Brittany and Mathias met as freshman at Marquette University where they both lived in the Abbosttsford dormitory. Brittany's first thought of Mathias is that he was goofy, and Mathias remembers Brittany wearing a handmade Harry Potter shirt. It wasn't soon after that Brittany and Mathias had their first date. Kristen, Brittany's sister, told everyone during wedding speeches that Mathias showed up hours early because it wanted to spend as much time with Brittany as possible 😍

As you'll see below, the Joan of Arc Chapel is important to the couple for three reasons:

  1. it represents where they first met on the Marquette University campus

  2. it is where Mathias proposed to Brittany the day after Christmas

  3. it's a reminder that God is great and all-loving

Mathias loves how Brittany is a fantastic role model, and how she values her relationship with God.  Brittany loves how Mathias always encourages her towards her goals, and how he loves her unconditionally. 

As you scroll down and view Brittany and Mathias's beautiful wedding, you'll easily see how much they love each other — and are loved by their family!

Thank you Brittany and Mathias for allowing me to capture your beautiful day!


Jacqueline + Jon were officially my first wedding of 2016! 

The day began with friends and family setting up at Rustic Manor 1848. Assorted china, succulents, soft pink quilts, white linens, eucalyptus garlands and antique pieces made venue feel warm and welcoming. 

RAW Beautie and Lustrous Beauty (great job ladies) made Jacqueline into one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen! Her dress from Bliss Bridal was flawless, and Jacqueline wore her grandmother Dorthy's broach on her bouquet. But, my favorite part of Jacqueline's bridal look were her Hunter boots 😊

Jacqueline + Jon had their first look under an outdoor chandelier, and the look on Jon's face was sooo heartwarming!

The ceremony took place in the loft of the barn with live music and Jon's college friend officiating the ceremony. Afterwards everyone congratulated Jacqueline + Jon in a receiving line outside on the sunny patio. The Spotted Cow started pouring and everyone gathered together for group pictures.

The family styled dinner by North Star Bistro was one of my favorite parts of the day, because I could enjoy a delicious meal with my immediate family on my great grandmother's rose china (thanks Jacqueline for being so sweet to invite the Zelenkas!). For dessert Jacqueline + Jon had donated cheesecakes for everyone to enjoy with fresh coffee.

The speeches involved tears, laughs and a creative rap by the bridesmaids. Soon after everyone was itching to dance to live bluegrass music by The Mecan River Ramblers
