Allie and Brad’s wedding at Gesu Church and the Pritzlaff had all the makings for a classic urban Milwaukee affair. Allie and Brad have a love story that goes back to high school, but they really sealed their fate together while they both attended college at Marquette in downtown Milwaukee. With their solid romantic beginnings at the highly influential campus it is no surprise they planned their wedding to take place at the stunning Gesu Church. After their I do’s were sealed with a kiss we had a blast taking photos around campus and the magical St. Joan of Arc Chapel. Florist extroidinaire, Feisty Flowers, provided the soft pastel blooms that complimented the fresh spring blooms dotting the campus. From there we headed to their reception venue, the Pritzlaff, and were dazzled by the transformation of the space by Blue Fancy Events.
Melody Sopa Artistry provided the bride and bridal party with beautiful make-up that lasted all day and night.
Bret and Alyssa’s planned their wedding in Milwaukee all the way from their home in Colorado. Milwaukee is has some of the coolest wedding venues and this dazzling affair was split between two of them: Villa Terrace and Cuvee! Raised in the Wisconsin, Alyssa always dreamed of having her wedding at Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, and this beautiful bride was able to realize that dream with the help of her mother and Meredith of Blue Fancy Events. The day was planned so perfectly, that when we accidentally got locked in Villa Terrace we still had plenty of time for the bride and groom to enjoy their cocktail hour at Cuvee! I tell all of my couples that there is a little hiccup at every wedding – you just never know what it will be, but you want a great team surrounding you to help you push through it. It’s those little hiccups that are often the funniest stories you can laugh about for years to come, and I know that Bret and Alyssa still guffaw about being locked in the gorgeous gardens of Villa Terrace.
