https://youtu.be/es-8CPwvH9U When the car turns north on Interstate 39 and zooms past Wausau for a destination wedding, the North Woods of Wisconsin begin to take shape. Tree trunks get bigger. The air is fresh. Lakes look like gemstones as sunlight bounces off rippling waters. We’ve been up north many times to film weddings, but we’d never had the chance to record at Red Crown Lodge in Woodruff, Wis. We were excited to explore this grand retreat AND start filming the wedding weekend of fun for bride MacKenzie and groom Andrew. We’d never been to Red Crown before because the private…

Sound the alarms, because the Story Hill FireHouse has opened its doors (its stunning, custom-built, firetruck-size doors) as one of Milwaukee’s hot new wedding venues.  The newly renovated 1927 bungalow-style firehouse is the imaginative creation of the vivacious Janelle Meyer Brown, owner of Evenement. After 25 years in the event planning business, Brown finally wanted her own venue, and she found a real jewel. FireHouse Character The historic brick firehouse, nestled on the western edge of Milwaukee where it’s convenient to downtown as well as the western suburbs, shines with character. From its sliding pole, antique hook ladder, firefighter dorms…

If you’re lucky enough to book Discovery World and Bartolotta at Pier Wisconsin for your wedding, you not only will have a stunning event, but you’ll be treated to a preview that is truly special. Every spring and fall, Bartolotta invites couples and their guests to a full-fledged tasting to sample their excellent menu. It’s a dazzling display of food, decor and atmosphere.

And the generous folks at Bartolotta invite us to…

WEDMKE + Sweet Pea Cinema = Fun

When you step into Turner Hall for WEDMKE, the vibe of  hundreds of concerts played in the space still lingers. It’s electric. It also could be the buzz of 50-plus vendors chatting with couples who are exploring ideas for their weddings. Sweet Pea Cinema doesn’t participate in many wedding shows. To be honest, wedding shows are not the best forum to showcase wedding videos. There’s too much fun, commotion and definitely a lot of noise. Audio is such a key part of our films that we always tell wedding show visitors that they need to experience our videos in a…

Our inbox is being bombarded with so many newly engaged couples, and it’s super fun to start planning amazing wedding films for many of them. This week is also fun for us because it bookends our favorite wedding shows: Milwaukee’s Magnificent Bride, which was last Sunday, and WEDMKE, which is this Sunday. Both shows put you in touch with wonderful wedding professionals. And I’d definitely put Sweet Pea Cinema in that category. And both shows offer completely different vibes. MMB puts on a show for all engaged MMB is hosted at the Pfister Hotel, one of Milwaukee’s most elegant places…

Big screens are the best way to watch a Sweet Pea Cinema wedding video. Sure, we know most couples — and their families and friends — first watch everything on their phones. We get it! You want to see it ASAP. But for the love of all things movie-related, please make sure to watch the whole project on your biggest, sharpest badass TV. Why? Because when you see all the action, audio and music on a big screen, you will find yourself having plunged head first back into the beauty of a wedding day. Big Screen Brings Memories to Life…

A grand entrance is a thing to behold. And when it’s the grand entrance of a stunning bride on the arm of her adoring father as he walks her down the ever-so-dramatic aisle of the Basilica of St. Josaphat … well, it can be downright stunning. That’s exactly the case for Bridget and Chris, who said their vows this year at Milwaukee’s most stunning Catholic church. It’s such a beautiful moment that we’re sharing it as part of our Moments of a Lifetime series. It’s just so moving! The scene starts with Bridget and her father behind the main doors…

Families’ Bond Blooms into Love in Springfield

Families bond in many ways: location, church, civic groups and kids. As kids, Maureen and John knew each other quite well. Their families in Springfield, Ill., had forged deep connections through church, camping trips and sports. While growing up, Maureen remembers John as just another one of her brother’s friends. Fast forward many years, and those close bonds of friendship paved the way for something new. About four years ago, Maureen’s sister decided these two should meet and invited them to a gathering to see if sparks would fly. The attraction was immediate, Maureen said, and they’ve been together ever since. And…
