A Creamery 201 Wedding

Published On: Wednesday, September 28, 2022By Categories: Blog, WeddingsTags: , , , , ,

Jefferson County is home to some of the most beautiful, unique, affordable, and conveniently located event venues in Wisconsin. Join us as we take you on a journey of LOVE. We’re partnering with couples that are getting married or were recently married in one of our beautiful locales. Meet Megan and Wyatt. This couple said their “I dos” in June of 2021 at Creamery 201 in Fort Atkinson.

Where are you and your partner originally from?

Megan is from Madison, WI and Wyatt is from Clinton, IL. We currently live in Fort Atkinson

How did you meet?

We met when Wyatt was working in Madison and Megan was home from college for the summer.

Tell us your engagement story!

Wyatt began planning for the New Year’s Eve proposal back in October of 2019. He “spontaneously” took Megan ring shopping to find the one she liked the best, but told her not to be expecting anything due to finances. He went back and bought the ring the next day. Wyatt’s next step was asking Megan’s dad for his permission to marry her. He was so nervous, he never even actually opened the box to show Peter the ring.

Two months later, we took our trip to Door County for the Cherry Drop in Sister Bay on New Year’s Eve. Several of Wyatt’s friends almost blew the surprise that Wyatt had planned for Megan by texting him ‘good luck’ and ‘did you do it, yet?’ before midnight. 10 minutes before midnight, we found our spot to watch the Cherry Drop. After counting down to midnight, Wyatt got down on one knee. Megan was upset because she thought Wyatt was tying his shoe, and she wanted her “New Year’s Kiss.” Then, when he pulled out the ring, it all made sense.

What made you choose your venues?

We initially had a venue picked out in Downtown Madison and then COVID hit. Six months before our big day, we decided that we wanted to move our wedding to Jefferson County so we could still have our dream wedding. After doing some research on area venues, we went and looked at Creamery 201 and fell in love with the space. They were so understanding willing to work with us, so everything just fell into place.

Which vendor(s) impressed and/or helped you the most and why?

All of our vendors impressed us and we were so happy with how our day turned out. Katie and Abbie at Creamery 201 went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly. Leading up to our wedding day, they were very responsive and answered all of our questions promptly. The morning of our wedding, we did not have to lift a finger. Abbie was able to grasp our vision for the day and get everything set up to be better than we had imagined. It was truly a stress free wedding morning and all we had to focus on was getting ready and not tripping as we walked down the aisle. Throughout the day, they continued to check in with us to see if we needed anything. Then at the end of the night, they quickly packed everything up into boxes so we did not have to worry about doing that.

What was your favorite part about your big day?

How do we pick just one? Our favorite part was our “first touch” before our ceremony. We knew that we wanted to save our first look for when the curtains opened and Megan walked down the aisle. However, we also knew that we wanted to be able to talk to each other to ease our nerves before the ceremony. We decided to stand on opposite sides of one of the beautiful columns in Creamery 201 so we could talk, exchange letters, hold hands, and just have a few moments to ourselves. When we did this, it gave us the chance to relax and to just be together for a few minutes before everyone else arrived.

Another one of our favorite parts was immediately following the ceremony. We rented a party bus to take us around the area to celebrate with our wedding party and take photos at various locations. We stopped at the Milwaukee St foot bridge and Rotary Park in Jefferson and Lorman Bicentennial Park in Fort Atkinson. We even made a pit stop at Brocks River Walk Tavern before heading back for the reception.

What advice would you share with couples looking to have their celebration in Jefferson County?

Do it! The overall experience was outstanding. Vendors and businesses were so friendly and willing to accommodate our needs and budget. Because of this, we were able to stretch our money and do so much more with our day than what we could have done in Madison. We were able to have everything we wanted and didn’t need to sacrifice anything.
