Will & Erica | An Elegant Whistling Straights Wedding
I am SO happy to share this wedding today!!! It’s been a strange year. There hasn’t been a huge sense of normalcy for most people and especially not for anyone planning a wedding. After weeks of uncertainty, Will & Erica weighed all of their options and ultimately decided they didn’t want to wait a single day longer to start the rest of their lives together!
Our day began at the American Club in Kohler where surrounded by her best friends, Erica slipped into her wedding gown. July weddings are notoriously warm here in Wisconsin but we had the most beautiful sunshine and cool breeze that seemed to follow our every move. After a joy-filled ceremony, we headed to the rolling hills of Whistling Straights. The Irish barn and clear tent overlooking Lake Michigan were absolutely transformed into a magical reception space — it felt like we had been transported to the shores of Ireland! It was truly a storybook wedding day.
I always try to pick a favorite moment from wedding days but with this particular wedding, it was ALL of the in between moments that did it for me. There were countless GRAND moments too that I won’t soon forget (like Will’s reaction to Erica walking through those church doors) but sometimes it’s a million little moments that leave the biggest impact. Like the thankfulness Will & Erica shared that their wedding didn’t have to be postponed… the buzz of excitement that family members could gather in the same room to celebrate… the look of utter contentment when Will & Erica held each other tight as the sun set over the hills. All of the in-between moments that added up to an unforgettable day <3
Will & Erica, congratulations on this beautiful new chapter of wedded bliss! May all the little moments that made your wedding day so special be a resounding theme throughout your life! Xo
Such special moments <3
