Gwen & Matt were married at my favorite church of all time – Our Lady of the Lake in Ashland, WI. This church has the most gorgeous light EVER! The windows are huge and balcony has the perfect spot to get sweeping views of the ceremony. Marie from Look! Look! in Ashland shot this with me, and we had a ton of fun. You can see the slideshow from their wedding here.
The weather itself for Gwen & Matt’s wedding was cold, windy, & rainy, but we found a beautiful light from a window in the basement of the church for a few soft bridal portraits of Gwen before the ceremony. They didn’t want to see each other beforehand, so it was very fun to see Matt’s look when Gwen walked down the aisle! I am a traditionalist at heart, so I love it when couples don’t see each other before :).
After the ceremony we braved the fabulous Lake Superior wind and got some shots down by the Oredock in Ashland. The conditions actually made for some cool dramatic hair movement in the photos ;).
The reception was at Explorers Point – I love the northwoods theme of the restaurant. There were a ton of kids at the reception – and they were all adorable! They were also completely sugared up – so I had a great time getting photos of them running around…
A very sweet touch was Gwen & Matt’s cake topper – it was actually her grandma’s! They restored it just for the wedding, and put it in a snowglobe to further protect it.
Congratulations Gwen & Matt! Marie & I had an amazing time at your wedding – thank you for having us! All photos will be up and available to purchase from here in about 3 weeks.
