Jennifer and Eric’s July wedding took place at the historic Best Place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin– home to the former Pabst Brewing Company headquarters. On the afternoon of the wedding, I met up with the couple for a first look at the Brewhouse Inn and Suites, where the couple saw one another for the first time on their wedding day as they met in front of the striking series of polished copper kettles that line the boutique hotel’s second floor. The bridal party posed for a few photos on the unique, eclectic furniture and colorful antique stained glass windows that decorate the former factory. Outside, we incorporated the nature-meets-urban architectural backdrop of the sculptural rock wall at nearby Zilber Park and the native wildflowers growing abundantly from the concrete trench drains near the sidewalks. After a courtyard ceremony, the newlyweds greeted their friends and families under a statue of King Gambrinus, legendary cultural icon of beer. The party continued into the evening inside Best Place, where the couple and their guests ate, toasted and danced the evening away.
