Tracy & Bob | A Pilot House Wedding

June 1, 2011

Tracy & Bob gave me an awesome opportunity to photograph them in their new home state of Nevada earlier this year and their wedding day felt like something of a gift, as well. Back in the state where they met – Wisconsin – Tracy & Bob’s wedding day was just as quintessentially Milwaukee as their engagement session was perfect Las Vegas. (If you haven’t read their how-we-met story detailed in the engagement post you simply have too – it’s one of my all time favorites.) Back in Milwaukee…a traditional catholic ceremony followed by an elegant reception at the Pilot House with its stunning 360 degree views of the city and lake set the tone for a day that was meaningful, delightful, and very personal for two people already building a life of their own. Tracy and Bob know, love and respect one another deeply so their moments alone together here and there throughout the day felt heavy with meaning but light with happiness and my camera picked up on all the deliciousness of two people being – really being – in love.

Veuve Cliquot magically followed these two around all day and I thought the constant presence of some bubbly was a perfect compliment to her luxurious dress and his classic tux. I love the above right photo of the sweet limo driver watching from the sidelines and holding such precious cargo.

The Pilot House at Discovery World is a classy place that doesn’t require much dressing up, but simple pink roses set off by black glass and crystals took the elegance to another level. While guests laughed and enjoyed themselves a vintage-inspired band played on. Between fox trots and bites of cake Tracy & Bob snuck quiet moments alone together throughout the evening and I adore the results.

Tracy & Bob  ~ I wish every day of your life could be even just 1/8th as magical as your wedding day. Thank you for the chance to spend it with you and to get to know you just a little. It was spectacular.

    Amazing work Heather! Their wedding looks magical though your lens. You captured very spontaneous moments that I think are the most precious and memorable ones! The first photo and the black & white close up photo of Tracy holding the champagne are my favorites.

    Beautiful wedding. I love the wedding party on the stairs. That’s my kinda random organization. 🙂
