The Osthoff Resort holds extra special meaning for Andrea & Eric. Not only did Andrea grow up spending time at the resort each summer, it is also the romantic setting of her & Eric's engagement!! The two of them were enjoying a luxurious race weekend in Elkhart Lake when Eric surprised Andrea with breakfast in bed, then sweetly delivered his proposal as they clanked their glasses. As we got to know Andy & Eric over the last year and spent time with them during their Chicago engagement session, we realized that this proposal couldn't have been any more perfect nor could it have been any more THEM!

As a team of triathletes who spend much of their time training, A&E worked that shared passion into their wedding celebration by sending out "race packet" inspired save the dates! In kraft & green hues, this adorably set the tone for Andy & Eric's garden-inspired outdoor wedding. :) Can you BELIEVE the stunning and well-thought out details that infused every inch of their celebration?!! We were genuinely blown away and there wasn't a vignette, hug, or moment of shared laughter that we captured without a giant smile on our faces! Andy created several DIY elements, and a huge thanks goes to Katie from Jayne Weddings for making every inch of Andrea & Eric's wedding so incredibly stunning & perfectly styled!!! Seriously, this woman is amazing!

With guests who traveled from around the world to be present on their wedding day, Andrea & Eric undoubtedly blew each one of them away by their celebration and made them feel SO appreciated. Eric's family owns Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Michigan, and their sweets made a deliciously elegant treat for all of their friends & family to enjoy!

Andy & Eric, we feel SO honored to have captured your beautiful day and truly cannot thank the two of you enough for welcoming us into your celebration as if we were family!! :)

Love | K&B
