Lauren & Pete | Legend at Merrill Hills Wedding | Waukesha WI
We had such a wonderful time at Lauren & Pete’s wedding celebration. Ben and I have known Lauren for years, as we all met at a camp years ago when Lauren attended as a youth camper and then continued her involvement for a number of years as a summer staff member & leader. We were thrilled when we heard that Lauren had met THE ONE… and wanted us to photograph their big day. We had a blast getting to know Pete while working with them at their engagement session this spring…. we all had a good laugh when we asked Pete to hug Lauren close, and nuzzle. The nuzzle became the way to make them both laugh through out their engagement session and on their wedding day.
Their July wedding started out with perfect weather on a gorgeous breezy blue sky day… upon arriving at the Legend at Merrill Hills, Lauren & Pete had a sweet first look. After some hugs & laughter, and photos around the golf course, their wedding party (made up of their closest friends), joined us for more photos. We loved Lauren’s choice of “rose gold” metallic heels & jewelry. The girls wore beautiful muted rose lace dresses and carried gorgeous complimentary bouquets with succulents and bright blooms… all coordinating with the color scheme. Their wedding ceremony took place overlooking the rolling hills of the course and the rushing waterfall below the Patio. Family & friends contributed to the personal nature of their ceremony with readings and special music. After the ceremony, guests gathered on the upper level for an elegant cocktail hour with several different wine options and endless hors d’oeuvres carried by friendly servers. After a beautiful dinner and heartfelt & tearful speeches, Lauren & Pete enjoyed their first dance, after which, their amazing dessert table was open for tasting! A macaroon “tree”, and numerous other decadent desserts were sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. The golden evening light set the stage for some beautiful sunset photos… after which the dancing & fun continued. We are so happy for your both! Congratulations Lauren & Pete!
