Michael and Melissa’s Badger State Brewing Wedding!

MMwed_markhawkinsphoto 1Who knew that a routine eye checkup at the optometrist could change the course of your life forever?!  Turns out that Mike was the optometrist and the two of them started seeing each other beyond vision checks in the office.  You could not have asked for a more beautiful spring wedding day!  Yay for flowers and green and sunshine!  The ceremony was at the beautiful Holy Cross Church and the reception was at Badger State Brewing Company.  Badger State is a beautiful and fun venue for a wedding reception, but for these two it is even more!  Mike is a co-founder of Badger State along with two of his groomsmen.  Melissa and Mike had their hands in painting walls, nailing boards, and making that dream a reality.  So not only is it a great space, but it is filled with heart and soul from these two.  And of course two beer lovers would develop their own signature brew to send home with all their guests! What an absolutely awesome day with great people and personal touches to create wedding perfection.

Shout out to Tie the Knot Bridal for dresses, Tim Dorsey with Dorsey Entertainment for some super fun and unique musical entertainment (great vocals, dancing, and dj-ing), Ruby Design for decor, Cake Guru for cake and cupcakes, and of course Badger State Brewery!

The girls were getting ready at the Bride and Groom’s home.
