We chimed in on Erin & John's wedding day just as Erin was just about to slip into her truly stunning Vera Wang gown. She shared a heartfelt moment with her Dad before being escorted by a classic Door County Trolley to Sunset Beach Park in Fish Creek, where an especially handsome groom awaited her. :) Erin & John's bayside ceremony was blessed with abundant sunshine, live music, and the support of all of their loved ones. After soaking in the rays as they became husband & wife, Erin & John snuck away to the Fish Creek Marina where we were in heaven photographing this gorgeous new Mr & Mrs!!
At About Thyme Farm, guests enjoyed cocktail hour and passed hors d'oeuvres on the lawn while Lily & Ben Larsen set the scene for an amazing night with their talented duo of live music! While Erin & John made their way from hugs to laughs to smile-filled conversations, their amazing wedding planner, Chandra from Door County Event Planners, put the finishing touches on a timeless, beautiful barn celebration awaiting them just footsteps away. Heartfelt toasts, sparkly tear-filled eyes and sweet little moments between Erin & John as well as delicious food from Alexander's led right into one of the most perfect Door County sunsets we have ever captured and, from there, their dance floor went from 0 to 100 in record time! :)
Erin & John, we couldn't be more thrilled for the two of you and are so honored to have photographed your wedding celebration! Hoping we'll be able to get together soon now that you're so close, and we're wishing you a wonderful lifetime together as husband & wife!
Love, Kelsy & Butch

Everywhere we turned we found beautiful, meaningful, and timeless. Sarah & Jeff planned a wedding day that was perfectly thought out for not just them, but also for all of their guests who were flying in from around the country. Of course, there's not much you can do when smoke fills the sky in Chicago and guests must scramble, reroute their flights, and find any form of transportation possible to be there for Sarah & Jeff's wedding. Most made it in time to see the I do's and, for the few who weren't able to make it, we hope these photographs are able to tell enough of the wonderful story that was their wedding day.
Classic elegance is the phrase that comes to mind when we think of Sarah & Jeff and their University Club of Milwaukee wedding. Personal details like Sarah's grandmother's broach attached to her bouquet, Jeff & his groomsmen playing Texas hold 'em before the ceremony like they've probably done dozens of times, and Sarah's father, Ken, with the brightest smile and glossy eyes walking his daughter down the aisle to marry Jeff, are just a small part of what made their day so wonderful.
The University Club of Milwaukee was filled with gorgeous flowers & historic charm everywhere you turned, as well as golden chandeliers and matching chiavari chairs that warmed the room where Sarah & Jeff said I do. But, the way they loved each other all day long and the smiles on the faces of Sarah & Jeff's guests was enough to make their hearts full on the most memorable day of their lives! Not to mention their caring families, bridal party that was full of laughs, that magical sliver of a sunset we found at the end of their portrait time, or the band who had everyone on their feet immediately following the first dances.
Sarah & Jeff, thank you SO much for trusting us to document your memories on a perfectly beautiful Milwaukee, Wisconsin day! :)
Love, Kelsy & Butch
