Meredith & Reed- South Second Milwaukee, WI

Going into wedding season I am always so excited to spend time with so many couples. As they plan their wedding day, the photographer is one of the first vendors they book. I remember the day Meredith and Reed reached out to me. It was around Thanksgiving in 2018 and they were looking for a photographer for their May 2019 wedding. Luckily, I was still available for their spring date. They were quick to book and the next step was their engagement session. Meredith said Reed likes cars so they wanted to first do some photos in his garage with one of his cars. If you know me I am always down for whatever the couple wants to do. I was pretty excited to do something different. I showed up and they had matching JUMPSUITS! Like how awesome? I already knew I liked this couple.

So fast forward to their wedding. They were the most chill couple I have ever worked with. They are down to earth people who are so in love. So many moments they would look at each other like there is no one else is the room. We got to spend lots of time before the ceremony taking photos at multiple locations. We started at the Hilton Hotel getting ready and they did their first look in the courtyard. We then headed to the Botanical Gardens to celebrate with their bridal party and have fun with the group shots. Lastly, we went down to the Third Ward next to the Public Market and finished take photos on the Riverwalk. They were up for anything. Their ceremony and reception were held at South Second in Milwaukee, WI. It was a perfect venue choice. It was that ideal downtown urban venue with a lot character. As the day went on everything couldn’t have been more perfect. I loved hearing the stories of how they meet through a mutual friend/cousin or hearing how Reed was going to propose. We ended the evening with Meredith and Reed celebrating with an Old fashion.
