Our new favorite videographer

Milwaukee doesn’t have a lot of wedding videographers.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe because it’s a time-intensive job that requires hours sitting with earphones on, watching, clipping, capturing, editing, coordinating, and referencing, and that’s all AFTER the hours spent actually filming the wedding day. Maybe because there truly is a bit of an intense passion, [...]

Megan & Chris {May 22 2015}

It was about 1.5 years of planning, some meetings, design thoughts, and honestly lots of laid back decision making.  Megan and Chris are sweet – on each other and with others – and they wanted a wedding day that was not only all about the actual “getting married” part, but something vintage and classic, rustic [...]

The Gala of the Year

We helped with the Port Catholic School annual fundraising Gala in April, and it was out of this world gorgeous!!  (Plus it raised over $110,000!) With a delightful Alice in Wonderland theme, we were able to produce a lovely evening for all who attended. Guests arrived and walked through the Rabbit Hole, registered, and were [...]

The Cake!

I am so asking Cakes by Erin Salerno to do this – a golden, glistening two-tiered cake covered in luster dust with a cute Hello Kitty holding up the Birthday Girl’s number!  I’m tempted to ask for vanilla cake, but Hannah has asked for chocolate with pink buttercream filling.  She’s got style, that’s for sure!

Finished Hello Kitty Birthday Invitations

Well, everything’s been printed up – I used a local printer for the 10 invitations and it cost me about $8 total.  Then, after cutting them out and getting hot pink envelopes (I used A7 size for the roughly 5×7 cards) from Amazon, I put on some gold stamping glue to decorate the little middle [...]

Erin & Christopher {September 2014}

A fresh taste on a Milwaukee classic, Erin and Christopher chose a great venue to host both their wedding ceremony and their reception.  The couple had a streamlined, elegant affair and spent the entire day toasted by their family and friends at this downtown landmark.  We remember their day fondly and wish them love forever! [...]

Hello Kitty Golden Birthday Invitations

A party needs to have an invitation, and I’m still a fan of the old fashioned mailing vs an evite.  I found a great Hello Kitty decal with a transparent background online and popped it into Illustrator, let Hannah pick the background, the colors of the fonts (OK, I guided her a bit) and plan [...]

Why It’s Been Few & Far Between

Sigh…you know us ladies…one of us is always having a baby!  Between all the Golden Chic girls, since starting Golden Chic in 2006, we’ve had 10 babies between us all.  Meet the latest addition, which is why I’ve been absentee over the past few months.  And Baby #11 (Cara’s!) should arrive in August sometime.  This [...]
