Michelle & Andy's Milwaukee Wedding


Michelle & Andy’s Milwaukee wedding

Little did their friends realize that, when they introduced Michelle and Andy at their church’s 20-somethings group, one day they’d walk down the aisle. The two Milwaukeeans both worked for GE, but hadn’t met yet. “We later reconnected, coincidentally enough, when I transferred roles and began working in the Magnetic Resonance department, where Andy worked,” Michelle explains. “I guess you could say we were attracted by the magnetic force!”

It’s no surprise that the bride and groom put their professional skills into planning their classic and elegant wedding: “Andy and I are both engineers, so we had many Excel spreadsheets and Gantt chart timelines to keep everything organized,” says Michelle, smiling. “Everything went very smoothly!”

Despite all their planning, they knew the day would be a whirlwind, so Andy and Michelle chose to do a First Look. “It was very neat to have our own special moment before the busy-ness of the rest of the day,” says the bride.

“My favorite detail was the overall color scheme,” says Michelle, who chose deep raspberry bridesmaid dresses and mixed bouquets of greens, pinks and violets. “All of the colors popped nicely against the green background in our outdoor naturescape photos!”

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 WedInMilwaukee.com. 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.
