Heidi and Dave :: Married - Appleton, Wisconsin

May 30, 2009

Heidi and Dave are an amazing couple living and working in downtown Chicago. They love living in the big city but decided to have their wedding in Heidi's hometown of Appleton, Wisconsin.

Heidi is a very organized person... having just competed the Boston marathon proves that she is also hard working and dedicated. So when I arrived at her parents home and found a hand written note of things to remember on the wedding day I wasn't surprised. She must have gotten her skills from her mom who put together by hand over a hundred place cards that included a cut out of the Chicago skyline.

Heidi and Dave had custom invitations made as well as a custom wedding ring plate with their names and date on it. Their wedding colors where a cornflower blue and were incorporated in everything from the cocktail length bridesmaids dresses to the linens and chair bows. Everything was beautiful!

I had the pleasure of shooting with second photographer Mia Stevens. Mia was a great addition to the day... here is a link to her blog to see her upcoming post of her photos from this wedding. Mia and I are both members of the Collection, an amazing group of photographers who not only refer each other when we are booked... but also second shoot together, travel to conventions and even cover weddings in the case of an emergency.

It was a great pleasure to shoot Heidi and Dave's wedding... Congratulations!!!! Here are my favorites from the day....

I love photographing the bride and groom from different angles at church.

This blue wall was the perfect compliment to their wedding colors!

The lighting and the food at the Riverview Coutnry Club was fabulous!

A beautiful reception location! Look at the shape of this room!!!
