Choosing the perfect venue for your big day can sometimes be difficult, but for Stephanie and Mitchell the choice was clear! Johnson Motor Sales, which is the family’s vintage car business, was just the place for Stephanie and Mitchell to exchange their vows. Not only do they love vintage cars, but the couple decided a vintage themed wedding would complete the decor nicely — and it did! Retro car memorabilia, classic black and white attire, and soft cream florals dressed the venue as the couple tied the knot. And, making the day even more amazing, Beau Petersen Photography was there to capture it all!
Stephanie and Mitchell
Johnson Motor Sales, New Richmond, Wisconsin
Our wedding inspiration came from our love of vintage, particularly vintage cars. We had the wedding at my family’s dealership. I’ve grown up with a love for vintage cars and pretty much anything vintage for that matter. It was a passion that was passed down from my parents to me. Mitch shares this same passion and has the gift of being able to know how to fix absolutely anything and everything. Vintage or not. So he has grown to become very involved in our family business and family hobbies such as vintage car racing.
My favorite part of our wedding was being able to have our wedding be an exact reflection of who we are. We were able to customize our entire ceremony, use my father’s vintage yellow greyhound bus to hangout on that day, and get married and celebrate in a space that meant so much to both of us. Mitch says his favorite moment was watching me walk down the aisle. The end result was astonishing and being able to pull it all off with the help of our family and friends was nothing short of a dream come true.
The Couple Recommends:
Our photographer and mc were above exceptional! They work so great together and kept the day on task so that everything went perfect! We also had a singer during our ceremony, Maggie Meath, whose voice is absolutely breath taking and made our wedding ceremony feel like a dream. Our officiant Carolyn was so great to work with and so accommodating. With her we were able to create a wedding ceremony that was personalized perfectly to fit our vision and who we are. Mike Higgins was our videographer and every time we watch our wedding video we get to relive that special day over and over again. Not only was the video amazing but he interviewed family and friends asking for words of advice and best wishes (which we had no idea was happening).
