sima+ivan's milwaukee wedding

It might have been held in Milwaukee, but this was a very Croatian wedding! In fact, there were many countries represented as their friend flew in from around the world to participate in their day. I wish I would have brushed on my years of German, but alas, I was stuck with only English that day.

The wedding was held at the beautiful Boerner Botanical Gardens and the reception was held at Sacred Heart Church's hall.

I didn't have the pleasure of an engagement session with Sima and Ivan, as he was in Croatia until shortly before the wedding (where he's a musician). Yet even without the engagement session they were both very comfortable in front of the camera and a complete pleasure to work with.

I wish you both health and many years of a great marriage!










































Here, Nate (of Clearview Productions) and I were trying to figure out what to eat first. Yup, all of this food was for us!





Ivan jumped up to join the band for his second song to Sima that day.
