A Touch of Rustic & Trend by Paper Antler Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding was a pure celebration of family, friends, great food and tons of dancing. Lissa and Paul aimed to throw a great party, choosing the lush Hilltop in Spring Green, Wisconsin as their unique venue. Paul works as a nurse in a local ER and is also a flight nurse in the Air Force; Lissa works as an attorney. The ten-month engagement was an incredibly busy time, as Paul was deployed overseas, they bought a new house, and, about three months before the wedding, they found out they were expecting their first baby! Whew..!  They still pulled off one heck of gorgeous and sweet wedding.  The décor balanced rustic details with a touch of ikat trend and a dash of peachy romance… all captured beautifully by the good folks at Paper Antler!

Lissa was such a classic beauty in a Romona Keveza Legends gown and matching mantilla veil, while the bridesmaids wore grey chiffon frocks by J. Crew to complement the organic palette of greys, greens, and soft peach.  The couple wed surrounded by loved ones and the great embrace of nature. 

The drought that struck the midwest over the summer let up just in time for the wedding — it was raining on and off on the day-of. Luckily, the rain, which lit up the lush green landscape, stopped thirty minutes before and they were able to host most of the festivities outdoors.  After a cocktail hour of lawn games, guests settled into a romantic nook on the property for a reception of rustic beauty.

Daffodil Parker wove peach garden roses into the décor adding a soft romantic element against the trendy ikat patterned table runners and rustic display of candlelight.  Instead of a wedding cake, the couple opted for fresh-out-the-oven homemade cookies and ice cream. The guests loved it!

Massive congratulations to Lissa and Paul on their new family!
