Mitch + Rachel | Married | A Plum-Colored Wedding at the Silver Spring Golf Club in Menomonee Falls, WI.

August 12, 2015

You are going to love the couple on the blog today – they are about as cute (+ SMILEY) as they come : ) Their love is out-of-this-world electric + giddy-like … you know what kind I’m talking about!! It will be easy to see as soon as you lay eyes on their portraits!! : )

Mitch + Rachel met while both studying engineering during their undergrad at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. They passed each other hundreds + hundreds + hundreds of times in the hallways of the Engineering Building, + the glances they stole every time they made eye contact were unforgettable for the both of them – they both have told me this so many times, + it was brought up again + again at their wedding, too! However, during those passings, both were either in a different relationship, or not looking for a relationship at the time for one reason or another … you get the idea!! It finally got to the point where Mitch couldn’t take it any longer + had to find out the name of the beautiful brunette with big eyes that he kept. on. seeing. : )

It’s joked that Mitch chased + chased Rachel – but, he GOT the girl! I mean, she is now his WIFE!! AND she is head over heels for him : ) The “stars aligned” for these two + what started as a friendship quickly became something more. A love set afire that just burns + burns + burns : ) The best men + maids of honor talked about how these two just can’t get enough of  each other – how the way they simply look at each other, SO lovingly, is undeniable. Parents were in (joyful) tears as they spoke about the couple’s relationship + how PROUD they were to be welcoming both Mitch + Rachel into their families as daughter + son-in-law : ) There was just SO much joy!!! And as a result, the dance floor was FILLED the entire night as everyone was SO happy + excited to celebrate Mitch + Rachel saying yes to forever : ) What an amazing day!! Congratulations you two – you know just how much we LOVE you guys!!!!!!!

I love Rachel’s ring!! It’s just so easy to photograph!!! : )

How all the bridesmaids know Rachel : )

I just can’t get over these engineer-esque cuff links!!

And then the guys had too much fun with this!!! ; )

Rachel gave Mitch a surprise note right before she came down the aisle!!!


I love the foliage on the side of the country club!! We HAD to shoot here!! The little purple flowers sprouting from the bushes also matched the bridesmaid dresses!!

I’m not sure if I could love this one more!!!!

Mitch is the king of the dip!! He LOVES dipping his bride!! 🙂

We actually weren’t allowed to shoot ON the golf course at all, so we had to get creative!! Thankful for this super cool, old, silo-type building with more vines!!! So romantic!!!

Love, love, love these!!!!

As always, a loving thank you to Mitch + Rachel’s wedding day vendors!
