A beautiful styled shoot with one very talented film photographer and some of the prettiest gowns from designer, Truville. Tucked into the Wisconsin countryside, Villa Bellezza Winery was the perfect setting for a shoot that was all about finding simplicity in loves, lost and found again.

Courtney + Jay

Courtney and Jay's wedding day was one that will forever be a favorite of mine. I waited for a Bride like Courtney for some time and when we met, we just clicked. She has incredible style, and it is so evident that she is completely in love with Jay.

From the Bridesmaid bouquets of olive branches (forever a favorite!) to Courtney's INCREDIBLE dress, the entire day was filled with little details, touching and belly-aching toasts, and the loveliest flowers of late summer. Tucked into a tiny town in South Dakota, it was the most beautiful day for the most beautiful couple.

 Yes. A Zombie Groom's cake. Jay was thrilled.
