This week marks SIX MONTHS since Carleigh and Caleb tied the knot. A specific story will forever be one of the first things I think about when I remember Carleigh and Caleb. One evening I went to meet with Carleigh, Caleb and their families to go over some of the wedding plans. Carleigh shared that Caleb was running late for the appointment because of traffic. She later found out that he had actually found a stray kitten on the side of the road and was rescuing it. He couldn’t take the kitten home, and the shelter he visited was closed, so he and Carleigh spent much of the evening on the phone trying to figure out where the kitten should go for the evening, and where it would go permanently after that. It wasn’t the most productive wedding planning evening, but that’s okay. I really got to see why they are such good partners for life… they both deeply cared about doing the right thing for this kitten, which had just kind of stumbled into their lives, they each cared greatly for one another, and they supported one another and problem solved better together. A perfect match.
While that story is top of mind for me (and the inspiration for the first photo I picked on the blog), Carleigh and Caleb’s wedding day was definitely one to remember as well. While it was a humid July day, the couple wasn’t bothered by the weather at all. They had a beautiful Jewish ceremony, an outdoor cocktail reception overlooking the city of Milwaukee and a stunning dinner reception followed by a dancing party to remember. These gorgeous photos were captured by the Milwaukee-based couple Leo and Jenny.
