Roman and Melanie met just outside their apartments, and we can thank their dogs for sealing the deal on this love story.
There are not words to explain how much I enjoyed meeting and planning with Melanie and Roman. We worked together for 10 months to plan their amazing and elegant wedding, and every meeting was more fun than the last! We had planning sessions in their Packer party room paired with the kinds of snacks we all prayed to find in our lunchboxes as kids. We strolled through the botanical gardens in Green Bay together after talking about their formal garden ceremony. They brought me a key chain back from a trip to Spain (which I use at every wedding!) I even got to meet their sweet furballs, Oliver, Liam, and of course Lambeau.
Their mutual love for the Packers led them to Green Bay and the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field. We organized glamorous crystal chandeliers, incredible floral centerpieces, luxurious linens, stately stationery, an incredible ice sculpture, and small touches of Packer pride into their dreamy reception.
Melanie and Roman will always be dear to my heart because they trusted in my dedication to their wedding, even though I would be over due with baby #1 by just a day! I so wanted to see their planning through and did NOT want to miss such a wedding! Thankfully my son arrived a week early, and I was able to celebrate with them on the big day and ensure that all our hard work payed off. I'm so grateful to them and to the amazing vendor team that made their wedding a huge success!
Kindness genuinely overflows from their hearts and we are better for having gotten to know them and experiencing just a little bit of their love! Congratulations!

In early June, my sisters threw a baby shower in my honor. For once I got to take a backseat and watch as someone else did the planning....
But of course, my sisters, knowing my love for planning EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL. allowed me to have quite a bit of input when it came to our baby shower for Baby Witts, as we affectionately named him or her.
My oldest sister offered to host the shower in her backyard among her lilac bushes (my favorite!) and apple trees. We used a few of the rentals that Witt & Co. offers as well as vases from Lauren at The Flower Mill, and tables and napkins from Oshkosh Event Rental.
No family celebration would be complete without some A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. food. I could eat breakfast any time of the day, especially while I was pregnant...so we had to have a brunch! We had the perfect selection -- Made-from-scratch chocolate fudge Belgian waffles, toppings galore, quiche, pastries and donuts, an extra special raspberry trifle, and of course mimosas and fruity MOM-osas.
As my husband pulled up, I was nearly in tears, to noone's surprise. (I blame the hormones!)
It was such a blessing to celebrate the anticipated arrival of our first baby with some of our closest friends and family! I am ever-grateful to my mom, sisters, sister-in-law, niece, and even my brother (who helped make some of the food) for truly putting on the best shower ever. It was so much better than I imagined.
I might focus on weddings when it comes to planning at Witt & Co., but it was so much fun designing a shower for a very special little man in my life. We're so happy to finally have James in our life!
Thanks to everyone involved for sharing in our very special day!

I have such fond memories of Kelsey and Adam; their big day is one not easily forgotten!
Labor Day Weekend has always been a popular wedding weekend for me and Kelsey and Adam kicked off September with one incredible celebration.
Not one area of the property was overlooked. They made use of every space by having their ceremony under the weeping birch trees with the dinner barn in the background, and finally danced the night away in the hall.
At our very first meetings we set out to detail the overall look and feel they wished to have for their wedding. One of Kelsey's dreams was to have a Pinterest-worthy barn draped with fabric. And so we did with the help of Wedding Perfect!
Kelsey worked with Lacey and Allure Premiere Event Florists for her amazing garlands, head table chandelier, and bouquets. The most elegant florals from Allure Premier Event Florists.
Everything was dreamy. Pure perfection.
Congratulations Kelsey and Adam!
