You know what’s wonderful about Wisconsin?! The seasons! Yeah sometimes winter may last a bit too long, BUT I still always look forward to the warm and fuzzy feeling I get with the first snow or the beauty of the pine trees all heavy with sparkly, white fluffy stuff, or even the beauty of a country landscape blanketed in the white! Now, it may get cold here sometimes, BUT, I think we forget an outdoor wedding in Wisconsin is still a possibility! With the beauty of gas heaters and fire places, warm beverages, you can create a romantic winter ceremony in the Northwoods no guest will be soon to forget! Here is fifteen ideas why it would be the “COOLEST” warm and fuzzy wedding EVER!

1. You can let mother-nature decorate for herself! How stinkin’ amazing is this landscape and ceremony backdrop?!


2. You can get married at the bottom of a ski hill like this!


3. You can get it all warm and cozy while looking awesome too by doing this:


4. You can add cozy touches like this for your guests! I know this is inside…but you could do this for your outside seating beautifully!


5. Or like this:


6. You could arrive on a sleigh and that would be AWESOME! Plus it’s a great photo opp moment for below too! Who doesn’t LOVE sleigh rides!?


7. You can takes pictures like this! They are pretty awesome when the snow catches the right light!!!


8.  You can wear fur (or faux fur) and it look like a serious classy gal!


9. Or if you’re not into fur…how ADORBS and FANCY is this cape and mittens!


10. Or you could also accessorize more casual and fantastic like this! AHHH…love this pic!


11. You can get dreamy floral shots with beautiful backgrounds!

Engagement photos! It’s “normally” your first photo shoot as a couple and is a great way to show the personality and love you share as a pair. I love seeing photographs of people in love and, even better, I love seeing the personality of the couple shining through as well! So, in your photographs don’t be afraid to step outside the box, show off your fashion style instead of toning it down, bring props of things that make you guys you, go places you love, and do things that make you happy! Here’s a few photos that are great examples of sharing love and personality!

Love and motorcycles…goes together nicely doesn’t it!



For the love of muscles and each other…impressive right?!



Photography and book love…




Or maybe you’re both little “bookies”…how about an old library photo shoot?!




For those who love to dance…how cute is this!!!



Coffee love.



To all you cowboys and cowgirls…isn’t this sweet!




Airplane loving…I think the tagline was “Plane perfect for each other” :)




Fire fighting pride!




Move lovers.




For the love of water…isn’t this lovely…the reflection and lighting are perfection!




Puppy love.







Music sweetness.








For those who love to fish…




And last, but not least…for you lovers of the bicycle!





That’s your Friday love day inspiration! Hope you enjoyed! Now go out and do what makes you, you and photograph it too! :)

{ FALL in LOVE with the TREATS of FALL }


May I start by saying to my fellow northerners…happy fall wedding season friends! (And to my not-so-notherner readers…I don’t mean to leave you out!!! If it makes you feel any better…we promise to be very jealous of your warmer weather ways in a few short months!) The joy and appreciation for the change of seasons is what keeps “most” of us northerners here, instead of those nice warm Florida Keys! Once you’ve grown up here, you can’t help but love that first crisp fall day, the first snow, the first breezes of spring, AND SUMMER…ohhhh summer…we practically hold out breath to make it last longer! The moral of the story is there are joys and treasures we adore about each time of year; and the comforts of those seasons are special to add into the details of your love day. Fall harvest time gets us enjoying an array of treats and they’re great way to incorporate the season into your day! Here’s a few idears my FALL loving FRIENDS! :)


Okay…this cake or cupcake flavor just sounds DELICIOUS! Pumpkin spice with caramel cream cheese frosting…Oh…MY…YUM!




Caramel apples…AND PRETTY caramel apples at that! What guest wouldn’t love one of these as a favor!

ba41b47e7394830834fc3c934a29b9c4 53822184c6eafcb599db70670bb39bbb




Okay…so for some reason I always incorporate milk and cookies as a fall thing…school starting-kinda treat! I think this suits probably any season…but how delighted as a guest would you be to see these little treats coming around for a late night treat!





The cuteness of a mini pie is unbearable! How adorbs and delicious do these things look!



Bite size pumpkin pies…I may be in heaven!




Have you seen these things?! They call them PIE POPS…I’ve decided I HEART PIE POPS before even taste testing! Cuteness on a stick!




Caramel corn = HAPPINESS




Or if you want more options for the snack happiness of your guests…how about this! EVERYBODY loves popcorn…I “think” it’s a FACT?! :)





Have you seen this FUN idea…WEDDING s’mores?! You can even fancy it up like in the picture below…flavored marshmallows, choices of chocolates, etc. One of these at your wedding…I’m in ASAP!





Add a little apple cider for a seasonal drink?!



Or how about a signature drink…have you ever had a hot apple cider cocktail…UMMM…AMAZ-ING!



Or more kid-friendly option…apple cider floats…doesn’t that sound YUMMERS?!




Okay and finally, one of my FAVORITE cold weather party ideas!  A HOT COCOA BAR! UMMMM…YES PLEASE! And let’s not be bias…how bout a HOT BAR?! Cocoa, coffee, and cider with all the fixings and additives (chocolate, white chocolate, peppermint, caramel, marshmallows, maybe a little something-something for the guests over 21) to warm those sweet little guests of yours up in a hot minute!





Okay, that’s the FUN FALL TREATS to add to your LOVE DAY!  Hope you enjoyed…think I’m gonna make myself some hot cocoa now…mmmtay! Happy Friday my friends! AND don’t forget for more wedding inspiration, don’t miss Visuelle Productions upcoming Bridal Show: Sunday, November 2 at the Performing Arts Center in Appleton 10:30am through 3:00pm!
