Nick and Ashley's Wedding

Big

April 16, 2011 weather forecast: humongous snow flakes! Against the giant window back drop in the great hall at Polish Center, it was absolutely beautiful! The food provided by Jack Norman Caterers was delicious and our cake, by Anne Giordano, was SOSO yummy and delivered with excellence. Nikki Nischke provided amazingly beautiful photographs and our stay at the Hyatt Place was comfortable, accomodating, and relaxing. Overall, a wedding for the ages. We had SO MUCH FUN!

Tom Rasmussen, Facility Manager, was one of the most fun people to work with. He was there for us even for non-wedding issues, and threw one heck of a party!

Anne's design for us was INCREDIBLE! She hit the nail on the head with what we were looking for. And it was delicious, to boot!

Mark was so delightful to work with. He said I could call him at any time for anything, and he meant it! (He even picked up when he was in FL) We had tons of compliments on the food quality.

Nikki is THE BEST. She kept everyone on schedule, and took beautiful pictures. She kept the mood fun, and entertaining, and really pulled out the best in each individual.

I loved Miss Ruby! Most if not all of their bridesmaid dress samples were Size 12, so any average girl can walk in and try them on :) Amazing.

Sue was a pleasure to work with. She scheduled an appointment for ALL of our groomsmen from out-of-town, the day before the wedding. The store is not marked very well, but her service is second to none.

Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

For $1400 we could have had our rehearsal dinner IN Maggiano's, but for only $250, we were able to pick up "Party Pans" and host our own dinner. Someone should go back to "pricing" school.

...but the food is STILL delicious :)

Tim K. was so incredibly wonderful to work with. He made sure that everything went according to plan, and even then some. I am so glad we chose Hyatt Place - MKE Airport for our guests!

Wedding Day Beauty

It's about to be expected quality of a beauty school. It took us quite a while the day of the wedding, because each girl was so insistent on her best for each girl. But it was a lot of fun to have a day of pampering!

Jodell was willing to meet me on a day her shop was closed so I could drop off our groomsmen's robes to be embroidered. For $7.00/monogram, it can't be beat!

Nick's ring was absolutely beautiful! Michael does not create hollow rings and sells at wholesale prices with Free 3-day FEDEX. Most gorgeous ring EVER!

Tim Kirschenmann was my contact at Hyatt Place, and his service was second-to-none. He was so accomodating, and after a bad first experience, he made sure we were well taken care of.
