Milwaukee Yacht Club Wedding | Emily + Daniel

“Love each other like your life depends on it, because it does.” Leah’s stepdad offered this advice in his speech before dinner, saying it as a sort of benediction over the room full of family and closest friends. The flickering candlelight mimicked the twinkle in everyone’s eyes as he closed by recounting the line of […]

Meet Ingrid and Jaron!
