Scott & Amanda, Milwaukee WI

There is a whole lot of hope that goes into planning a wedding when a couple would like to have an outdoor ceremony in the Spring of Wisconsin. Amanda had a vision, the weather cooperated and BOY did the Ackers get married in STYLE! Scott and Amanda said their "I do's" outside on the beautiful patio at The Ivy House and it is safe to say there was not a dry eye in the crowd. A family-friend of the Bride officiated and payed beautiful tribute to Amanda's late father, Dan. In my heart I know exactly why we ended up missing a having such a beautiful day in April <3

Following the ceremony guests went inside to enjoy a buffet dinner by the Smoke Shack and had a blast with DJ Alex on the dance floor. Special touches were spread throughout the evening, a donut bar for desert, a candy bar as party favors, and giant Jenga on the patio to name a few. The Acker wedding is a wedding to remember.

Of course the vendor team was nothing short of amazing!

I would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at The Ivy House. They are professional, kind, and did anything needed to make this wedding perfect. Every corner and aspect of this venue was designed thoroughly! Lastly, their Event Manager, Abby, is second to none!

And finally... for ALL THE FEELS! My favorite photo of the evening!
