ANGIE & SPENCER - RIVERVIEW GARDENS CEREMONY AND RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

Over my many years in the wedding photography business, I must say that Angie and Spencer made the most laid back couple I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. And, it was a Sunday wedding… I love Sunday weddings!

BARBARA AND ALEC - SAINT MONICA PARISH CEREMONY PHOTOGRAPHER - WHITEFISH BAY, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

Barbara contacted me about six weeks before her wedding. She said she would like me to photograph the ceremony and portraits afterward... and if I were willing to travel to Milwaukee. We spoke on the phone two times and she settled on meeting me for the first time on the day of her wedding. I couldn't stress more how awesome Barbara and Alec are. They make a great couple and a lovely family!

Bridal details...

If I were to tell you that this photo was taken in the church basement, you wouldn't believe me, would you? St. Monica Catholic Church in Whitefish Bay (near Milwaukee) has the best church basement I have ever seen!

A sweet moment with her daughter.

Lovely bride with her as much lovely mom.

Just look at Barbara's daughter's expression. The best bride reveal photo. ever.

A first look...

Right before ceremony, Barbara's parents welcomed Alec's parents... it was a very nice moment.

Sibling pic :)

Barbara and Alec decided on walking in together to the ceremony. I just love how Barbara's face lights up when she looks at her groom (in every photo!).

I usually don't photograph Communion during any Mass, but due to the size of the side chapel, I was able to capture this moment.

Thank you, Barbara and Alec, for making me a part of your beautiful wedding ceremony. It was one of the most intimate and spiritual ceremonies I had pleasure photographing. 

Dziekuje.

 

ANNIE & KEELAN - JAMES J. HILL CENTER WEDDING CEREMONY & RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - ST. PAUL, MN

I first met Annie and Keelan in May 2016 when Keelan was the best man at Chris and Danielle's wedding. A few months later, they contacted me to see if I would be available to photograph their wedding. Even though the celebration was scheduled in St. Paul in December, there was no hesitation on my part. My answer was yes! Keelan was a great best man, Annie was super sweet, so I knew that we would be a great couple/photographer match. 

And, oh, my! How l love their wedding... Annie and her mom, did a great job with the planning... to the very last little detail. And, they both are such delightful ladies. 

But, don't take my word for it... just take a look at the beautiful photographs...

Annie was getting ready at The St. Paul Hotel... old world charm in every room, even in the hallways.

Bridal details... the dress was amazing: lace with a hint of blush pink in the underskirt (disclaimer: the stole was made out of synthetic material).

Groom's details. Keelan prepared for the ceremony in one of the smaller rooms at the James J. Hill Center.

I photographed their first look in one of the library balconies.

I tried to have them be as sheltered from the wind as possible but I cannot believe how brave these people were... we are talking about 30 degree weather with wind chill. The result... beautiful photographs set against the white marble of the library.

Annie's flowers were beautiful... so beautiful in fact, that she did not dare to take them outside.

The ceremony was officiated by their close friend. She did a great job. And the couple's vows... well, I had tears in my eyes (and possibly a few blurry pictures).
