A Wedding Packed with Playful Personality

Photographer Alison Kundratic knows how to capture the moments of a special day. Here's what she had to say about the funny couple's big day: "Gini and Andrew's wedding day was a reflection of their personality. Gini said, 'We filled it with people and things we really loved so we knew we would have fun. It was a pleasant surprise when everyone else enjoyed it too!'

"Their venue, the Outer Edge Stage, is unlike any other in the Appleton area, and after the ceremony the area was transformed into a beautiful reception space. Between the ceremony and the reception, the couple and their wedding party made use of a few locations in Appleton, starting with Lawrence University, then under the Oneida Street bridge, and ending at Fratello's on the Fox River. Since Gini and Andrew are goofballs at heart, they brought along a bunch of 'nerdy' glasses for some fun photos with their wedding party. Instead of traditional bridesmaids dresses, all of the girls wore convertible dresses, each showcasing their own style; and to top it off, they all wore bright pink petticoats under the teal dress for an added pop of color! Gini made sure to include some extra special details in their wedding to incorporate who they are as a couple, starting with the heart-shaped confetti sprinkled on each table. During Gini's time away at college, her mother wrote her over 100 cards to show just how much she was loved; and the couple turned all of those cards into the heart shaped confetti and spread the love around the entire room. In lieu of favors, the couple decided to make a donation to the Wisconsin Chapter of the ALS association, in honor of Gini's grandmother who passed away from the disease. The couple are lovers of live music, so instead of a DJ, they hired Wisconsin cover band Star Six Nine to rock the night away. One of Gini's favorite restaurants, The Kangaroost, catered the affair, and instead of a wedding cake, guests were served brownies to satisfy their sweet cravings. One piece of advice that Gini has to future brides: 'Love your vendors; you spend a lot of your wedding day with them. I ADORED mine and they really made my day extra special.'" Now let's take a look at that special day...
