Here’s To Us!

The DeKoven Center in Racine was the location of Eric & Kailey’s wonderful wedding celebration!  Our bridal party started things off early in the day, taking pictures all over the campus of this historic facility.  Later in the afternoon, guests filed into St. John’s Chapel for the ceremony which was officiated by the Father of the Groom!  After the vows, we moved to The Great Hall for cocktails and fellowship.  The staff from Catering by Chef John did an excellent job with dinner service, and we had a blast hosting “Newlywed Shoe” game with our happy couple!  The dance floor was filled from the first song to the last – this great group of people had some fun!  Big thanks to Sheila, Jenna, Bill, and everyone who came out to give their best wishes to Eric & Kailey.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. P.!

SSE’s 2019 Fall Tour continued with Zach & Melissa’s beautiful wedding celebration!  The Covenant at Murray Mansion in Racine was the site of all the festivities.  The wedding party began their day in Murray Mansion, enjoying the atmosphere, ambiance - and a delicious brunch!  As the day continued, all of the planning and preparation came together for their afternoon ceremony.  A guitarist and pianist added the perfect musical accompaniment for the nuptials.  Following an exciting grand march and speeches from the Best Man and Maid of Honor, guests settled in for the excellent plated dinner service from Culinary Infusion.  We had a blast with this group – they kicked it up on the dance floor and had a great time!  Big thanks to Lexie, Keith, and the entire crew at The Covenant for another job well done.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. K.!

A Whole New World!

SSE was excited to return to The Club at Strawberry Creek for Cory & Cristy’s big day!  Our bride and groom met while pursing their shared love of travel and adventure.  On a special trip to Greece, Cory popped the question and began the journey to this epic celebration!  Cristy’s brother did an amazing job officiating the lovely ceremony in front of the clubhouse fireplace.  Following the vows, guests made their way into the ballroom for cocktails and fellowship.  We decked out the room with purple lighting, and really loved the atmosphere of the entire event.  Members of the wedding party treated us to two musical performances, and the Father of the Bride brought the house down with a surprise mash-up dance!  We’d like to thank the entire staff at Strawberry Creek for their hard work and professionalism – it’s always a treat to perform at this great venue.  Big congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. L.!

I Do!

SSE kicked off November 2019 with Christopher & Bethany’s big day!  The Covenant at Murray Mansion in Racine hosted our wonderful celebration, and what a day it was!  A brass quintet filled the air with beautiful music during the pre-ceremony gathering, and Rob Kroes contributed his talents on vocals and the piano.  Reverend Chris Davis led the touching ceremony and did a fantastic job.  Following the service, guests enjoyed cocktails and passed appetizers in Murray Mansion, while the family and wedding party took advantage of some excellent photo ops!  This event was full of personal touches everywhere you looked – our bride and groom really personalized the celebration space just for them.  After speeches, a delicious dinner, and custom video package - we were ready to light up the dance floor!  As always, a huge thanks goes out to the entire staff at The Covenant for their hard work and assistance in making all the details come together.  Big congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. D.!
