Not only was Allison and Brian’s Pabst Best Place wedding reception was a blast, but their whole day left a lasting impression. Their chocolate lab Hazel is the apple of their eye. Their Old St. Mary’s ceremony was touching. The Lakefront Brewery tour was so much fun! This couple and the community of people that surround them are truly special. They welcomed all of us vendors in like family all day long. Because they assembled an all-star team of vendors, they could relax and enjoy their day! The vendors elicited much praise from the couple:
Events by Abby: Abby was our day of coordinator. She is normally based out of Chicago, but my sister also works with Abby. Abby made sure EVERYTHING was taken care of. Brian and I truly didn’t have to worry about a thing because we knew Abby was taking care of it!
Milwaukee Airwaves: We worked with Alex leading up to the wedding. The awesome music Gene, our DJ on the day of, played kept everyone on the dance floor. He went so far above and beyond his DJ duties! He brought us drinks, played our requests instantly, and just made sure Brian and I were having a great time.
Chef Jacks: During cocktail hour, our wait staff made sure Brian and I were able to enjoy our appetizers. The whole staff made sure we were happy and constantly checked in with us. I may have accidentally spilled an entire glass of water on Brian at dinner and within two seconds there were about six people there to help clean up. Not only were they great people, but the food was amazing!
Hannah Elisabeth Beauty: Hannah and Dani woke up bright and early for our 5:15 AM hair and makeup time. Their contagious energy kept the room hopping while making sure everyone looked beautiful!
Flowers for Dreams: Erika made our bouquets, a dog collar, corsages, and boutonnieres. They were all beautiful and she made sure everyone had everything on before she left.
The Pabst Best Place: Sarah and the Best Place team made sure everything was taken care of! Since there was a huge event happening all around the Best Place, they made sure we didn’t have any wedding crashers! Everything was perfect!
Aluke Paperie: Ashley helped customize all of our paper products- invitations, programs, table numbers, place cards, and cupcake signs. She worked with me to make sure everything was cohesive and exactly what I wanted.
In addition to these wonderful vendors, other kudos go out to:
Rings: Powers Jewelers
Bridal Salon: Bliss Bridal
Cake: Aggie’s Bakery
Who wants a flower girl when they can have a flower dog? Allison and Brian had to include Hazel in their day. She is their girl. We decided the Marsupial Bridge was the perfect place to include her.
The Lakefront Brewery tour is a really great time. It’s educational, fun and entertaining. Also, on a hot summer day, it feels great to be in the cool air. Allison and Brian have been on this tour before. They needed an activity to offer everyone between ceremony and reception and knew their friends and family would love it. They surprised their guests by joining them mid-way! Everyone rounded the corner and saw the honorees of the day! Then they learned about bung holes. That’s where beer enters a keg.
We love this moment with grandma and grandpa. It’s just the sweetest.
Lidia is experimenting with double exposures and it’s so compelling!
