Jennifer and Matthew 's Wedding

I know a lot of people say your wedding day won't be perfect, but I have to say that ours was as close to perfect as is possible! May in Milwaukee is the perfect time for a spring wedding - not too hot, not too cold. Our ceremony at Gesu Parish was everything I'd dreamed of. Our reception at the Marcus Center for Performing Arts (ovation catering) was nothing short of spectacular! Our friends and family are still talking about our wedding 8 months later! I thought my dream wedding would be in Chicago, but I found that Milwaukee was MUCH better at a price that won't start off your marriage in debt.

Ovation Catering
Milwaukee, WI

EXCELLENT! We could not have asked for a better reception venue! In fact, our family and friends are STILL talking about how great this location was. You get the elegance of the Marcus Performing Arts Center along with gorgeous views of the city. The staff was easy to work with and extremely professional. You will not find a better package deal for a reception in Milwaukee. We looked at seven other venues in downtown Milwaukee and this was the very last one we viewed. The food was incredible -- much better than your typical reception hall fare. You get so much for what you pay for! Our package included a late night pizza buffet!

Excellent. We ordered around 200 cupcakes with our wedding theme design on the tops. The cupcakes were delicious and the artwork was perfect. All for a lot less than a wedding cake!

Carl's Rainbow Photography
Milwaukee, WI

Carl has officially become a part of our family. After photographing my husband's cousin's and sister's weddings, we knew we needed to book him. His photos are perfection. He captures the moment like no other. In fact, many of our wedding photos caused me to cry because he caught that special moment time and time again. Carl is so easy to work with and listens to what you want from your photos. You don't have to worry about contracting with Carl and then having another photographer show up the day of your wedding. He's there and he'll stay there until you leave the reception. He did both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. Both were the best pictures I've ever taken in my entire life. Along with being really affordable, we also got our wedding invitations FOR FREE! And these weren't cheap invitations. He has books and books of invitations to choose from. You will not regret choosing Carl. He is now our family photographer and will be taking photos of our new baby soon!
