WAUSAU WI ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | ELLIE & ANDREW by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

wausau-wi-engagement-photography-001 Ellie & Andrew have such a fun and heartwarming relationship! They're supportive and loving in the way they adore & encourage one another, but also know how to pull out the laughs and have FUN!! We enjoyed every moment of their engagement session and were blessed with a gorgeous evening to capture them in Wausau. They brought along a vintage tandem bicycle and also packed a cozy picnic to enjoy in the field. Seeing their faces of pure joy as they cruised down a charming brick street with their legs flailing and smiles from ear-to-ear was a moment that we can picture them laughing about for years to come! After their bike ride we photographed Ellie & Andrew in a beautiful field with sunlight wrapped all around them. It truly was a perfect ending to a lovely evening spent with these two and we cannot WAIT for their Rothschild Pavilion wedding next May!! :)

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

Robin & John's wedding day was more beautiful than any words we could possibly use to describe it. In every direction, faces were smiling, friends & family were giving one another huge hugs & warm embraces, and the most heartwarming wedding day was being celebrated! Robin & John's gorgeous home and property on Wausau's West side served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding day. What better place to promise all your days to the one you love than your very own yard, surrounded by everyone you adore?

Randy and his amazing Evolutions in Design team played the role of wedding planner, stylist, coordinator, and of course, florist. Every inch of Robin & John's property was adorned with beautiful blooms, sweet treats, and cozy gathering spaces for their wonderful guests. After a delicious meal prepared by one of Wausau's finest, Michaels, the dance floor filled quickly and Stoney Acres Farm began preparations for mouth-watering late night brick-oven style pizzas on the patio!

Words cannot express how grateful we are for being invited into this family's celebration. The impression this family leaves with you is one of warmth, happiness, and love. Robin & John, thank you so very much for the absolute privilege of photographing your celebration!

Love | K&B
