Kate+David tied the knot at the family lakehouse that has been in the family for over 100 years. It's hosted many weddings (I think Kate+David made 8) and yet I felt special because it will be the last in their family, as they sold the house and it will be changing hands this fall. Pardon my nostalgia for the first bunch of photos – it is such a beautiful house with so many memories of family, gatherings and love. The large black and white photo (5th down) was taken on the property in 1924. Amazing.
The day was wonderful and Kate+David really shined – staying calm in the heat and just plain having fun all day long. They are so much fun to be around because they are just two people very comfortable in their own skin – they know who they are individually and together and it's a blast watching them interact. And their friends are just good humored and lovely people and I'm honored to have spent the day hanging out with them.
Some vendor notes: The day ran smoothly because of Jamie from Details Planning. This was my second time working with Details and I would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding! The Oconomowoc Lake Club was a wonderful venue and their staff was so helpful in taking care of all the guests. Michael and Dennise, the husband and wife team at Advanced Entertainment DJ did a great job keeping the party going. The lights (and I'm a big fan of uplighting!) was handled by Nate from Dream Lighting Company. They had a great photobooth setup by The ShutterBooth Experience. And last, but not least, Peter D'Amore handled the ceremony music. He's an amazing musician and a humble guy.
Kate+David: May your dancing never end and your life together be beautiful and long-lived. And may Umphrey's Mcgee always be playing on a radio somewhere near you!
