[Ellie + Alex]
Ellie and Alex story began at the college dive bar Rascals (now closed) right here in Milwaukee. They still debate on who bought the first shot. The two chose Cuvée in Milwaukee's Historical Third Ward for its intimate setting and cream city brick.
Biggest challenge from planning your wedding?
It's stressful to plan the "perfect wedding" and a wedding is never perfect. Keeping that in mind was challenging.
What was your favorite song from the dancing portion?
Of course we loved our first dance, but the fact that the DJ from Sound By Design kept everyone dancing the whole night made us glad because everyone was enjoying themselves.
Favorite wedding day memory?
Right as we left our ceremony, we had a few minutes to ourselves. It was a moment of realization that we were finally married and could enjoy each other and the party ahead of us.
Do you have any wedding planning advice for other couples?
Remember to enjoy the process- it goes by so quickly! And make time for your relationship because in the end that's what matters.
