am_markhawkinsphoto 20Such an absolutely perfect wedding day with Alicia and Mike!  We just loved getting to spend time with the two of them and their fun wedding party and families.  The wedding ceremony was at Devotions Wedding Chapel which is a beautiful historic church in the country.   Then we enjoyed some time on the water with a gorgeous breezy 70 degrees.  The reception was at Lambeau Field in the Legends Ballroom.  It is always fun to enjoy a wedding day at Lambeau.  We enjoyed some time in the stadium for photos, and then just some great food and company.

Special shout out to Buds n’ Bloom for the florals and decor, Devotions wedding chapel for the ceremony and officiating, Elite Music Service for a fun party, Tie the Knot for dresses, and Manderfield’s for cake.

I love when the peonies are blooming!  Such a pretty setting for a wedding.

1Sam and Kimberly got married at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and the day could not have been more perfect.  Yes, it was hot…over 90…which is crazy considering Wisconsin experienced the largest blizzard of 100 years just a month before.  But our late spring worked to Kimberly and Sam’s advantage and all those gorgeous tulips were perfectly in bloom, and the gardens were spring perfection.  Kimberly is an English teacher so books and blooms adorned the tables at the reception and sweet readings were a big part of the ceremony.  Kim’s grandfather who was a florist before he retired, did all the flowers for the couple.  I loved all the personal touches throughout the day.  Kimberly and Sam both have the sweetest families, and it was truly a special day to be a part of.

Sam’s wonderful family. His grandma was such a sweet lady!

pa_markhawkinsphoto_ 1What a great engagement session with Phil and Abby!  We have known Abby and her family for many years and we even shot senior photos with Abby! Now she is a teacher in Howard-Suamico district and is getting married to her college sweetheart this summer.  Meeting Phil was such a pleasure.  These two are perfect for each other and bring each other so much joy.  We could not be happier for them, and we cannot wait to celebrate their wedding this August.

as_markhawkinsphoto_ 1What a great day for Anna and Steven’s engagement session.  We had to move the date and time a few times because of Wisconsin’s tempermental crazy weather tantrums that have been going on, but this day turned out to be a good one.  Anna and Steven were here visiting family from Minnesota so it was awesome to be able to carve out a little time with them.  We are excited for a 2019 amazing wedding day with these two!  There is sure to be a lot of smiles and laughs and good times!

MMwed_markhawkinsphoto 1Who knew that a routine eye checkup at the optometrist could change the course of your life forever?!  Turns out that Mike was the optometrist and the two of them started seeing each other beyond vision checks in the office.  You could not have asked for a more beautiful spring wedding day!  Yay for flowers and green and sunshine!  The ceremony was at the beautiful Holy Cross Church and the reception was at Badger State Brewing Company.  Badger State is a beautiful and fun venue for a wedding reception, but for these two it is even more!  Mike is a co-founder of Badger State along with two of his groomsmen.  Melissa and Mike had their hands in painting walls, nailing boards, and making that dream a reality.  So not only is it a great space, but it is filled with heart and soul from these two.  And of course two beer lovers would develop their own signature brew to send home with all their guests! What an absolutely awesome day with great people and personal touches to create wedding perfection.

Shout out to Tie the Knot Bridal for dresses, Tim Dorsey with Dorsey Entertainment for some super fun and unique musical entertainment (great vocals, dancing, and dj-ing), Ruby Design for decor, Cake Guru for cake and cupcakes, and of course Badger State Brewery!

The girls were getting ready at the Bride and Groom’s home.
