VENDORS WE LOVE:
Throughout the years, we’ve worked with so many amazing vendors; either side by side or in direct partnership. Here are a few of our recommendations.
We highly recommend Miss Ruby for all your bridal styling needs. Wedding gowns, mother of the bride or groom, bridesmaids, it’s all here! We often ask our brides where they got their dress and so many times, with a twinkle in their eye, they say “Miss Ruby!”
At Miss Ruby Your bridal shopping experience is just as important as finding the right dress, which is why we strive to create a fun & relaxing environment for all our wonderful brides & guests.
When you visit our charming boutique you’ll feel cozy and at home. Come play dress up with our stylists and leave feeling like you had the best time – and bought the most fabulous dress.
Although BBJ isn’t just a Milwaukee company (we are all about local companies) luckily, our local BBJ is a simple, easy resource for us to rent linens on behalf of our clients. We try to be your one stop shop by offering this service.
BBJ rents exquisite table linens and exclusive accessories to brides, planners, event designers, florists, caterers and hosts who want to create innovative, fashionable table experiences at their events.
Sweet Eva’s Chocolates was born out of a desire to create healthier versions of our family’s favorite chocolates. We make our chocolates with the finest bittersweet chocolate, 70% to 99% cocoa, and then add unique combinations of natural and organic ingredients to make our wholesome chocolate treats. Our chocolates contain no soy, corn syrup, fillers, artificial colors* or flavorings, preservatives and are free of gluten ingredients**. Most of our chocolates contain no dairy and, for those with cocoa allergies, we offer fabulous French soy-free white chocolate options. For those with other dietary restrictions, please contact us. We are happy to work with you to try to accommodate your needs.
Sweet Eva’s Chocolates is family-run and is named after our beautiful daughter who serves as our Chief Inspiration Officer. We love coming together to produce amazing tasting chocolates that everyone can enjoy.
We currently offer a wide variety of barks, meltaways, dulce de leche items, tea and coffee infusions and crisps. We are always creating new and interesting flavor combinations. Samples are available and are always encouraged. Once you try a Sweet Eva’s chocolate, you will understand why using the finest ingredients makes for the best tasting chocolate ever.
