Down The Aisle: Schmit-Stanley 6.5.21

Updated: Nov 13, 2022

Nicole and Jonathon's June 2021 wedding was a timeless soirée layered with romantic flair.

Meet the Stanley's... Nicole and Jonathon met while Jonathon was visiting Milwaukee with some friends back in 2017. Nicole is from the Milwaukee area and Jonathon grew up in northern Illinois. Day to day Nicole works as an Occupational Therapist and Jonathon works in insurance industry. The two enjoy spending time with their new pup Cooper, going for walks, watching a good movie, and enjoying dinner at their favorite restaurants.

THE PROPOSAL: "Jonathan told me that we were going to a soccer party in MKE, but he played soccer at Oshkosh so I had tons of questions of course. I met him at his apartment and he drove us to Kadish park, where we walked to a spot that overlooked the whole city and that’s where he proposed! He had a bunch of his friends hiding in the bushes taking pictures from every angle and they all popped out after he asked, which was so amazing. Then we got a drink at Dorsia and we went to MKE Brewery where so many of our friends and our families were there to celebrate with a surprise engagement party!" -Nicole Stanley

WHEN? The Stanley's made it official on June 5th, 2021

WHERE? The ceremony took place at St. Anthony's Parish (Pewaukee, WI), Nicole's childhood school. The reception was held in the Crystal Ballroom at The Hilton Milwaukee City Center.


Nicole and Jonathon incorporated many beautiful details into their day, including, but not limited to: the stunning beading on the bride's gown, fresh white peonies, bow ties, a pearl intertwined cake, silver bands, and a grand ballroom feel.


The Stanley's love was palpable throughout the entire day, with their endless smiles, first dance to "My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw, and the rich decor accents of classic white floral with stunning apparel choices and gold accents.
