Amanda & Michael: Simple, Relaxed and Love-filled Wedding Day
Wedding: August 27, 2016
Ceremony & Reception: Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, Milwaukee
When Amanda Dudenhoefer first saw Michael Corpolongo, it was over a cubicle wall at work.

Guests were treated to barbecue, beer and music—things the couple loves. That’s exactly what Amanda and Michael wanted from their wedding: a beautiful, relaxed event filled with love.
