 Tegan and Carl chose a vintage theme for their summer wedding, bringing the feel of the "Roaring 20's" to modern times.   Their ceremony took place outside at Milwaukee's Zilber Park with the reception at Best Place, part of the historic Pabst Brewery.  Fancy feathers, swanky cigar boxes, and vintage bottles and candle holders added the perfect touches to the simple elegance of white hydrangeas, orchids, and creamy rose blossoms.

Congratulations Tegan and Carl!  I hope your marriage brings many roaring good times!

North Hills Vintage

Amanda & Chad

Month: September
Ceremony & Reception: North Hills Country Club, Menomonee Falls, Wi
Flowers: Bank of Memories & Flowers

Amanda & Chad tied the knot at North Hills Country Club, just down the road from our shop in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.  A little lace, burlap, and some soft blossoms was all it took to transform a simple brick patio into a charming vintage setting just perfect for a wedding.


Mason jars and vintage bottles filled with hydrangeas, soft peach stock, and charming little spray roses were used to give this wedding its vintage feel.  They adorned the chairs down the isle and hung from the gazebo.


The same feel was used inside for the dinner tables, using a cluster of jars and bottles with burlap tags for the table numbers.  The floral clusters were set on vintage-looking silver serving trays, which were sprinkled with white rose petals.  All of these elements came together to create a simple, elegant feel.


Simple, soft blossoms were also used to adorn the cake, which was placed on a vintage silver cake stand, adding to the vintage decor.


Congratulations Amanda & Chad!  It was a pleasure to be your personal florist and decorator for your special day!

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!
