Caitlin & Vitaliy

Caitlin and Vitaliy’s romantic and elegant Milwaukee Wedding at The Ivy House was a celebration for the books! Their wedding day was a perfect blend of romantic elegance paired with modern flair. It was such a fun wedding day to be a part of, and we have been dying to get more of these stunning images of theirs out into the world!

Caitlin and Vitaliy met in true Milwaukee fashion at the Shamrock Shuffle. They had an instant connection and soon after enjoyed their first date. From that point on, it was history in the writing. With a shared sense of humor and lots of common interests, their instant connection grew and blossomed with each moment they spent together.

Fast forward a few years to Vitaliy’s proposal to Caitlin. She tells it best here:

I had NO idea! I always thought I would sense it, but I really didn’t see this one coming on May 23rd. We were “headed to a friend’s birthday brunch” at Harbor House, but we ended up “getting there early.” So we took a walk by the lake. I remember thinking “This would be a cute place to get engaged,” and the next thing I knew, Vitaliy was on one knee. We both don’t even remember what was said other than it was the best moment ever. Two of my best friends hopped out of the bushes with their cameras – they had captured the whole moment. We then went to The Outsider where all of our closest friends and family came to celebrate!

Caitlin and Vitaliy’s wedding day was picture-perfect, in every sense of the word and meaning. From the weather to the decor (check out that amazing hanging floral installation), it was a night to remember. And while I could go on and on about these two and this day, we all want to see more pictures. ???? So without further ado, here are a few of our favorites from Caitlin & Vitaliy’s Romantic and Elegant Milwaukee wedding at The Ivy House.
