Tommy & Amanda, Milwaukee WI

Tommy and Amanda officially became the Stark Family this October at The Italian Community Center in Milwaukee, WI! Amanda and Tommy were both raised in Muskego, and attended the same High School- however it wasn't until Tommy's Junior year of College where they really got to know each other. I guess the timing was meant to be- look at them now!

Their ceremony took place at St. Paul's Lutheran Church followed by their reception at The Italian Community Center! Lake Park served as a beautiful backdrop for their wedding pictures. I mean come on... can the pictures below be any better?! Janelle Rose Photography captured the Starks day perfectly- and as a vendor was a blessing to work with! Between the ROCKING band, Velocity & DJ from Midwest Sound there was never a dull moment on the dance floor. I have to give a huge shout out to the Bartolotta's staff at the ICC, managing a group of roughly 360 for a plated meal is no small task! They were efficient, professional and an absolute delight to work with. Oh, and the floral.... Simply BREATHTAKING, Kelly from Jane Kelly Floral is a master in the floral industry and every guest took notice of the beautiful floral arrangements.

The newlyweds are blessed to have two very involved and loving mothers who helped during the entiere planning process. As a group their vision for a classy, timeless, large Italian wedding was CLEAR. I personally enjoyed learning several italian traditions while working along side these families. Cultural traditions are the best way to give a wedding day a special touch!

When I plan/coordinate/manage weddings, the families I work with become friends and I am so grateful I was able to work alongside the LaLicata's and Starks. The love that filled the room that evening is a feeling that I will carry for many years to come.

Thank you to the vendors that came together to make the Starks day nothing short of amazing:
