Vintage Charm: A Styled Shoot in Milwaukee, WI

Full of vintage charm and romance, this styled shoot is sure to inspire the couple looking to incorporate timeless elements into their wedding day. 

Planner Cheri Denise Events, along with a talented team of vendors shared the vision behind this stunning styled shoot that was captured by Jermaine Horton Photography:

“The venue was the overall inspiration for the shoot. St. James 1868 was originally a church and historical landmark in Milwaukee. The owner of the property, Ms. Kate Crowly, renovated the entire building into a venue space. The interiors and the aesthetic of the space is extraordinary. Every detail of the restoration process was well planned.  It was the perfect place to host a spectacular event.”
