Today was the bomb.
Michelle and Dan were married at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in West Allis, WI. We went down to the Milwaukee Art Museum afterward for some photos, and then off to the gorgeous Astor Hotel for the reception. The Astor is unbelievably gorgeous, and the location is fantastic.

Here are a TON of my favorites from the day!
A little pre-ceremony-prayer:
I love these photos of the bridal party... they totally describe who they are. Women: Fierce. Men: Goofballs and trouble makers. Together: Total package.
We had THE most amazing light today. And Michelle's veil was sooo long and fabulous!
Did I mention it was really cold out? 'Cause it was.
There go the fierce ladies again:
Some lovely Bride and Groom portraits:
These birds flew by and Dan spontaneously kissed Michelle on the cheek right at the perfect moment. I almost died of happiness.
This might be, straight up, my favorite Bride/Groom portrait of all time. The light was so amazing, I seriously want to cry I love this photo so damn much:
The walkin' in the street shot:
They had tons of fun details!! Michelle's Mom made the card box. Michelle is in graphic design and made the invitations, programs, and the table numbers are hand painted by her! They also had a series of their grandparents wedding photos framed on the entry table with a little note. Lovely.
The Astor is just gorgeous. I walked down the stairs and saw this room, and almost died.
The first dance:
And we went onto the roof for a night shot of the city. Gorgeous!
And did I mention also that I have a special place in my heart for Brides that make me a name tag? I love them and I collect them all in a little happy box. :)
Thank you guys, today was wonderful! :)
