Jenny + Mike’s Wedding Photos from Kohler, WI

Jenny is from Chicago.
Mike is from Green Bay.

Now if you are a typical Chicago native…you may wonder how such a pair could ever get together. =) Jenny is a Chicago Bears fan…Mike is a Green Bay Packers fan. For some that is like mixing oil and water. And yet these two were able to see through their football allegiances to developed a relationship here in Chicago.

We had a great time at their engagement session this past summer. If you haven’t seen their engagement photos, be sure to check them out at this blog post!

The American Club: Kohler, WI

Kohler, WI is conveniently located between Chicago and Green Bay. And so Jenny + Mike found a gorgeous venue with The American Club for their wedding ceremony and reception! Though a renowned Golf resort in its own right, The American Club, was a perfect choice for their wedding! We started in the bridal suite taking photos of Jenny’s details

After the ceremony we skipped out to take a few more photos of the new bride and groom!

Since we were in Kohler, WI, we decided to take a few photos in front of the Kohler factory!

The Kohler factory was a perfect backdrop!

Thanks Jenny + Mike for the privilege of photographing your wedding! As I said to you throughout the day- there were so many moments I will never forget! The weather was perfect and the vows…so memorable! Congratulations to you both!

with love,

your wedding photographer…
