Rebecca and Brandon’s wedding = Vintage DIY Fun. Rebecca and Brandon are both out in Cali, but Becca is from Wisconsin. I loved all the details and time the family put into this wedding. Becca is a designer, and she made most of the details such as the centerpieces, guest cards/game books, signs, and needlepoint table numbers… yeah AWESOME! All the flowers were done by the fabulous greenthumbs of Becca’s mother. Just one look at her yard, and you wouldn’t even blink at that task… seriously, I wondered how she had time to do anything else but keep up with all the beautiful landscaping around the house. Seriously beautiful. On top of all the DIY details, the bridal party was super chill, and a lot of fun. A lot of the guys were from out in Cali too, so there was for sure a Cali vibe reverberating throughout the day. Super chill. And even better than that, the light was so good throughout the day. We shot a lot out back of their home, got to stop by Becca’s favorite vintage store; Dime a Dance, and then had the opportunity to work at The Rotunda in Waukesha again. I really like that space. The only snag in the day is when Simon and I tried to park… and the parking structure only took cash… What’s that about, who carries cash? Neither of us… so there we were, sitting at the front of a long line of cars without money, and no one working at the structure. The car behind us was kind enough to lend us $2 to park, so all was ok, and we could get back to work.
Erinn and Andy’s wedding was absolutely beautiful. They were married at one of my favorite venues, the Villa Terrace, and had their reception at a place I have never photographed before, the Womans Club of Wisconsin. Simon and I had two weddings this day, so I called my first choice second shooter and good friend Paul Sparks to shoot with me for the day. It was great to work with Paul again.
