I am so excited to finally share this Greenhouse elopement shoot with you guys!

Inspired simply by a desire for an organic, intimate greenhouse we selected Monches Farm; a home to field grown perennials, herbs and dried flowers as far as the eye can see. The secluded rural setting, tucked away in a rolling wooded section of southeastern Wisconsin, makes it hard to believe that it’s just 30 minutes from downtown Milwaukee. With its saturated palate of lush greens and one-of-a-kind décor and gardens we knew this would be the perfect setting for Cassandra and Ryan to exchange their hand-written vows to. Et Voila Events designed a swoon-worthy table setting that was the perfect balance of modern while still being organic and delicate. Feisty Flowers created a beautiful, abundant table arrangement that featured Mokara orchids, dutch tulips, ranunculus, roses and dahlias. Cassandra and Ryan’s ceremony showcased a beautiful arbor backdrop laid with a variety of Brazillian greens, Italian ruscus, ferns and florals. The handmade macramé added a beautiful element to the modern themed elopement. Right before sunset, the talented Autumn from Autumn Silva Photography captured the most stunning moments exchanged between Cassandra and Ryan as they walked through the overgrown fields of flowers while they shared laughs and lots of kisses.Hair and makeup by the talented ladies over at Hair by Smash and Lustrous Beauty Studio!

We love it when our couple’s do a first look! We have been photographing weddings for over six years now, and are so excited whenever we get to document a first look! We find it helps make the day run smoother and makes for some super sweet moments!

Milwaukee Kimpton wedding first look Milwaukee Wisconsin club wedding first look If you are newly engaged and wondering ‘what is a first look anyways’, lets break it down! A first look is our way of asking if you and your partner are going to see each other privately before the ceremony. Traditionally, couples would wait for the infamous walk down the isle, however first looks are becoming a more and more popular alternative!

First looks are an opportunity to help calm your nerves! Many times our couples are naturally pretty anxious and emotional prior to their long awaited ceremony. First looks give you the chance to have a private moment together and help wash away some of those nerves. There are not many moments that you will have alone on your wedding day and this can be a great way to get some private time, exchange sweet words and an embrace before the wedding frenzy begins.

First looks also allow you to get a lot of the photos done prior to the ceremony. Photos of the couple, wedding party, and family can take up a nice chunk of time away from your guests! Allowing for some time prior to can free up some time for cocktail hour and socializing! Instead of having to rush through photos to get you back to your event, couples often are less stressed and enjoy their portrait session even more!

Now if you’re really set on doing it the traditional way and seeing each other on your walk down the isle, that is perfectly ok! At the end of the day, this is your wedding day after all! But if you’re on the fence, or worried it will take away from the magic of the ceremony, don’t be! You two will be just as excited to begin your lives together, and generally speaking our couples that cry during the first look, also tend to cry when they see each other during the processional!
