Mary + Don // Milwaukee Community Sailing Center Wedding

I have a bucket list of places I want to photograph weddings at in Milwaukee, most happen to be along the lake. This was one of them. I am totally biased as my wedding was also here, so when Mary and Don asked me to photograph their wedding at the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center, I just had to do it! Plus, I've known Mary for years since I was an awkward teen attempting to be the best skier in the state (that never actually happened, the skiing part that is... the awkward part was 100% real). Don entered her life and I couldn't help but root for them. Don is simply the nicest man ever and I am so happy for the both of them!

The wedding was beautiful, small and intimate. And while it was very casual in some sense the ceremony was so intense in such a powerful way -- truly uniting not only the couple but two families. Though most went smooth, the bride suffered from a bee sting early in the day on a boat but she hardly let it bother her and kept a smile on all day. I wish these two the best in their future -- I'm sure they have plenty of travels, days sailing, and a lot of love and laughter ahead of them and I am excited to hear about all those adventures.

WEDDING, LOVEHaley Zanskas
