PRITZLAFF MILWAUKEE WEDDING | ANNA & ROB by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

pritzlaff-milwaukee-wedding-photographer-01 A love of sailing runs deep in both of their families. So when Anna & Rob became students at UW-Madison, joining the sailing team came naturally! As luck would have it Rob was assigned to sail with Anna; fast forward several years later after dating long-distance, and that nautical theme continued when Rob proposed to Anna at Atwater Beach in Milwaukee. Little did we know when we suggested taking wedding party portraits at that same beach, that it was an absolutely fitting place to visit on their wedding day. :)

As a couple, Anna and Rob are adventurous, charming, warm, and adorable!! Working with Janelle from Evenement Planning, they dreamed up a bright & happy wedding celebration in Milwaukee's Historic Pritzlaff Building. With  joyful yellow blooms from Impressions by Esther in every direction and the amazing David Rothstein Band bringing energy to their dance floor, Anna & Rob's celebration was overflowing with smiles and friends & family who couldn't WAIT to hit the dance floor!!

Anna & Rob,  we enjoyed every minute of your wedding and cannot thank you enough for choosing us to capture your wedding day! We hope you had a wonderful honeymoon and are loving making your new place in NY a "home" as Mr & Mrs :)

Love,

Kelsy & Butch

ROTHSCHILD PAVILION WEDDING | ELIZABETH & CHAD by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

rothschild-pavilion-wedding-001 Elizabeth & Chad planned the wedding of a lifetime. With a rustic vintage theme, they thoughtfully planned every element of their DIY wedding. From countless window panes and doors to their family's barn boards and milk bottles from the bride's Dad's personal collection, it's clear that their wedding was a labor of love that came together seamlessly! They chose the Rothschild Pavilion as their canvas and splashed it with hues of orange & green, endless amazing appetizers from the Back When Cafe, and plenty of wine & cheese for their guests to enjoy all night long! Not to mention, gorgeous florals by Design Lab.

Being a part of this day was such a privilege and an absolute BLAST! Elizabeth & Chad have such a fun relationship and we immediately felt like we were photographing friends. Surrounded by nearly 300 of their friends & family, they were completely beaming all day long!!

Thank you so much for inviting us into your celebration, Elizabeth & Chad! We know the two of you have a lifetime of laughter, love, and fun ahead of you.

Love, Kelsy & Butch

GREENWOOD HILLS WAUSAU WEDDING | JODI & BRENT! by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

Thank you, Style Me Pretty, for featuring Jodi & Brent's wedding!! :)

From the moment we arrived to Jodi's parents house the morning of her & Brent's wedding, she was non-stop smiles and overcome with emotion. Taking in every moment of her & Brent's wedding day and letting each part sink in. Even moments before Jodi slipped into her beautiful lace gown, she was saying "oh my gosh, I'm about to put on my wedding dress!!" :)

Jodi wrote three special letters to be shared on her wedding day – one for her Mom, one for her Dad, and one for her soon-to-be husband. Before heading off to the church she shared a moment with her Mom, and then her Dad, to deliver the letters. She simply wanted them to have a reminder of how much she loves them both – one of the sweetest gestures we've ever seen! Shortly after arriving to St. Mary's, Jodi & Brent also shared a moment before their ceremony. With a modern take on tradition, Brent kept his eyes closed so that he wouldn't actually see his lovely bride until she walked down the aisle. They were able to comfort one another and share a quick embrace before taking time to read the letters they had written for each other. These moments were so emotionally powerful and we felt incredibly lucky to capture such true love!!

Jodi & Brent poured every ounce of themselves into planning their wedding day! Nearly every detail was lovingly created, designed and styled by the two of them – with just the right amount of help from sweet friends & family members! Paired with stunning florals by Fawn of Inspired by Nature, their celebration was absolutely wonderful!! Every single table at their Greenwood Hills Country Club tented white reception had an entirely unique centerpiece, and each one told a part of Jodi & Brent's love story. From shared passions (the Packers & photography, to name a few) to tales of their loved ones and cute little ways they've grown together as a couple, Jodi & Brent expressed what makes them them in such a creative way! And, might we say, a way that we absolutely adored photographing!! :)

After photographing Jodi & Brent in the blue classic car they rode away in post-ceremony and fun pictures with their wedding party, we were also able to sneak Jodi & Brent out for a few evening portraits. We were COMPLETELY blown away by the gorgeous light we were blessed with during this time!!! Being that Jodi & Brent are photographers as well, they were up for any & all picture-taking-time and were excited right along with us about the crazy-beautiful sunset shining over the greens!! Such a romantic setting, and they ROCKED it! :)

Jodi & Brent's love is so apparent. You could spot the two of them in the middle of a giant crowd and know that they are not only meant to be together, but they're also very much in love! Brent's sweet words and thoughtful gestures light Jodi up & bring out her biggest smiles, and she has cute little ways of making smiles creep across his face, too. :) As a couple, these two are not only a wonderful bride & groom whose wedding day we were given the absolute honor of photographing, they are also great friends of ours! Jodi & Brent, we couldn't possibly be more happy for the two of you!!! Thank you SO much for choosing us to capture your beautiful day! :)

Love | Kelsy & Butch
