On a day trip from Stevens Point which included an epic suit fitting and some light antiquing, a trip to the Fifth Ward saw Bailey & Austin's modelling debut at the dirtiest warehouse in town, strolling around the train tracks and numerous questionable brick walls, disturbing a parking attendant who obviously had no business being where he was given how he peeled out of there, discussions of when it suitable to lick the bar and an American Gothic recreation with a filthy mop..pretty much just your average Friday afternoon jaunt with Stevens Point's most kickass couple... and don't worry guys, the panhandler got me too...

Part deux for the evening it was off to meet the fabulous Heather and Will, impeccably dressed for a tromp through the woods at Whitnall Park... with the amount of walking, Heather deserves serious props for negotiating the terrain in those cute little heels.. though hiking boots would hardly have worked with the gorgeous floof of a skirt bought specifically for the twirling and dipping courtesy of Will.. the easy flow of their modelling debut came to a screeching halt with the organized chaos of the cameo appearance of Margot and Brewer at the end where much wrestling and pooping was involved, which hopefully isn't a premonition of the wedding reception...

With her ankle now bionic and Pete's cold in the rear-view, it was off once again to the grotty & gritty old warehouse on Water, this time at Amanda's request for a quick romantic tetanus tour complete with a potentially stolen car with a body inside. A curiously uncooperative sun did it's best to unsettle my chi as we dodged broken glass, broke through a chainlink fence and discussed wide-ranging topics such as hookah-roulette at the reception...can't wait to see these guys again in a few short weeks..

If I have to come out of my winter hibernation for anyone, it would be the gorgeous Jessica & Dennis..last seen in the rolling meadows of Waukesha the party was relocated in Grafton, and they were blessed with a perfectly sprung spring day for their nuptials.. kicking off at the Black Swan for the formalities, a quick trip out to get their GQ on, then to a bar and back to the BS for the finale including not only a rousing sing song and Fireball shots for the room during speeches, but an exquisite, absolutely kickass serenade for their first dance... they set the bar really, *really* high for this season.. totally worth my out-of-wedding-shape body being crippled for a few days...wouldn't have it any other way...Jessica & Dennis. Married. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.

The final wedding of the year with the lovely Jenna & Tyler, and quite a fitting close out for this Christmas Extravaganza, starting and ending at the sumptuous Wisconsin Club where the day began with moving furniture and Christmas trees, and ended up with a banging dancefloor and a couple of brothers in drag... throw in some Dickensian carol singers, horses & carriages, Father Christmas, a wedding ceremony and what sounded like a thousand sleigh bells to summon a kiss during dinner and you might have a vague insight into how much fun the day was, and so richly deserved for this kick-ass couple and their wonderful family and friends...

A long-awaited return to the Schlitz Audubon center, and an even more eagerly anticipated rendezvous with Steph and Pete who rather unlikely probably had a colder time in their fall engagement session, the balmy December mooting the worries planning for a winter wedding... thankfully they were just as blessed in every other aspect of their big day, surrounded by their wonderful friends and family who gathered late for the ceremony with plenty of audience participation including some ring-warming, lots of cheering for the many ropes the officiant used to tie them up together and a native-american yarn-less cats cradle and some minor carpentry for the happy couple... much better than sitting and singing... not that there wasn't plenty of that when the dancefloor kicked off...

Round two for the day took us to the balmy Bradford beach...always beautiful in December...if you squint...which you probably do thanks to the cutting wind...but aside from that and the crashing waves it's gorgeous... not as gorgeous as Sarah & Matt however, who laughed their way through the entire shoot, blew a few kisses, only snotted on each other a couple of times and didnt whine as I dragged them across the beachfront before retiring up to Lake Park where lions were not mounted and a brigadier general's horse was not used to crack open a couple of bottles...because nothing says class like drinking beer in the park on a Sunday morning...Sarah & Matt.

Some people's dream wedding location is somewhere tropical.. Cancun? Somewhere majestic.... Colorado's Rocky peaks?.. For Jess, it was the Lakefront Brewery. Sadly they no longer host weddings, so as a small consolation, she arm-barred them into letting us do Jess & Nate's engagement session there, and talked our way downstairs because nothing says romance like those kettles and vats... shining in the Sunday morning sun like beacons of love and happiness... after the session I do believe they were off to another brewery.. they may still be there as I type this.. who knows.. seems there's only one thing they love more than beer and that's each other..

Opening day of hunting season, and young buck Brett's days of goin' stag are officially over after finally getting a license and bagging the gorgeous doe-eyed Natalie and a herd of 'deerest' friends and family were on hand to fawn over the both of them yesterday up in foggy Poynette... OK, I"m done with the hunting puns as impressive as they were... but not as impressive as Natalie & Brett's big day yesterday where the barn was jammed full for their wedding.. so if you were wondering why the crappy weather let up for a day, well, this was obviously it and it was richly deserved.. hopefully their honeymoon up north for hunting season is just as fantastic...
