Milwaukee Area Wedding Photography at The Carriage House | Oconomowoc, WI

Emma and Steve were set up by their mutual friends. From the first time they interacted, they knew that they were going to be inseparable. Their first date went well and ended with Emma giving Steve a foot rub... guys, isn't that when you know you've found The One?!

Emma and Steve selected The Carriage House in Oconomowoc to host their Wisconsin spring wedding. As a Milwaukee wedding photographer, I am blessed with the opportunity to explore many amazing Wisconsin wedding venues and I must say that the charm and elegance of The Carriage House at Lac La Belle is elevated in comparison to many others! The fresh, crisp white interior, vaulted ceilings and sprawling windows easily attract brides with a classic, refined style. Of course the grounds are a major draw for many couples seeking both a luxury venue as well as beautiful natural surroundings.

The happy couple exchanged special gifts; a boudoir photoshoot album for the groom and a photobooth as well as an impromptu visit from their pups for the bride.

Unpredictability is the name of the game when planning a spring wedding in Wisconsin, so Emma and Steve watched the radar closely. As their wedding day approached, the decision was made to move the ceremony indoors to the 1896 Room... a sound decision, indeed, as thunder roared and rain poured down as they exchanged their vows.

They say rain on a wedding day brings good luck and if that is the case then Steven and Emma's marriage should be swimming in it! :) After they said I do, we ventured outside for some portraits of the newlyweds and were quickly blessed with a double rainbow in the backdrop. Rainbows in the sky coupled with the romance and intimacy of using clear umbrellas as a prop made for unique and memorable wedding portraits.

The night meandered on and the grand march had everyone cheering as the newlyweds entered their wedding reception. The speeches told by the maid of honor and best man were endearing and heartfelt and finally, the dance floor was energetic and joyful from the moment the dj dropped the first hit!

Thank you to Steve and Emma for having me share in your love story... it was an honor to make memories for you! Congratulations again!
