We had so much fun at Ryan & Rebecca’s wedding in Milwaukee last fall, we were instantly IN when Ryan’s sister, Erin, asked us to film her wedding. And when she told us it was going to be at Blue Harbor Resort on Lake Michigan, well, that only sealed the deal.
Blue Harbor is a special place for us. We used to go there for lunch or just walks along the beach when we lived in Milwaukee. It’s a beautiful place, but not overly-fancy so that it doesn’t feel relaxing. Being away from the lake is one of the more difficult parts about living in Texas, and we were looking forward to this wedding from the day Erin first called. And remembering all the Fekete’s from Ryan and Rebecca’s wedding – we knew we could count on some good reception footage. (So that’s right Nathan Fekete – don’t even try to run from us. We will be at your wedding someday, even if we have to crash it.)
We were taken aback at how filled with emotion Erin and John’s wedding was. Their vows were so sweet – with a few laughs mixed in – and there were so many cute comments John made to Erin throughout the day, we didn’t have room for them all in their highlight. The speeches at their reception were just as emotional.
How awesome is Mr. Fekete’s comment to John when he gives Erin away? I would imagine every father of the bride hopes he can say that – so special to know you’re giving your daughter away to a guy who just loves her to pieces. John is definitely a guy’s guy who likes to have fun (as anyone who attended the post-rehearsal dinner festivities can attest to), but he also treats Erin like an absolute princess. And seeing them both with their daughter Ava is just too precious.
We had fun working with Katie Garder of Love, Katie Photography. She took so many beautiful pictures on the lake and she is super sweet. (P.S. – If you’re Katie’s wedding videographer and you’re reading this . . in the words of Antoine Dodson: “You don’t have to come and confess what you did. We lookin’ fo you! We gonna find you!!”)
