Alex & Lexie | A Black Swan Milwaukee Wedding
I’m so stinking excited to be blogging these photos from Alex & Lexie’s gorgeous Black Swan MKE wedding on Labor Day weekend! From start to finish, every detail was planned to perfection and going through their photos made me want to relive it all again!!!
Our morning started off in the most stunning condo, set on top of the 12th floor with a panoramic view of Milwaukee. This spot was the perfect getting ready location for Lexie & her girls with SO much natural light pouring through the windows. There were so many sweet moments only one hour into the day (like the first-look with Lexie’s Dad that made my heart grow at least 3 sizes) and I knew that the rest of the day was sure to be unforgettable. After a beautiful ceremony at Plymouth Church, we headed to the Milwaukee Art Museum for formal portraits. Alex, who is a fireman, arranged to have a firetruck show up and we took photos in front of the museum with it!!! After a handful of portraits, the skies opened and rain poured from every direction but that didn’t stop Alex & Lexie from breaking out the umbrellas and strolling through the storm — which I think is very telling and a bit of a metaphor for the way that Alex & Lexie will live their married life together.
Alex & Lexie are adventurers — their first date involved a mud-run together & since then, they haven’t slowed down one bit. These two have a major passion for travel and have been all over the world together (Thailand & Croatia to name a few), building memories that will last a lifetime. What I thought was so meaningful was something that Alex’s best man brought up during his speech: so often, we judge how fabulous a person’s life looks or how great they might be as a couple by what we see online. These social media posts can often just be a “highlight reel” of our lives – only posting the very best – but Alex & Lexie? Their whole love story & life together is THE highlight reel. They are exactly as kind & considerate, perfectly matched, wildly adventurous, and blissfully happy as you see online or after meeting them for just 5 minutes. Alex & Lexie radiate a zest for life, which is truly contagious to be around.
A&L – Separately, you are two of the most incredible people I’ve ever met and what’s even more amazing is that you somehow found each other and created an even more perfect team. May you never stop adventuring this world together!!! xo
There is nothing as sweet as the way a Dad looks at his daughter <3
I LOVE the way Lexie looks at Alex with such happiness!
A firetruck happened to drive by right after the ceremony so naturally, Alex & Lexie ran into the street to grab a photo with it!!
Rain on a wedding day never looked so good!!
