Nicole and Joe | A New Years Eve Wedding at the Black Swan

Nicole & Joe are married!

New Years Eve is something special and … just another day all at the same time. There are tons going on and it’s always a battle with “what to do on New Years”. But when you’re invited to a wedding, it’s the. Best. There has been a party planned for you! I can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year, than with friends, family celebrating two very special people.

This year, Nicole & Joe were our very special people. We rang in 2022 with them, their daughters and closest people – and Rosewood Weddings – under a balloon drop. 

The day started at some gorgeous Milwaukee airbnb’s and a great First Look before the ceremony at Black Swan. Nicole & Joe said the ceremony was their favorite part of the whole day! “Lots of laughs, genuine love, and some bloopers…a lot like us!”

Nicole & Joe said, “There is no such thing as “perfection,” no matter how many hours you spend scrolling on Pinterest,  figuring out a seating chart, or curating a playlist. Whatever happens that day, it will still be the best ever. Let go of what you can’t control (looking at you, Covid) and soak in every moment you can. And hire amazing photographers to be extra eyes capturing everything else!”

Congratulations Nicole & Joe!

All the sweet details…
