Turner Hall Ballroom; The stage is set, the lights go down, the crowd sputters to a whisper in anticipation of the opening act. A nervous man stands stage center as a gorgeous woman makes her way down the aisle. The crowd turns all attention to her… this is no opening act, it is the beginning. It is the marriage of Leigh Anne and Eric. The two ultra music lovers were married at Turner Hall Ballroom, one of their favorite places to see a show in Milwaukee, WI. When not traveling to their next music festival, you can probably find them at Turner Hall or the Pabst Theater. Along with their love for music, these two people could not be more perfect for each other. An artist on one side and a stylish fashion buyer on the other. Their loves, passions, talents and over a year of collecting and planning created one of the coolest weddings we have seen! DIY heaven is an understatement. Eric and Leigh Anne went to extreme lengths to make sure everything was perfect and custom. They traveled to Northern Wisconsin to collect all the birch for the ceremony, they spent every weekend hunting for vintage items, they thought about everything from the small accessories to wear, too the mismatched chairs, too the last minute place cards Eric made from old playing cards… We love each and every detail and image captured by Valo Photography.
