Margie & Adam’s Music-Infused Palooza Wedding

Margie & Adam’s day felt like the stuff of dreams. The intentional and personal touches they used to make their day reflect their love story were SO beautifully thought out and inspiring. Their vows took place on the rooftop of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, nestled under a flower-adorned arbor dripping in warm late-summer tones. Margie was absolutely breathtaking in her BHLDN gown with a touch of styling magic from Alan Koa Salon. After a bubbly champagne toast atop of the rooftop, the festivities traveled over to Madison’s High Noon Saloon for their rockin’ reception.

Music was at the top of the priority list for Margie & Adam. They wanted to throw a great celebration for their friends and family and hired a Chicago-based band, We Unity Candle, to bring the beats. Boy, did they DELIVER! Because music is also such an integral part of their love story, Margie & Adam infused musical details into the rest of their day in lots of creative ways. The guest book was a hand-crafted record, complete with a custom logo of their initials stacked to look like a home. Their custom logo was also featured on napkins, menus, and even as a huge projected backdrop behind the band! Additionally, hung around the concert venue were concert posters, all personalized with details on how A&M met, got engaged, fun facts about them, and SO much more! Heritage Tavern brought in the goods for dinner while Chocolaterian rounded out the night with some decadent desserts. This was quite the party, and being a part of this day was an absolute blast! Thank you so much Adam & Margie for having me.


Thanks to A&M’s wonderful team of vendors!
