This was my second VLB wedding. I have met Mr. and Mrs. VLB six years ago when photographing their daughter’s wedding.

Thank you, Cheyenne and Eric, for making me a part of your wedding. It is an honor to be able to photograph another VLB couple! It was lovely to see Eric’s family again and getting to know Cheyenne’s family and friends.

Dziekuje!

JACKIE & DREW - TJ'S HARBOR CEREMONY AND RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - OSHKOSH, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I met Jackie in 2014 at her sister’s wedding. I was so happy when Jackie told me she was getting married and wanted me to photograph her big day! I loved working with her then, and was looking forward to working with her on her wedding day!

Jackie&Drew-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Oshkosh-TJs-Harbor-outdoor-ceremony-reception-_0001.jpg

Visually, this wedding for me, was all about light contrast, reflections, sun rays, sunset, moon and everything in-between. Jackie’s keen eye for details and color made my job a breeze! For an example, just look at the invitation colors and patterns and the background… a perfect match… just like Jackie and Drew!

Jackie&Drew-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Oshkosh-TJs-Harbor-outdoor-ceremony-reception-_0008.jpg

Stacy asked the seamstress to sow in a heart into Jackie’s dress (the material came from Stacy’s bridesmaid’s dress and it was a little surprise of ‘something blue’).

Jackie&Drew-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Oshkosh-TJs-Harbor-outdoor-ceremony-reception-_0004.jpg

This awesome bride spent a lot of time on her wedding day details. She even made her own bouquet.

Bridal bling…

I have a lot of favorite photos from this wedding, but this is one of my all-time favorite getting ready shots.

Drew’s family flew in from all over the country. It was lovely meeting them all.

Yes, that’s the groom’s initial impression to seeing his bride for the first time… wow!

Can you guess how many mosquitoes I had to photoshop in each photo? Answer: A LOT! But, it still looks so lovely.

Jackie and Drew had the most amazing weather… sunny, warm, a little windy, amazing sunset and a beautiful moon!

Thank you, Jackie and Drew, for making me a part of your wedding. It was my honor photographing your beautiful day. Also, it was nice seeing Stacy and Zach, Cody, all of your family once again, and it was nice meeting Drew’s family.

Dziekuje!

LAURA & NATE - THE WATERS OF MINOCQUA CEREMONY AND RECEPTION - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I met Laura four years ago while photographing her brother’s wedding. So it’s needless to say I was very honored, when she reached out to me about her own wedding. It was so great to see the M family again!

Laura and Nate’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at her family’s vacation spot - The Waters of Minocqua. The eighty-two degree weather was highly unusual for this time of year and location, but that didn’t disheartened anyone from having an awesome time!

Laura and Nate are great parents to their two year old.

Thank you, Laura and Nate, for making me a part of your special day. It was great seeing everyone again and I’m kind of sad that Mr. and Mrs. M (Laura’s parents) ran out of their lovely children for me to photograph. :)

Dziekuje

PS. And, thank you, Kara (and Jake) for being some of my greatest advocates!

LISA & NICK - TRYBA'S SIMPLY COUNTRY BARN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

There is nothing better than photographing a super nice couple at a cool venue. When I met Lisa and Nick, I knew I would love to be their photographer! And, once they had mentioned Tryba's Country Barn, I knew it would be a great wedding.

Lisa&Nick-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-trybas-simply-country-barn-_0013.jpg

Loved Lisa's bridal details... so well paired with the country wedding theme.
