I have a tendency to gush about things (rightfully so, I suppose, since I do spend my days knee deep in pretty), but if there ever was a wedding worthy of a serious gush-fest, this beauty captured by Leo And Jenny Photography would be it. Perfectly planned by this gorgeous Bride’s sister, every detail is not just beautiful, but filled with love – leaving me head over heels for this gallery.
From The Bride…Josh and I both graduated from Notre Dame, but we didn’t meet on campus. Ironically, we met in Ann Arbor at the Notre Dame/Michigan football game. We’d both be lying if we said there weren’t instant sparks. Four years later, Josh proposed while visiting me in my hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin on a dock on Lake Michigan. I was so surprised and excited, I thought I was going to pass out and fall into the water!
We knew we wanted our wedding to be romantic and beautiful, but also wanted to throw an awesome party for all of our friends and family. I had always dreamed of having an outdoor wedding, and when we discovered that Lake Park Bistro, one of our favorite restaurants in the city and the place we celebrated our engagement, did tented weddings, we were sold.
With the venue set in a tent at Lake Park Bistro overlooking Lake Michigan, truly the rest wouldn’t have gotten done without my sister/MOH/wedding planner/coordinator, Amanda. With her eye for aesthetics and style that I will never understand, she planned the most perfect day that Josh and I could ever have imagined. From the cocktail hour on a staircase that looked down on the lake, to the sea of blush flowers that greeted guests in the tent, to the rocking band that kept the dance floor packed all night and Leo and Jenny that captured it all, our wedding was our definition of perfect. We feel so blessed, and only wish we could go back and do it again!!
