Onesto Wedding in Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Emma + Buster

Onesto Wedding in Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Emma + Buster


Emma + Buster’s Love Story

Emma and Buster met in a dorm room hallway on their first day of college orientation. Buster and his friend stopped Emma to ask her name. Buster stood out to Emma right away. Thanks to his unique name, she was able to find him on Facebook when she got back to her dorm room. She found out that this long-haired, muscular, captain of the hockey team already had a girlfriend, so Emma put him out of her mind. A couple of months passed and one night as Emma got in her car to head to dinner, it wouldn’t start. But guess who saved the day?! Buster came out of nowhere and was able to jump-start her car. Another couple of months passed by and Emma heard Buster was now a single man. She knew she wanted to get to know him better so she came up with a plan! Emma befriended another hockey player to earn an invitation to the hockey team’s Christmas party where she would make her move. When she arrived at the party, she ran into Buster’s twin brother and asked very matter of factly, “Where’s your brother?”. As soon as his brother brought him over to meet Emma, Buster kissed her, and the two have been inseparable since. Onesto Milwaukee’s intimate event space nestled in the heart of downtown Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward was the perfect place to celebrate Emma and Buster’s love story.

Telling Their Love Story

“My work includes a lot of warm, intimate tones which were ideal for the gorgeous exposed cream city brick at Onesto. My style is warm, natural, cozy, and has a hint of moodiness. Emma and Buster are so in love which is evident in their photos.”

Designing Enchanted Beauty

Emma and Buster are no doubt meant to be and their love was so fun to embody in the design of this celebration. Onesto’s event space is beautiful on its own, just like Emma and Buster’s love story. To highlight that, we used an enchanted color palette of jewel tones, neutrals, and metallics. This gave the space an extra romantic touch and popped against the warm wood details and cream city brick.
