Milwaukee Art Museum Wedding: Stephanie & Andy!
Stephanie and Andy had very high hopes and expectations for their Milwaukee Art Museum wedding and when the day surpassed all of them. With the help of Mathuea Recht of Luxe Events, the day was as fun as it was stunning.
We always ask where a couple’s jewelry for the big day came from. The answer is often a local jeweler, but for Stephanie and Andy, their answer was simply one word: family. Stephanie’s wedding band is from her great-great-grandparents from the 1800s. With all the prepping and primping that goes into a wedding day, this is what it boils down to for us and a lot of our couples – the joining of two families into one and passing traditions.
Impressions by Esther did an amazing job with the extreme amount of flowers featured at this wedding. One of the marks of a gifted florist is taking a couple’s vision and bringing it to life. As Stephanie’s mother remarked, “…once you connect with her, she’s there for you 100%. She is honestly a creative genius who takes your vision, then augments it. As one of our guests said, ‘I don’t think there was a white rose or orchid left in Milwaukee.'”
When the Kiddush was delivered by Stephanie’s 95-year-old grandpa, it was a moment for this family that won’t soon be forgotten. This was followed by a wonderful and thorough welcome from Stephanie’s dad and thoughtful and entertaining toasts from all of Stephanie and Andrew’s siblings.
What better way to start a reception than with a touching first dance followed by a raucous hora? Those back-to-back events really encompassed the emotional range of the day.
What an impressive dessert spread from Sweet Tooth! Makes us hungry just looking at it!
