WEDMKE is a unique bridal show featuring Milwaukee’s distinctive, local wedding vendors hand-picked by Turner Hall Ballroom Weddings & Milwaukee Airwaves in a mini festival atmosphere at historic Turner Hall Ballroom. I was incredibly honored to participate in this event for the second time with many other talented wedding professionals. Enjoy a few highlights below.

Beautiful florals were on display by many amazing Milwaukee florists (in order of appearance): Milwaukee Flower Co, Zap Bloom, Flowers for Dreams, Floral Alchemy, Wood Violet, and The Pink Peony. Gorgeous gowns were on display by White Dress Bridal Boutique (love the black one!) and Amelishan Bridal. Arch Apothecary and Lustrous Beauty Studio (my #1 make-up artists) had their beauty game on display.

Here’s a a few delicious treats that caught my eye (in order of appearance): Woops, Batches, Miss Molly’s Cafe & Pastry Shop, and Cranky Al’s.
Two amazing planners showcased their skills: événement and Events to a T.
My favorite rental company, Relics Vintage Rentals, made a impact with their beautiful booth design.A few other great vendors to note (in order of appearance): The View at Trio, The PhotoBooth, Coqui Paperie, All Occasions Catering/Bubbs BBQ, Black Shoe Hospitality, Hospitality Democracy, The Ivy House, Sound by Design, and The Cooperage.The Ivy House and Milwaukee Airwaves premiered their newest venue at the show: filament (previously The Seeboth, a gorgeous venue I love photographing). Lastly, a look at my booth overlooking the stage.

    I am so sad that I wasn’t there. I hope for the opportunity to provide FlissART caricatures at the next WEDMKE event. Looks like this year’s show was a huge success.
