Lauren + Karsten | Harley Wedding | The Rotunda, Waukesha WI

 

Gold accents, bowties and cigars, and a Harley Davidson. 

Lauren and Karsten had their wedding at The Rotunda in Waukesha this summer and it radiated clean, classic, and romantic. They kept things simple, nixed the bridal party, and surrounded themselves with their closest family and friends.  

I've gotten to know these two over the past couple years and it's been a pleasure. They definitely balance each other out. Although very different, they each bring a combination of soft+hard. Together they open up their arms + home and only want to take care of everyone. And they both have a love of bier that I resonate with on so many levels. 

L+K started dating nearly 9 years ago and finally tied the knot on a sunny day in July. Lauren included buttons from her mom's wedding dress and a handkerchief from when she was a baby in-between the layers of her own dress and Karsten rocked a bowtie and a fresh cut pompadour. While Lauren got ready Karsten enjoyed cigars and some bourbon with his dad +soon to be father in law.

After they exchanged personal vows (cue all the tears), we headed out into downtown Waukesha for pictures. After dinner Karsten brought out his Harley and needless to say we got some pretty epic+badass wedding pictures! 

All my love,
