Rebecca and Erhan wedding

Rebecca and Erhan had their ceremony at Villa Terrace in Milwaukee. The Villa Terrace might be one of my new favorite venues! The place is right out of Italy! We were able to get a few shots of the bride and groom outside before the guests started coming in for the outdoor ceremony. Then, the rain hit. Everything had to be moved indoors. The room they had their ceremony in wasn't your typical backup. It was a gorgeous room with beautiful paintings on the walls. Loved it!

Reception at Joey Buona's. I loved the Turkish dance they did at the end!

Watching the boys come in.

Don't Shout Films

My husband Jonathan has started filming families and weddings with a Super 8 film movie camera and absolutely loves it! I totally wish we had something like this for our wedding. We've already used it for some family stuff. The hard part is waiting for the film to come back but it's also half the fun!

Jonathan came along to Monica and Nick's wedding back in July and filmed all the highlights of the wedding. I love how it turned out and just adore the vintage look to it. I think the music chosen for it is a funky contrast to the oldness of the film itself. Love!

If you're a bride interested in having your wedding shot on Super 8 film, contact Jonathan, and ask for his special introductory rates. You can find his blog here. He also does family sessions too!

This weekend Jonathan will be coming along to shoot this cool couple's wedding. The wedding hasn't even happened yet and I'm already excited to see it!

Enjoy Monica and Nick's film below!

Alexis and Paul wedding

Ceremony and reception at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.

We first started the day with the guys.

Then off to get pictures of Alexis getting ready.

Paul got Alexis the most thoughtful gift. He bought Alexis a pair of shoes(that she had wanted for awhile) and had someone put in diamonds on the soles(Paul Simon's song "Diamonds on the soles of her shoes" is a song Alexis and Paul really like).

Alexis looked stunning in her dress!

First wedding I've done with bridesmen. Hope it's not the last!

Loved the food they had for their guests. Some of the best I've ever had at a wedding! Catered by Fresco.

Great view of the Capitol on the rooftop!

Loved the red lighting on the bar.

Congratulations! Have a wonderful honeymoon in Greece!
