A Lakefront Wedding at the Discovery World Pavilion

August 6, 2019

Okay, friends.  I am so excited to share this wedding with you today.  And I would be lying if I said I haven’t been waiting an entire year, since the minute I booked Cliff & Hannah’s wedding, to capture it.  In a way, I’m sad that their wedding day is over. But at the same time, I’m so incredibly happy to be able to remember & re-live it over and over again.

Hannah & Cliff are two incredibly special people.  As described by anyone who knows them, they are both warm, kind, graceful, and outgoing. But amazing as they are as individuals, they are an even more special combination. Friends & family joke that Cliff is a real-life Disney prince, and Hannah is like Royalty.

Together, they are a bright shining light that inspires and draws everyone near.

Their day was beautiful (literally, the weather was *perfect*) from their peaceful & surreal First Look, to the Milwaukee lakefront ceremony location on the gorgeous Discovery World property, to the light-filled reception filled with greenery & stunning, unique details that had us feeling weak in the knees. We were in photography heaven!

Thanks to the incredible eye, organization, and execution of Molly Schmelling at Events to a T, the day was flawless from start to finish. We were truly so honored to work beside every single member of the creative team.  The style & details of this wedding went so far beyond our expectations, which is probably why I went into full photo overload with this blog post!  I couldn’t help myself!

Cliff & Hannah, thank you from the very bottom of my heart for trusting us to capture your special day.  You both hold a special place in our hearts, and we loved every minute of your perfect day.  I can’t wait for you to see all of your photos, but here are just a handful of our favorites!  Enjoy!

Can you tell that I was in detail heaven?!  I’m absolutely obsessed with the details of her shoes, and of course her nana’s beautiful ring!

When we found this spot for a First Look, I jumped for joy.  I knew it would be the absolute perfect place.  Private, quiet (except for the sound of the waves) with the most spectacular view.  WIN!!

I just loved their bridal party!  And I knew this would be the perfect group portrait for them.  All we needed was to borrow a few chairs from the ceremony setup.  There’s so much style & personality in this photo – I’m a bit obsessed!

Just look at this glow!!  Gorgeous!

I wish I could take credit for the perfectly-timed sail boat that entered into our sunset portraits, but that part wasn’t me.  All I can say is, WOW!!

Their cat, Norman, made a special appearance!

Yes, their reception had literal MAGIC!  I just love these!

And the day was not complete without a surprise special performance by one of the bride & groom’s favorite musicians, Nash Overstreet from Hot Chelle Rae!
