Dawn & Bill

October 20th, 2018

Bride & Groom

If you ask, Dawn and Bill will tell you they met in jail. That’s probably not true. But wherever it was, it led to long phone conversations, a first date with no food, and a lot of happiness between then and now.

Bill Hoefferle

When Dawn found out I was super-tall (5’7″ on the Internet) and could reach things on the almost-top shelf, she let me stick around. She also brought me rum balls on our first date. Win. 😊

Dawn Kuczwara

When Bill and I first talked on the phone, I had a cold. He heard my Kathleen-Turner-sick-voice and still wanted to go out with me. That’s when I knew he was a keeper.

Our Love Story

Our First Date

Dec 22, 2012

We spent our first date at a local restaurant, but we were so busy talking we never ordered any food.

Love and fun and love

Falling in love wasn't a single event, but something we have done with one another every day for the last 5 years

The Unrecorded Proposal

Dec 29, 2017

It was an incredibly romantic proposal. Bill got down on one knee during the Happily Ever After fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom and asked Dawn to marry him in front of all 4 of their kids. It was overwhelming and picturesque. Unfortunately, it was so overwhelming, no one got pictures or video.

The Big Day!

Oct 20, 2018

We're excited to spend a special day with our close family and friends making this thing official. While it will be a very small event, all those we know and love will be in our hearts.

It’s not much of a destination as far as destination weddings go, but planning a weekend with everyone in Milwaukee means more time spent with those we love.
