Friday Favorites: Summer Smiles

This summer is especially gorgeous! Not too hot and plenty of sun! Looking through our Instagram feed this week we found so many cute pictures of bridal parties, couples photos and little baby smiles! Here are some of those photos. Hopefully they will make you smile too :)

Just a happy bridal party having fun in the sun! Look at those smiles!

Congrats to this happy couple! So excited for you!

I love seeing couples look so lovingly into each other's lives on their wedding day. So sweet!

Friday Favorites: Light my fire!

If there is anything we love more than paper, it's lighting. Whether it's natural light, perfectly curated studio lighting, or cool concert lighting effects, we love it all! Check out our favorite posts from the week that we noticed had some super-stellar lighting!

Yoga in the morning at a venue like this with natural lighting streaming in the way it does in this picture?! I think yes!

This pretty much sums up my weekend 😊 #upnorth #wisconsin

Sunset pics on the lake always get me.

Let's be honest! Milwaukee summers include the best festivals and the best daylight!

Nothing beats a romantic ceremony exit. ❤️ How are you making your getaway?

What a beautiful time to get married! Every day is gorgeous and gives rise to the BEST wedding photos!

Love as a Cosmic Cliff Styled Shoot | Door County wedding invitations

Wowza! We're soooo excited about this! A few weeks ago we spent a couple days in Door County to work on a concept photoshoot with a bunch of our friendors (friends + vendors). Our friends at Thorne Ciné just finished the video portion of our shoot and we're so excited! Check it out below. There will also be some of the photos from the shoot that we are in love with underneath the video, so don't forget to look at those as well. You can see pictures of the custom invitations we designed. We hand pressed the rose gold leaf on each card - it's the little things that make everything stand out! The fern floral details, the vow backdrop and the vintage suede booties (to name a few 😉) are some of our favorite parts of the video! What are yours?! Would you get married here? What's your dream wedding location? Let us know!!!

Much love,
the #coquigirlgang
