An Elegant Wedding at the Grain Exchange in Milwaukee

Together with their families, Dana and Jacob, hosted an idyllic Milwaukee weekend highlighting all of the history and beauty that Milwaukee has to offer. It began at the historic Pfister Hotel with an intimate rehearsal dinner, moved to the gorgeous University Club for getting ready and first look moments, and then finally culminated with a celebration at the stunning Grain Exchange.

The beautiful wedding design was floral-focused with stately and architectural foundations courtesy of the venue selection they chose. The couple put a strong emphasis on music and David Charles Productions helped to pack the dance floor and keep the party bumping all night long.
