Harley Museum Wedding: Ashley & Justin!
The mutual appreciation between Ashley, Justin, and the Front Room family was palpable and immediate. They came to us to chat about documenting their Harley Museum wedding and it was immediately clear that they were a perfect fit, with each other and with Front Room. They had a winning combination of a large and fun bridal party, an intimate guest list and an early start to their reception schedule, yet still everyone was dancing until the end of their reception.
Gathering folks from all over the country for their wedding celebration, Ashley and Justin were determined to make the most of the rare opportunity to have all the folks they love most together in one place. It was a full day with everyone bent on enjoying every moment of it. The guys started with brunch at Kilowat while the ladies had a leisurely morning of relaxing and beautifying at the Brewhouse Suites.
Their ceremony at The Basilica of St. Josaphat was the stunning centerpiece of their wedding day. The beauty of this gem of a church was one aspect of the day Ashley and Justin were most looking forward to. Even though we didn’t have a lot of time post-ceremony to take advantage of the space, we made the most of it and even used the steps outside to maximize the possibilities.
After quick stops in front of a few Milwaukee landmarks including the Pabst sign and the Milwaukee Art Museum, we arrived at the Harley Museum for the duration of the evening. The Chrome tent was beautified by Petals with amazing centerpieces and bouquets. The classic 4-tiered cake from Simma’s was also divine.
The nice thing about Harley Museum weddings is there are so many different opportunities for photos on their grounds. From late afternoon light to the beautiful glow that comes about after sunset, the options are endless. Ashley and Justin were game for anything we suggested so we took full advantage of the grounds.
Because they had such an early cocktail hour and dinner, we had the rare chance to shoot the event dances with daylight still streaming in.
This “rat pack” cigar photo with all the childhood friends was one of the tops on Justin’s list.
