Kim and Dan :: Married - Door County, WI

May 29, 2009

I met Kim and Dan for the first time in Milwaukee at Joey Buona's Pizzeria. We sat and chatted and clicked instantly. They were planning their Door County wedding as a bit of a destination retreat... a bit easier logistically than their original thoughts of getting married in Vegas.

You may remember this fun loving couple their engagement session that I photographed in March.

Kim and Dan's ceremony was at Stella Marris Parish in Egg Harbor. Faith is an important part of their lives and getting married in a church so beautiful and quaint made the ceremony even more memorable.

The highlight of the day was our personal tour guide/trolley driver. He drove us to Peninsula State Park for a woodsy shot stippled with blue forget-me-not flowers. Then he wisked us away to a lighthouse for more bridal party photos. Such amazing views of the bay!!!

For the romantic bride and groom photos the Door County Trolley driver brought us to an abandoned log cabin surrounded with crab apple trees that were in full bloom. The couple danced under the branches of one of the flowering trees... oh so romantic!

Upon arriving at their reception at The Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor we were welcomed to an intimate two-level reception. All of the tables were set in white linen on the lower floor and on the upper floor was cake and cocktails. The lighting in the room was magnificant!

After dinner the couple cut their cake and mingled with guests. Their first dance was loving and intimate.... with all of their friends and family witnessing the occasion.

Congratulations Kim and Dan!

Here are some of my favorites of the day...
