Day two of the double-header was Melissa & Eric's big Milwaukee blowout... aside from a cameo appearance of a short storm to remind us of their storm-riven engagement session, a perfect day it was.. kicking off in the swanky new Potawatomi hotel over looking the city, we hauled off to the exquisite St Josephat Basilica for the formalities, then a quick stop in the Third Ward and Bradford before heading to the ICC for the party replete with an untold number of exquisite examples Melissa's handiwork for the party for the real festivities... and no fires were started thanks to the chinese lanterns which was a huge plus...

Staying local here in Lake Country for one of the cutest couples in town, Rob and Charidee... only a few weeks since hanging out with these two the big day went off beautifully at the Golden Mast on the lake surrounded by equally adorable friends & family, including a warp speed trip back to Nashotah Park with them in the back seat of the truck where they kicked ass only a couple of weeks ago before getting back to the Mast for plenty of party... love these two...

Only a day after November made a guest appearance, a perfect early autumn day greeted the lovely Jess and race car driver Russ and their wonderful friends and family. After all of the guys were present and accounted for from their morning shooting, a quick first-look in the woods was followed by a hay ride down to the pond before going into hiding and then getting hitched amongst the splendor of Milford Hills... all official business out of the way a non-stop party ensued with quick breaks for gorgeous sunset pictures and a surprise firework display...

Watertown got a little more Illinoisy yesterday as a small army came up from south of the border for Lory & Kegan's barn wedding... a quick but truly heartfelt ceremony on the lawn and some sun-drenched portraits later the happy horde descended on the lawn for plenty of beer and plenty of games before they somehow, almost impossibly fit themselves into the barn for dinner, some speeches, some cake-trading, a little basketball and OMG a rammed dance floor... so yeah, Illinoisy was right and richly deserved for such an adorable couple..

Having only seen Ashley & Ross a couple of weeks ago I couldn't wait to see them again so soon... now I just wish they were doing it all over again in a few weeks... pretty sure everyone there yesterday (aside from the chair guys that is) thinks the same thing... as storms teased on and off all day, the whole shindig was shifted into the tent, erected in the yard on the shore of Little Muskego... though the rain drowned out the sound system for a bit, Ashley didn't trip on the big rock in the aisle so it was all a wash...she didnt spill spaghetti sauce on her dress either... or at least the photos will say so and after a kickass set of speeches and pictures as the sun dipped the tiny slanted dancefloor was rammed right up until we left... like i said, wish they would do this more often...

You know it's going to be a good day when you roll up and Nick and the guys are in the church parking lot in beaters and ball shorts drinking beers already... and after a couple of hiccups including forgetting Jaclyn's bouquet at home, things finally kicked off and just kept getting better.. I managed to overcome some homesickness at the foggy bluffs (and more miraculously no one took a digger clambering over the rocks) before hitting up the bar as we continued on to the reception where the capacity of the Black Swan was tested and utterly defeated under the glory of J & N's fantastic friends and family.. the salubrity continued unabated culminating in one of the most contentious dancefloor tip cup battles i've ever seen... lives were nearly lost.. I almost checked the news this morning to make sure there weren't... many couples talk about what a party their wedding will be.. these guys actually were the real deal... Jaclyn & Nick.

Back to one of my favourite spots for the adorable Sabrina & Tyler who found that grocery store dance routines were no match for the infamous 'awkward ten minutes'.. despite this, they soon found their modelling-legs as we navigated nature, pointless bridges, bugs-in-the-eye and soggy cat-tail fields, and before long they were smouldering and climbing on each other in a rather fierce manner... stopping traffic while making out in the middle of the road, it was a long way from those first awkward ten minutes... and they weren't murdered and buried with a telescopic shovel either, so that's a plus...
