plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I love a good snowy wedding. Especially when there are big fluffy Charlie Brown Christmas flakes floating in the air. Jane and Patrick were keeping their fingers crossed for a snowy wedding day, and their prayers were answered when Milwaukee not only had snow on the ground, but it also snowed during the day.

From the Photographer:

Jane was hoping for a wintery snow-filled day… if it didn’t happen we would do an “Ever After” session on another day with snow in the forecast. Luckily for Jane and Pat, the forecast for February 26 included the beautiful white confetti they dreamed about. The couple did a “first look” on the rooftop deck of the Hotel Metro. The moments Jane and Patrick shared in privacy were captured in a beautiful even light. What a way to start their wedding day! Jane is an invitation designer, she designed so many amazing things for their wedding… including custom hankies, a pin-up board guest book, a custom cupcake and Jimmie Square stand and a totally amazing folding wedding program. Coverage ended that evening in the midnight hour at The Landmark Lanes. It was so cute to see everyone in their wedding best hitting the lanes for the midnight bowl.

  1. How fun! And so neat that they wanted snow on their wedding day…and they got it 🙂

  2. I love the pictures in the snow especially with the bridesmaids and their colorful scarfs and coats! How fun! Living in South Texas makes me dream of weddings like this. Just perfect 🙂

  3. Haha, love her dress and the bowling afterward is great – so memorable!
