Oh black tie weddings, how I love thee! This elegant, emerald wedding is absolutely stunning. I love how Meghan and Carl blended their backgrounds to create this beautiful, black tie Milwaukee wedding celebrating Meghan’s Milwaukee roots and Carl’s Filipino heritage. It was such a pleasure be their Milwaukee wedding planner.
The tone of the wedding day was set by the elegant invitation suite and paperie provided by Shine Wedding Invitations that highlighted their emerald color scheme. This stunning color scheme was then carried throughout the day, starting with the striking bridesmaid dresses and ending with the luscious florals provided by Impressions by Esther.
Old Saint Mary Parish Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony took place at the breathtaking Old Saint Mary Parish in downtown Milwaukee. Meghan carried a family handkerchief passed on to her by her mother. Within the traditional Catholic mass, they incorporated a Filipino wedding service. During this service, Meghan and Carl’s godparents presented them with coins that represented abundant spiritual strength and material possessions. They were then draped with a veil that represented the purity and joy of new beginnings. Lastly, they were draped with a cord to bind Meghan and Carl together for life. It was an amazing tradition filled with love and family.
Milwaukee County Historical Society Wedding Reception
The stunning Milwaukee County Historical Society served as the reception space. With its cream city brick, vaulted ceilings and dramatic chandeliers, it was the perfect backdrop for an elegant, black tie wedding. Guest tables were adorned with alternating high and low centerpieces filled with green and white florals accented with gold and crystal. The place settings were embellished with elegant menu cards and delicious chocolates. They opted for the Bluewater Kings Band to rock the reception until the wee hours of the morning. It was truly a fun night!
Every aspect of this elegant and timeless black tie wedding was captured perfectly in digital and film Elizabeth Haase Photography and Anchor Weddings.
