Ana + Patrick are the type of couple that have a good time no matter what. Whether things go perfectly, or not at all as planned, they can see the good in the moment. They’re a true team if I’ve ever seen one! I knew their day was going to be amazing, regardless of weather (it was a hot one, folks) or any other circumstances.
The best part of the day? Ana + Patrick opted to write personal vows to each other and read them during their first look. I was lucky enough to get to see and document that moment, and part of what I loved was how private it was! Besides me, no one else got to witness that moment. It was truly just the two of them making their promises to each other. Thankfully, I got to hide my watery eyes behind the camera for that part.
After their ceremony, we got to head downtown to Turner Hall! I’ve wanted to photograph in that space since I began my business 9 years ago, so it was a personal dream come true. Not only that, but Sally and Courtney of Milwaukee Flower Co. transformed the entire room, and it took my breath away! With printed pieces expertly created by Bay View Printing Co., the reception looked so completely personal to Ana + Patrick. After speeches and dinner, we slipped out for a few sunset portraits around the Fiserv Forum area, and finally they got to have their first dance together.
Ana + Patrick, thank you for such an amazing day together, and I already can’t wait to see all the love and adventure the future holds for you. You’re a beautiful example of marriage! Much love and lots of hugs to you both!
