Milwaukee Bacchus Wedding – Laura & Phil
Laura and Phil’s wedding kicked off our 2016 season last month. We had been looking forward to their wedding for quite some time. We grabbed dinner and drinks with them a couple months before the wedding and loved getting to know them. They are two of the most genuine people we’ve come across and we left the restaurant that night saying to each other “I can’t believe they chose us to be alongside them on their wedding day. They are so cool!”
We started the day off getting ready at The Pfister in downtown Milwaukee. I gasped when I saw Laura’s Augusta Jones gown and bridesmaids dresses custom designed by MinkMaids. One of my favorite moments of the day is when Laura first put her veil on. You could tell by her expression(and her tears of joy) that it was all sinking in and she was officially a bride. Laura and Phil opted for a first look on their wedding day and we found a quiet little spot in the hotel for that and a few portraits. While the bridal party was finishing up and heading down to the lobby for pictures they got stuck in the elevator! Firefighters were called but they ended up getting out of the elevator after all. We grabbed a few pictures with the firefighters anyway. :)
After their beautiful ceremony at St. Sebastian’s church the bridal party made their way to Buckley’s, which was where Laura and Phil had their first date. We grabbed a few more portraits of the two of them in that area before heading to Bacchus for the reception. I had never worked at Bacchus before and only had dinner there once for our anniversary and loved it! So, we had high expectations for the food and Bacchus did not disappoint. It was some of the best we’d had at a wedding!
I worked alongside my husband Jonathan of Don’t Shout Films and his second video shooter, Colleen of Capture Life Moments. You can see Laura and Phil’s day through their eyes in this preview film below.
Thank you to Laura and Phil! We can’t wait to get drinks with you again! :)
