Kraig & Amber | Surprise Proposal in Madison | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer Videographer

 
K&A-Surprise Proposal in Madison-50.jpg

Kraig’s sister, Kaila, originally contacted us about how her brother was going to propose to his girlfriend on graduation weekend in Madison, and that they needed a photographer. Devin & I were supposed to be out of town that weekend, but somehow our plans fell through and we were still able to make this adorable proposal work!

Kraig surprised Amber with their families being in town. Amber’s roommate was “driving Amber to her dinner reservation” but stopped at the house where it all started for these two. Kraig was there waiting for her. He helped Amber out of the car and took her to stand in front of the house where he asked her to marry him. She of course said yes and the family all started cheering. It didn’t stop there though.

Amber thought she was just going to a dinner reservation, but Kraig and his family set up an entire engagement party at Madison’s to surprise her even more! It was so much fun to witness all of the joy on everyones faces!

Enjoy, xoxo

WHO WE ARE:

KATIE + DEVIN (left)
DeGroot Film Co.
We are a couple who is married & in love, documenting other couples in love. We are local to Wisconsin but frequently traveling for destination weddings and elopements. Together we offer both photography & videography. We love exploring new places and taking in the beautiful world that we live in. We had a destination wedding ourselves in a place that speaks to our hearts. Being in a place surrounded by unbelievable landscapes is just so special to us!

KRISTA (right)
Weddings With a Twist
I am a full time wedding planner based in southeast Wisconsin. I went to Colorado to help coordinate Katie & Devin’s wedding last year & got the itch to travel more to help other couples in the same way. I love seeing new places & enjoy intimate weddings. I love helping our elopement couples coordinate their schedule, their travel arrangements, their marriage license & any other vendors they need such as an officiant and rentals.

Much like Krista, I traveled to Colorado as well to style Katie for her wedding. It was so amazing to get to travel with a bride that I couldn’t resist wanting to travel more. With big goals ahead for my hair and makeup career, this feels like an amazing place to start. I love working with brides on their own personal styling and bringing their vision to life for them.

WHY ELOPEMENTS ARE AWESOME:
- They are super simple and right to the point of being married.
- You can get married sooner than booking a venue based on their availability.
- They are generally much less money than a large local wedding.
- You can combine your elopement with your honeymoon.
- You can enjoy getting married without all the stress of a big wedding.
- You probably can’t beat the scenery if you choose one of our locations!

WHY OUR PACKAGE IS AWESOME:
- You don’t have to find all separate vendors, we did that for you!
- We have worked together multiple times.
- We take out as much of the stress as we possibly can for you.
- We have experience traveling already and can offer great assistance.
- Local weddings can easily cost over $25,000.
- The locations we choose are based on scenery to avoid venue costs.
- Most of our locations are free of charge or only have a small permit fee.
