Sarah and Billy. http://sweetgrassstudios.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/9/sarah-and-billy Sarah shared this wonderful story about how her and Billy met. Now I am sharing it with you. We had the pleasure of being their wedding photographers last Saturday. It was such a joy to see so much love. They truly are a beautiful and loving couple. Congrats to you both and we wish you a life time of joy, love and happiness!

 

I moved to Riverwest 3 years ago into an upper flat with two of my friends. Billy was living downstairs. (this is the same way my parents met! – neighbors in the same building!) The next summer we started spending a lot of time together in our shared back yard, many Sunday Fundays, many Beermosas.

At the end of that first year, it was time to find my own place, and I made sure to look only within a few blocks of where we lived because I wanted to be as close to Billy as possible. Turns out, it didn’t matter where I moved because the day I moved my stuff into my new apartment (2 months after we were “official” boyfriend and girlfriend, he came right with me and never left!

We both knew pretty much immediately that the other was “The One”.

 

Ultimately, we dated for about a year and a half before he proposed. It was Christmas Eve and he surprised me with a horse and carriage ride in Lake Geneva. It turns out that while he was proposing, there was a couple who took pictures of the whole thing (totally unplanned by Billy), and they waited for our whole carriage ride to end, and when we returned, they shared the pictures with us. It was perfect!

 

My favorite memories of us are all of our travel adventures:

For his 40th birthday, I surprised him with a trip to Door County where we camped in a yurt (something he’d always wanted to do).

We went on a week long road trip to our favorite cities: Asheville, NC, Charlotte, NC, and Savannah, GA – we knew that if we could spend a whole week together non-stop, driving for up to 18 hours at a time in the car, that we could probably hang out together forever!

We both got our passports together and took our first international trip together to Mexico

Another trip was a last minute weekend in Florida in January. It was so cold! But we had a blast.

The Porter/Buth wedding http://sweetgrassstudios.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/7/the-porter/buth-wedding I had the pleasure of taking photos of Chris and Kristina's wedding this past Saturday. It was a small wedding at their parents house but it was amazingly beautiful. The day was hot and sunny but full of love. As I sat there waiting for the wedding to begin, I watched all of the guests mingling with each other. Everyone there was full of happiness and eager to see the beautiful couple get married. I don't know Chris and Kristina as well as I would like to, but you can see the love they have for each other by just looking at them.

 

They met at a bar called Tiki Shak on State street in Madison, WI. It was the last weekend Chris was going to be in Madison because he was moving to Oshkosh to go back to school. Talk about luck!!!!! They have been together ever since that fall of 2013.

 

Sweetgrass Studios would like to wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Here are a few images taken of their engagement session and on the wedding day.

 

True love

Sweet kiss

Kristina, Chris and Carter

The gorgeous Bride
I do!
