Caitlin and Greg are one of those couples you meet and immediately know they were made for each other! I discovered this when I first met them about a year ago. They were really interested in my landscape shooting and how I brought that style into my wedding work. We started brainstorming some ideas for where an engagement shoot might take place and quickly found we all had a love for the outdoors, and decided that Devil’s Lake would make a stunning location! You can see the results from that session here!
It was on the engagement shoot that I better got to know who Caitlin and Greg are as a couple. We had a really fun time hiking down by the lake and up into the bluffs. It was actually quite and easy shoot for me with how much fun these two had with each other! I found that at the core of their relationship was playful and honest love, neither taking themselves too seriously, and definitely putting each other first. I left that shoot feeling like I gained two new friends and grew ever more excited for their January wedding!
January arrived faster than any of us could imagine! We started the day at Greg’s parents’ house where all of the girls slept over the night before!
The guys met up at the Captain's Chair barbershop in Racine, WI. This was such a cool idea! Usually the girls are the only ones to go out and get a little pampering on the wedding day, but nothing beats a good straight-razor shave for the guys!
quick stop at the hotel for the guys to get suited up! The toast was a special family tradition Greg's grandfather did at all special family events.
Then it was off to the DeKoven Center for some finishing touches on Caitlin! What a stunning bride! We loved the classic look!
The Chapel itself was incredibly beautiful! The dark wood and relaxing lighting made for a really intimate ceremony. I always feel privileged to be present for such a special moment!
This was such a fun group to work with! They were all willing and eager to brave the cold and head outside with us to do some bridal party portraits! The DeKoven Center was an excellent venue choice! It gave us so much beauty and variety of locations!
I'm so happy no one got frostbite! Time to head to the Fountain Banquet Hall for the party! You all did a stunning job on the decorating! We thought the ambiance of the place was incredible!
lmost everyone in this group was a dancing machine! We had so much fun hanging out with everyone.
We had such a wonderful day with you all! Thank you for making us feel like part of the family! Caitlin and Greg, you two are amazing people with incredible friends and family! We were honored to have the privilege of working with you and getting to know you as friends too! We wish you the best in the next chapter of your love story!
