Brittni + James The Seeboth Wedding // Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Brittni and James are two of the most kind, genuine people I had the pleasure of photographing. They were truly a joy, as was their special wedding day! The couple’s stunning wedding took place at The Seeboth, a dramatic, special event venue in the historic Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee. With the venue’s exposed Cream City brick and industrial beams, The Seeboth’s unique, urban vibe provided the perfect place for the gorgeous bride.
Brittni looked absolutely breathtaking in her wedding gown, which had intricate beading and a feminine flare. Her bridesmaids wore different hues of blue which coordinated perfectly with their pink, orange, and maroon bouquets.
James, happens to be my best friend’s brother, which made this event that much more special to photograph. In fact, I absolutely love capturing weddings of people I know because that connection makes the entire experience more emotional for me, which joyfully shines in each picture. I find great joy in capturing such a monumental day for two people I know and care deeply about.
On Brittni and James’ day, the sky was filled with rain clouds, but as soon as the ceremony ended, the rain clouds parted ways and the most beautiful sun shined for their family and bridal party portraits, which was such a profound, touching sign that James’ father was present in his own special way. James’ father, a man whom everyone has such fond memories of, unexpectedly received his angel wings a few months back. Understandably, this day was filled with emotional speeches and sweet mementos, including James wearing his father’s wedding ring.
I photographed some of the couple’s portraits at Lakeshore State Park, and per the bride’s request, she wanted some amazing photos under the storm clouds. Shockingly, and to our pleasant surprise, the weather that day provided her with both an amazing sunset and dramatic clouds over Lake Michigan. Such a well-deserved treat for the blushing bride!
Brittni and James, I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity to capture your beautiful celebration! Cheers to a lifetime of health, love, and happiness together.
