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 ;)

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 :)

Joyful, adorable & contagious. These are the first 3 words that come to mind when we think about Lauren & Cameron :) These two wear their emotions right on their faces, and it is impossible not to smile when you're around them!! Lauren is from Green Bay, Cameron is from Chicago, and they met 4 years ago while attending Wisconsin Lutheran College. Lauren's roommate was dating someone on the University soccer team, so she joined her to watch the boys practice and noticed a certain guy on the team with lime green shoes. With Lauren's curiosity at its peak, one thing lead to another and L&C were set up on a blind date. Four years later... they were still dating! Since their 4 year anniversary had just passed Lauren figured that if it didn't happen then, Cameron must not be proposing anytime soon. After the anniversary, to Lauren's surprise, Cameron's proposal came right around Thanksgiving weekend. His plans included cooking Lauren dinner and surprising her with a custom wine label... and of course she said yes!
One of the cutest tidbits about these two is that Lauren is a Packer fan and Cameron is a huge fan of their rivals, the Chicago Bears. When we asked Lauren how much of a Packer fan she is, she responded with a stone-cold serious "I bleed green & gold." Cameron is just as intense in cheering for his Chicago Bears, so football season can be an interesting time for the two of them! We love that they brought this competitive spirit to their engagement session and had so much fun working it into their engagement photos! L&C are planning a Milwaukee wedding this August and we are SO excited to be a part of their day!!

As a nursing student, Kirsten met Gene's sister who thought that she hands down must meet her brother, Gene. K&G ended up chatting on the phone for three hours!! Since Gene was living in Indianapolis at the time, Kirsten took a weekend trip to visit him with the mentality that if things weren't going as expected, she could always stay with her cousin ;) Lucky for the two of them, they hit it off right away and were engaged six months later! Truly, Gene bought Kirsten's ring on a Saturday and his sister wanted to see it so he brought it home with him for Thanksgiving weekend and then realized... what is the point in waiting any longer to put this on Kirsten's finger?! Of course she said yes, and we are SO excited to be a part of their Wausau wedding this August!
Kirsten & Gene are both super mellow and easy going with a great sense of humor, and we were pumped when they invited us up to Ontonagon MI (Gene's hometown!) for their engagement session on Lake Superior with s'mores, snuggling, and a perfect campfire on the beach!! :)
