Megan & Jon | Minocqua, WI Wedding Ceremony & St. Germain, WI Reception
We have been looking forward to this gorgeous wedding for a long time! This day was the culmination of years together in a loving relationship… all the way back to high school. We had a blast working with high school sweet hearts Megan & Jon on their joyful wedding day! Surrounded by their super fun & hilarious wedding party and many close friends… the day flowed with tons of laughter, jokes, hugs, and tears. There were so many lovely details… classy navy suits, custom cufflinks & tie pin, stunning florals by Mary Horant, made with unique succulents, flowey bridesmaid dresses in a perfect shade of green to suit their summer color palate. Megan’s elegant lace dress, gorgeous white satin heels, and Green Bay Packers garter, put the final touch on all the details. After an emotional and heart felt wedding Mass, the party got started in the party bus. We made a quick stop at their high school football field for a few photos before a summer storm rolled in. The party continued at the Whitetail Inn in St. Germain. The Whitetail is a PERFECT Northwoods wedding venue with it’s huge log construction and rustic charm. Megan’s Grandfather was the first owner of the Whitetail Inn when it was built years ago. How fun and meaningful to return to it for such a grand event! The tables were set with light linens, rustic inspired floral center pieces, candles, and lanterns. As the sun set, the cocktails flowed and the dancing started… and boy can these folks dance! Another summer storm rolled in that night… and as the electricity flickered…. the party continued without a hitch. As the rain continued falling outside, Megan & Jon bravely followed us out into the storm to take some FANTASTIC night rain photos. There are so many more moments of this day, that we just don’t have room to highlight here. We were so honored to be a part of this big day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Hope!

My beautiful sweet cousin Elizabeth got married just a few short weeks ago and it was a lovely event! Elizabeth was my flower girl at my wedding in 2004 and now she is married! So wonderful to see her grow up into a kind, graceful, generous, and beautiful woman. Elizabeth and Mauricio met at church one evening and that was the start of this beautiful relationship. Their wedding day began with a first look and photos in the backyard of Elizabeth’s family home. Mauricio’s reaction & expression said it all! Elizabeth wore her Great Grandmother’s gorgeous silk & lace wedding gown. She’s the 5th woman in the family to wear THE dress! Family came in from all over (including Columbia!) to witness their unique “creation story” themed wedding ceremony, followed by a sweet High Tea style reception. The tables were set with summer flowers, numerous unique tea pots, and place settings with unique china patterns. Guests enjoyed gourmet scones with cream & lemon curd, dainty sandwiches & wraps, and pretty desserts. Family & friends shared meaningful stories and toasts. It was such a sweet and honoring time. I’m thrilled that they have found each other and thankful for their love for each other, their families, and Jesus Christ. Congratulations Elizabeth & Mauricio!
