When Sara and Zach walk into a room, you can FEEL the fun spirit they have about them – and their wedding day here at The Eloise was no different! We knew by their whole energy and vibe from the moment they walked into our doors that it was going to be one heck of a day! All morning we could hear cheering, singing, laughter, and just pure happiness coming from each of the getting-ready suites as both parties prepared for the day. Picture Sara and her ladies singing “Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain as champagne bottles are popping. It was the best feeling!
These two planned an elegant black-tie affair with classy white floral accents beautifully designed by daffodil*parker. We were SWOONING. Guests were greeted with a glass of champagne as they walked into our venue and made their way to their seats for the ceremony. Sara and Zach wrote their own heartfelt vows to each other sprinkled with lightheartedness. Moments of happy tears and laughter came as they shared their story and promises for one another.
Cocktail hour was enjoyed in the shade of our back patio as hors d’oeuvres were passed around while guests mingled throughout the space. At the end of the night, Sara changed into a gorgeous little fringy white dress as she and Zach danced the night away together!
We were absolutely thrilled to see this couple’s special day featured with Wisconsin Bride as well as on the cover of WedPlan Madison’s 2023 publication! Soak in every stunning detail from their beautiful day with the best vendor team below.
