SARAH & SEAN - OUR SAVIOUR'S LUTHERAN CHURCH WEDDING CEREMONY AND WAVERLY BEACH RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I met Sarah three years ago and was over the moon when she asked me to photograph her and Sean’s wedding day. It was so great getting to know Sean and his family and revisiting Sarah’s.

Sarah and Sean opted for a wine mixing ceremony (Sarah picked her late mom’s favorite wine; also, the orchid pays tribute to her mom).

EMILY & ALEC - PLAMANN PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

When I book bridal couples via phone and don’t meet them until the day of their engagement session, I always laugh when I drive to meet them… it’s somewhat weird to drive up to a car and ask the people in it if they are ‘my couple.’ And, Alec and Emily were today’s couple… so totally in-love, adorable, and willing to do whatever it takes ;)

Can you believe that, at the beginning, Emily was slightly uncomfortable in front of camera?!!

I have never had a groom-to-be just pick up his bride without any direction… he went, whoosh, and there it was… another great photo.

Creating magical images can sometimes be met with raised eyebrows… like, ‘you two go around under those trees, and then sit in between all the brush,’ but then, this is what we get. :)

The day started with rainy clouds but ended with a beautiful sunny weather, an awesome couple, and a ton of laughter.

RACHAEL & JASON - PLAMANN PARK ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

The first time I met Rachael and Jason was on the day of their engagement session. Due to their busy schedules we were unable to meet prior, but let me tell you... I just LOVE them! They are just a perfect ying and yang of a couple!

In ten years of photographing in Appleton, this was the first time lilac bushes were perfectly in season for a shoot, making for a lovely background :)

Amanda & Luke - St. Pius X wedding ceremony and Grand Meridian reception photographer - Appleton, WI

Amanda and Luke make one of the sweetest couples I have ever met... Not only are they nice to people around them, but they are super caring and loving toward each other.

Bridal bling...

Grand-Meridian-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Plamann-Park-photos-_0001.jpg

What a great tradition... the bonnet came from the groom's side of the family.

Grand-Meridian-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Plamann-Park-photos-_0006.jpg

Luke wrote a little message to Amanda on the bottom of her wedding shoes... we all teared up.

The beginning of the ceremony was full of happy tears...

Grand-Meridian-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Plamann-Park-photos-_0011.jpg

After announcing their 'I dos'... the bridal couple had a moment in which Luke's wedding ring slipped and rolled all the way to the kneelers. A moment everyone will remember! :) [see smile face in the photo... that's where the ring rolled to]

A short stop to spend a few moments with their furry baby.

The bridal photos took us to Plamann Park in Appleton.
