After photographing Phil propose to Suzie this last winter, we couldn’t wait for their wedding, and it didn’t disappoint! We saw so many smiles and tears of joy leading up to the big event, and before we knew it, it was time! Golden Mast Inn on Okauchee Lake made the perfect backdrop for their outdoor ceremony. Their flower girl and ring bearer were absolutely adorable as they made their way down the aisle (with a little help). And then Suzie looked stunning as she made her way to Phil in her backless dress. We love Phil’s reaction to seeing her!

It was so touching seeing them exchange vows surrounded by their children and other loved ones. Everyone looked so happy for the two of them, and they were received with so many congratulatory hugs after they were officially announced as Newlyweds :)

Then we made our way around the lovely Inn for some portraits of the two of them. Suzie and Phil are so sweet and affectionate with each other; it was such a joy to capture their relationship. Afterward, they joined their guests for an evening of celebration! After listening to some really heartfelt, touching, funny and loving speeches, it’s clear that Suzie & Phil have such wonderful support from their family and friends. What a lucky pair!

Guests also enjoyed a delicious dinner and desserts, a beautiful sunset, cocktails on the patio overlooking the lake, and an energetic dance floor. So much fun was had by all!

Congratulations, Suzie & Phil! We loved being your photographers, and we’re honored that you chose us! We’re so happy for the two of you :)
