Krista and Jonathan were wed on Saturday December 19.
With the wedding being later in the day, we suggested doing a “first look” where the couple sees each other prior to the ceremony in a private meeting. We’re thankful to the Westphal Mansion for allowing us to use their beautiful B&B, creating a space where this could occur.
The nuptials took place in the Fireside Room located at the Chandelier Ballroom in Hartford WI. The officiant, Rev. Christine Weidner delivered meaningful words that created a binding, loving, contract for now, and forever. The theme for this winter wedding, was created with blues, silver, white and grey, and crystals made the entire room sparkle. The snowflake ice sculpture accented with white roses through out the room, created a magic that was palpable when entering the room. Jane Kelly Floral of Wauwatosa, created the fairy tale setting.
The dinner was outstanding, The Chandelier Ballroom provided gourmet food for this event of 400 plus people.
Cake artistry by Aggies completed the fabulous meal.
David Van Rixel Productions provided the blue uplighting, the tunes and the beat which got everyone to their feet dancing.
We had a great time photographing this wedding and wish the couple the BEST for their future.

Jordan and Dan were wed yesterday at Big Bay Park, where the breeze and the shade made the temperature tolerable. Guests were seated out of doors to witness the nuptials of Jordan and Dan, facilitated by officiant Judith Kubish. A beautiful element to the ceremony was the passing of the rings, each guest held and sent out intentions for the couple, before the rings were handed off to them for the ritual. Ryan McIntyre provided the background music as the rings were passed and through out the ceremony. Jaimer Floral designed the bouquets and arrangements, giving the entire ensemble a look of summer. CAREY provided the limo service for the wedding party. The Reception took place at The Public Market, located in the historic Third Ward of Milwaukee. Twelfth Night DJ provided the MC service and rocked the night for all of the dancers.

The way to start out August is to have a beautiful wedding in a rural location, with all of the elements of elegance and fun. That’s exactly what Ashley and Josh planned, and it went the way they envisioned it. The sky was blue, the flowers were in bloom, the girls were beautiful, the guys were primed, and parents and guests were delighted to be a part of their day.
The ceremony took place, out of doors at the Serenity Hill Farm, the officiant was Trish Kalhagen, and the vows and unity ritual were beautiful. The extended family gathered around the couple to place colored pebbles in a large jar, representing all of their influence and love. These colorful pebbles will be kept in a jar to remind them of all the people that were a part of their marriage and life.
We wish Ashley and Josh a lifetime of happiness and prosperity. To view slideshow click here.
Under the glow of the PABST sign, and a blue moon, everyone partied down to celebrate the marriage of Dan and Claire.
The ceremony took place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, officiated by a close friend of the bride. Friends and family chuckled with the couple as the groom stumbled a bit repeating his vows, Claire however recited loud and clear the words repeated after Chris. The theme of the celebration was based on hops and brew. The colors of navy and pink gave a special July feel. It was a perfect day.
Sanger House Gardens provided some of the background for the portraiture.
Zach Beierle was the videographer.
Sound by Design rocked the tunes, Tory and Ian were on target all night.
CONGRATULATIONS to Dan and Claire, start writing the new chapter in your lives together.

Kari and John, were wed yesterday at the Miller Room at O’Donnell Park, Milwaukee WI. The weather was “iffy” considering the ceremony was to take place under a tent facing the beautiful lakefront. That did not bother our bride, Kari, used the downpour as an opportunity to catch her breath, take some nice pictures at the Marriott Courtyard, and start the ceremony after the rain. It passed quickly, and if you believe in Ole’ Wives Tales, that little hiccup of rain, means they will be rich.
I can tell you they are already rich, in love.
After the ceremony, the cocktails and dinner followed, a great meal provided by the Zilli catering group. Chris the DJ, rocked the house with the tunes for the evening, fireworks were expected later when a break would be needed from dancing.
Congratulations to this wonderful couple and their families, may they enjoy a lifetime of celebrations together.

There were tense moments watching the weather radar this past weekend, but miraculously the forecast was wrong, and the weather was fantastic. The wedding took place in Albany WI at the Little Sugar River Farm, a mid state vacation destination. The venue was charming, prairie flowers in bloom, and a tented structure housed the event. This location is close to New Glarus, home to great craft brewed beer, pour service was proved by a team from Bartender 608. Entertainment ranged from croquet, photo booth, bean bag toss, and outstanding music provided by “Extra Crispy Brass Band” of Milwaukee. The late evening music rocked the house with DJ Kosta, playing the tunes that everyone loved. Sparklers, fireworks, and a bonfire lit up the night.

A beautiful day in June, was the backdrop for the outdoor wedding of Sue and Steve. Attending the couple, were friends, and their children Cade and Hailey. The processional music was dance worthy, “Happy”. Sue and Steve danced a happy dance, even Diane and Joe, Sue’s parents, shook a tale feather as they strutted down the isle. Everyone was HAPPY.
The location was the gazebo setting at Country Springs Hotel, in Waukesha. The reception that followed was in the Meadowbrook Room, beautifully decorated for the occasion.

The weather was unpredictable, but their love and devotion was not.
Kaitlin and Aaron have spent numerous hours planning an event that will be remembered by all as one of the best parties ever. She spent time with details that made the venue, a Washington county barn, seem like a rustic country dream. Even though rain spoiled the outdoor setting for the ceremony, the celebration continued with the sun eventually peaking through the cracks of the barn weathered boards.
Congratulations to the newly wedded couple, enjoy the images and the slide show!
