The newly renovated Riviera Ballroom in Lake Geneva was the site of Michael and Beth’s absolutely beautiful wedding celebration. The Riv has never looked any better! Their recent upgrades made a big difference, while still retaining the historic charm of this awesome venue. The weather forecast didn’t look the greatest when we headed out to Lake Geneva in the morning. However, the clouds parted - the sun came out - and everything worked out perfectly. The Grand March introductions were a big hit, as well as the bride and groom’s choreographed first dance! The folks at ShutterBooth were on hand for some fun photo ops, while Kim & Scott from Bar Stars took great care of our guests with cocktails and beverages. The photographers and videographer took full advantage of the picturesque surroundings, including a big send-off in front of the fountain. Thanks to Jean & Dennis, Dawn & Tony, and everyone who came out to celebrate! Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. C.!

SSE had a wonderful time celebrating with Jason & Kelsey! Circa on Seventh in Kenosha was the place to be on Friday – both the ceremony and reception turned out amazing. Officiant Steve Kochersperger led the service which united this happy couple as husband and wife, including a very touching unity ceremony with the children. During cocktails, the expert staff at Circa prepared the dining room for the delicious meal that followed. Kelsey, Steve and the entire crew did a fantastic job as usual! Family and friends filled the dance floor all the way to the last song – what a blast! Thanks to Phil, Terri, Carol, Ashley Hamm Photography, and everyone who came out to give their best wishes to Jason & Kelsey. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. P.!

It was Cody & Ashley’s big day, and SSE was there for all the fun and festivities! We arrived early to stage the room with uplighting, which perfectly accented the industrial feel of the East Ballroom at Fountain Banquet Hall. When it was time to kick things off with the grand march introductions, this wedding party did not disappoint! Peter A. Wagner Photography was on-the-spot with a fun photo opportunity, as our bride and groom visited each table in the room in less than 5 minutes! The speeches and toasts went off without a hitch, and set the tone for the celebration to come. We kept the dance floor full all night with a wide variety of requests, and our friends at A Photo Illusion provided their awesome photo booth to capture even more memories. We’d like to extend a special thanks to the Father of the Bride, Bill. All of the parents were an absolute treat, but we had the pleasure of working directly with Bill throughout the entire planning process. We appreciate everyone’s warmth and hospitality, and send our best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. W.!

SSE’s Silver Summer rolled on with Spencer and Taylor’s amazing wedding celebration! The Covenant at Murray Mansion never looked better for their Friday ceremony and reception. Officiant Jared Walker always does a fine job leading the service, and today was no exception! Guests were greeted with the beautiful sounds of a live string quartet – what a very special touch! Katie Schubert Photography was on-site to capture all of the special moments and memories, including some very heartfelt speeches and toasts. Keith and the entire staff did a fantastic job behind-the-scenes, making sure everyone was well taken care of and satisfied. Big thanks to all who came out to celebrate with this awesome couple. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. K.!

SSE returned to Circa on Seventh for Dexter & Shannon’s beautiful wedding celebration! It was day filled with love and laughter, and we were honored to be a part of it. We arrived in the morning to get things ready for the early afternoon ceremony. Dexter’s Aunt Debbie did a tremendous job leading the nuptials! Following the service, guests enjoyed fellowship time at the Apis Hotel nearby, while the ballroom at Circa was being prepared for dinner and dancing. It’s always a treat to work with our friends from Lichter Photography, as well the expert videographers from Hello Darling Films! Big thanks to the entire team for hustling and putting together another epic event. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. M.!
