A beautiful Milwaukee Cathedral Wedding | Eric & Julie

Written by Amber -

At the beginning of this month, we released some beautiful photos of Eric and Julie's wedding. I hope you had a chance to see their full gallery! We just HAD to share our favorite highlights of this special love story with you. Their winter wedding day was filled with deep spirituality, rich symbolism, sweet moments and even DQ ice cream cake. Eric and Julie's friends and family gathered at The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Milwaukee to witness their marriage. After their chilly horse-drawn carriage ride, everyone met the Bride and Groom at historic Humphrey Scottish Rite Masonic Center for a very elegant reception in the ornate banquet hall. I loved seeing the interaction of the families—everyone there knew that Eric and Julie were perfect for each other! 

I hope you enjoy these highlights from their big day...

Julie and her Bridesmaids got together in the morning. Props to the ladies at Vivid Hair Salon in Bay View who did a gorgeous job with their hair and makeup.

So many smiles in the salon! Julie's sisters and friends had fun together as they got ready for the wedding. Excitement & anticipation were certainly in the air!

Julie is one of the most humble, soft-spoken people I have ever met. I loved seeing her get all dolled up in glimmering details that decorated her to be such a beautiful Bride.

Two of the Bride's sisters, Kathleen and Rachel, prepped Julie for her walk down the aisle.

I absolutely LOVED this moment after Julie was ready when her mother, aunts and cousins saw her for the first time and looked on in awe. You could hear a deep gasp of the group and then just silence & smiles..... Maybe a few tears, even.

On the other side of the church, Eric was just as calm as Julie was. He was dashing in his formal, black tailcoat and bow tie.

A father - son moment before the wedding.

The architecture of the Cathedral was absolutely incredible. Although cold outside, the evening sun warmed the inside as it shone through the stained glass windows.

Eric and Julie were each escorted down the aisle by both of their parents. So special!

We had a couple minutes to grab some shots of the wedding party right before the reception. They had fun with this very presidential, historic look in one of the rooms at the Milwaukee Rite Center. Such a fun group!

Gorgeous! Eric and Julie enjoying a tender moment during their first dance as husband and wife.

Such sweet moments of Eric and Julie with their beaming parents.

Huge thanks to Keith Turner from Midwest Sound who kept the dance floor rocking all night. SO much spirited celebration and dancing all night long.

Congratulations again, Eric and Julie! God has so many lifelong blessings in store for the two of you. We can't wait to hear how the rest of your love story unfolds!
