MILWAUKEE WEDDING ON FILM | LAUREN & CAMERON by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

If there were ever such a thing as a perfect wedding, Lauren & Cameron's glamorous celebration at the Turner Hall Ballroom would be right up there!! When we think back to Lauren & Cameron's wedding day in August, we can't help but smile! The two of them, their family and bridal party all have an energy that was undeniably contagious. It made their wedding an absolute joy to be a part of, and boy did we feel lucky that they chose us as their photographers!! And best of all? Aside from all of the vibrant color, pretty florals and genuine laughter were two amazing people with the biggest hearts imaginable. Lauren & Cameron have always been naturals in front of our cameras. Their optimistic & carefree spirits seem to jump out of every photograph, and that is just one of the reasons that we couldn't be more excited to share their wedding with you!! Get ready for so many loving and adorable glances and one of the most beautiful couples ever, inside & out :)

Love | K&B

WISCONSIN WAFFLE WEDDING | EDITORIAL SHOOT WITH A.STYLED EVENT & EVOLUTIONS IN DESIGN by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

With permanent smiles written across our faces, last week we posted a little preview of our excitement over a sweetly styled shoot with Anna of A.Styled Event. The inspiration behind this intimate brunch wedding came about earlier this year as Anna & I chatted through our computers on a snowy morning, surely in our pajamas and with coffee in hand. Apparently we were hungry and ready for wedding season to begin, as we were dreaming of sweet details and hints of maple syrup! ;) After months of sharing ideas back & forth like giddy schoolgirls, our inspiration shoot came to with help from an incredible team of WI wedding pros! Taylor Rae created the most perfect place cards, menus and calligraphy for the invitations, which were designed by Anna's husband Paul! Randy of Evolutions in Design completely blew us away with a truly stunning floral centerpiece, bouquet & bout. Jaxie shared her sweet talent, as our bride wore a custom designed birdcage veil and hair piece. Anna brought this shoot to life and created more elements than we can possibly begin to describe -- a bunting cake topper & handmade polka dotted napkins, oversized pillows, gold touches & more!!!

So, here you have it. A beautiful field setting. The perfect mix of cozy and lovely. A casual and romantic yet inviting picnic style celebration. Hints of fresh fruit & sweet treats. An adorable bride & groom. We hope that brides are able to find a bit of inspiration from the details and ideas that Anna poured into our brunch wedding! A huge thank you to all of the incredible vendors & friends who brought this shoot to life!! We had a absolute blast photographing every piece of it.  For us, the icing on the cake was having our waffle wedding featured the lovely Southern Weddings Blog!

On this cool fall morning, we are thrilled to post many of our favorite images from a shoot that truly set our hearts on fire! And yes, we're in our pajamas ;)

Love | K&B

FEATURED ON SOUTHERN WEDDINGS | WAFFLE BRUNCH INSPIRATION EDITORIAL SHOOT by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

Oh my goodness!!! Where do we even begin in sharing our excitement about this inspiration shoot with you?! Earlier this year on a very chilly winter day, Anna of A.Styled Event and I were chatting and dreaming up gold, peach & coral loveliness... and before we knew it, a styled shoot was in the making! Not a bad way to spend a snowy morning working from home in your PJ's, if you ask us ;) As we let our minds and hearts explore all of the directions this shoot could go, we knew a few things to be true: we wanted to work with an awesome creative team to bring this shoot to life, sweet treats & pretty florals were a huge must, and it needed to be something different. With the help of so many incredible talents, we photographed a lovely waffle wedding in early June amidst happy dances and squeals of excitement!! A HUGE thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Randy from Evolutions in Design for his ridiculously awesome talent (seriously, how amazing are these florals!!), Jaxie for sharing one of her darling custom made birdcage veils, and Taylor Rae whose calligraphy brought so much charm!!

Make sure you take a peek at A.Styled Event!! Anna is one of the sweetest & most genuine people we know, we are SO proud to call this lady one of our closest friends! Anna & her husband Paul not only planned this shoot's location & each one of the stunning details (and did we mention that Paul designed the paper goods?!) -- but they also transformed themselves into "bride" and "groom" once again :) It is no secret that they are two of our very favorite subjects to photograph, aside from Parker of course ;)

And to the sweet ladies behind Southern Weddings Magazine, thank you thank you thank you for sharing our gem on your blog today!! Anna & I both admit to being slightly southern at heart, and we are giddy with excitement! Give Southern weddings blog a little visit to see more maple syrup sweetness :)
