Wisconsin Bride Magazine | 2018 Best of Awards.

January 11, 2018

For me, this time of year is special.

Let me explain: the past couple of years, Maison and I have attended the Wisconsin Bride Awards in Milwaukee (because we always seem to be gone when they are in Madison!). We get to get all dressed up and I get to spend the night celebrating the person I love the most with some of the people that we love and respect the most! We get to laugh and reminisce on the year and relive all of the fun couples we got to celebrate and celebrate with. Our WHY. I get to look over at her with admiration — no matter how well we do — and feel like the luckiest man in the room.

So this year I come to you all with a favor.

Not for me, not for our business, but for my beautiful, smart, and amazing wife.

If she has in some way impacted your life, would you consider voting for her to win the Wisconsin Bride Awards this year? This woman truly puts her heart and soul into not only the work she does but the PEOPLE she works with. She is passionate about photography, yes, but even more so the celebration of the commitment to marriage our couples make.

I get to celebrate this woman everyday of my life but I can’t love her in this way without you guys! You all mean the world to her and I know that (beyond a shadow of a doubt) this would make her feel so loved.

Thanks everyone!
