wisconsin wedding photographer ~ daniel + stephanie’s cross plain’s wedding

I have to thank all our brides and grooms for being so patient with my blogging, and if any of you would like to practice your parenting on a slightly cranky sixteen month old, give me a call and I’ll get even more done. I don’t get many offers for her, poor kid is teething again (at least that’s what I think is going on!).

All right, on to the fun stuff, right? Rob and I shot Stephanie and Daniel’s wedding way back in July (yeah, I am that behind on blogging my weddings). The got married at St. Martin’s down in Cross Plains and when we arrived, we had a first. The groomsmen were all assembled and ready for pictures, how awesome is that? Super awesome because it never happens! All but one of the groomsmen were Daniel’s brothers, his missing brother is overseas and we did get to “see” him later on at the reception via laptop, it was really great. I’m tearing up just remembering that night, so moving on, shall we?

The girl’s flowers were gorgeous, even after the flower girl tried to demolish her flower ball. One thing that I loved, was that all the granddaughter’s on Daniel’s side wore matching pink polka dotted dresses, they totally fit in with the hot pink theme of the wedding. Stephanie even surprised me with her magenta heels, which I totally love.

Stephanie couldn’t wait to head down the aisle and get the ceremony over with. She was super excited and utterly gorgeous in her lace covered gown, how I love lace. Daniel was in all white and definitely stood out amongst the black clad groomsmen and hot pink vests. July is the month of hot pink for us! I’ll admit that my favorite color is green, but hot pink makes me all girly and full of smiles. I know, it’s a goofy fact for me.

We hit up Ski Hi for some quick shots of the rolling Wisconsin hills behind the bridal party, Stephanie wanted to remember Wisconsin since they are moving out East. Then we headed off to Wisconsin Dells for the reception at the Wintergreen Resort.

The food was delicous, the cake was amazing and it was the first time that we have been at a table completely alone. I swear we don’t smell, but we grabbed a couple empty seats up front – the entire back side was packed. We did have the perfect vantage point for the speeches, toasts and kissing. During Michael’s speech, he joked that Stephanie had to marry the “ugly brother” and everyone just cracked up. Stephanie and Daniel are so great for each other, the were full of smiles and little glances all day.

The DJ kept the dance floor packed, even the kids got into the music. I’m pretty sure that they were dancing better than I can! It was amazing how well the whole family got into the music at the reception.

Congrats and best wishes on your new adventures, Daniel and Stephanie!
