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).

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…

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!

STACEY & BRENT - APPLETON COURTHOUSE CEREMONY & RIVERVIEW GARDENS RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI

Stacey and Brent celebrated their union over two days. Surrounded by their parents, they married in an intimate ceremony at the Appleton courthouse. Then, we spent some time making portraits on the lovely grounds at Lawrence University. Two weeks later, came the second day of festivities.  The couple celebrated in style with family and friends at the Riverview Gardens.

A short, sweet ceremony, but still with a few happy tears.

Before heading out to Lawrence University, we spent time at the old courthouse. The lobby is just full of reflective surfaces and patterns... one just has to look for them :)
