Wisconsin Bride Fall/Winter 2023

Pop the bubbly — we have so much to celebrate! Newly engaged couples, congratulations!

We are so excited you are here. It warms my soul to see the creativity and authenticity in this issue. Vibrant colors are back, and that bright, bold wedding you have been dreaming of is about to happen.

Danielle Horvatin from Rosewood Events designed and executed a fabulous concept for a photo shoot at The Starling in Milwaukee. Among some really amazing wedding professionals was the team from Flowers for Dreams, who took the floral vibe to the next level. It’s the tropical, earthy, edgy combination we have all been waiting for. The best part? A surprise marriage proposal at the end of the day! Congratulations to Savion and Caleb, and many thanks for letting us be a part of that special moment, one we will never forget.

Another inspiring shoot took place at The Treasury in Delavan, the perfect backdrop for Allison Eberhardt from Et Voila’s vision of Pantone color of the year, Viva Magenta. Allison is truly inspirational and creative. Her vision was brought to life thanks to the help of so many fabulous wedding professionals. I mean, come on, Buds ‘n Bloom—those flowers are incredible!

In these pages you’ll also find the finalists and winners of Best of 2023. These are the wedding professionals chosen by you, our readers, as the best of the best Wisconsin has to offer. I want to thank everyone nominated for sharing your talents, products and awesome skills and congratulate the winners for their outstanding work.

Another fun fact about this issue: Two of our very own wedding pros tied the knot last fall! See pages 100 (Jessica) and 102 (Amber) on their newlywed stories. It is so much fun to see your special love stories in print. A big congrats to you both! Cheers to love, always!
