Nikki & Simon's Milwaukee Wedding


Nikki & Simon’s Milwaukee wedding


From the locales and food to the music and décor, Nikki and Simon wanted their wedding to thoroughly reflect their everyday lives. “We didn’t want to make decisions because ‘that’s what people do for weddings,’” says Nikki. “We wanted it to be 100-percent our style and make people know they were at Nikki and Simon’s wedding.”

Chic custom invitations, procured by planner Janice Rosenthal, set the scene for the modern black-and-white wedding day, which began at Church of the Gesu on Marquette’s campus (Nikki, a member, studied there). After the ceremony, the newlyweds and guests made their way to the Milwaukee Art Museum. When they looked around, the Mt. Pleasant pair was thrilled with what they saw: Gorgeous décor and guests on the dance floor. “It was that moment we knew we had set the tone for not only a phenomenal wedding reception, but the fantastic party that we wanted to have with our family and friends.”

Nikki sings their planner’s praises for helping the newlyweds’ vision come to life. “I am very type A and tend to be a perfectionist from time to time—which is why working with Janice was so great, because she is, too!” explains the bride. “Simon is very relaxed and calm.”

“The day was exactly what we wanted it to be,” says Nikki, who loved being able to spend the whole day by Simon’s side. “To see it all come together on that one day was overwhelming, because it was everything that we had picked out together, and it was absolutely perfect!”

By the end of high school, Ellie Martin Cliffe was completely enamored of journalism, so she chose the most logical college major possible: anthropology. Disappointed by the minimal emphasis on writing and editing, she changed tracks and earned a comm degree from Carroll College. Ellie has since tackled many facets of the field including books, magazines and the Web at places like The Knot and Reader's Digest. She now works full time in book publishing, and is thrilled to get her wedding fix with When she isn’t wielding her (red) pen, Ellie can be found in the garden, at any concert that showcases a fiddle, playing pub trivia or in the kitchen. She and her husband live in Riverwest with their hedgehog, Guinness, and grapefruit tree, Sprout.
