Minocqua, Wisconsin

So Wisconsin…lets be honest, I wasn’t expecting it to be nearly as gorgeous as it truly was. My golly, especially their wedding venue Noor Wood Pines. As a lover of water, it was incredible to see a lake at every turn. There was something so peaceful about it, yet exciting. The day ebbed and flowed so naturally, just like the waves on those lakes. Sometimes at weddings I’ll just be overwhelmed (in a good way) with my surroundings and just how many photogenic spots I see. It reminds me Annie Lebovitz’s famous quote “One doesn’t stop seeing. One doesn’t stop framing. It doesn’t turn off and on. It’s on all the time.” I get that quote, and perfect weddings like Mel and Joe’s turn my brain power on over drive. I love it! One thing I wasn’t surprised about, was how wonderfully all the details were orchestrated and created by Mel, because she’s also a very talented wedding planner and owner of M. Social. Enough of my banter though, I hope you enjoy this love story of two wonderful humans, Mel and Joe.
