Michelle and Dan - a West Allis Wedding!

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.

Hair: Allure Hair & Nail Studio
Church: St. Paul's Lutheran Church
Venue: Astor Hotel
Flowers: Chamberlains Flower Shop
Dress: Savvy Bride
Cake: Aggie's Cakes
DJ: DJ's Unlimited

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:

Gorgeous Bride:

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 rings:

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! :)

It's a crime you can't be at every wedding to create such beautiful pictures. Just amazing.

I'm such a bum for saying the same thing in every comment, but it's true!

That black and white graphic theme they've got is absolutely beautiful! And they're a gorgeous couple - love the photo of just the two of them on the metal walk with the sea behind them - lush!

Lovely photos. I especially love the one of the goofballs!!!

I love all the photos- you are so right- the light is amazing!

And I feel that I have to note something- I LOVE that her favors said "Stay Classy". I dont know if thats a reference to Anchorman or just a coincidence. But at least when I saw it I got a giggle :P
