Higher Love!

SSE kicked off October with a bang at Upper East in Downtown Kenosha!  Nick & Katelyn gathered with over 200 of their friends and family members to celebrate their wedding in style.  Following the ceremony at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, guests arrived to enjoy fellowship, fun in the photo booth, custom cocktails, and delicious passed appetizers!  Our super-sized wedding party had a great time with grand march introductions and got everyone fired up for all of the excitement to come.  Steve, Nick, and the Culinary Infusion kitchen crew did an outstanding job preparing dinner, while Isabelle, O’Nya, Kayla, & Elisha made sure everyone was well taken care of out on the floor.  Once Nick & Katelyn shared their first dance together, we didn’t look back until the lights came up at the end of the night!  To say this group was pumped up and ready to celebrate would be an understatement!  Special thanks to Nathan & Stephanie Photography, Hanni, Kelsey, the entire staff at Upper East, and to Teena for all of her help throughout the planning process.  Big congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. C.!

Riding With The Kings!

TinCan Roadhouse in Union Grove was the location of Jake & Lilli’s exciting wedding celebration!  It’s been several years since we’ve been to this great venue, and we had an absolute blast with our bride & groom and their family and friends.  We arrived early to make sure everything was in place for cocktail hour and the grand march introductions.  As expected, the wedding party set the tone for the night, and made sure the dance floor was packed!  Big thanks to our photographers, the staff at the Roadhouse, and everyone who came out to celebrate with the new Mr. & Mrs. King!  Congrats from SSE!

Stuck With Me!

Benjamin & Kasey celebrated their big day at Circa on Seventh, and SSE was there for all of the fun!  Getting to know this couple during the planning process was such a delight, we were so excited when their big day finally arrived.  There were several unique touches throughout the entire day, including an emotional “first listen” with Ben playing the cello for his beautiful bride, immediately followed by the first look before the ceremony.  Our friend Rev. Jewel Olsen always does an amazing job leading the service, and today was no exception!  There were plenty of laughs and happy tears during the touching nuptials.  Afterwards, the team at Circa made sure everyone had their fill of custom cocktails and passed appetizers, while the room was being prepared for dinner service.  Grand March introductions were so much fun, the wedding party really brought the energy and kicked things off with a bang!  This crew had a blast on the dance floor - we were rockin’ from first dance to the big finale!  Huge hanks to Sophia, Kayla, Karrilynn, Joel, Nick, Jewel Olsen, Buttercup Bouquets, and “Best Woman” Megan for all of her help and assistance throughout the night.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Peterson!

Stay With You!

Wil-O-Way Grant Park in South Milwaukee was the site of Michelle and Geoff’s exciting wedding reception!  The happy couple tied the knot one week ago in Eagle River, and tonight family and friends gathered to help them celebrate in style.  The catering crew did a fantastic job with dinner service, including the preparation of an entire pig smoked on a rotating spit!  Guests took advantage of some photo ops with the classic cars parked out front, and enjoyed some tasty treats from Short N’ Sweet Desserts food truck!  We had a great time on the dance floor with guests of all ages – it was a blast from the first dance to the last!  Thanks to the wedding party for being so helpful with all of the preparations and making this celebration special for everyone.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. P.!

Better Together!

SSE was honored to celebrate with Justin & Ellie at Circa on Seventh in Kenosha!  We’ve known this wonderful couple for several years, and it was a special treat to be with them on their big day.  In addition to providing the music and entertainment, it was our pleasure to officiate their ceremony as well.  When Jim and Ellie descended the staircase to meet Cathy, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!  Following the service, guests enjoyed craft cocktails and passed appetizers while the staff at Circa on Seventh prepared the ballroom for dinner.  We’ve seen some very creative Grand March entrances over the years, but this one is going to be hard to beat!  Best Man Corey and Maid of Honor Autumn literally rode into the reception in style!  Jim’s speech was so personal and touching, the perfect way to kick off the next part of our evening.  After the delicious dinner, it was time for several special family dances before we tore the house down and filled the floor!  Huge thanks to Jim & Cathy, Chris & Theresa, Sophia, Hannah, Katie, Steve, Nick, Kayla, Evelyn, Lauri, Photographer Dan Valdez, and the entire wedding party for all of their assistance.  It was a night we’ll never forget – congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. M.!
