COURTNEY & PATRICK - WHISPERING SPRINGS GOLF CLUB WEDDING CEREMONY AND RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - FOND DU LAC, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

The weather the whole week before Courtney and Patrick’s wedding day was so rainy, that even I was looking at the forecast. All the worrying was for nothing; the weather turned gorgeous for Courtney and Patrick’s special day!

The bridal bling…

Personalized Converse shoes and one of the most beautiful veils ever.

Growing up in Wisconsin, everyone knows that when it comes to football, the Minnesota Vikings are one of the Green Bay Packer’s biggest rivals… but this wedding couple tried to bridge the ‘differences’ even if by a small wedding detail. :)

Patrick shared the story behind the tie pin with me… and then, I had the chance to photograph his mom’s reaction to his decision to wear the pin on the day of his wedding.

Courtney asked if we could do the first look (btw, I love photographing those moments)… this time, Patrick’s best friend ‘went’ first… oh, and there was so much laughter! There were even jokes that perhaps, Kody isn’t the only fake bride seeking the first look…

Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Whispering-Springs-Golf-Course-Fond-du-Lac-Courtney-and-Patrick-_0010.jpg

I’m so glad we used the reception room as the background for the first look. The room at the Whispering Springs Golf Club is simple but that is what makes it great!

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
