Beth + Larry met while working in Minneapolis. She's from Milwaukee, and he's from Chicago. Their wedding ceremony was held at Beth's family's church, Fox Point Lutheran - which happens to be in my backyard!
We planned for 13 months together; video chatting + texting often as they lived in MN. Originally, when we met, B + L described their wedding style as simple, easy-going + classic. They really just wanted their guests to enjoy themselves.
Once I learned B + L chose Uttke Photography, I knew it was safe to completely succumb to my instinctual emotions, and fall in love with them.
With that said, they did an incredible job sourcing vendors; who they ultimately fully trusted to produce their September 2019 wedding day:
This was a really really really great day. The energy was so bright + warm - B + L stayed happy, grateful and smiling from beginning to end.
That's a first look moment right there.
Here's Shannon Uttke 1 of 2 Uttke Photography + Design. She's wearing Beth's feathered shrug while they work through family formals; and I love this smile that her man snapped.
Here we all are the morning after - having a difficult time letting go.
This is the pair of white fur house slippers that Beth + Larry got for me while on their Grecian honeymoon. I've never felt so understood in my entire life.
