"Wisconsin" and "Beach" are not words we typically use together, but for Sam & Sierra's cocktail hour they fit perfectly!
Sierra's mom took care of the ceremony and dinner details, at Sepia Wedding Chapel in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Meanwhile Sam's mom, Kim, was tasked with coordinating the details for a cocktail reception. Guests needed a gathering location outside of the venue so that everything could be reset to invite guests back for dinner. They chose the scenic views of Lake Michigan, where a bright blue awning pavilion is situated along the sandy beaches of Neshotah Park.
Kim reached out to us to help her with the cocktail hour, and we were elated to assist! We looked to some of our favorite local professionals and set to work creating a formal event at the beach! From sourcing the hors d'oeuvres caterer and and bar service, to organizing the tables and linen rentals, designing the decor that mimicked the dinner reception, and bringing in the music system, we rallied the best-of-the-best for this couple.
We designed the decor around their primary wedding colors, blue and gold, and as a nod to their military backgrounds. We knew their wedding included blue hydrangeas, so we ordered the most beautiful white hydrangeas from a local florist to mirror their dinner reception flowers. We brought in color with blue and crinkle-satin linens with alternating mercury glass votive candles. (All while staying over $500 under their event budget!)
It was an incredibly windy day on the beach, but the weather held out for the afternoon. Guests mingled while the wedding party took their formal photos, and off they all went to enjoy the rest of the party at the Chapel.
Congratulations Sam and Sierra!
