Destination Wedding Photographer| Clare + Mike | Gina Cristine

Mid July, we traveled to Lake Geneva Wisconsin for Clare + Mike’s  stunning wedding day.

Clare + Mike met in high school, as well as most of their bridal party and friends that were at their wedding. Family and friends did not hold back in the celebration of Clare + Mike. We are pretty sure the smile did not leave Clare  + Mike’s face all day.

Not only was the day perfection, but Clare herself was breathtaking. Makeup by Rachel Jordan, Jimmy Choo shoes, and her Nicole Miller gown from Jenny Yoo. I loved her choice of blush gowns for the girls, classic black suits for the boys, and accents of black and white stripes and gold.

Clare + Mike, you are both amazing and kind people. We are honored to have been able to document the story of your wedding day. We wish you nothing but a happily ever after!

Gina + Tom
