We've known this lovely bride-to-be, Lily, for years and have adored her since day one. She's as sweet and fun as they come, and after photographing her brother's wedding we immediately felt like she was our little sister too. :) Did we mention Lily's Mom was Butch's middle school teacher!? The connections are truly endless in Door County (one of the many things we love about it)!!
Fast forward to last year when we noticed a certain handsome gentleman, Nick, appearing in photos more & more while Lily's joyful smile was getting brighter & brighter! Of course being the photo goofs that we are, we secretly crossed our fingers that when the time came, we might hear from her with exciting news... and we DID!!! :)
Lily & Nick's Door County engagement session fell on a beautiful evening in Sister Bay. If we're telling the whole story, storms were looming as we drove over from Wausau but they cleared just in time for us to have a beautiful sunset and romantic evening light... two of our favorite ingredients for a gorgeous engagement session! We started at the most charming coffee shop, Drink Coffee, where Lily & Nick had a giant cookie made with their wedding date. We loved capturing these two on their charming patio in bustling of Sister Bay! Next we made our way to Garden Gables, a stunning wedding venue owned by Lily's brother & his wife. Were we ever lucky photographers to spend time with Lily & Nick around this stunning property (where we had been hoping to photograph for over a year)! Finally, it was only fitting that this picture perfect couple would have a gorgeous sunset over the bay to top off an amazing evening of smiling around the county. :)
Lily & Nick, you could probably tell by the huge smiles on our faces all night, but we are already counting the days until your wedding next September and couldn't be more thankful we'll be there to photograph every moment!!
Love to you both, Kelsy & Butch
