Elizabeth & Paul

Sept. 5, 2009 at the South Shore Pavilion in Milwaukee

Paul Spurgis and Elizabeth Weckmueller wanted a ceremony and reception that reflected who they were—classy, fun, and down-to-earth. During the ceremony at the couple’s church in Milwaukee, Elizabeth shared a special moment with her father as they walked down the aisle to Edelweiss, a lullaby her parents sang to her as a child. Guests enjoyed perfect late-summer weather at the reception, held at South Shore Pavilion. Elizabeth and Paul kept the details simple—chic and wearable bridesmaid’s dresses, bouquets of mums, single white spider-mum centerpieces, and petite cakes that guests could serve themselves.
