May 9th we started our 2015 wedding season with our first in Milwaukee WI at Christ Church in Mequon WI and reception at The Black Swan in Grafton. Their wedding was beautiful with a several little touches from family & friends.. Todd's sister made the cake, Shaina's aunt searched many thrift shops for all of the dinner plates, ceremony musician is the bride's cousin, and Shaina decorated the reception hall, plus made her own bouquets and the boutonnieres with flowers from Trader Joes. The father/daughter dance is one that I will never forget as both cried like babies, for those that know me.. I cry at every father/daughter dance and this time, everyone watching was also in tears. AND can we talk about the guests!! AMAZING dancers in that group!
Their Love Story
From the bride - "Todd and I met when I was complaining to my friend about just wanting to me a normal guy that was great with kids. She had this great idea to introduce me to her boyfriend's cousin. Todd had just moved to the Milwaukee area after having lived in Green Bay for work. So we started dating, but it took awhile for him to decide to move back to Green Bay, but after a job promotion he finally decided to make Green Bay his home . We when we first met we both knew that we were great together. After the kids met him I could NOT have gotten rid of him even if I wanted to. He is a perfect fit to our family.
The proposal was a little different as Todd proposed while we were turkey hunting. Not romantic to most, but it was great for us. He had wanted to take me hunting because it's something he loves doing. So he said something sweet about being able to do the things he loves and he wanted to be with me forever."
