Alissa and Aaron grew up in the same small, farming town. Although their paths crossed on several occasions, it wasn’t until after college that fate brought the two together. When Alissa moved to Milwaukee, she connected with Aaron, and they fell in love. On November 5, 2016, the hometown sweethearts tied the knot.

ESPECIALLY US

Aaron: Alissa gives the best hugs in the world. The first time she hugged me, it felt like we had known each other our whole lives. I always say that hug felt like “home.”

INTIMATE PROPOSAL

I walked into our living room and saw a bunch of roses and champagne set on ice. Aaron told me how much he loves me, and asked me to marry him. Later that night, we celebrated at Flannery’s — the location of our first date — at a surprise engagement party with both families.

KEY RESOURCES

Aaron’s mother, an interior decorator, created the centerpieces and several décor items. Also, Alissa’s friend and bridesmaid, Danielle, is a graphic artist and designed the programs.

WEDDING STYLE

Classic, elegant city wedding, accented by a champagne, gold and ivory color palette. A subtle sparkle shone through on many aspects of the wedding day. The bridesmaid dresses were an elegant champagne gold color that set the tone for the décor. Linens on the cake table, gift card table and guest book table were also champagne with sequin beading.

WORTH EVERY PENNY

The Photography & Videography: “We had such great vendors, and the pictures and video are something that we will cherish for years to come. Now we can look back on our wedding day and remember every detail.” The Venue: “The décor in the Hilton’s Empire room fit perfectly with our theme. It looked like a ballroom straight out of the White House!” The DJ: “Our DJ absolutely KILLED it. He kept the party going from the first dance until midnight. Sound by Design is the best!”
