Alyssa and Tim met in high school when Tim asked Alyssa to the prom. Of course, she said yes. The two had so much fun together, that they started dating (Tim actually asked her out at prom) and they have been inseparable ever since. They have so many fond memories of their seven year relationship together. To them, it was the little things that mattered most. The long drives where they would talk for hours, the movie marathons and the Sunday night dinners; all hold a special place in their hearts. Little did they know that a date to prom would turn into the beginning of a lifetime together.

These two both knew early on in their relationship that they wanted to spend forever with one another. It wasn’t until last November though, that Tim proposed. Alyssa remembers it well, “Tim is really into hunting and I always try to go with him as much as I can. On November 1st, he asked if I wanted to spend that Sunday in the tree stand with him and I said yes. When we got to the stand he had me climb the ladder first and when I reached the top he had our first picture we ever took together (our prom picture.) Shocked, I looked down and he told me to come back down. Frozen on the ladder for what felt like forever, I finally climbed back down and he got on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him! He even set up his trail camera to capture the moment. Everything was perfect and I smile every time I think about that day.”

To celebrate their love and their engagement, we planned a wonderful Engagement Session in Door County. We met at sunrise (that means 5:00 am, people!!) at Whitefish Dunes to watch the sun rise and walk along the beach. I love that Alyssa and Tim were so willing to get up early and explore with me. I absolutely adore these two and I’m swooning over the images we made! The moon even made a guest appearance in some! I cannot wait for their wedding next May!

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”

Today, we are reminded of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our country, to defend our way of life. I have nothing but the utmost respect and eternal gratitude for all those who make the selfless choice to serve our country. I honor those incredibly brave men and women who gave their lives for my freedom and the freedom of my fellow Americans, not only today but everyday. This Memorial Day, I thank all those who have served, who continue to serve, and who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Fresh Brewed Friday – My weekly “coffee date” with you all

Happenings: Photographed Courtney and Aaron’s beautiful wedding at Olde 41 on Saturday! The day was pure perfection and I loved every part of it!

Photographed Alyssa and Tim’s sunrise Engagement Session on Sunday morning. We explored Whitefish Dunes and Cave Point up in beautiful Door County and we made some amazing photographs! I’ll get up early for shoots like this any time!!

Celebrated my dad’s birthday early by going to see his favorite band of all time perform at the Resch Center on Sunday. I surprised him with tickets to see the band Boston and we jammed out all night.

Laura and Andy’s wedding was recently featured on Artfully Wed! How cool is that?!

My garden is in full bloom right now and everyday I’m surprised by what else is popping up. Yesterday, I saw I have the most beautiful ferns growing alongside my garage! Lovely!

Joined about 50 other boss ladies and artists at The Draw on Wednesday for Ladies Night. We sipped wine and just talked for hours. I’m beyond inspired by all the wonderful things these women are creating!

New Favorite: My lilacs! The bushes in my yard are still blooming and this week I cut some and placed them around my home. Needless to say, my entire house smelled amazing all week.

My welcome boxes for my 2017 #stpbrides and #stpgrooms are all packed up and ready to go out! Ahhh! I’m so excited to surprise all my wonderful couples with the amazing goodies that took months to pick out and perfect.

Thankful: My backyard. It may feel funny to be thankful for that but I truly am. If I feel stressed or run down, I can just take a break and sit outside by my flowers and plants. Feeling the breeze and smelling the lilacs is so relaxing.
