Ingrid and Justin were married at Anchor Covenant Church, followed by a reception at Geneva National Golf Resort in Lake Geneva, Wisc. on September 13. Ingrid looked fabulous is an A-line gown with a strapless sweetheart neckline and finished with a yellow beaded sash. She donned her hair in a low updo and carried a bright bouquet of yellow roses, daffodils, billy balls, ranunculus, and succulents. Her ‘maids opted for short light gray chiffon dresses, while the groom and his men looked dapper in gray suits and yellow neck ties. The intimate crowd of 95 guests gathered at Anchor Covenant Church as the pair exchanged vows in a traditional ceremony. “My groom did an amazing job with the ceremony set up,” Ingrid said of the ceremony decor. “He had a vision of what to do with our door- which was taken from my dad’s childhood home, which my grandfather built, and used it as the main piece behind us as we said our vows.” What a sentimental touch! A reception followed at a nearby golf resort. Guests were greeted by a chalkboard sign decorated with yellow balloons. ” When arriving to the reception, everyone was gushing about the food and amazing appetizers that were available,” Ingrid said. Appetizers included mini grilled cheeses, vegetarian egg rolls, and Italian sausage. The reception space was filled with handmade touches including baby photos of the couple, handwritten place cards (by the groom), and creative table names. Guests were asked to leave their cards in a rustic basket adorned with bunting. For dessert guests enjoyed a three-tier square cake with yellow and gray frosted roses and a Mr. and Mrs. topper. Ingrid advises couples to keep their heads up while planning. “Positive attitudes will make all the difference when little things do not go the way your planned.” See the full board here.

Caitlin + Seth: A Vibrant Vintage Spring Wisconsin Camp Wedding By Stephanie Bassos Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Caitlin and Seth were married at Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wis. on May 24. “We wanted to choose a place that we could just be laid back with decorating and everyone could just enjoy being together,” Caitlin said. “We asked our friends David and Tereasa, who own Camp Wandawega if we could get married there, and they said yes! It was such a natural atmosphere for our event.” The bride wore her mother’s lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a floor-length veil and jeweled sash, while the groom wore a navy blue suit, accessorized with a pink tie. Fun fact: South Social & Home is actually owned by Caitlin! She designed her own bouquet filled with amaryllis, ranunculuses, roses, coxcombs, and peonies. Before the ceremony, the couple opted to do a first look overlooking the lake. “The weather was perfect, sunny and 75,” she said. The outdoor chapel’s sides were hung with window panels, and the ceiling was hung with crepe paper tassel garlands. Super duper do-it-yourself, right? “Friends helped with decorations and setting up. It was really a group effort with friends and family to get things set up,” Caitlin said. When not dining and dancing inside the tent, guests mingled on the lawn. Tables were decorated with crisp, white linens, candlesticks, and overflowing, gold mercury glass centerpieces. Each place setting featured a vintage plate and tea towels bundled with twine. “Attire was casual dress up. We wanted people to feel comfortable, so the dress code was lax,” she said. The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Love is all Around” by the Troggs, and at the end of the night, cut their two-tiered buttercream cake. There was also yummy Rice Krispie treats and macaroons too. See the full board here.

Angel + Jerry: A Whimsical Pastel Summer Wisconsin Backyard Wedding By Laurelyn Savannah Photography

Angel and Jerry were married at the bride’s parent’s home in Fennimore, Wis. on June 22. “The inspiration for the wedding actually came a lot from Pinterest,” Angel said. “I chose a pastel color scheme of pinks, whites, creams, and a little bit of greens and purples.” The bride wore a blush dropped waist wedding gown with a beaded bodice, accessorized with no shoes in lieu for henna, while the groom wore a pale blue button-up shirt, gray pants, suspenders, and a skull bow tie. Bridesmaids wore white long chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. Guests were directed to the backyard ceremony with a wooden arrow sign post and greeted with a chalkboard sign that encouraged to pick a seat not a side. “OH MY! It was beautiful, the sun was out, the birds were chirping, and both the best man and maid of honor forgot the rings,” she said. “Thankfully, we didn’t have to go far.” To symbolize their unity, the couple chose to do a handfast in front of a paper crane altar arrangement. “Afterwards, we had enough time to snap a couple of photos before one of the biggest rain storms of the year hit,” Angel said. The tented reception was decorated with lace balloons and cafe string lights from the ceiling, but the tables were decorated with white linens, vintage china, and tree stump centerpieces that featured pillar candles. Our favorite detail? The ice cream bar with all the toppings! Yum. See the full board here.
