You won't have to wait too long to see these guys again, with their wedding being this coming Saturday...but after months of trying, between working 5 jobs each and the weather, we finally managed to hook up and break them in with their modeling debut in sunny, sweaty Pewaukee to give them a break from last minute wedding planning...

Pretty fitting that this gorgeous pair of teachers managed to school just about everyone on how to have a kick ass wedding... not sure where the continuous consumption of copious amounts of beer fits into that scholastic theme, but it was present from start to finish in Milwaukee, out to Tosa then back again.. one could posit it was responsible for the abundance of tears during the ceremony.. or maybe that was the love.. probably the love.. maybe the beer helped...either way, it was an amazing day for these two and their kick-ass friends and family..

Nothing like a trip down to K-town to keep things interesting.. and Amanda and Pete really brought it with their fantastic day at the KCC. To say they did it their way would be an understatement, and it really felt more like a huge party where everyone took a quick break in the middle of it to watch them get married before they were rewarded with breakfast for dinner (amazeballs) and donuts instead of cake.. sprinkle in a liberal amount of Archer quotes, some real down home Kenosha locations for pictures and a whole lot of hockey-watching and cocktails all tot he soundtrack of Amanda's impossibly happy expressionism and you know exactly why the rain that was forecast didnt dare show its face until everything was done... yep.. these guys are Fancy as Fluff.

Off to see the lovely Morgan & Coley, be reunited with the Morello clan and most likely triple of the population of sleepy little Paoli with their wedding at the historic mill.. with beautiful weather, no bugs, a stand-up comedian as the minister, an ice cream shop at their disposal, more beer than you can shake a mason jar at and a whole band crammed on the veranda, it surely was as perfect as day as these two surely deserved... even if Coley is a Cardinals fan.Morgan & Coley.

Reppin' the Indiana in Cedarburg.. that's the adorable Lauren & Michael... we began our blind date outside of a candy store in the 'Burg before slipping off into a nearby alley to get their GQ on... after breaking the ice up against the wall we took it to the streets and meandered to the park (where their may or may not have been a picnic for the local Ozaukee County Scientologists), changed shoes a few times, stroked Michaels beard a whole lot before heading to the local brewery, hid in a few doorways, dodged a kid in the stroller before finding a motorbike and a couple of over-friendly labs.. yup..totally a kick ass afternoon with a kick ass couple...

If rain on your wedding day is, as the old saying goes, good luck, the gorgeous Megan & Eric should be set for the foreseeable future.. a couple so cute, even November had to show up for their big day...nevertheless, it might as well have been 80 and sunny out for as much fun as they managed to have.. back into the GQ groove they rocked on their engagement shoot for shots at the Intercontinental, then out to Tosa for the official stuff and back to the city...first stop my favourite warehouse where we tested the aerodynamics of a bridal party (verdict: not too shabby)..before getting back to the Marcus to wrap up and get down to the cocktail business where the sun showed up just in time for the sunset...all pretty perfect...heck I even got to listen to some dubstep before the night was over...

There is zero exaggeration involved when I say this has been a monumental feat of scheduling to get the gorgeous and elusive Kendell & Blake in front of the camera, but all of that disappointment was totally worth it as the latest wash-out turned out to be a kick ass afternoon of weather for a kick ass couple, (even though I almost stalked down a random couple before they arrived).. with Kendell's unruly hair for nourishment thanks to the wind, their debut modelling session proved to be a complete win, so much so that random people were taking their pictures... and the best part of it all is that because this session took so long, it's only a few weeks until they'll be back here again.. can't wait..

Hauling out to Poynette again for the wonderful Mindy & Mitch who laughed their way through their soggy engagement session last fall.. thankfully no rain for them this time despite the best threats from the NWS as not only were they blessed with a beautiful warm spring day to sign away their lives to one another, but I was blessed with my first sunburn of 2015... after Mindy received "The Gift Of Mitch" much kickassery was to be had around the barn with both beers and nails being hammered aplenty before settling down for beer, dinner, speeches and rapping, topped off with more beer and dancing and a last minute night time portrait session where we learned than in a race between my camera's autofocus in the dark and Mitch's back while holding a dip, my camera definitely almost broke Mitch...

Last time we saw Kristin & Jim we were fighting off snowfall, happily spring sprung nicely for them yesterday, nature cooperating nicely for their gorgeous wedding kicking off in Oconomowoc and ending up for the party in Pewaukee... happily for me, my Star Wars wedding duck was broken with a Star Wars send off down the aisle, complete with lightsaber-armed groomsmen (thanks to a midnight Walmart run) and a few stormtroopers sliding around the dancefloor...
