I felt incredibly honored to photograph these two at Villa Terrace in Milwaukee on their wedding day! I feel like I walked around all day looking like the “heart-eye” emoji. Carla and Matthew incorporated so many beautiful details into their big day. We had gorgeous weather, an amazing venue, and a wonderful couple, but my absolute FAVORITE thing of the day was the way Matthew looked at Carla. He looks at her like nothing else matters. They are a perfect match!
Carla chose the perfect custom made dress for this venue! The intricate beadwork and beautiful neckline were jaw dropping – not to mention the breathtaking bride that was wearing the dress! One of my favorite moments of the day was when she put this dress on. Her mom was there to help and they shared the sweetest moments! Matthew and his groomsmen were lots of fun and they kept me laughing all day! They were all very handsome in their gray suits! Villa Terrace is such a beautiful space for any event, but especially a wedding day! The columns, brickwork and architectural detail feel as if you have set foot in Europe.
The ceremony was filled with personal touches! I love when family members do the officiating – it makes the ceremony extra special. Carla and Matthew exchanged beautiful vows that left everyone tearing up! Following the ceremony, we set off to explore the perfectly landscaped grounds and sneak in romantic portraits. The Villa has sweeping views of Lake Michigan, rows of towering trees and gorgeous secret gardens to add the perfect backdrop for their love. These two are such a great couple! I enjoyed hearing speeches of how wonderful they are both as individuals and together.
Carla and Matthew, thank you so very much for choosing me to be a part of your day. Every minute was filled with so much love! I know you will have the very best life together!! Enjoy my favorites from your day. XO
