedding-001 With a soft color palette and modern lines in mind, Elise & Tyler designed the wedding of their dreams with lots of help from Elise's Mom, Jean, and an amazing team of creatives! The Milwaukee Art Museum absolutely blew us away with its grand beauty and refreshing walls of white. But more importantly, we were two very lucky photographers as we captured this fun and at ease couple's wedding day. Elise and Tyler are not only a gorgeous bride and groom, but an amazing couple to be surrounded by. The happiness they emitted was never-ending from the moment we arrived to our hugs goodbye and you could see in their eyes that they were so grateful for all of the friends and family who traveled to celebrate with them on their wedding day!

Our day with Elise & Tyler began with the ladies getting final makeup & hair touches and Elise slipping into her beautiful wedding gown (and stunning Manolo's!) in their own getting ready suite at the museum. We were even able to tag along as Elise's maid of honor delivered a special wedding day gift to her groom. From the look on Tyler's face, our guess is that he liked it. :)

The first look took place in a galleria completely overflowing with gorgeous light and white walls & floors everywhere you looked! Our hearts may have skipped a beat when Elise opened Tyler's gift to her - a brand new collar so they can pick out their first puppy and start growing their newly formed family of two! From that moment on, their smiles were painted on and we had a BLAST with their very charismatic wedding party! Inside the museum & out, Elise & Tyler and their stylish wedding party looked amazing and we were thankful to have lots of portrait time with them!

The entire wedding day was set in the Milwaukee Art Museum, but the transformation that took place from the moment the ceremony ended until their reception tables were glowing with candlelight was incredible!! Guests were whisked into another galleria for cocktail hour and an amazing guitarist serenaded everyone as they enjoyed Wisconsin treats and beverages. From a gorgeous ceremony white washed in radiant light and gorgeous florals to a reception celebration with linens, colorful up-lighting, centerpieces and never-ending thoughtful details that filled their reception, all of the friends and family of Elise & Tyler were in for a real treat!

We've been bursting at the seams to share Elise & Tyler's wedding photographs with the world! With think they are such wonderful people, and were an absolute JOY to photograph! Thank you two so much for trusting us to document your wedding day!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
