Palms Bistro & Bar Wedding

Article By: Ellie Martin Cliffe,

Loved ones traveled from near and far to witness Tessa, who’s from Jackson, Wisconsin, marry Benjamin, a native of Antwerp, Belgium. The two met while attending Marquette University, and later decided to tie the knot nearby.

The pair used a vintage look to pull together the elements of their fall wedding day. “The one thing I really wanted was for the reception place to have Milwaukee cream-colored brick,” Tessa explains. And she got her wish with Palms Bistro & Bar in the Third Ward.

Tessa says the day flew by, but luckily these newlyweds have plenty of wonderful photos to remind them of it for years to come.
