Alex and Elizabeth both grew up in Green Bay. College and work had taken them out of the area, but they wanted to return to their hometown for the wedding of their dreams. Elizabeth has a tremendous sense of style and design, for their wedding she envisions tones of metal, the softness of candlelight and industrial touches. Gather seemed like the perfect venue for this vision.
The day approached that they had planned for. The women stayed at Lodge Kohler and were pampered in style. The men were together at the groom’s parents home located in historic Astor Park. The couple decided to see each other before the late afternoon ceremony so that they could enjoy the evening that they knew would go by to fast. Where else but to do the first look other than St. James Park, right across the street from Alex’s parents home. Ali Leigh Photography captured stunning images of the couple amongst the scenery for the couple.
The bridal party joined in the pictures and all were so relaxed when arriving for the ceremony. The ceremony was held at Old St. Joseph’s Church on St. Norbert College’s Campus. The bride’s Hayley Paige wedding dress was absolutely stunning next to her groom’s classic black tuxedo.
After the ceremony had concluded guests were transported straight to the reception in Downtown Green Bay. The centerpieces were made by the bride’s family. The talented mother of the bride, Patty, took every detail in account when planning the look of the tables. Menus were custom made and on individual clipboards which personalized each place setting. A delectable menu was catered by Runaway Spoon and guests danced the night away under the romantic lights.
