Our weekend was another slow winter/wedding off-season weekend. We only had 1 wedding event. It was a smaller wedding at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. Double Platinum’s office used to be right next door. I remember walking our equipment over. Kind of weird when you go to an event without the van!
It’s a great place. Lake views, good location in the city and parking.
Our weekend was a little crazy. We had 3 weddings going on in Milwaukee and the Packer playoff game ending up starting at 7pm on Saturday night. The last time they played in a playoff game was a few years back…that one was on Saturday too. I remember watching the crowd all on their phones during the ceremony and then the room cleared out during the cocktail hour. Evidently, all the guest’s went to the bar across the street. They all came back for the dinner, but then the room cleared out again!
Our bride and groom at the Harley Davidson Museum on Saturday decided to have the game on a large screen during the reception, with no sound. I thought it was a great idea and it actually and it worked. The dance floor was packed all night.
CBS 58 news called me before the event for a quick interview on my experience with playoff games and weddings. I decided not to do the interview, but I sent them to the bride and groom. The bride and groom were on the news Friday and the camera crew showed up at their event. Pretty cool. Another packed winter weekend! Bill-Dp
The room looked super nice. We even lit up the Harley’s in the room. Below is the dance floor with the game on in the background.
