Stylized Wedding Shoot at Poplar Hall in Appleton, Wisconsin

July 19, 2022

Modern Wedding Ceremony & Reception Venue on Wisconsin’s Fox River

Our recent styled shoot with 88 Events at the stunning Poplar Hall in downtown Appleton brought together some of Northeast Wisconsin’s best wedding vendors. Located along the Fox River nextdoor to the Courtyard by Marriott Appleton Riverfront, Poplar Hall first opened in fall of 2021. The Hall is able to host all kinds of events, including wedding ceremonies and receptions, from an intimate dozen to 160 guests. With two levels, a main floor and a mezzanine, plus an outdoor space with river views, the options are endless. Poplar Hall also has a catering kitchen as well as a list of approved caterers.
We asked the team at Poplar Hall how they went about preparing for the shoot. Here’s what they had to say:

A Venue to Suit Every Wedding Style
“Our venue is virtually a blank canvas. With the right flowers and decorations, you can make it even more stunning!”

Collaboration is Key
“Besides the fact that these vendors are all AMAZING, everyone worked together in harmony and just made everything work. It was such a pleasure to work with them all!”

The Perfect Bride & Groom for Poplar Hall
“Our ideal bride and groom would be a couple that is looking for a unique, special venue with hotel accommodations right next door as well as a beautiful patio that’s perfect for a ceremony.”
