SNEAK PEEK: ROTHSCHILD PAVILION WEDDING, MEGAN & ALEX

Kate Botwinski Photography, Wausau Wedding Photographer, Backyard Wedding, Wisconsin Weddings, Rothschild Pavilion, Rothschild Pavilion Weddings

Megan and Alex exchanged their vows in Megan’s parents’ backyard, and later celebrated their marriage at the Rothschild Pavilion. We love backyard weddings! This ceremony site was extra special, since the home has stayed in Megan’s family for generations. It is nestled on Lake Wausau, and only a short boat ride across the lake from the Rothschild Pavilion.

This day was a blast. Megan and Alex, along with their wedding party and families, seemed to keep “celebration” at the heart of this day. The mood was light, and happy, with exception to the intimate ceremony vows and the rush of sweet emotions that Alex and Megan shared. It was beautiful to witness the depth of love shared in that backyard.

Holy beauty.

It was Katelin in her Monique Lhuillier blush wedding dress. Actually, it was Katelin in her robe without makeup, a dress, or any accessories on. She was already truly breathtaking. It was the buzz in the air of the St. Regis Deer Valley bridal suite overlooking the mountains of Park City, Utah.

It was the custom ceremony alter (the whole entire scene, actually) designed by the fabulous Michelle Leo Events, and executed by Blooms and Blossoms. It was the floor length sequin bridesmaid dresses, and open air tented reception with its sheer white draping blowing in the fresh mountain air. It was all “holy beauty.”

Since the day that Nubia reached out to us about photographing her wedding day, we knew we HAD to photograph her and John. She was deployed at the time, and through just a few email exchanges, we shared a mutual excitement about her future wedding photos.

Fast forward to August 1st when we met Nubia and John at The Wilds Golf Club… we were in awe over all of the beauty and design that Nubia had devoted to her day; but even more, we were moved by the way these two people love each other. We celebrated their great love through photos at the lake, and Fort Snelling Chapel, where Nubia’s commitment to the United States Army, and her father’s service in the United States Navy were honored.

This was one of those perfect June wedding days; the weather, the company, Boe Chapel at St. Olaf College, THIS bride and groom… There is a lot that we could say about how kind these newlyweds are, how truly happy they are, how they just seem to take care of each other and everyone around them. Let us just tell you that they were completely smothered in love throughout this celebration. It made us happy to witness the outpouring of love on such a deserving couple.

Kyle never stopped smiling, even in the in between moments, he was smiling. Greta, she’s amazing. She’s always a light, and such a gem. We adore this couple, and we especially love the way Greta finds a spot on Kyle’s chest to snuggle herself up into (see last image).

This Loring Pasta Bar and Varsity Theater wedding was one we will never forget. Sam and Claire created a unique, fun, and memorable celebration for their guests.

We wish them a lifetime of happiness.
