Gallery Wedding in Door County Wisconsin
Megan and Alex are two amazing fun loving people who surrounded themselves with the people they love most on their wedding day in Door County. Their wedding party was filled with family and friends that were a freaking blast! By no means out of hands but up for a good time and good laugh! Their wedding was set at an amazing art gallery in Door County, where they said their I DO’s in a field surrounded by prairie grass.
Their programs were beer labels on beer that they brewed themselves!
Come on! This is my 3rd couple that have brewed their own beer and brought their personal touch like this to their wedding! FREAKING AWESOME! These labels were a huge hit, plus for those who don’t drink or under 21 they had rootbeer! We didn’t get a chance to try the beer, but was told that it was like Blue Moon – the beer too was a huge hit!
After the ceremony, we snuck away to get some photos and pop some champagne where I laid down in bird poop to get some epic shots of the couple and the wedding party! Anything for the shot! (the clothes I laid down in were washed after this for sure, no worries!)
At their reception, we got to hear their loved ones talk about amazing memories they’ve had with the couple, enjoyed their signature drink, the Old Fashioned, and danced the night away to a live band! It was a day to remember for sure!
Now let’s hear it from the couple themselves!
How did you two meet?
We met at the bar The Romain Coin, in Milwaukee. We also went back and had our first date and played Trivia (and lost), but it was really fun and a great way to get to know each other!
How did Alex Propose?
Alex got the news that the was getting deployed in the spring, so we decided to spend a few weeks doing all of his favorite things in Milwaukee. One night, he asked if we could go back to the Roman Coin and play trivia. Once we got there he mentioned that he wanted to grab dinner at a local place, along the way Alex stopped me at a heart drawn on the ground. It was the exact spot that we first saw each other outside of the bar! He got down on one knee and popped the question and I of course said yes!
Megan, what do you love most about Alex?
I like that he’s so kind and smart and overall just a super great person.
Alex, what do you love most about Megan?
I like how kind and caring she is to everyone. And I love her laugh and sense of humor.
What would a perfect Sunday be like together?
Making a big brunch at home, taking our dog Rufus for a walk at one of the local parks like Kettle Moraine, and then check out some local breweries together.
What memory stands out most from your wedding day!?
I think the best part was having all of our friends and family together in one place and being able to share the start of our next adventure together!
What was the best part of planning your wedding day?
Being able to brew our beer together and just working together on a project- it made us realize that we both have separate strengths and we make a pretty kick butt team combined!
In your own words describe your wedding day from the night before to waking up on the first day as MR & MRS!
I still can’t get over how amazing the whole weekend was! The night before we joined our friends and family for a good ole fashion Door County fish boil at The Log Den. After dinner and a speech from Alex’s dad, we parted ways until the next day. Alex spend the night at his cottage with his groomsmen. While I spent some time with my family and college friends. The next morning we both spent getting ready and looking our best for the big day. Alex and I did a first look at the bay and I total lost it, he looked so handsome in his military dress blues! We were able to go around and take some pictures at some of our favorite spots including Cave Point and Simon Creek Winery and then it was off to the ceremony.
We felt so blessed to be surrounded by all of our friends and family and have my Uncle Brian marry us. The dinner, speeches, and dancing the rest of the night flew by but it was so great to be surrounded by such love. I remember looking over at Alex during dinner and thinking how lucky we were! That was hands down the best day of my life and I’m looking forward to a lifetime more with Alex by my side.
What was the greatest challenge of planning your wedding day?
I think there’s just so much detail that you really don’t think about and seating charts are a hot mess. I feel like we prepared for almost everything but having a day of coordinator was super helpful. She totally headed off a lot of issues that we didn’t even know about.
What personal touches did you add to make your day your own?
I think having the beer we brewed with programs on it was the biggest personal touch, a lot of people got a kick out of that. We also had a display of our parents, grandparents, and some of our great-grandparents on their wedding day. It was so great to be able to share the love of our families that made us who we are today.
Did you write your own vows?
I take you as you are loving who you are now and who you are yet to become. I promise from this day forward. To be grateful for our love and our life. Be generous with my time, my energy and my affection. To be patient with you and with myself. Fill our life with adventure and our home with laughter. To encourage you to grow as an individual, and inspire you to do so. To love you completely. These things I pledge before you, our friends and our family
What are you looking forward to most in your future together?
All the adventures we will share together from traveling, to babies, to retirement and everything in between!
Advice for future couples planning their wedding day?
Everyone told us that it goes so fast, but it really does! Make sure you sit back and enjoy everything the day has to offer.
