Madison & Ryan
Villa Terrace Milwaukee Wedding
I am SO excited to share this beautiful Villa Terrace Milwaukee wedding day with you! Madison & Ryan created such a beautiful day for themselves and their guests. Everyone drove or flew into Milwaukee from out of town, and this was their destination Milwaukee wedding. We love that they chose the Villa Terrace as the backdrop for their perfect day. The day begain with getting ready coverage at the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel. Everyone was so relaxed and excited. Ryan and the guys headed to the Villa Terrace while the ladies finished getting ready, and the men were able to enjoy a walk to a nearby bar while waiting for the festivities to begin. Madison and her ladies finished their preparations and then headed to the Villa Terrace for first look photos.
Speaking of first look photos, you will not want to miss these ones! Ryan’s best man conspired with Madison to create a fake first look, and it was awesome! It was the first time we’ve been able to capture something like this; and let me tell you, these guys had us laughing all day long! We continued with pre-ceremony photos at this stunning venue, and then it was time for the ceremony! Madison’s cousin did the officiating, which was beautiful and personal. He even pulled out a decades-old note that Madison had written him after he spent the summer living at their house. It was so adorable (and also so amazing that he kept it for all these years)! We love little moments like that!
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a vibrant cocktail hour in the Villa Terrace courtyard, after which they were invited out to the Terrace for an absolutely stunning dinner. Gracious Events did an amazing job creating the space for an absolutely lovely dinner, and we were beside ourselves with joy capturing all of the gorgeous details! 🙂 Toasts were given under the twinkling lights as the light faded from the Lake Michigan skyline, and Madison and Ryan enjoyed their first dance under those same lights as well. And with that, the dance party began!
We can’t imagine a more amazing day for these two. The weather was picture perfect, and their guests enjoyed all the best that Milwaukee has to offer. We’re so thrilled to share our favorites from Madison & Ryan’s Villa Terrace Milwaukee wedding!
