Looking back…
Taking a couple of weeks to hit our reset and refresh buttons after a tremendously busy but incredibly beautiful season, we are now able to relish in the looking back. Our upcoming posts will be unencumbered of the perfect caption, or the perfect order, as we simply revel in the beauty we were so grateful to be able to create and be a part of. We hope you enjoy the revelry as much as we do 🤍

Julie & Alex’s love for travel and adventure was the focal point of their wedding day.
🗻
Creating a mountain-esque tented venue centered around natural blue and green tones in her parent’s backyard made their celebration both unique and truly their own. Witnessing the power of their love (that truly spanned entire states at times!) was so powerful, and helping the heir dream day come to life was the ultimate privilege.

Congratulations, J&A!

St. James is an 150 year old church property repurposed into 2 event spaces in downtown Milwaukee, WI! To help bring this space to life, a group of vendors (safely) got together and planned a styled shoot.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seeing so many friends + colleagues hit with something completely out of their control this year has been tough, but all of these women-owned businesses are pivoting left and right for their dreams and I was so happy to be a part of it!
