SSE’s first show in nearly four months was definitely worth the wait! The Landing 1841 in Burlington hosted Brianna & Riley’s intimate wedding celebration, and we had an amazing time with their entire crew! During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed passed appetizers and refreshing beverages in the lounge and on the patios. After introductions of the wedding party, we settled in for a delicious dinner from our friends at Culinary Infusion. The fathers of the bride & groom - as well as the Best Man & Maid of Honor - treated us all to some very touching speeches. Before long, it was time to fill up the dance floor and make some more memories! Although the pandemic changed some of their original plans, the strength and calmness displayed by Brianna & Riley was inspiring. Big thanks to the staff at The Landing 1841, as well as Keith, Kathy, Hanni, Hannah, Maddie, and everyone who came to celebrate with the happy couple. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. H.!

Spencer and Katie took the leap into marriage at their beautiful Leap Day wedding celebration! The Covenant at Murray Mansion hosted the lovely ceremony and reception. A very intimate gathering of family and friends witnessed the candlelit nuptials in the mansion. Following passed appetizers and cocktails, guests filed into The Covenant to continue the festivities! The official cutting of the wedding cake was sweet and touching, just like the speeches from the fathers of our bride and groom. Culinary Infusion provided a delicious dinner buffet, and gave us all the energy we needed to dance the night away! We received some excellent requests ahead of time, and had a blast kicking things up on the dance floor. Big thanks to Hannah, Keith, Lexie, Buttercup Bouquets, and Josh & Lindsay from Lichter Photography – it was an awesome group effort by all! Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. R!

SSE returned to The Stella Hotel & Ballroom for the wedding celebration of Joe & Khells! Family and friends of our beautiful bride traveled all the way from Malawi, Africa to take part in the festivities. Joe was really hoping for pleasant temperatures and some freshly fallen snow for the big day. The weather couldn’t have worked out more perfectly for everyone! Following the afternoon ceremony, guests made their way to the ballroom for cocktails and fellowship. A rousing grand march introduction kicked things off, with four separate songs used to welcome the wedding party! Plans came together for this celebration quickly, and it was exciting to watch the details fall into place throughout the evening. Big thanks to Catherine and her team at The Stella for all of their assistance, we couldn’t have done it without them. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. N.!

The Relay For Life of Racine kicked off their 2020 season with a special event in Downtown Racine! The Brickhouse on Main St. was rockin’ as the Event Leadership Team welcomed this year’s team captains and participants. Attendees enjoyed drinks and appetizers as they learned about what they can do in the fight against cancer. We heard inspiring words from cancer survivor Julie, and just how important it is to continue raising funds for research, treatment, and care. We gave away some great door prizes, had a big winner in the 50/50 raffle, and presented our Event Lead Amy with token of appreciation for everything she does for the Relay For Life of Racine. The “Purple Reign” has just begun!
