kristi + brendan's northwoods wi stout's island lodge wedding

i remember things in blips and moments, scenes and frames.

ferry to a foggy island. my friend & second shooter, stephanie claire, playing her guitar. a sunrise glow through log cabin vintage curtains. kristi and brendan—warm souls, adorably and irretrievably in love. their friends & family with so much heart. and the rain followed by the sun and boats and swimming and docks by midnight and fireworks lighting up the post holiday skies to a folksy blues soundtrack. magic, love, escape.

and as vladimir nabokov said, "the rest is just rust and stardust."

venue: stout's island lodge // florist: martha's gardens // band: the afterwhile // planner: joan of ambiente // beer for days (including a special brew made just for the couple): leinenkugel's

amanda + tim's door county woodwalk gallery wedding

a meeting under a teepee under sunny skies. a dog to make you laugh and memorized vows to make you cry. style and art, a chill couple surrounded by wooden barn slats and paintbrushes ... but more importantly, surrounded by their closest friends and family. amanda and tim are so good to each other ... something you notice within minutes spent in their combined presence.

this day. intimate and relaxed. beauty, all around.

venue: woodwalk gallery // second shooter: nikki n
