Since both, groom and bride, are shy, they decided to read their personal vows to each other in private.

Ceremony location was questioned all morning: Indoor. Outdoor. Indoor. And, again, outdoor. No, indoor that is! So many guests were packed into the indoor chapel creating a very cosy and intimate ceremony!

NATALIE & JOHN - COUNTRY ELEGANCE CEREMONY & RECEPTION - HILBERT, WI

Natalie and John are one of the two most accomplished and busy people I know... He, a nurse and woodworker enthusiast; she, a Ph.D. student at the University of Madison... They were so busy that their engagement session took place only three days before the wedding.

Gosias-Photography-Country-Elegance-ceremony-reception-farm-photographer-photos-Natalie-John-Hilbert-Wisconsin-_0012.jpg

The ceremony and reception took place at a private estate, Country Elegance. I cannot stress enough how great are the people who run it.

JESSICA & NELSON - ST. MARY'S OF THE SEVEN DOLORS CEREMONY & COBBLESTONE CREEK RECEPTION - BRILLION, WI

Although the weather on Jessica and Nelson's wedding day felt more like October than August, that didn't stop this couple from celebrating their nuptials in a grand way!

Photographing bridal details at the couple's house is more than I can ask for. The photos become even more meaningful!

We ventured to Stockbridge Fireman's Park to escape the rain.

Happy newlyweds!

The reception took place at the Cobblestone Creek. The venue was beautifully decorated and uplighted.

SHELBY AND RYAN - GREEN BAY BOTANICAL GARDENS ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER - GREEN BAY, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

On the day of Shelby and Ryan's engagement session we had a huge storm. The Green Bay Botanical Gardens were soaked in the warm rain, but Mother Nature did not disappoint... we had three minutes of a wonderful partial rainbow! 

As soon as I saw the rainbow, I asked them to run to the edge of the sidewalk and 'just kiss.' That was their first kiss of the session... first kisses are usually uncomfortable since the couples don't really know me yet, but I must say that Shelby and Ryan had a perfect kiss!
