Congratulations to Blu and Steve who got married on Saturday at Sugarland, a beautiful estate in southern Wisconsin. Blu was drawn to Sugarland because of the classic red barn, the rustic yet elegant feel, and the quintessential Wisconsin atmosphere.
Blu is one stylish bride! And Steve is an incredibly easy going, up for anything, great guy! The lovebirds were also very lucky because our wild and unpredictable spring weather turned out to be absolutely beautiful later in the day. The wedding ceremony was romantic, being held under the ancient oak tree in the middle of the property. Family and friends flew in from Brooklyn and Florida and others drove over to spend the day or weekend, and the location made for a calming rural retreat.
Prior to the wedding Blu sifted through Pinterest and the number of ideas and level of decoration she had time to carry out was unbelievable. Everywhere you looked were birds, branches, charming vintage décor and pink candy. -Beautiful work Blu!
As the photographer, I’m super focused on the environment and the light, so the bright hazy day paired with the color palette -the grays, blues, and raw umber hues found in nature by the creek was just the place for Blu and Steve to have photographs. I thought there was something really beautiful in the raw nature, branches, vines, rushing creek, that was just the style Blu and Steve were aiming for. Later, during the reception, lightning danced in the sky and we were all brave to go outdoors for one last photograph of the evening.
Congratulations to Blu and Steve! May this be the start of a wonderful and exciting life together!
