Amore Mio (My Love): A Bold Taste of Italy in Downtown Milwaukee

November 1, 2018

It’s true, Wisconsin has an affinity for rustic barn weddings. We love a romantic, gorgeously styled barn wedding as much as the next Midwesterner, but here at Fancier Magazine our mission is to push the envelope, breathe life into tired wedding trends and blur the line between traditional and the unexpected. This talented team accomplished that mission by perfectly combining both masculine and feminine elements with chic, Mediterranean style. If you’re a stylish Midwesterner with a *thing* for Italy, you’re about to have major heart eyes for this Milwaukee wedding inspiration shoot on the rooftop at The Kimpton Journeyman!

This gorgeous Milwaukee wedding venue offers unmatched hospitality, warm comfort, incredible Mediterranean cuisine and beautiful rooftop views of the city. Mixing an Italian influence with modern details, Rosewood Weddings styled this wedding editorial to inspire the well-traveled couple planning an elevated wedding in Wisconsin. Miss Molly’s Cafe provided the adorable bite-size treats and doggie cupcakes for this shoot, and Wood Violet artfully designed a unique driftwood altar and two adorable “groom bouquets” for our sweet (real life!) couple.

Ready to be totally charmed?! Let’s take a look!

detail to love: androgynous groom fashion

We friggin’ LOVE a man wearing (or holding!) flowers. Floral ties are wonderful, but we seriously can’t get enough of this stunning floral print jacket. Are you an ultra-chic guy looking for a perfectly fitted suit for your Wisconsin wedding? Look no further — Nas at NL Suits in downtown Milwaukee has your back.

detail to love: a bold, color blocked invitation suite

In addition to the stunning color palette (and the little pop of blue!) we’re loving the mix of bold, masculine type and soft, feminine pink in this stationery suite by Hall Creative Co.

idea to love: an intimate rooftop ceremony

We really dig small, intimate ceremonies. Sure, the rooftop at The Journeyman can accommodate more, but imagine a sweet little ceremony overlooking the city with only your closest family and friends. This team staged a ceremony for only 18 guests — how darling!

detail to love: groom bouquets

We’re swooning over these adorable little groom bouquets! We especially love Wood Violet’s choice to stick with greenery and herbs for these little bouquets, and to finish them off with a lovely pop of blue!

idea to love: confetti alternative 

Confetti is always super fun, but for this shoot, Rosewood Weddings opted for a more theme-appropriate and organic alternative — loose olive branch leaves! Fantastico!

details to love: androgynous table styling

Once again, we love the mixing of more masculine elements (that awesome cigar!) with a soft, pink color palette. Also, how ridiculously cute is that tiny bottle of limoncello? What an adorable favor for your guests! (Side note — that cute lil’ tag by Hall Creative Co. is giving us Alice in Wonderland vibes and we aren’t sorry about it.)
