Kirsten & Andrew :: August 15, 2009

Kirsten and Andrew are two busy and successful people who love art, traveling, their families and each other. When I first met them Kirsten was living in Atlanta and Andrew is in medical school in Boston. They decided to have their wedding at one of their favorite places... Andrew's lakeside cottage on Kangaroo Lake in Door County.

Every last thing was perfect. Kirsten designed all of the stationary and paper goods... including custom letterpress invitations. The guests could snuggle up in a purple pashmina or change into pink flip flops for the outdoor reception. There was even a surprise fireworks display overlooking the water.

I have so many favorite images from this wedding! Thank you so much to both Kirsten and Andrew and both of your families for welcoming Ardent Photography into your special day. I am honored to have documented your wedding day.

Kirsten and Andrew planted a Ginkgo tree in honor of their new lives together. The Ginkgo is a the tree known as a symbol of longevity, peace, and hope. I was able to obtain a few leaves from their Ginkgo tree to photograph the other symbols of their union, the rings.

  1. Wow. I have to say, really, so many of the photos (the bride in the window, the B&G in the woods, and the rings on the leaf just to name a few, plus all of the dancing pics) actually made the word "wow" escape in a breath. Beautiful job!
