It was a warm 90 degree day in bluffs and hills of Merrimac, Wisconsin. When I arrived, Morgan was already stunning with her a classic birdcage veil.  I could not take my eyes off her and took way too many photos of her! The groom, Zach, is a longtime family friend who always has a smile and kind words for everyone who knows him. I had such a wonderful time photographing their wedding because I really did feel like a member of the wedding party as well as the family. It doesn’t help that my best friend was a bridesmaid and I photographed the Best Man’s wedding as well.

The décor was vintage and elegant with lace and pearls. There were bird cages and beautiful vases aged to perfection. The incredible floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres were designed by Sarah from Simply Glamorous Designs at Oregon Floral in the town where the bride is from.  She does such beautiful work!

Devil’s Head Resort is hidden in the hills of Merrimac, WI full of beautiful greenery, golfing and winter skiing.  What a fantastic venue for a wedding!

After the ceremony, I went for a walk with the bride and groom in the beautiful surrounding area once the guests went up to the cocktail hour. I love how the light is coming through the trees and the way they looked at each other. These two are so sweet it was so romantic the way they held hands and giggled the whole time.

Zach was one of my very first High School Senior photo subjects and now I have photographed his wedding to a lovely and amazing woman! Where did the time go? I did ask them when they booked me if they were absolutely sure they wanted me to shoot it and not because I was a family friend. They said “YES!” I feel so honored to be a part of this magnificent day and that they chose me to document it.   Congratulations on your marriage Zach and Morgan!
