Door County Family Gathering

This is what summer is all about; family gatherings at summer homes, cousin time, catching up on life, traditional summer picnic foods and fun colorful outfits celebrating the now endless warmth of summer. We have met so many playful families and photographed so much love and laughter over the years, but this family reunion of-sorts may just take the cake for a good time! Last week I spent an evening with more families than I could even keep track of and who-belongs-to-who and feasted on some fabulous food from Alexander’s in Fish Creek. This week has been filled with smiles as I relive all the laughter we shared that night. A HUGE thank you for all the love from this family – you have warmed my heart.  door-county-family-photographer_01 door-county-family-photographer_02 door-county-family-photographer_03 door-county-family-photographer_04 door-county-family-photographer_05 door-county-family-photographer_06 door-county-family-photographer_07 door-county-family-photographer_08 door-county-family-photographer_09 door-county-family-photographer_10 door-county-family-photographer_11 door-county-family-photographer_12 door-county-family-photographer_13 door-county-family-photographer_14 door-county-family-photographer_15 door-county-family-photographer_16 door-county-family-photographer_17 door-county-family-photographer_18 door-county-family-photographer_19 door-county-family-photographer_20 door-county-family-photographer_21 door-county-family-photographer_22 door-county-family-photographer_23 door-county-family-photographer_24 door-county-family-photographer_25 door-county-family-photographer_26 door-county-family-photographer_27 door-county-family-photographer_28 door-county-family-photographer_29 door-county-family-photographer_30 door-county-family-photographer_31 door-county-family-photographer_32 door-county-family-photographer_33 door-county-family-photographer_34 door-county-family-photographer_35 door-county-family-photographer_36 door-county-family-photographer_37 door-county-family-photographer_38 door-county-family-photographer_39 door-county-family-photographer_40 door-county-family-photographer_41 door-county-family-photographer_42 door-county-family-photographer_43 door-county-family-photographer_44 door-county-family-photographer_45

Bryce & Andrea {the wedding}

We talk about love a lot over here. It’s our job and drives our passion for storytelling. Witnessing all types of love between wedding couples teaches us time and time again that every story is unique. Bryce and Andrea are no exception and had us grinning all day long over how sweet they are with each other, and their family and friends.

We say that a lot too… ‘surrounded with love from family and friends.’ And it’s always true. But these two were blanketed in such joy we couldn’t help but dream everyone’s unique story as we watched hugs, smiles and laughter fill the day.

Bryce and Andrea planned for a first look and bridal portraits prior to their ceremony which always make us happy. Heidel House in Green Lake Wisconsin was the perfect backdrop for these two to set eyes on each other for the first time that day. And planning for all of your bridal portraits prior to your ceremony takes the pressure off afterwards to rush from one place to the next.

Their ceremony included heartfelt vows and songs sung by friends who blew us away with their talent. Unique spins on first dances had us smiling from ear to ear and college accapella friends didn’t let the day go by without sharing a few songs together either. There MIGHT be too much love story in this day to share in images but we’re going to try anyways…
