Michael and Simone exchanged vows on a deck that overlooks where the Mississippi and Illinois rivers join together, making it a perfect place for their lives to be joined together in marriage. With Colleen Callahan officiating, Our Couple were married in a touching ceremony that was surrounded by love. Rings were exchanged, his was purchased at Qualo and hers was an heirloom ring that belonged to Michael’s grandmother. The Woelfer’s vows were sealed with a kiss and then it was time to celebrate!
Simone happily danced her way into the venue with her new husband by her side. The Bride and Groom chose a wine theme for the reception…but really it was a “drunk with love” theme! The napkins even had “Drunk with Love” printed on them! The cake topper was a glittery gold silhouette of a bride and groom with wine and the bride was falling into the groom’s arms. (CUTE!) Speaking of the cake, it was a tiered white cake with scroll décor and the base of it was covered with cake balls with black and white scrollwork. In keeping with the wine theme, the table centerpieces were made with stacked, rustic wood slices with a simple doily, a wine bottle, a wine glass filled with corks, and grape clusters atop them. We provided lavender purple uplighting and lighted custom wedding monogram, which made the venue look super classy!
Then, it was party time! Our DJ kept the dance floor packed with people moving and grooving to great music! A conga line wrapped around the venue and a groomsman even did a back flip over the limbo stick! Who does that?! Let’s not forget the awesome Fish Eye Photobooth pictures everyone took home as souveniers. As all parties do, the celebration of Our Wonderful Newlyweds had to come to an end. “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey was played as the last song. Michael and Simone certainly could make anyone believe in love! Congrats on your new life together!
