Stephanie+Derek

We kicked off September and our busy season with a beautiful wedding in Minocqua at the Country Club over Labor Day. This wedding was a bit different for me since Stephanie, our second shooter, couldn’t be there. Instead Jen, who’s wedding photo business is “From Jen’s Lens” filled her shoes. Jen is a good friend of mine, it was fun to spend the day together and the wedding was just all around perfect. We had fun, and our photos show it.

Today, is the third week of September and we have been busy every day. As a matter of fact, we have a wedding this afternoon! Because of that, and since a picture says a thousand words, the rest of this post will just be photos. Hopefully soon we will add some thoughts. But we’ll keep it short for now :-)

They handwrote some sweet personal vows.

Okay some things I just have to write! They did a first look. Derek waited on the dock and Stephanie came and snuck up behind him a few minutes later.

They stayed on the dock alone a short while. This is where they exchanged and read their vows, privately. During the ceremony they just kept it brief.

After this we photographed the bridal party and a few formal portraits of the two of them.

And then the ceremony began.

These two boys are officially brothers, they are going to have so much fun together.

And they are now officially sisters! It was so cute, the older girl was dropping the petals as she should, but the younger was confused and kept picking them up!

They did a “Sand Ceremony” But the sand was glass, they send it in after and have it melted into one memorial of this day and their unity as a family.
