Colleen & Brian had such a lovely, fun-filled day for their garden wedding at Milwaukee’s gorgeous Villa Terrace! The day started with them getting ready in different picturesque rooms of the museum; Collen and her bridesmaids were able to take in the views and see the ceremony being set up while Brian and the guys shared some laughs in the stately library.
Soon it was time for their stunning outdoor ceremony that overlooked Lake Michigan. We love all of the emotion seen during their ceremony, ranging from laughter to tears of joy as everyone enjoyed some thoughtful readings, personal vows that Colleen & Brian wrote for each other, and touching music performed by Colleen’s brothers.
Announced as Newlyweds, they were elated and made their way down the aisle with applause all around. We love the look of excitement on their faces as their witnesses signed their marriage license!
Then we headed to the beautiful gardens for portraits; we couldn’t have asked for a better evening with its perfect “golden hour” lighting! Colleen & Brian looked absolutely in love as we made our way around the gardens. Afterward, they joined their guests at their reception. With doors open, guests could take in the fresh air at a table inside or outside, and everyone had fun socializing as they made their way around the various delicious dinner stations.
After the sun set, we were all treated to some great speeches honoring the newlyweds before it was time to dance under the stars! An amazing evening was had by all.
Congratulations, Colleen & Brian! You had a perfect wedding day, and it was such a joy being your photographer! :)
