katie + dave • married

You know when something is so great that you never want it to end? That was Katie & Dave's wedding for me. It was SUCH a blast! I had the opportunity to photograph Katie and her two siblings' weddings this year, Leah & Robbie's in June and Kimmy & Colin's in July. Needless to say, it's been a whirlwind of a year and I was thrilled to be a part of all of each of their uniquely wonderful wedding days, and I am so sad it has come to a close! We did end on a great note though with Katie & Dave! They got married in Milwaukee at the absolutely stunning Astor Hotel. We were nervous about the weather as it was such a gloomy weekend but it worked out absolutely perfectly! We may have gotten downpoured on, but it was well worth it as we got some incredible photos in the rain and then it stopped for the rest of the day so we were able to go to the other locations we had planned! There were so many amazing moments and this blog is just a small taste of a day filled with so much family, friends, love, celebration, dancing and constant laughter. THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of it and congratulations!

Katie's grandma got married at the same historic hotel many years ago, so they enlarged a photo from her grandma's wedding and we took the same photograph; how neat!

Besides getting married at the same venue as her grandma, Katie & Dave also got married ON the birthday of Katie's other grandma! All kinds of celebrating! And the look on her face when they surprised her with roses and a cake was priceless!
