Christopher & Andrew
Q & A with the Couple:
What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
The natural setting. The park sits on the other side of the Oak Leaf bike trail. To get into the park, you have to walk through a tunnel—it’s like to shed the city and step into a wonderful natural setting. Also, the ceremony space sits right on the bank of the Milwaukee River with woods on the other side. It was just the perfect setting that we wanted.
Which details from your wedding were your favorites?
- The “make your own s’mores” bar—this was put together by our caterer, Potawatomi Bingo Casino. It was a HUGE hit with our guests.
- Our wedding party transportation, Cream City Rickshaw. Such an awesome way to tour the city of Milwaukee! The drivers were very nice and friendly, so was the owner in planning the route and payments! The wedding party loved it because they were carted around and got a lot of compliments from passers-by when we were riding through the Third Ward. For Andrew and I, we loved the time to be able to spend together and just talk about what had happened, what was about to happen and how happy we were.
- Our DJ. A friend of ours was our DJ, and we told him “no traditional wedding music.” We wanted to have a nightclub feel with the music to keep the party going until the very end. Needless to say, the dance floor was packed the entire night, and the reception venue turned on the lights at the end of the night and said, “that’s it! You guys need to leave.”
Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.
Dancing down the center aisle to “Chasing the Sun” by The Wanted, holding hands, smiling ear to ear and knowing that we had just pledged ourselves to each other for the rest of our life. (And we are so thrilled that Brittany captured that moment in the photo!).
