Angela and Scott :: Camp Wandawega! :)

She sat on his lap, giggling…..they talked about how he had just flown over 24 hours to get from an off-shore oil drill to Texas to Wisconsin, and then a few more hours in the car to land at Camp Wandewaga to be with the love of his life! For engagement photos. DEDICATION and love my friends.

Angela and Scott are gentle and adorable. And they are SO in love! :) I spent the afternoon with them as we explored the nooks and crannies of Camp Wandawega, and each time I go back to this place, I’m captivated! :) This place is magical. It’s a rustic, camp-style, outdoor fantasy-land with perfect aesthetics and amazing details! :)

A perfect spot for an old boy-scout meets WI girl….don’t ya think?! :)

Kim and Micah :: colorful Wisconsin barn wedding

Everyone sat with tears in their eyes during the ceremony, as Kim’s Dad read journal entries written by her Mom from just before she had passed away, just a short year ago! She journaled about how much she loved her family, especially her two girls. She wrote about how she had met Micah, the endearing qualities that he had and how much she saw her daughter’s smile light up as she watch the two of them together. And she wrote about her amazing family and God-filled marriage with her husband; their bond with one another and her dreams and wishes for all of them before she passed! I found myself being pulled into her words; being captivated by her thoughtfulness and tender-heartedness towards her family!

In those moments, my camera didn’t matter…what mattered was the fact that Kim and Micah were being showered in words of truth and memory of her Mom! They were being blessed and loved through tears and laughter as her Dad read pages of wishes and notes for a happy future and amazing marriage! :) Then Micah’s parents came up and spoke some equally perfect words of truth and wisdom over them! :) Kim and Micah’s ceremony was one of the most fulfilling ceremony’s I have ever witnessed; not only were they surrounded by supportive family and friends watch them share vows and speak promises to one another but they it felt as though they were being hugged with a GIANT bear hug as we watched the ceremony! :) It was amazing! God-filled group songs were sung, heart-felt vows were recited and joyful tears and smiles were on everyone’s face (including mine)! :) WOW!

The rest of the day, spent at the Barn at Harvest Moon, was full of hugging, yummy kabobs, artisan chocolates, handmade ice cream toppings (from the talented bride), family group photos and a sparkler exit! :) This Sunday wedding was laid back, colorful and full of Wisconsin barn charm! I don’t think that Kim and Micah could have asked for a better afternoon wedding! YAY for the blessed and happy newlyweds! :)

Wisconsin brunch wedding!

With the sun coming up over the rolling green, hills of the Wisconsin countryside, you take another sip of your morning mimosa before you slip into your dress! The cool, morning air fills the room as the breeze flows through the windows….and horses whinny outside for their morning breakfast! :) With fresh squeezed orange juice, bacon cupcakes, mini quiches, lattes, and fresh fruit, the brunch is getting set on the tables upstairs….as you walk out to pledge your promise to your husband in front of the warm, morning sun rays and guests sipping hot coffee! :)

Can you imagine?! :) Doesn’t this sound wonderful (kind of a dream come true wedding in my opinion)! :) A handful of vendors put this inspiration together this past May and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with how it came out. Soft colors, luscious textures and a beautiful, rustic setting were the highlights for me! :) With the bride adorned in a custom (GORGEOUS) lace dress from Monirose, hair/makeup from the talented Katie Mikels and amazing flowers from Dani at Studio Fleurette, I was NEARLY in heaven! :) OH—and the pup….aren’t you just in love with his, sweet, kind personality….he definitely wanted to snuggle! :)
