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).

Veronica and DJ’s wedding was the best way I could ever hope to start any wedding season.

Veronica and DJ got ready at the Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan.

RACHAEL & JASON - ST. JOHN SACRED HEART PARISH CEREMONY & BRIDGEWOOD RESORT HOTEL RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - SHERWOOD AND NEENAH, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I met Rachael and Jason for the first time just four days before their wedding day... and they are absolutely awesome! Fun, funny, totally in love with each other, in other words, an ideal couple! And, let's not forget to mention their family and friends!

RACHAEL & JASON -  ST. JOHN SACRED HEART PARISH CEREMONY & BRIDGEWOOD RESORT HOTEL RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - SHERWOOD AND NEENAH, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY_0027.jpg

Each wedding I try to come up with a 'different' way of photographing wedding details. St. John Sacred Heart Church has beautiful windows... I used them as the backdrops.

Rachael and Jason wanted to do a 'corner shot.' That's when the couple are in the same room, but choose not to see each other. The bridal room didn't have any good corners ;) so I had to get creative and use closet doors as the divider.

I have been photographing weddings for thirteen years and this is the first time when the bride and the groom sat in two different aisles. Although a little bit different, it created a different point of view during the ceremony.

DANIELLE & KEVIN - ST. BERNADETTE PARISH CEREMONY AND GRAND MERIDIAN RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI

Two worlds came together this past weekend in an union of a beautiful Wisconsinite and a handsome Irish-Chicagoan... And, what a day that it was!!

Gosias-Photography-St-Bernadette-ceremony-photographer-Grand-Meridian-reception-photos-Danielle-Kevin-Chicago-wedding_0008.jpg

Bridal detail...

I loved Danielle's shoes... classy Badgley Mishkas and whimsy Toms.

Danielle got ready at her parents' house in Appleton.

Laughter and happy tears...

Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready at Radisson Paper Valley (thank you, Elegant Exposure for capturing Kevin and the guys at the hotel).

Kevin's many reactions to seeing his bride for the first time that day.

A beautifully happy moment...

They exchanged their vows at St. Bernadette Parish in Appleton.

I love how the apple tree blossom shadows dance in these photos... a perfect combination to the lace. 

Danielle made a beautiful bride.

We ventured to the historic Fox River Mills apartments for more photos.

The Grand Meridian was the perfect background for Danielle and Kevin's elegant reception.

There were a lot of Kentucky Derby fans at this wedding... they all cheered their favorites.

Kevin and his mom kicked off the dancing portion of the evening…

Gosias-Photography-St-Bernadette-ceremony-photographer-Grand-Meridian-reception-photos-Danielle-Kevin-Chicago-wedding_0050.jpg

From slow dances, to an Irish jig, to limbo, to singing... it was definitely one evening no one will forget any time soon!
