John + Ellen | Married | A Classy Blush Springtime Wedding at Milford Hills Hunt Club | WI

Introducing: Mr. + Mrs. Thompson!!

I have had an extra Spring in my step this week as I reflect on just how amazing this particular wedding was.  Phenomenal couples like John + Ellen are the reason that I decided to document weddings.  Yes, their wedding day was gorgeous (as you'll soon see), but more importantly, these two were as deeply excited as ever to become husband and wife on that gorgeous May afternoon. 

It's definitely not hard to describe just how smoothly the entire day flowed from event to event. Since Ellen and John are two of the most easy-going, positive people around, you can be sure that every element of their wedding day reflected that! From their lovely guests to their incredibly sweet bridal party, I was overwhelmed by just how KIND everyone was! 

And their first look, AHHHH! One of my greatest joys in photographing weddings is investing in the emotional side of each wedding day with my bride + groom.  Their first look was so incredibly tender and sweet that I too, was joining them in the "tears of joy" department :) 

On a personal note, I don't think I could have dreamed up a more perfect place to photograph a wedding!  A stunning bride, a groom that I LITERALLY NEVER saw without a smile on his face and the most wonderful venue ever!! Since Milford Hills is a Hunting Club, I was giddy with excitement when I found out that the Club's resident dog would be hanging around all day (she definitely made an appearance as you'll soon see :) Since owning a German Shorthaired Pointer is at the top of my bucket list, I was in heaven!!!

John and Ellen, you two are the perfect compliments to one another and I am honored that I was able to document your wedding day! Good luck on your next adventures in Michigan and I cannot wait to deliver your album!! This is definitely a long post, there was just too much pretty not to share!!
