It was awesome to reconnect with Brandon and Elizabeth to capture their beautiful wedding. Gustavo and I first met Brandon and Elizabeth while in college at UW-Whitewater. Gustavo knew Brandon through the music department, while Danielle worked with Elizabeth in the theater. Danielle also played with Brandon in marching band. The attention to detail and level of planning that went into this day was evident from the start! Elizabeth’s extraordinary skills as a stage manager kept this wedding moving with down to the minute precision, which was very impressive!
Brandon and Elizabeth’s classy wedding ceremony and reception took place at the unique and beautiful Central Coast in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. It was a very calm and relaxing Friday afternoon. As mentioned before, Elizabeth’s impeccable schedule gave us plenty of time to capture pictures of details, family, and the bridal party all before the ceremony began. This made for a very relaxing and laid back afternoon. Before the wedding ceremony Brandon and Elizabeth did a “first look.” It’s so sweet to see Brandon’s reaction to Elizabeth in her dress for the first time. It also gives the couple to some private time to relax and really take in the moment together!
We could not have asked for a better day for an outdoor wedding ceremony. The late afternoon sun provided absolutely perfect lighting, while the light breeze really made it comfortable. The ceremony was simple, classic, and beautiful. Brandon and Elizabeth’s love was evident through the intimate ceremony. When walking to their seats guests were treated with cute pictures of Brandon and Elizabeth growing up. These pictures were displayed on the ends of each row.
After the ceremony we had the opportunity to spend some time alone with the couple taking photos. Brandon and Elizabeth were up for anything and were wonderful and laid back to work with. Their love for each other and great personalities really show through in their photos.
Central Coast is such a unique venue for a wedding reception. The multiple tiers of the hall and combination of tables and booths gave an intimate feel to a large hall. The combination of lighting and the lovely details throughout the space helped set the classy mood of the night. The reception was a relaxed and fun time to celebrate their love for each other. It was so great to see so many people dancing and celebrating the love that Brandon and Elizabeth share. As the night drew closer to its conclusion, Elizabeth’s nephew sang a very lovely rendition of “All of Me.” It was such a heartfelt gift from him to the happy couple!
We had an amazing time capturing Brandon and Elizabeth’s wedding day and wish all the best as their start their journey together down in Texas! Don’t forget to send us some of the warm weather this winter!
