Rock Garden wedding - Green Bay, WI - Samantha & Andrew

This last Saturday I photographed one of the most calm brides (and grooms) ever. Cool, collected, tear-eyed and oh, so happy. It was a pleasure to have worked with Samantha and Andrew.

Family and friends came to Green Bay from all over to help celebrate their union. It was perfect. 

Bridal details....

The 'game plan'

Andrew and Samantha opted on not seeing each other, so the short walk down the aisle was filled with tons of tears and smiles.

Some churches have cool reflecting surfaces... This one included :)

On, Wisconsin!

After the formal photos at the church, even the parents came with us to Pamperin Park. 

You would pose them (photo on the left), turn around for one minute, and turn to this (photos on the right) :)... They were a little sneaky like that!

A radiant bride!

We snuck away for extra photos...

The reception was at the Rock Garden...

Not only was the cake pretty and yummy, it was standing on a custom 'tray'. Andrew's grandpa made it just for the lovely couple.

I do have to say that I didn't expect anyone, especially Sam, to smash a cake. It was very surprising to me and I wonder if Andrew had ANY idea. :)

Toasts were heartfelt. The bridal party did a wonderful job.

But one of the best speeches came from Sam's dad!

Singing would 'make' Sam and Andrew kiss, so I think guests took that to heart. There was a lot of kissing that night!

A perfect gust of wind!
