We love when clients here at Belle Fiori think of us beyond their wedding day. It is truly flattering to be thought of and appreciated beyond the realm of any one day or event. So, when we received an email earlier this week from one of our former brides, Jessica, we were filled with warm thoughts of her special day. Simple, elegant, and fun, Jessica and her groom Matt were the kind of couple we didn’t want to let go of, and one we’re so happy has kept in touch.
Jessica was excited to let us know that her wedding was chosen as a feature for ‘Wed In Milwaukee,’ a wedding blog powered by OnMilwaukee.com and a great resource for couples looking to plan local celebrations. Check out the featured blog below, and congratulations again to Jessica and Matt. We hope to hear from you again soon!
Jessica & Matthew’s Milwaukee Wedding
“At first glance, Jessica and Matthew’s cold-weather wedding was a traditional and romantic affair. But up close, guests realized the classic navy blue color scheme contained an entertaining twist.“Matt is a huge Yankees baseball fan, and it was fun to integrate the navy and white pinstripes subtly into our décor,” says Jessica, who’s accompanied him to many Yankees games during their travels.
The Milwaukee couple chose details that were very personal for the bride, too, most notably the reception locale. Members of her family belong to the University Club of Milwaukee, and they’ve shared many happy memories there. “The view of Lake Michigan is also truly amazing from the U-Club windows,” she says.
With the help of a handmade memento-bedecked card box, glowing candles, navy uplighting and lush floral arrangements, there was plenty to admire indoors, too. At dinner, family and friends also discovered that each table was named for a famous Yankee, and was decorated with a photo of Jessica and Matthew at a game. The revelry continued long into the night, thanks to a dance band and a baseball-themed late-night snack: Chicago-style hot dogs and Cracker Jack—“a huge hit with our guests!” says Jessica.
Looking back on the day, Matthew and Jessica say they have much to smile about: a touching ceremony and an evening of fun with everyone who holds a special place in their hearts. “We were both really excited the entire day and just had a good time!””
