I love that Zach & Brittiany got married on the first day of fall here in Wisconsin. Many Wisconsinites would argue that fall in our state is the best time of the year — crisp air, leaves turning colors, apple orchards and pumpkin patches, hot chocolate, scarves, Sunday football … the list goes on : ) I love that every year, as fall arrives, Zach and Brittiany get to celebrate a change in season and another year of marriage. It’s just the perfect time for an anniversary!
We had THE most amazing weather for Zach at Brittiany’s day at The River Club of Mequon. The sun was shining down on them all day long and it wasn’t too hot or too cold — it truly was just right! For photos on the golf course and an outdoor ceremony, you really could not have asked for anything better!!
One of the things that I really realized for the first time on Zach and Brittiany’s day was how fun it is to see our couples with the bridal parties. You can get to know a couple pretty well at their engagement session but then getting to see them interact with their friends all day long introduces an even greater depth to who they are! It was SO fun to see these two with their bridal parties because I felt like I really got to see the FUN, confident and outgoing sides of both Zach and Brittiany! The day was just full of laughter and celebration with their crew and it was such a joy to watch them with those they love most all day long : ) It is SO clear that they are absolutely cherished as friends.
I can’t wrap up this post without commenting on how breathtaking Brittiany looked in her Maggie Sottero wedding gown. It was perfect for her. She looked like a fairytale princess and everyone kept commenting all day long on how beautiful she looked! Zach was brought to tears when he saw her for the first time during their first look and then again as she came down the aisle with her dad : ) It is so special to see how much he loves and adores Brittiany and let me tell you — I am happy to photograph it!!!!! <3
Both Zach and Brittiany’s parents talked at length in their speeches about how much they loved and respected the person their son/daughter had chosen to marry. How Zach was the PERFECT compliment to Brittiany and vice versa. I thought it was so beautiful to see how they both noticed this separately and right away about Zach and Brittiany’s relationship and were just overjoyed to gain a new son/daughter-in-law that was an incredible fit to their family.
Zach and Brittiany — thank you SO much for sharing your day with us. We love you guys and are so, SO happy for you! Now enjoy some of our favorites from your day … it was hard to choose!!! : )
I love the very special relationship that these two share <3
Just SO gorgeous, Brittiany!!!!!
A very special thank you to Zach & Brittiany’s wedding day team!
