Tessa & Benjamin's Milwaukee Wedding


Tessa & Benjamin’s Milwaukee wedding

Loved ones traveled from near and far to witness Tessa, who’s from Jackson, Wisconsin, marry Benjamin, a native of Antwerp, Belgium. The two met while attending Marquette University, and later decided to tie the knot nearby.

The pair used a vintage look to pull together the elements of their fall wedding day. “The one thing I really wanted was for the reception place to have Milwaukee cream-colored brick,” Tessa explains. And she got her wish with Palms Bistro & Bar in the Third Ward.

Tessa says the day flew by, but luckily these newlyweds have plenty of wonderful photos to remind them of it for years to come.

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.
