Hanna and Eric are both graduates of Purdue University where they were lucky enough to meet each other in college. Eric pulled off a wonderful surprise engagement in Napa about a year ago, and Milwaukee was the perfect place to plan a wedding convenient to Hanna and Eric and both of their sets of families. Currently, they both do some pretty amazing work for Kohler. Eric is a wine steward (so you know there were some good beverages at this wedding), and Hanna is in management at Kohler so they have been around their fair share of amazing events, and they were able to create (with some help from some pretty awesome and talented friends) a wedding that felt like them. It was a chilly, rainy day for their wedding, but it really didn’t matter because we were in some really lovely locations, and we barely had to venture outside. Hanna and the girls got ready at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, with the guys a short distance away at the Westin. The ceremony and reception was at the Downtown Kitchen which is part of the US Bank Building. It was a wonderful and unexpected place to have a wedding. The view was phenomenal of downtown Milwaukee. We even got to check out the top floor of the US Bank Building with some great views of Milwaukee. In true Hanna and Eric style… the reception was most importantly fun! The food was fancy “street food” stations. You could have your pick of kabobs, burgers, pizza, tacos, or lo mein to name a few. And the late night snacks were just as yummy! The music was equally fun. It was my first time hearing Piano Fondue, and they were phenomenal. They took guest requests all night long and sang and played in such a great interactive way. AND yes, they even travel our way:)! It was a wonderful night! It was also a great finish to some awesome fall weddings for us, and now we are ready to bring on the snow for the last few weddings of the year. (As I write this, it is 57-degrees and rainy. A snowy Wisconsin December does not seem to be forthcoming!)
Here is preview of some wedding day awesomeness with Hanna and Eric!
