EngagedMilwaukee Bridal Show | Milwaukee Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

This past weekend I had the opportunity to participate in a fabulous event,

EngagedMilwaukee | Milwaukee’s Wedding Planner & Guide Show

It was the first year under new management & I think Brian & Jes did an outstanding job in less than 5 months that they had to get this off the ground!

The event took place @ the Frontier Airline Center in Milwaukee & was on Saturday & Sunday.

The ever fantastic David Tutera from My Fair Wedding was there on Saturday & I had the pleasure of meeting him & photographing both the presentation & the autograph signing afterwards.  I can not say enough wonderful things about him.

What a sweet man that truly loves what he does & the people he works with.

It was also my pleasure to be the official show photographer, thanks Jes & Brian again for the opportunity!

Looking forward to our Summer show @ the Pritzloff building!

The branding was just top notch.  Loved the logo, loved the colors.  Everything came together perfectly.

These were the stickers the Bride & Grooms wore when they arrived.  Pink for ladies, Grey for the men.

So much better than the stickers that say “I’m the Bride”

My booth this year, came together just as I had envisioned.

So many people to thank!  The husband for one who helped load & unload & put together everything you see here.  Couldn’t have done it with out him.

Also Michelle, my 2nd shooter for driving down in the snow to deliver brand new prints & albums that were just delivered, you are the best, truly.

Also some of the items in my booth were rented from

A la Crate Vintage Rentals in Madison, Wisconsin

They are AMAZING.  Working with Sarah was fabulous.  Such a sweet lady & a lovely business.

These little girls came up at the end, they were there for a birthday party.

Dad brought them all out {I believe they were around 9 years old} to meet David Tutera

SO cute!

Now to say that Melissa loves David, is an understatement

2012-01-26_040

…and this shot really says a lot about who David is.

100% completely genuine.

So honored to be able to meet him & spend some time with him.  I’m now fully addicted to his show!

2012-01-26_041

Adorable couple that was there the entire weekend for entertainment in the main lounge area.  They were so lovely.

2012-01-26_043

Fred Astaire Dance Studios supplied dancers who danced through out the weekend, demonstrating what a Bride & Groom’s first dance could be like if they took lessons from their studio.  Makes me want to take lessons!

2012-01-26_044

Thanks again Brian & Jes!  It was a great event!

Venue | Veteran’s Terrace, Burlington Wisconsin

Entertainment | Live band : Kind of a Big Deal

To view Chris & Crystal’s Chicago Engagement Session, click here.

One of my favorite places I’ve shot at this year has got to be the Veteran’s Terrace in Burlington Wisconsin.

C & C had thee absolute perfect day for an outside ceremony.

I can’t really put into words how cute these two are together.  Simply put, they make my job look easy.

C & C opted to have a first look which was just lovely & allowed us ample shooting time that afternoon before the ceremony & even a bit afterwards to head downtown Burlington to find a oh so fabulous BLUE wall.

The reception, was laid back, fun & was led by the boys from “Kind of a Big Deal” band out of Janesville.

WOW, they were amazing & it was a blast watching everyone enjoy themselves!

Chris & Crystal : best wishes to you as you start your life together, it was such an honor to be a part of your big day {stephanie}
