Laura and Michael knew they wanted a classic and traditional wedding. The couple wanted to make it a fun and easy event for guests traveling to Milwaukee for their “destination wedding.”
Although the couples resides in Chicago, they met and fell in love while attending Marquette University.
“I always knew I wanted to get married at the church on campus,” Laura said. “It had a special meaning for me because my nursing graduation as well as my mom’s graduation (30 years prior) was held there.”
Their favorite wedding details was their gorgeous wedding cake designed by the Laura’s sister-in-law, the Cake Lady. Everything about the wedding was perfect, both Laura and Michael agree.
“He is my best friend, my lover, and my partner in crime,” Laura said.
