Wisconsin Wedding Photographer {Andrea & Luke)

It was an absolute perfect day for Luke and Andrea’s open air wedding this summer at North Shore Golf Club. Some weddings are blessed with the most of beautiful days where everything flows as planned with the only things left to do are smile, relax and enjoy the amazing day you planned. Surrounded by friends and family, Luke and Andrea got to do just that. Andrea knew precisely how she wanted their special day to go and with the help of Sash & Bows attention to all the details, it was a day to remember. From our experience, brides that choose to have a wedding planner truly get to soak in the little and grand moments of the day that seemingly flies by, as it should be.

Finding a practical gift for your attendees is not an easy task but Andrea nailed it with these adorable robes from Plum Pretty Sugar. Kobe’s Bowtie found and bought on Etsy – SillyBuddy These pure, gentile moments of the day are so special to witness. A big day for all indeed!

Andrea and her father chose to have a First Look before Andrea and her handsome groom did one.  It was such a genuine moment to recognize her Daddy in that way. It still brings a huge smile to my face to see dad’s reaction to the vision of his little girl dressed in white for her big day.

Equally a profound father son moment, possibly the last time he’ll assist Luke in this manner. Two minds racing with heartfelt thoughts and wonders. Talk about butterflies. Can’t you feel the excitement for them? These first look moments are equally breathtaking. So pure and sweet. Andrea’s bouquet choices gets our vote for the best use of color harmony.  The soft tones and textures of the succulents were accented perfectly with the girls dresses. The way their hands are tenderly embracing speaks so much. I adore these sweet moments that tend to fade from the memory over time. Such a natural feeling to be married under a beautiful tree canopy. Signature ‘Berry Benrud Mojito’ to refresh and toast to. Those paper straws add just the perfect touch of class. Yard games bring such a great playful energy to the cocktail hour. This custom bean bag game was a darling investment choice. I’ve seen plenty of custom place cards but these were amazing. Each card playfully represented in such a classy manner what was to come. Willows, I always gravitate towards their beauty. So restful, romantic and texturally interesting. Afternoon light presents such beautiful imagery. I love focusing on tender moments. Imagine smelling these cakes from across the room even before seeing them. That familiar smell of sweet butter-cream was just the first attraction to these stunning pastry creations. Receptions become memorable when there is room to mingle and disperse beyond the dance floor. We always love the atmosphere North Shore Country Club creates after dusk. Yes, fireworks were a surprise treat to ALL the guests at Andrea & Luke reception. Not even Mon and Dad knew about this sweet ending!

Images can only tell you so much about your wedding day.  To really see and feel Andrea and Luke’s day check out their wedding film produced by our favorite cinematographers, Copper Clover Films!

Snowy Wisconsin Winter Wedding {Tara & Tim}

Winter weddings have a whisp of magic about them that we adore to the core. We all have to work a bit quicker in the snowy beauty but the outcome is so fresh, so unique, so lovely. Tara & Tim were such a delight to work with. Their natural confidence blended with our artistry in front of the camera. As a result we have a day filled with timeless beauty, playfully wrapped in their very own snow globe of a day. Winter stretches us as artists to break boundaries and try new things, this is a total win win. I know this is an image heavy post but it’s meant to give the full emotion of the day and to inspire winter brides…plus, I really couldn’t help myself.

P.S : A little note to Tim & Tara. As your one year anniversary is on the horizon, may your days be filled with genuine love, may you always enjoy the simple beauties in life and may you continue to be blessed in your journey as one. Congratulations on your first year together!
