When Modern Meets Classic at St. James 1868 in Milwaukee

The gothic revival-style venue offers a historical backdrop for this contemporary design.
Angel Kidd

Our bride floats through the gothic revival-style venue — once a church — in a simple gown with a deep front slit and removable sleeves. Neutral makeup highlights dramatic lashes, and a loose, uncomplicated hairstyle accents her natural beauty. 

This whimsical cake from The Baked Lab brings the drama with offset layers, while rose-gold leaves add shimmer. 

The envelope’s lovely dusty rose reappears in table linens on the big day, with a carefree font and deckle-edge recycled paper for a soft, personalized touch.

When it’s time for a toast, take it to the next level — or several — with a delicate glassware tower. 

"Using the best blooms of the season‭, ‬we designed a‭ ‬garden-inspired look‭, ‬complete with blooms in the hedges in the courtyard‭. ‬This was really fun for our team‭.‬" — Sally Vander Wyst‭, ‬Milwaukee Flower Co‭.‬

At this intimate table for the couple’s nearest and dearest, sweet centerpieces rest on a soft mauve tablecloth, forming a tableau that pops against the black and white interior.

An arched ceiling and soaring windows open up the space, welcoming guests to an airy light-filled ceremony. 

Blue and white china adds a traditional touch, framed by dainty florals of peach ranunculus and magnolia blossoms, Antike garden roses, Quicksand roses and white daffodils.


Our bride marvels at the showstopping florals by Milwaukee Flower Co. The subtle palette of peach, pink and white complements her equally showstopping gown.
