julie+pete’s big island hawaii wedding

Julie+Pete are pretty stellar human beings. The kind you want around you in good and bad times. They excel at their careers and they are rocking life together.

I was overjoyed to join them out on the Big Island of Hawaii for their intimate wedding at Ke Alohi Kai, an estate right on the ocean in Kona-Kailua.

The ceremony was delayed a few minutes by a little rain but the humidity didn't stop us all day long. There was a firedancer and a ukulele player, because after all we were in Hawaii. The day was completely laid back and had a wonderful island feel to it.

Besides all of the hard work Julie+Pete put into the day, they had some amazing help from Rachel+Ben at Vintage & Lace who helped put together a stellar cast of vendors. Seriously. I think every vendor asked me what would work best for me to get the best photos I could get. Besides doing an amazing job for Julie+Pete, they made my job that much easier! The flowers were by Passion Flowers by Nalani , the food by Paradise Gourmet, and the cake by Short N Sweet Bakery.

Julie+Pete: Here's to many more beautiful sunsets for the two of you! Aloha!

PS: The lack of Pete's dress shirt came during a little accident with some amazing teriyaki sauce during dinner. The best part: the vendors took his shirt, laundered it and returned it to him dry! Amazing people.

PPS: That BLUE DRESS! Love it.

kate+tanner's milwaukee pritzlaff wedding

This is my longest blog post this year, maybe to date. And I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.

Kate+Tanner came east from Madison to wed in Milwaukee at St. Hedwig Catholic Church and party at the Pritzlaff.

I'm all about the couple personalizing their wedding to who they are. Tanner, a police officer, and Kate, a social worker, both know Wisconsin state statutes very well. One of my favorite details of their day was that they used lesser known (and a sillier) statutes as their table numbers at the reception, writing up little explanations for everyone to read at their table.

Besides all of the work they put into their wedding day ahead of time, they hired Kayla of Juneberry Weddings who did a great job of keeping the day moving smoothly and beautifully. And Alan, Milwaukee's well known Scottish DJ, keep the dancefloor moving all night long too!

Kate+Tanner themselves: two extremely kind and beautiful people. It was such a pleasure to spend the whole day with them. Their trust in me helped to create a great atmosphere from which we could take the time to make some great photos together.

Blessings to you two as you set off on all of the journeys that life brings you!
