Leah and Tim’s wedding started out at a tiny yet beautiful Catholic church in Poy Sippi and they ended their special day at The Cottonwood Barn in Weyauwega, WI. They had a very heartfelt ceremony about centering Christ in their marriage that made me cry from behind my camera in the back of the church. Their traditional barn wedding was full of love and joy and support from the people they love the most.
These two have a big dream of opening a bakery together someday, and I cannot wait to see them succeed together. Their wedding day was a testimony to how they have molded two lives into one and settled into their dreams as a team, as partners, and now as husband and wife.
They also did something really cool with their engagement photos during dinner! While most of my couples either frame their engagement photos and make them part of their tables, or make an album from them to double as their guest book, Leah and Tim went the extra mile and put their favorite engagement photo on a CUSTOM WINE LABEL!
My photographer’s heart is singing. So cool, y’all.
All around and in between, you could feel the love they have for each other and the absolute JOY that their life together will hold. But don’t just take my word for it… Keep scrolling to see more from their traditional barn wedding day!

Can I get a thirty-second dance party?! Wedding season 2022 has officially begun! Teagan and Dan’s Clearwater Harbor Wedding here in Waupaca was the perfect way to kick off my season for the year.
Teagan and Dan met in 2017 after Teagan returned back to Wisconsin from the Peace Corps. She traveled to the Ukraine during her year in the Peace Corps, and her and Dan made sure to incorporate Ukraine chocolates that helped them not only support them during their war efforts now, but also to commemorate her time spent there.
After college, Dan got a job here in Waupaca with the City Police force. We incorporated Dan’s police car and his badge into their engagement session, and half the force was there for their wedding. (Because the other half had to work!) Seeing their camaraderie and their love and support for Teagan and Dan as they enter into this new chapter was so amazing to see, after I got over the shock of them all being out of uniform, of course.
Their wedding day truly celebrated all the small town love. All of their vendors are local to Waupaca!

*Now that Becca and Matt’s wedding has been FEATURED ON PREMIER BRIDE!! I can finally share here on the blog!
Becca and Matt were another one of my Covid couples from this past year. Their big day was long awaited — but that absolutely made their giant party more spectacular. When we met up at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens for their engagement session way back in 2019, I knew that their summer wedding at Tundra Lodge was going to be epic.
Fast forward to July 2020. Becca and I had been emailing back and forth as her and Matt made the hard decision to move their wedding to 2021. My heart broke for them as it did for so many of my 2020 couples that made that hard call to delay, reschedule, or cancel their wedding altogether.
In 2021, these guys showed up ready to party. They were the last one of my covid reschedules, and they truly made their wedding day one to remember. From Becca chatting with her very best friend that was overseas and couldn’t make it to the wedding, to a special dance that Becca shared with her brother after losing his long-time girlfriend earlier that year, Becca and Matt truly found a way to honor their loved ones that couldn’t be there due to time and distance and loss.
And then they had a giant dance party.
They did a second grand march during their reception — thats the big secret to those awesome kissing photos down below.

First things first. Vicky and Ben’s backyard wedding was a tear-jerker for sure. During their ceremony, I fought back tears from behind my camera as they cemented their love story for one another through their faith in Jesus and the power of forever in front of everyone they love. And then they threw a big party complete with everyone they love! It really was the perfect wedding day.
Their plans ended up changing last minute because of a mask mandate that was put into place in Illinois just weeks before their wedding. However, they were determined to not let that ruin their wedding day. So they went from planning on a big formal church ceremony complete with a getaway in Ben‘s vintage convertible — to the sweetest backyard ceremony at the bride’s father and step-mom‘s home.
Vicky and Ben are also best friends one of my 2020 wedding couples, Kristen and Sean. They were actually matron of honor and best man in their wedding! It was so fun to catch up with them and have them be a part of Vicky and Ben‘s special day. They both gave a toast to Vicky and Ben during their reception, and it was such a joy to see the love between all of them and how important they all are in each others lives.

Elise and Geoff are one of my Covid Couples from 2020. These two got married on their original wedding date in a small, intimate ceremony, and then threw a giant party and renewed their vows on their one year anniversary. Celebrating with Elise and Geoff and their son in tow was such a blessing in 2021.
Their wedding day was beautiful and romantic. Their vows made me tear up from behind my camera, and you could feel the deep and true love they have for one another and the family they have built together through every detail of their Bridle Barn and Gardens wedding.

Lizzy and Cody’s love story is such an honor to be a small part of. Their wedding at The Radisson in Green Bay was romantic, joyful, and magical. You could feel the excitement buzzing in the air from the moment I entered the salon, and it didn’t stop there.
I may have teared up a little bit during their vows, and celebrated right along with them as they twirled and dipped and reveled in that just married feeling.

Madeline and Jake’s wedding day was, in a word… perfect. Their love for one another is sweet, intentional, and pure, and their wedding was nothing short of magic.
Jake and Madeline are high school sweethearts! They’ve known each other since the fifth grade. How sweet is that?
It was such an honor and a privilege to be such an integral part of their special day. There were more than a few moments when I teared up from behind my camera during their ceremony — and when Madeline and her dad danced to Edelweiss from The Sound of Music? I couldn’t not cry while trying to take photos at the same time!
And did I mention these two were champs and braved the rain after their ceremony like the rock stars that they are? They were such good sports and opted to take their bride and groom portraits sans umbrella — which also meant traipsing through downtown Lake Geneva in the rain!

Amanda and Brandon are the sweetest couple. Their intimate, romantic wedding in Greenleaf was such a privilege to photograph. The way these two celebrated and honored the people they love along with their marriage was something I will cherish forever. They truly just wanted to throw a party with everyone they loved, and they did just that.
My photographer heart burst when Amanda told me we were a) going to a campground where she used to go with her family as a child, and b) there was a WATERFALL. It was some serious magic, yall!
