Tony & Zeus / St. James 1868 Milwaukee

April 30, 2021

“I was on vacation visiting my brother in Milwaukee. He suggested that I try a yoga class to meet some people, so I joined a studio on the Eastside. I met Tony there; our first interaction was him asking me to fill out a March madness bracket. I had no idea what that meant, but thought he was cute so I gave it a try. Soon, friendly competition started and we began watching all of the games together. Naturally, I beat him and picked the winning team! Once summer began, Tony took me to all of the fun activities in Milwaukee like Summerfest, hiking, paddleboarding, and many many festivals. I extended my stay as long as I could, but at the end of summer, it was time for me to head back home to Jordan. Thankfully, Tony did not want me to leave; he proposed and we have been together ever since!” – Zeus

Renee, a talented lead planner at Elevate Events dreamed up this inspiration piece! The color story for this intimate dinner party was influenced by the gorgeous soft hues in the St. James’ Dutchess suite. The creams and subtle peachy-pink hues stole the show while being accompanied by the warm wood tones of the table itself. Zeus wore a satin gown which made the perfect backdrop to display a hand-crafted floral tattoo made by Bird & Bumble. Owner Rebecca chose softer neutral hues mixed with pops of deeper tones that perfectly accented Zeus’ skin tone and dark hair.
