Wish Upon a Cocktail + Wish Upon a Wedding / Eau Claire, Wisconsin / Samplawski Photography / Eau Claire Wedding Photography

Love being involved with community events… our latest event, Wish Upon a Cocktail which was held at the Eau Claire Golf & Country Club in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It was truly a beautiful venue with amazing decor! There were beautiful centerpieces and accent pieces all created by In the Woods Floral and Events. They truly did a beautiful job on making them look beautiful. Huge thank you to Eventful Occasions for helping to make this event a success… Angela did an amazing job at planning and putting it all together. Jenny, from Eau Claire Golf & Country Club, did an outstanding job on making sure all went smoothly at the venue.

Thank you to the cocktail sponsor… UV Vodka!

From the martini luge, to the samples of the Chocolate Cake UV Vodka, to the amazing food prepared by Chef Casey at the Eau Claire Golf & Country Club… to the table linens and music of Midwest Entertainment… this event was truly amazing. Bottles were being thrown, jungled, and on top of it, cocktails were pour… auctioned off with proceeds going to Wish Upon a Cocktail. Talented bar flair contestants had some true talent and some mad mixing skills… thank you Alchemixx for putting together the Bar Flair contest, very impressive!

Rain does not stop an event like this… but it sure does bring out the excitement everyone had! Amazing turnout for the first year of having Wish Upon a Cocktail right here in the Chippewa Valley.

Take a look for yourself… hope to see you next year!
