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 ARIA Minneapolis Wedding was pretty magical. Jenn and Noel exchanged their vows under Aria’s sparkly chandeliers, surrounded by candlelight, and Studio Fleurette‘s amazing work (we love when Dani brings her floral expertise to any venue, but especially when she brings the outside IN at large, historic spaces like this.

It was an honor to document this day with you, Jenn and Noel. We are looking forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.

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. They were supported with eight bridesmaids and groomsmen, who all contributed their best to make this day special for The Franks. The dance floor was packed, the ceremony was special, the speeches were unforgettable, and Sam and Claire made the most of their day by seeing each other early on, and enjoying the Dinkytown streets together before they became husband and wife. We wish them a lifetime of happiness.

Happy Friday, Friends! We are so happy to share a glimpse into this happy engagement session with you today! Angie and Nic recently invited us to join them at their cabin in Northern Wisconsin for their engagement session. We fell in love. The whole session felt like one big high to photograph. Between the endless fields of green, the lake, and their sweet loving relationship, this was a really beautiful session. What a bonus to add this little yellow lab of theirs. Dear Drake, we wanted to keep you.

Kate Botwinski Photography, Wausau Wedding Photographers, Husband and Wife Minnesota Photographers, Minneapolis Wedding Photographer, Film Photographers, Wisconsin Weddings

These newlyweds are so loved and supported in their marriage. We are talking 400 wedding guests, a wedding party of twenty-five, a reception filled with heartfelt stories from guests, families, and best friends. The day was full of meaning and celebration that extended beyond Jenna and Lee’s nine year long love story.

Jenna wore her grandmother’s wedding dress to walk down the aisle, which her mom had also worn on her wedding day. The father-daughter dance was extra special, as Jenna’s dear friend sang a father-daughter childhood favorite song. There were few dry eyes around the dance floor as Lee and his mom shared a dance about unending love, sang by his sister. It was such a beautiful day, and we are so grateful to have shared it with the Breit and Pecha families (and this amazing group of twenty-five friends!!).

When a couple uses a real, shiny blue guitar as their wedding “guest book,” you know they are a cool couple… and they probably really love music! Alison and Troy’s story began a few years back when they were each asked by engaged friends to perform music at their upcoming wedding. They both agreed, and had to meet up to practice their music together before the wedding. Troy was on guitar and Alison’s shared her talents on vocals. Life changed for them when they met each other through music and their friend’s wedding. They had no idea at the time that they were going to one day be husband and wife, and they were definitely not looking for love at the time.

madison capitol engagement | anna & eric

Madison Wisconsin is lucky to have this adorable couple. Eric and Anna love their city. It’s where they met, where they continue to achieve academic success, teach, coach, play sports, and indulge in the finest Wisconsin beers and curds with their best friends and old roommates on Capitol Square. There are undoubtedly very big life plans in store for this intelligent and likable pair, but for the time being, Madison is lucky to keep them.

Our engagement sessions are usually quite laid back and lovely, and this day was no different with Eric and Anna, except it was extra special because they took us back to the house where they first started falling in love with each other, a few years prior. We just HAD to photograph them on the front sidewalk where the memories began, and share a few laughs over the days where they both knew they wanted to be together in the old college house!

We would be willing to bet that anyone who has ever known Rachel and Scott have said, “You will make great parents one day.” The Phelan’s welcomed their first son into the world last month, and are already raising the bar when it comes to parenting. Both kind, compassionate, talented, and truly intelligent people, we shouldn’t have been surprised when Rachel showed us Baby Will’s nursery, and we discovered that Scott built not only Will’s crib, but the dresser AND the bed in the nursery…! What a wonderful man for Will to look up to as he grows and learns.

It was a day of laughter, flirty glances, kissing, and more laughing at Dellwood Country Club. We knew it would be all of these things when it comes to Erin and Matt. They have that I’ll-always-be-there-for-you, no matter what, kind of relationship. They have a friendship and a bond, and they can both recall the exact moment when they had found “the one” in each other. We adore this couple so much.

Erin and Matt, you’re the real deal. We hope you’re enjoying every minute of your honeymoon this week! Cheers to your wedded bliss…
