Hello future Brides and Grooms! My name is Sammi Ehlke, the owner of Wishful Wedding. For the past 3 year, I helped brides and grooms in Wisconsin plan ceremonies, receptions, and any other wedding related events. The warmer weather has taken me to Austin, TX and I am ready to help future Texans plan their dream weddings! I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Business in 2016 from Purdue University. Before starting Wishful Weddings, I was the event planner and coordinator for Wisconsin’s largest apartment rental trade show in March 2018 at the Alliant Energy Center, and also planned and coordinated a grand opening event for a local Madison, WI business. My goal as your wedding planner is to work hard and make sure that you have a gorgeous, stress-free wedding that exceeds your expectations♥

Hello beautiful couples, my name is Felicia Sopa and I’m the newest wedding coordinator to Wishful Weddings, LLC. Born and raised in the Wauwatosa area. Achieved an Associate’s degree in Art Therapy at Alverno College and 10+ years in the serving industry. You could say being multi-talented between the both worlds, authenticity, hardworking, attention to deal, and a creative dreamer are definitely descriptions you would find in my DNA. I officially started my own business as a freelance artist called Steady Heart Creative Artist in 2017; specializing in murals, custom pieces, wedding signs, and makeup artistry. Being welcomed with opened arms to the Wishful Wedding’s team has been nothing but a blessing. Sammi and I actually met at my good friend’s wedding in June 2018 in the Milwaukee area, as a day-of coordinator. From that point on, Sammi has guided me under her wing as a wedding coordinator and also helped my freelance business grow. With that being said, our partnership with you and your partner, our goal is bring your special day to life without the stress.

When I’m not in the wedding planning grind; honestly, you can find me most likely winding down with a glass of wine in my hand while watching The Office, Stranger Things or a new Netflix series. When going out in town with my boyfriend, Ben, we love trying new restaurants. Finks, Parkside 23, Maxie’s Southern Comfort are our favorites!

I look forward to working with you and to celebrate this special moments with you.
