Milford Hills Wedding

Jessica and Sean

Month: June
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Photographer: Defining 78 
Ceremony and Reception:  Milford Hills Hunt Club, Johnson Creek

It may take a little time to get to Milford Hills Hunt Club, but it is worth the drive.  This sanctuary with breathtaking views was the perfect spot for Jessica and Sean to say their "I Do's".

Jessica and Sean have such a sweet story of their relationship, these two were made for each other.  Being in the real estate business together, it is not surprising that they found their dream home before they were even married.  Sean literally proposed right on one knee in front of the "For Sale" sign. 

For their decorations, Jessica played off the natural elements of Milford Hills and brought birch branches into her ceremony arch and reception centerpieces. Her bridal bouquet was created with an abundance of textures and greens.  Pops of succulents complimented the blush and nude tones of the roses, and matched their dresses perfectly.

This fun and loving couple made so many memories this day, and we are so honored that we were a part of it.  Congratulations to Jessica and Sean!

The Club at Strawberry Creek

Lauren & Dan
Ceremony & Reception: The Club at Strawberry Creek, Kenosha, WI
Florist: Bank of Memories & Flowers, Menomonee Falls
Month: April 2016


Lauren and Dan couldn't have asked for a more beautiful sunny day for their wedding in April!  The wedding and reception were held at The Club at Strawberry Creek in Kenosha, Wisconsin.




Lauren's love off all things garden helped set the stage for a springy tulip-inspired wedding.  Her bouquet was very unique; designed to have an upside down cascading look.  Lauren carried a delightful mix of spring blooms including tulips, rice flower, freesia, and lush peach garden roses.  The rich greenery used gave it a fun textural look the bride had in mind.



I couldn't get over how cute and unique the bridesmaids dresses were.  The gals carried tulips bouquets in soft peach and pink that complimented their dresses perfectly, and the burlap handles gave them a gardeny feel.



The reception was adorned with vintage bottles filled with greenery and spring blossoms.  Moss was added to each table-scape to complete the garden look.  Even the fireplace mantle was dressed up with fresh florals designed in antique frames.



We used our long grey wooden trough for the head table decor.  It was filled with a mix of large succulent plants, mosses, rich lush greenery, and long stemmed votives with floating candles, and vases for the bouquets mixed in.  It was just magical!


Best wishes to this sweet pair!

Rustic Love

Megan & Scott


Ceremony: Holy Cross Church, Menomonee Falls, WI
Reception: Rustic Manor, Delafield
Florist: Bank of Memories & Flowers
Baker: Sweet Perfections
Month: September


After a lovely ceremony at our local Holy Cross Church, Megan & Scott headed to the barn for a rustic reception!


 Megan chose the elegance of a simple white bouquet comprised of hydrangeas, roses, freesia, and stock, wrapped in white satin ribbon and accented with pearls.


 Fall jewel tones were the perfect choice for the bridesmaids bouquets.  Each bouquet was designed in a monochromatic style with an assortment of flowers including roses, gerbera daisies, sunflowers, alstromeria, and stock.  This gave each bouquet a simple, but charming style.



 The reception flowers added to the rustic, yet charming feel with clusters of vintage bottles filled with bright blossoms and slender vases filled with birch branches and gerbera daisies.


 The rustic charm continues with a blossom-covered cake and the bride and groom's initials set up with bright flowers as an accent.  You can just feel the rustic love fill the crisp fall air on Megan and Scott's special day!  Congratulations from everyone here at Bank of Memories & Flowers!

A Rustic Pritzlaff Wedding

Katlyn + Kevin = LOVE

Ceremony:  The Big Red Church, Calvary Presbyterian 

Reception: Pritzlaff Building
Florist:  Bank of Memories & Flowers
Rentals: Canopies 
Month: October




Katlyn (Kate) and Kevin where married on a gorgeous autumn day in October when the leaves were just beginning to change.  Their "I Do's" took place at the historical Big Red Church in downtown Milwaukee on Wisconsin Avenue.


Kate was stunning in her vintage inspired wedding dress adorn with lace; her bridal veil was a sweet birdcage veil covering just a part of her face.  Her lips were a bright pop of red.  Her flowers were inspired by wild flowers.  The bouquet was filled with garden fresh plum astilbe,  delphinium, seeded eucalyptus, and fragrant ivory garden roses.   For her "something borrowed" and "something blue" she used a special heirloom lady face brooch.


For cocktail hour, guess arrived at the Pritzlaff Building near the 3rd Ward.  This amazing and historical space has high ceilings, cream city brick and exposed beams.  The couple carried the rustic and vintage theme right into their reception.


Mason jars filled with wild flowers sat on top of cut slabs of tree wood.  The other centerpieces gave some height, tall branches towering over the tables.  Each branch had hanging glass votives with flickering candles and the cylinder vase was filled with white garden hydrangeas.



Thank you Kate and Kevin for letting us be part of your special day!

An Elegant Rustic Wedding


Lanterns lit up the Rustic Manor on a beautiful spring evening as Kerstin and Mike celebrated their first moments as husband and wife. The couple could not have picked a more perfect venue for their rustic reception.


The bride was beautiful in an off-white fitted gown. Her organic textured bouquet was a stunning mix of peonies, roses, garden roses, spray roses, burgundy ranunculus, astilbe, and seeded euculyptus. The results was a gorgeous color scheme of fuchsia, greens, ivory, cream, white and medium pink. She chose a handle wrapped with love knots, a popular choice among our brides.


The bridesmaid bouquets were similar but smaller. They were each wrapped in aqua ribbon. The pop of color was beautiful in combination with the fuchsia flowers.


The groom's boutonniere was a burgundy ranunculus with an ivory spray rose. The groomsmen, fathers, grandfathers, and ushers had a simple burgundy ranunculus with a mix of greens. 



The mothers and grandmothers had exquisite pearl wristlet corsages with flowers to match the bride's bouquet.



The ceremony was held at St Anthony on the Lake in Pewaukee, WI. The pews were decorated with hanging vases full of  peonies, roses, garden roses, spray roses, burgundy ranunculus, astilbe, and seeded euculyptus.


The couple's reception was held at the Rustic Manor in Delafield, WI. The tables were lit by candle-light with lanterns surrounded with vintage bottles and mercury votives. Each bottle held an individual flower to match the theme flowers.


From the color scheme to the lovely decor, the wedding looked flawless!


The team at Bank of Memories & Flowers wishes Kerstin and Mike a lifetime of happiness together!
