Today Leigh and Ersin had a totally classy, retro funky wedding. The ceremony was in their backyard, and just to try to explain to you how cool it was... they had an 8-piece brass band (Mama Dig Down) playing "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5. I knew it was going to be a great day after that! They had vintage touches everywhere, from gorgeous flowers from The Flower Lady to the incredible dress Leigh was wearing, and they ended the day with Bruch and a reception at one of my favorite Milwaukee venues for a smaller wedding: The Lake Park Bistro.
Here are a ton of my favorite images. :)
New favorite groom getting ready photo. LOVE this.
Abbott was showing me how Tulip smiles. Kids!
The kick-butt band!
Their first married kiss was lovely, but the second one was even sweeter:
They took a horse-drawn carriage to the Lake Park Bistro after the ceremony. What a nice relaxing time for the Bride and Groom, and how gorgeous! People in the neighborhood were so intrigued by the carriage, they all came out to watch. They broke into applause when Leigh and Ersin came out of the house. I love how Brides and Grooms get to be like celebrities for a day!
I was very excited that the South bridge at Lake Park Bistro wasn't still under construction. I've been dying to shoot at the light house, and we got to today!
The bridal party colors included this fantastic Tiffany Blue. So pretty!
LOVE all their details! The flowers were just gorgeous. Also, they had these great books on the tables that all the guests could fill out. They had things like, "What is the best romantic place we should visit?" and, "What is the best marriage advice you've heard?" Totally clever.
I love that everyone STOOD to toast the Bride and Groom. Made such a great photo.

A little moment they took alone. But, I saw it through the window. ;)
Abbott was such a great dancer, even the band wanted to adopt him to go on tour. :)
