Marcus Center Wedding: Lisa & Stephen!

Lisa and Stephen took their time planning their Marcus Center wedding. When you are a detail-oriented couple that each have strong opinions, this is a great strategy to make sure you come up with just the kind of day you want without too much stress along the way. Lisa explains it like this: “Give yourself enough time, don’t rush it! This way we were able to get all of the vendors we wanted and didn’t have to settle due to availability.” Lisa and Stephen are a unique blend of serious and tons of fun. When it’s time to talk turkey, they have a laser-like focus; when it’s time to let loose and enjoy the moment, there is really no holding them back. It was clear that those same qualities run throughout the community of folks that make up their friends and family. This was a truly wonderful crowd and it was an honor to experience this day with them.

Emotions were already running high, but when Lisa gave her mother a card and gift, the dams burst. Her mother summed it all up by saying, “Oh Lisa, I’m the luckiest mother in the world.” These are the moments we all should hope to experience in our lives.

Stephen came this close to going into the priesthood. That is until he met Lisa. There was a clear reverence on display from Lisa and Stephen for the holiness of this space and this day. Being in one of the most beautiful churches in Milwaukee only added to that feeling.

Lisa had a secret message on the bottom of her shoes! We knew we had to make this shot happen to highlight it!

Stephen now has everything he could ever want. The girl of his dreams and his ’66 Thunderbird!

We have a rule around here: we don’t ask a wedding party to jump unless they ask if they can. Is it our imagination or did the flower girl’s petals somehow assume the shape of a heart mid-air?

Is the picture of adoration or what?

As Lisa and Stephen told us their story, it was revealed that their first date was at the skating rink right across the street from their Marcus Center wedding! Well, we had to head over there for some photos. While there, they also told us that was the first night they held hands and that they gazed at the beauty of the Marcus Center lights that night. It’s these personal anecdotes that tell us what pictures to take to evoke all the emotion we can for a couple.
