Turner Hall Wedding Show: WEDMKE!
One Sunday we look forward to every year is the Turner Hall wedding show WEDMKE, put on by Turner Hall and Milwaukee Airwaves. It isn’t your typical wedding show, which should come as no surprise when it’s in one of Milwaukee’s most character-driven venues. Every artisan here brings their own voice to their craft, choosing to eschew the status quo for a more inspired vision. For those couples that think they would never get anything out of a wedding show but irritation and indigestion, this is the show for you.
We were so taken by the collection of talent in the room that we made sure to document as many of them as we could while also attending to our booth. Here are some of the highlights as well as links to the vendors involved.
Turner Hall‘s own booth almost blended into its surroundings it felt so at home.
Formerly one of our own, Shelby moved on from doing graphic design for us to start Shelby Made It and we couldn’t be happier for her. Here she is with one of our 2017 couples Devin and John!
These EZPZ marquee letters were impossible to miss. We just met them recently and really dig what they do!
Press Waffles wins our award for tastiest addition to the show. We really hope we see (and eat!) them at a bunch of weddings this year!

We hadn’t seen the Feisty Flowers crew since last year’s WEDMKE show, but we always enjoy our time with them and their amazing creations and hope to see them throughout the season.
