Christmas Time Is Here!

SSE was excited to emcee the 2019 Holiday Gathering for the great folks at Johnson Outdoors!  Preservation Hall on Lake Avenue in Downtown Racine was the site of all the festive fun.  Employees came decked out in their “ugliest” holiday sweaters, and really got into the spirit of things! Catering by Chef John prepared a delicious feast for this hard working crew, and did an awesome job.  Our program continued with the official ugly sweater contest, a special welcome for new employees, and plenty of raffle prizes for all!  Big thanks to the We Care committee at Johnson Outdoors for organizing such a lovely event.  Christmas Time Is Here!

Leather & Lace!

What a wonderful winter wedding celebration!  The lights were twinkling bright at The Covenant at Murray Mansion for Matthew & Amber’s big day!  A string trio accompanied our bride and groom’s lovely ceremony, and CJ Raychel did an excellent job officiating the nuptials.  The cocktail hour in Murray Mansion was the perfect setting for beverages and fellowship.  Once guests made their way back into The Covenant, we kicked things off with a fun grand march and the official cutting of the wedding cake!  Speeches from the Father of the Bride, Best Man, and Maid & Matron of Honor were up next on our agenda, and led perfectly into the delicious plated dinner service.  Before long, we were ready to move a little furniture, and kick up our heels on the dance floor!  Big thanks to Hanni, Lexie, and the entire crew from Culinary Infusion for another outstanding event.  Big congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. R.!

Drinksgiving 2019!

For the second consecutive year, SSE kicked off Thanksgiving weekend with our friends at R’Noggin Brewing Co.!  The 2019 version of “Drinksgiving” brought out a huge crowd of family and friends who were ready to start the holidays in style.  Taking advantage of the great specials, guests filled up their growlers for the family celebrations to come.  We had a blast spinning tunes, greeting the crew, and sharing laughs!  Big thanks to the brewers and staff at R’Noggin, and everyone who came out to raise a glass of cheer!

You Make My Dreams Come True!

SSE returned to The Covenant at Murray Mansion to celebrate Andrew & Ellen’s big day!  We were excited to perform at this awesome venue two nights in a row, and we sure had a great time with this sweet couple.  Not only did a string quartet lend their musical talents to the lovely ceremony, they played in Murray Mansion for the cocktail hour as well!  When guests returned to The Covenant for dinner, we set the pace with an exciting grand march introduction, followed by some very moving speeches from the wedding party.  As always, the plated dinner service was superb – what an amazing feast!  A special video presentation gave everyone a chance to relax and reminisce, and was the perfect segue into the first dance of the evening.  Big thanks to the entire crew at The Covenant for a weekend filled with amazing moments and memories.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. B.!

Every Rose Has Its Thorne!

Love was in the air for Collin & Stephanie’s wonderful wedding celebration!  The Covenant at Murray Mansion in Racine hosted the festivities on a beautiful Friday afternoon.  Pastor Dan Remus from Journey Church lead the personal and heartfelt ceremony – it’s always a pleasure to hear his message!  Following the vows, guests made their way into historic Murray Mansion for cocktails, appetizers, and fellowship.  The grand march introductions kicked off the next portion of our evening, and set the tone for the fun to come!  Culinary Infusion’s delicious dinner buffet is always superb, and tonight was no exception!  Before long, it was time to kick up our heels on the dance floor, and we had an absolute blast celebrating with this great group of people.  Big thanks to Keith, Kathy, Hannah, Lexie, and the entire staff at The Covenant for another spectacular event.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Thorne!

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.!
