St. John's Military Academy and Turner Hall Ballroom Milwaukee Wedding | Drew and Sage

Drew and Sage met at a wedding through his cousin, who was Sage's co-worker. They sat at table 8, talked the whole night, and hit it off. :) Only problem was, he lived in California and she lived in Wisconsin. Fast forward a bit, and Drew moved to Milwaukee where they got married at St. John's Military Academy and started their lives together. :) 

They're the type of people who make you feel like best friends from the moment you meet them. So fun, so in love with each other, and 100% soulmates. 

It was an honor to be a part of their day!

Northeast Minneapolis In-home Engagement Session | Nate and Steph

As if you couldn't already tell in the photos that these two are SO sweet and fun to be around, let me confirm it. I showed up at their house in NE MInneapolis on a drizzly Sunday afternoon. Forced them to cuddle and drink coffee, and sit in their stairwell cause I'm sure they do that everyday. ;) Then we walked around their block and captured them just being sweet together in this season of their lives. How fun is it that they'll have photos of them in their first place together to look back on? Love love love. 

You'll be seeing more of these two this December with their wedding at Day Block Event Center! Stay tuned.

Five Event Center Minneapolis Associate Wedding | Tyler and Kelly


This was an Associate wedding shot by Aurora (and Madeline as the second shooter)! I met Kelly last year when I photographed her sister, Sarah's wedding. Their family is full of sweetness and creativity. It was a blast going through their photos and seeing some familiar faces! 

After meeting in PT school, they became friends who watched the Bachelor on Monday nights (what a guy!). Clearly it led to so much more, thus their wedding day! Enjoy some sneaks from their day. :)

The Creamery Downtown and Gather on Broadway Green Bay Wedding | Elizabeth and Alex

I kicked off their wedding weekend with them at their Creamery Downtown rehearsal dinner on the riverwalk! One of my favorite spots in Green Bay (try their food, you will not be disappointed) and SUCH a fun spot for a rehearsal dinner! The next morning I met them at the new Lodge Kohler and was in heaven from the start. The day continued to unfold with a first look on the street Alex's parents live on, edible flowers in the drinks.. more of this please!), friends in the bridal party who've known each other since high school, and just a fantastic hometown celebration of a high school 'fling', that dissolved and later came back around as husband and wife. :) 

They now live in Chicago (see their Chicago engagement session here) with so many fun travels on the calendar! First one on the calendar as Mr. and Mrs. was a honeymoon in Africa, nbd. 

I say it all the time, but seriously: what an honor it is to be a part of all of these memories and follow these fun couples around on their wedding day! 


Without further adieu, here is a sneak into their day.
