Sue and David…what a lovely couple!
As chance would have it, they met over a holiday meal, and have been together for the last seven years. With no intention of tying the knot in their future, David decided that it just felt right, and the rest is history.
An Oshkosh native, Sue knew of the city’s rich history and wanted to share this spectacular place with their guests. Planning from their home in Florida, Sue reached out last year to get a little help from Witt & Co. to act as her feet on-the-ground here in Oshkosh.
I knew from our very first phone conversation that this wedding was going to be one to be remembered. With impeccable taste, style, and class, Sue had a vision, and we were going to make it happen together!

The guest list was intimate, and only included 30 of Sue and David’s closest family and friends. I had the pleasure of meeting each guest at their rehearsal dinner! What an amazing group! Each family was gifted a “Welcome to Oshkosh" bag, full of Caramel Crisp popcorn and cookies and Oak’s chocolates.
I worked with Jim Kolb (the mastermind behind House of Flowers) to design rehearsal centerpieces that Sue referred to as “Iconic Oshkosh.” Vintage phone books and bottles from Oshkosh were place on each dinner table for guests to admire.
Despite the impending thought of rain on their garden ceremony and reception at the Paine Art Center, we weren’t about to let a little rain spoil such a beautiful May 28th affair. Fortunately, the skies cleared and stayed sunny for the entire afternoon, (save for a brief shower during dinner while all were seated safely under the tent.)
Cate and Kelsey of Red Tide, serenaded as David and Sue walked hand-in-hand into their ceremony under the arbor. A collection of some of the most beautiful vocals I’ve ever heard. We were lucky enough to listen to the two of them throughout the entire event, from set-up to send-off!
After the ceremony, guests were invited to relax on the Great Lawn, with games, drinks, and appetizers.
Garden elegance met "kitschy" Wisconsin on the sage green satin table cloths that draped each dinner table. Wooden trays held bunches of fresh neutral florals, candles, and wooden cow table numbers, hand-picked by Sue and David. Each guest found their seat with a little help from their place cards held by miniature foam cheese heads.
In keeping with the Oshkosh theme, the menu provided by Zuppa’s Catering was a true Wisconsin spread of cheeses, fish, and craft beers mixed with flavorful Jewish fare. With barely enough room for dessert, a special angel food cake from Tamara's, was a pleasant end to the meal. All flawlessly displayed, it was a true feast for the eyes!
What a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We were thrilled to be a part of your very special day, Sue and David. It was an absolute honor and privilege to get to know you both!
Best wishes, and cheers to celebrating!
