Love is Sweet as Pineapple

Who would have thought a bride and groom could experience a full-on tropical wedding right here in the streets of Milwaukee, Wisconsin?  Well, we did it!  And this is why we love this state so much!  You and your guests don't have to travel far to fulfill a tropical themed wedding of your dreams.  The location at Sangria Bar / The Point is one of the perfect venues to fool your guests into thinking they are on the Island of  Maui.  Be inspired by this wedding shoot for your own island paradise wedding!!

This is by far on of my favorite shoots to date, and all thanks to these amazing vendors who pulled together to make this Pineapple-themed wedding shoot.

The Club at Strawberry Creek, Part 2

Lauren + Dan = Gorgeous Wedding

Ceremony & Reception: The Club at Strawberry Creek, Kenosha, WI
Photographer: Nikki Winter Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Month: April

One of my favorite things on the whole wide world is the moment I get the photos back from a wedding we recently have done.  Just this week I opened my email to find a sweet little message from my dear friend and talented photographer Nikki Winter.  As the florist, so many times we rush to make sure all the last little details of the decor is just perfect, we miss some of the special moments.  The photographer captures every last little detail from the private moments the bride puts on her dress to the exciting wee hours of the night of the party.  As I look through these photos, I feel I was a part of this special day!  Thank you Nikki for taking such amazing shots of our work and capturing all the details.
