A wedding in a coffee shop? Hell yeah, especially when it’s a wedding at Anodyne in Walker’s Point! For just under $22,000 these two coffee-lovers had some great vendors and 150 guests.

We love how they did a separate, very intimate ceremony (12 guests!) in Tosa’s Hoyt Park. Another cool thing – they had food stations customized to their unique backgrounds as well as tons of Wisconsin food to showcase our state to their guests.

We are excited about this wedding that took place at the Polish Center of Wisconsin. Not only did the bride and groom plan it from afar (Phoenix, AZ), but they saw the value in hiring a great photographer in Reminisce Studio by Miranda & Adam. This made for some spectacular images and great memories!

This wedding came in at just under $21,000. The couple knew they wanted beautiful outdoor pictures, so they made a stop at Boerner Botanical Gardens. Food was another big aspect and the Polish Center’s caterer didn’t disappoint.
