Focusing on tailoring each and every client’s big day to their interests and personalities is the name in our planning and styling game and coming up with new and unique ideas is a challenge that we love taking head on.

Any idea that comes to mind is of importance and a lead on truly characterizing a perfect day in the eyes of our couples-truly there is nothing farfetched in our eyes!

One of my absolute favorite weddings that remains true to its couple’s roots comes from this past 2015 season. And in all seriousness, I can’t get enough of it.

I may have gone over their gallery 5 times today.

Lisa and Chris were quite a quirky and adventurous couple. And those traits shined through on their wedding day.

Take a peek below at some of my favorite elements in this Villa Terrace/Iron Horse Hotel celebration here in Milwaukee:

Guest Book:

Guest Globe

Guest Globe

In an ode to their worldly guest list (and their own travels, i.e. Lisa had been working in Honduras for part of the planning process) they incorporated a wonderful globe to double as a keepsake instead of being lost beneath stacks of books for the years ahead.

Signature Drinks:

Classic Chi-Chi

Classic Chi-Chi

While they kept these potent Chi-Chis, strong on the tequila and served in coconut shells, on the bridal party bus, it was a must have request from the bride that really got their celebration started following their Villa Terrace ceremony.

Tablescapes:

Gilded Dinosaurs

Gold + dinosaurs make a cute combo (who knew!?) and fit in perfectly with their whimsical centerpieces. Chris favored them as a kid and they couldn’t have made a cuter accompaniment.

Pops of Color:

Bold & Beautiful

Overall, having bright bursts of color was key for the bride. Between their centerpieces, escort cards and that eye catching cake, it was done flawlessly.

Just because an element may not make perfect sense to your guests, doesn’t mean it is something to stray from. Lisa and Chris’s wedding day is a perfect execution of their personalities and when pulling off a wonderful wedding, keep in mind that customization is key.
