Waukesha Wedding- Sarah and Jake

Waukesha Wedding Photographer ~ Kara Reese Photography

I know most brides with outdoor ceremonies obsessively look at the weather forecast and hope for sunshine and blue skies. I’m hear to tell you, rain on your wedding day will not ruin it. Some of the greatest pictures I get are of wedding parties laughing and making the best of less than ideal weather. Wedding parties look amazing under some really cute umbrellas!

I was so honored to be a part of Sarah and Jake’s big day. They are a modern day romance, meeting on E-Harmony, but Sarah was the first and only person Jake “smiled” at, and the rest is history. He proposed at a New Year’s Eve Party they were hosting and she said yes! I did their engagement session as well, and I knew they had only fallen more in love during the planning of their wedding day.

The couple decided not to see one another until Sarah walked down the aisle. Broadlands Golf Club moved the wedding inside and the ceremony was beautiful. Sarah’s dress was from Amelishan as were her bridesmaids dresses, all the men’s attire and her mother’s dress! Sarah raved about working with them, and the ease of having everyone’s attire come from the same place.

The reception was gorgeous. I loved the cake with the puzzle pieces from Sweet Perfections. The couple’s first dance was to Jason Aldean’s version of “Heaven”. A favorite part of the reception was The Grand March, organized by Brew City DJs, the DJ for the wedding, in which Sarah and Jake surprised everyone by including a tribute to “Back to the Future” (totally amazing) with Jake dressed up as Marty McFly and Sarah holding his hoverboard.

Sarah and Jake, we wish you all the best, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!
