Katie and Alex’s Southeastern Wisconsin nuptials were the perfect mix of elegant and fun. From the touching ceremony at St. John’s, to the ping pong and brilliantly served shaved ice, these two hosted the perfect event.

When our florists at Belle Fiori were selected to work with this fabulous couple, we were thrilled to create bridal florals to accent some of Milwaukee’s most beautiful venues. From the gorgeous brick at the Lake Country ceremony, to the ever-classic ballroom of the Wisconsin Club, Belle Fiori was given exceptional backdrops for inspiration.

Katie’s beautiful lace gown from Maggie Sottero was the perfect pair for her creamy white rose, lavender herb, white freesia and babies breath bridal bouquet. The pops of lavendar provided a wonderful complement to the bridesmaid’s dresses and decor. The bridesmaid’s themselves carried bouquets of purple stock, lavender roses, delphinium, lavender herb and babies breath. We loved the color combinations which photographed beautifully with both indoor and outdoor backdrops selected by Heather Cook Elliot Photography.

It’s hard to be a florist. Because the range of blooms and endless possibilities make it hard to pick a favorite style of floral design. On any given weekend, we’re hand selected to provide wedding florals and centerpieces for many Milwaukee couples. But I have to say, we had a wonderful time creating Katie and Alex’s classically beautiful centerpieces-they were some of my summer favorites. Housed in gorgeous glass vessels, their reception arrangements were the perfect focal point of each tablescape.

Check out some stunning shots from Katie and Alex’s special day, and congratulations again to the beautiful couple!
