Mr and Mrs. Mike Punzel: Married July 12, 2008! {Appleton Wedding Photography}

GREENVILLE, WIS: Pull up a chair friends because this is going to be a long blog! There is simply too much to say about Mike and Jessica and their awesome families. Karl and I had such a great time shooting this wedding, not only because the location was amazing, but because everyone was so very happy to be there.

We first met Jessica and Mike at a Starbucks downtown while Jessica’s son Christian was down the street taking guitar lessons. It was clear to us from the beginning that their wedding would be all about the blending of two families. In fact, by the end of the ceremony the entire wedding party was related! So cool!

Now onto a few of my favorite pictures from their wedding in Greenville…

Okay, so recently I watched the movie 27 Dresses, where the main character talks about watching the groom watch the bride walk down the aisle. Seriously! That’s my favorite part of the wedding, and I’m always excited to capture the look on his face as he sees her. This instance was even more special because Mike wasn’t just seeing his bride for the first time. His little girls Ellie and Kezzie were bridesmaids and he hadn’t seen them all day either! I got teary, but anyone who reads this blog probably already knew that.

This is just me being sneaky during the ceremony. Lucky for me Jessica and Mike were married under a giant tree for me to hide behind! In case you didn’t hear it enough during the Monday Moments blog post, Karl and I absolutely love Homestead Meadows. If you’re still searching for a location, give them a call!

Doesn’t Jessica have the most beautiful eyes? They definitely seem to run in the family. More on that later.

Married! And ready to walk all over the property for photos! Here are a few of my favorites from our alone time with Jessica and Mike.

I think the owners of Homestead Meadows got quite a kick out of us using this tractor as a prop for photos but I just couldn’t resist. Bright shiny things seem to capture my attention!

Since we know how important their children are to Jessica and Mike, we decided to take a couple of casual portraits of the kids between the dinner and the dance.

Christian told us at the rehearsal that we had to make sure to take lots of pictures of him because he was excited to wear his tux. I love this shot because you can totally tell he got his cool eyes from his mom!

Ellie and Kezzie were awesome models for me! I think they look like porcelain dolls all dressed up like that. I’m happy to report though that the dresses weren’t cramping their style at all. At various times during the day I saw them playing Miss Mary Mack and running all over the property!

Mike and Jessica chose to do their grand march and special dances immediately following dinner. This is definitely something to consider when you’re making your reception time line. By getting all of the special dances out of the way early, it allowed all the guests to get up and get on the dance floor right away. When the grand march happens later in the night it seems like some guests don’t want to get up and dance before the bride and groom have had their first dance.

Here’s my favorite image from the first dance:

The father daughter dance at this wedding was a double whammy for me! First we had Jessica and her dad Roger…

I was doing pretty well holding it together during their dance until I looked over and saw this…

And just when I thought the father daughter dance tears were over, Mike brought his own daughters out on the dance floor for a special dance to My Girl.

I will confess, even scrunching up my toes didn’t work on this one. Jessica told me the key to not crying is to focus on scrunching up your toes. I’ll have to keep that little trick in my back pocket for next time.

Jessica and Mike, Karl and I are so honored to have been a part of your special day. You guys are such great people to hang out with and it’s clear your whole family is pretty awesome too! We hope you had an amazing trip to Mexico!

And since I know you’re loyal blog readers and waiting for that one last picture…

Enjoy married life!
