We’re excited to feature our second Cafe Brauer wedding! Ironically the only venue we shot at twice in 2010 was Cafe Brauer, and the weddings were only a week apart. Despite a host of great similarities between these two events (awesome people, elegant decor, warm sunny days, lots of fun), they also had their own very distinct feel and personality. In a way it’s somewhat of a challenge for us as photographers to draw new inspiration out of a location we had just so recently visited, but luckily for us Amy and Matt are very inspiring people. Their infectious fun loving spirit made for a beautiful story of images throughout their amazing day. Thanks Amy and Matt for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day!
