Laura and Russ’ Lake Geneva Wedding

Today, we’re headed to Laura and Russ’ Lake Geneva wedding. Their wedding ceremony and reception in Lake Geneva was held on a beautifully landscaped property providing the most unique details including a farm, animals, and a outdoor terrace. Laura and Russ’ Lake Geneva wedding had some rustic shabby chic DIY wedding elements such as the bride and bridesmaid created hair pieces, boutonnieres, and mason jar candles. The mason jars were craftily used to adorn the wedding aisle and after ceremony cocktail area. Ending their wedding day but igniting their future Laura and Russ walked underneath sparklers lit by family and friends celebrating a perfect couple’s love.

Jenny + Tom’s Lakewoods Resort Wisconsin Wedding

Jenny and Tom’s Wisconsin wedding took place on a beautiful day overlooking The Lakewoods Resort in Cable, WI. Their Wisconsin wedding was well-documented by Denise Mack from Denise Mack Photography.

Denise tells us, “Jenny and Tom were wed among the swaying trees and lakeside breeze at The Lakewoods Resort on June 25, 2011. Sunshine, glistening waters, dragonflies and gorgeous decor’ – it couldn’t have been more picturesque! Many personal touches throughout their Wisconsin wedding enhanced each of the memorable moments that evolved to complete the day.”

Check out out their photos below!

Denise says, “With great enthusiasm, I seem to be appealing to the appropriate crowd: those who wish to have these priceless memories captured using a style based in realism but featuring improvised compositions and artistic flair. And, now more consistently, those who share in my love of nature! I tell my clients who have hired me for outdoor weddings – whether in the garden, lakeside, or on the farm – that I am truly in my element when I get to artistically capture moments-in-time encompassing my passion for both nature, and wedding celebrations; it’s the best of both worlds combined! Many thanks to Jenny and Tom for this fun and exciting opportunity.”

Pretty Bride, Happy Groom: Wisconsin Wedding!

We’re head over heels in love with these amazing fall wedding photos captured by Wisconsin wedding photographer Andy, from Andy Stenz Photography.  Before you gaze your eyes upon these wedding photos, Andy lets us in on some details about Amanda and Tom’s wedding day.

autumn wedding

Andy tells us,

“Amanda and Tom were married at Amanda’s life long family church. One of the things I loved most about the day was the perfect fall weather. The perfect day, was about 70 degrees and the leaves were at their peak color. We had a great time shooting outside and could have spent hours doing so. Amanda and Tom were very trusting of me and were able to connect to each other well in the presence of the camera (not be shy or distracted) which made for very intimate photos.  They had put together their own tunes list for the reception and a friend, who was a musician and good as an MC, ran the computer. So they saved themselves the cost of the DJ. I haven’t seen that always work out well, but it did for them.”

We are proud to feature Jamie M Swanson Photography, based in the great state of Wisconsin.

Jamie tells us, “Samantha and Nick were married near Slinger, WI this past October. Samantha is a true Do-It-Yourself bride: she created many, many aspects of her wedding day. Every little detail, from the invitations to the flowers, was decided and put together by Samantha and her family! It was great to know that the details photos I was taking of all her hand-made items would be extra special since she had put in so much time creating them. Even Nick, the groom, shared in the fun by carving the pumpkin for their head table.”
