We love it when brides get in touch with us and share their great experiences in Door County, and Ashley did just that!
On a Bri-Day (Friday) on Facebook recently, she emailed us a few photographs of her engagement session with Adam LeSage Photography, and we were blown away. The beautiful lighting and scenic vistas are breathtaking.
Thank you for sharing Ashley! We can’t wait to see the wedding!!
From the Bride-To-Be … Door County has special meaning to my fiancé. He has been coming up here since he was a baby. Since we met 3 years ago, he introduced me to Door County! What’s there not to love about it? We knew from the moment we got engaged, there was no other option. Fall colors, brisk air, serene waters and so much more, we knew this is where we would share our special day!
Adam has been a blessing to us. He is amazing!!! With a wonderful personality and a young heart, we knew he would be the perfect fit for what we were looking for in a photographer and a friend!
Looking forward to September 29, 2012. To be surrounded by the beauty and the people we love.

Egg Harbor is a picturesque village along the bay of Green Bay in Door County. It has been voted tops in quite a few categories nationally, including one of the “Coolest Small Towns in America” by Budget Travel and “Best Small Town” in Wisconsin by Wisconsin Trails magazine. And it was the perfect spot for a fall engagement shoot for Brittany and Jeramie!
Having worked in Egg Harbor together during the summers of their college years, and the location has a very special place in their hearts. Alison Kundratic of Alison Kundratic Photography captured their romance beautifully while walking around town with them that they are very much in love!

Door County isn’t just a great place to get married — it’s a great place to pop the question! With scenic outlooks, water vistas, and beautiful sunsets along with delicious food and wine throughout the county, it’s an easy place to set the mood. Carmen and Tom enjoyed some of the fruits of the county during their cherry orchard engagement pictures taken by the talented Kim Thiel Photography.
From the Bride-To-Be … Door County is our romantic get away close to home; ideal for quick day trips or spontaneous weekend vacations. No matter the season, it is always a relaxing way for us to enjoy some quality time together.
Our favorite three “must do’s” every time we drive up are:
1) Stop at Stoffel’s Orchard in Carlsville on the corner of Co Rd I and Egg Harbor Rd (across the street from Door Peninsula Winery). They have the BEST yellow, sweet cherries and the sweetest staff! Reverse that if you want; sweetest cherries and best staff, both statements are true! Not sure if it’s the little red buckets, climbing ladders and giggling through tree branches, or holding hands while walking through the orchard, but cherry picking has definitely become a spring tradition for us.
2) Wine tasting at Stones Throw Winery in Egg Harbor. The summer I graduated I bought myself a membership so we could go for free wine tastings any time we want and get wine delivered to our front door bi-monthly! Best investment ever!
3) Driving all the way to the tip of the peninsula to get smoked trout from Charlie’s Smokehouse in Gill’s Rock. Trust me, it’s worth the drive. We also learned last year that they deliver, BONUS!
With all of these favorites in mind, we set forth making plans with our photographer (Kim Thiel of Kim Thiel Photography) for the perfect Door County engagement shoot. We met at Stoffel’s to take some pictures cherry picking. Unfortunately (for us), that year was an early season and the trees were picked dry.
‘No Problem,’ they said, ‘Drive over to our other orchard, the trees are full.’ With permission from the owners we drove over to their other orchard were we captured the beauty of hundreds of cherry trees dripping with plump, juicy fruit! Exactly the colors and style we were going for.
We then ventured over to Lakeside Park in Jacksonport to have a picnic with all our favorites; yellow cherries from Stoffel’s, smoked trout from Charlie’s and a bottle of Pinot Grigio from Stones Throw. As romantic and wonderful as the picnic was, Tom and I are also very playful; exactly why we picked the park. We played on the swings, the teeter-totter and Kim’s favorite (or maybe not), the marry-go-round! The lake was calling us too, so we headed down there next. It was a perfect beach day, warm, sunny, with a slight breeze. Sure Tom got a little wet, but in the end we both did!
Sitting on the bench swing looking out onto Lake Michigan, we came to the same conclusion…. 50 years from now, we would be having the exact same day, for the 50th time.
