Pretty Pretend Wedding Show 2017

Hi friends! Let's catch up, shall we? We love keeping you up to speed on the latest happenings at Coqui! Last weekend we participated in an amazing event called the Pretty Pretend Wedding Show. If you're unfamiliar, this show takes place at Rustic Manor 1848, one of Wisconsin's premiere rustic wedding venues that exudes loads of charm and elegance in a barn setting. For the bride to be, this show is perfect because you're able to experience top wedding vendors first hand in a "pretend wedding" brunch! Craft cocktails, dessert samplings, unique brunch service, mingling with vendors and getting to know their aesthetic is the name of the game! Take a peek below at the gorgeous photos by Elizabeth Haase Photography. Enjoy!

Cheers, 

#coquigirlgang

WEDMKE!

Hey friends! It's been a crazy busy past few weeks for the Coqui Girl Gang! From wedding shows to wedding invitation consultations, we have been running around like mad women, but we truly love what we do! We feel so fortunate to be able to work with so many great clients.

A few weeks ago we had the great pleasure of participating in one of Milwaukee's newest wedding showcases, WEDMKE. This event features distinctive, local vendors in a super trendy and hip setting (aka Turner Hall). This wedding showcase invites local vendors that have unique offerings and services, ranging from gourmet eats to floral crowns! Local musicians play music as you peruse each vendor's station! This is the perfect wedding showcase to attend for couple's seeking to add a touch hipster to their wedding. 

Sounds pretty fun, right? Here's a few photos from the event for your viewing pleasure, enjoy! All pictures brought to you by the amazing Front Room Photography!

Love, Team Coqui
