Black Hawk Country Club Madison Wedding {Bridget + Chris}

Cheese curds, apple pie, lakeside dock, laughter, flying lanterns, and a very friendly dog. That is a lot to pack into any day, especially a wedding. But Bridget + Chris don’t seem to hold back on life, and so their wedding was a natural extension of their “go full steam” approach to living; full of great food, great dancing, and lots of celebrating! st bernards church middleton wi weddingflash composite of groomsmen in wi state capitol buildingbride getting ready at st bernards catholic church wedding madison wigroom and 4 groomsmen outside wi state capitol buildingbride holding monogrammed handkerchief at st bernards catholic church wedding madison wibride dabbing tears with handkerchief while talking to mother before st bernards catholic church wedding madison wiemotional father walks daughter down aisle at St Barnards catholic church madison wibride and groom exit St bernards catholic church after wedding madison wibride and groom in trolley after st bernards catholic church wedding madison wibride and groom and white doggroom kissed bride on cheek in front of lake mendota madison wibride and groom look at camera and smile in front of lake mendota madison widetails of brides bouquet with lace veil in bright colorsbride and 4 bridesmaids in lake blue dressesbride and sistersbride and groom in front of lake mendota madison wibride and groom on top of pier in front of lake mendota madison wiflash composite of wedding partybride and groom relax before wedding reception in back yardblackhawk country club wedding madison wiflower centerpiece in gold painted vase blackhawk country club wedding madison wiwhite pumpkins and gold details for blackhawk country club wedding madison wipie for dessert at blackhawk country club wedding madison wiwhite and gold fall centerpieces at blackhawk country club wedding madison wiweding party at blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride and groom blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride and groom at blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride and groom with dramatic clouds as sun set at blackhawk country club wedding madison wiwedding rings on white pumpkin with gold detailscheese curds served at weddingguest hugs bride at cocktail hour blackhawk country club wedding madison wiparents of the couple at blackhawk country club wedding madison witoasts at blackhawk country club wedding madison witwo fathers shake hands during toasts blackhawk country club wedding madison wifather of bride gives toast blackhawk country club wedding madison witoasts at blackhawk country club wedding madison wifather of bride hugs groom at blackhawk country club wedding madison wibrides siblings give toast blackhawk country club wedding madison wispeeches blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride and groom laugh during speechesbride and groom welcome guests blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride and groom have first dance with live band blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride hugs groom during first dance blackhawk country club wedding madison wigroom holds bride during first dance blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride dances with father and groom dances with mother blackhawk country club wedding madison wibridesmaid cutting loose on dance floor blackhawk country club wedding madison wifun dancing with live band blackhawk country club wedding madison wilive band singing at blackhawk country club wedding madison wigroomsmen dancing blackhawk country club wedding madison wilive band blackhawk country club wedding madison wibride kisses grandmother on the dance floor blackhawk country club wedding madison wireception dancing at blackhawk country club wedding madison wilighting lanterns after wedding blackhawk country club \madison wi

Lakewood Chapel Wedding + 317 on Rice Park Reception {Tam + Jesus}

Families are formed by blood and by choice, and weddings are the perfect blending of the two – choosing to join two families together. Tam + Jesus have found a great partner in the other, but they have also clearly found a lot of love and support in each other’s families – Jesus is good friends with Tam’s father, Tam is beloved by Jesus’s kids, and everyone just has so much to celebrate! They chose the stunning Lakewood Chapel for their intimate wedding – and brought a golden hue to everything. And their reception at 317 on Rice Park, set off with silver mercury glass, and Tam’s amazing silver beaded gown. A fabulous set of events for an exceptionally loved couple. Congratulations!

Unexpected Panoramas {Tam + Jesus} preview

bride and groom sitting on bench at rice park panorama

I like to have a lot of “tools” in my bag of tricks for documenting weddings. Some of those are actual tools (like my supply of flannel cloths for cleaning up water or my lenses) or my different types of lights. But some of them are also conceptual, such as creating panoramas like the one above. This image is actually composed of over 20 images, stitched together. That allows me to have a depth of field not possible in a single image, and also gives a larger field of view without distortion. Both of those things allow me to feature a lot of the setting, but still have Tam and Jesus to be the main focus of this image. More from their intimate wedding later this week!

Minneapolis Wedding at Varsity Theater {Lindsey + Dan}

I would be hesitant to use the phrase “a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll” because it generally doesn’t do either justice, but Lindsey + Dan’s wedding had some true southern roots (with a marquee sign of “Married, Y’all”) and their shared love of music led them to have the exemplary DJ Jake Rudh at their reception for some very non-wedding wedding music.
