Black Swan MKE Fall Wedding
Olivia & Beau
You’re in for a beauty overload as we reminisce Olivia & Beau’s Black Swan MKE fall wedding from this October! We had such a fantastic day celebrating these two at some of our absolute favorite venues EVER! Every moment of this wedding day was lovingly planned. And – oh my goodness – don’t even get us started on how gorgeous the reception was! Olivia thanked her mother for all the endless work that she put into making every last detail come to life. Olivia would come up with the idea, and her mom would make it happen. There was no shortage of stunning detail from beginning to end of this Black Swan MKE wedding!
We began the day at the Homewood Suites in the Third Ward where we learned that it’s been open for a year already (and we just noticed it, even though we’re in the Third Ward all. the. time)! It didn’t disappoint. It was such a gorgeous space to photograph the meaningful, poignant moments of Olivia & Beau preparing for their wedding day. Olivia gifted Beau a watch + cuff links, which finished off his Groom’s look perfectly. And Olivia couldn’t help it; she was stunning all day long. She wore one incredible dress for the beginning of the day and another gorgeous dress for the reception and dancing, and each of them looked like it was made just for her!
From the Homewood Suites, we headed to the Noble Victory Memorial Chapel on the campus of St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy. The ceremony itself was beautiful. Olivia & Beau’s dogs Axel and Luxe were the Best Dogs, and their dog Ophelia was the Dog of Honor (cutest EVER!). They did an amazing job getting everyone’s attention for Olivia’s grand entrance. With a beautiful ceremony, Olivia & Beau were officially announced husband and wife!!! Afterward, we took full advantage of the gorgeous surroundings that are a part of the St. John’s campus. Again, this is one of our all-time favorite spaces. It is a stunning venue every season of the year, and the hardwood trees were turning color right on time (just for Olivia & Beau, of course)! We love these autumn images!!
When we made it back to Black Swan MKE in the heart of Milwaukee’s Third Ward, it was time for a few additional pictures of this super fun party and their bride and groom. Olivia & Beau fit together so comfortably, so perfectly. We love how they are always so joyful together; they truly took in all the moments of their day. With the start of the reception, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner and touching speeches. Olivia & Beau planned a sparkler entrance to their first dance. We are not kidding when we tell you that Olivia & Beau had every moment planned out perfectly, and their first dance was another example of that! It was choreographed & executed wonderfully!
We wish these two nothing but the best as they go forth officially as husband and wife. Their Black Swan MKE fall wedding was an excellent representation of their personalities and their love for each other. We loved ALL the moments of this sweet day, but here are a few favorites to share.
