The “Fight For Carp” Benefit!

Family and friends gathered for a very special afternoon of memories and fun at the “Fight For Carp” benefit!  Adam Carpino was the victim of a tragic hit-and-run motorcycle accident.  A Car & Bike Wash, held at Paradise Lanes in Racine, raised funds to help offset the medical costs for his family.  The sun was shining bright, and by mid-afternoon the parking lot was full of people sharing their memories, enjoying the fellowship, and donating towards the cause!  In addition to the Car & Bike Wash, there was a “car smash”, a bouncy house for the kids, and plenty of great food on the grill to keep everyone fueled up.  SSE was honored to participate in such a worthwhile event, and do our part to help this family and our community.  “In Memory Of Carp!”

The Roots Of Love!

Roots Restaurant and Cellar in downtown Milwaukee provided an unforgettable atmosphere for Lori & Justin’s big day! The lights were shining bright, and “picture perfect” is the only way to describe it! The beautiful afternoon ceremony on the terrace was accented by a string quartet, and early clouds gave way to sunshine just as the service began. Roots’ welcoming bar and dining area accommodated our guests during the extended cocktail hour, and was followed by a gourmet dinner from Chef John Raymond. Touching speeches followed our meal, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room...(DJ included!) We broke loose and danced the night away, with plenty of room for our guests to rock the dance floor, or take a breather on the terrace overlooking the Brew City skyline. Our third wedding celebration of the weekend was one we’ll never forget! From beginning to end, it was the epitome of what SSE is all about…a fantastic time with fantastic people. Special thanks to Lori & Justin and their families for being so welcoming and gracious. Bright Lights…Big City!

Walkin' In High Cotton!

Kick the tires and light the fires! The Cotton Exchange in Waterford hosted Conley & Maria's country-inspired reception, and we tore it up! The planning for this celebration came together quickly, and everyone played an important part in making it an unforgettable night. After our fantastic meal, country artist Timmy Kash took the stage for the first hour and rocked the house! SSE took over the tunes at 8 o'clock, and we partied all the way 'til Sunday morning. It's hard to believe this was 'only' our 2nd wedding of the weekend...we still had our 3rd to go! Big Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Jensen!

Celebrazione Fantastica Italiana con SSE!

The Roma Lodge in Racine was ‘dressed to the nines’ as we partied with Melissa and Alessandro on their big day! Our groom hails from Italy, and many guests made the long trip across the pond for a unique cross-cultural celebration!  A custom coffee station followed a gourmet feast, and the dance floor was packed as we kicked off Labor Day weekend 2011.  Special thanks to Lori and the entire wedding party for making this a party to remember! Viva L'amor...Evviva Gli Sposi!
