I was prepared for a rainy day with backup locations, a stash of umbrellas and rain boots. It ended up being one the most beautiful days in June with big puffy white clouds and blue skies. Not to mention a gorgeous bride and groom!
Jeff was showing me his amazing cuff links and very sentimental shoes from his uncle when I got the call from Klara that she was on her way with Melanie for the First Look moment. This would be the time that the bride and groom would see each other for the first time all prettied up for their wedding day. We started jumping around getting excited and I found a neat place to hide him at Burke Park so he could walk down these gorgeous steps and see her.
The look on his face was priceless when he saw her. She was magnificent in her beautiful gown from Elaine’s Bridal in Green Bay and the necklace Jeff gave her as a wedding gift. We took a walk around the island and they had a chance to really spend some time together with me shooting away from a distance capturing some fun and beautiful photos.
The reception was a treat (pun intended) with candy jars everywhere to satisfy your sweet tooth all night. I had a pocket full of random sweets all night (I know, I know) and kept munching away on all that yummy goodness. And how about that giant cupcake??? What a fun day! Congrats Melanie and Jeff!
