REAL WEDDINGS

The right prescription

Pharmacists Rebecca and Michael wanted to take care of their 170 guests the same way they take care of their patients — and that meant a venue that was convenient for the crowd of mostly out-of-towners. Enter the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel, with its walkable location and abundance of offerings on-site. The college sweethearts maximized use of the space, doing everything from their first look and cocktail hour to ceremony and reception to receiving line and post-wedding brunch at various venues around the hotel. “We will remember all of the locations we were able to use for the four days we spent there, as well as the amount of time we were able to enjoy with our family, friends, and guests at this hotel,” say the bride and groom.

Rebecca and Michael used The Outsider for their first look, along with their family photos (captured by Lauren Miller at Liller Photo). “It was special for us to be able to spend time with our families prior to the ceremony,” they say.

The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s mother, who’s an ordained reverend. They had a large wedding party, filled with siblings and friends. “The room was full of stunning flowers and lights that made the space seem more intimate,” say Rebecca and Michael.

The bride and groom snuck away from the cocktail hour to take a look at the ballroom transformed for the reception just before it began. They enjoyed a (rare) quiet minute soaking in the beauty of the room together.

“The view during the cocktail hour that was held on the top floor of the hotel embodied the heart of Milwaukee, and was breathtaking.” —Rebecca and Michael

The band went strong until midnight, with many guests saying they’d never seen such a busy dance floor.

Everyone loved the food during the cocktail hour and reception — and of course the late-night pizza after the dancing was done!
