Summer is officially here!  What would be more  exciting than to enjoy the beautiful weather and gorgeous Wisconsin scenery than having a Camp Wedding?

Camp Wedding would allow you to creatively connect to nature.

How about spending your honeynoon in a teepee?

For personal flair, cute signs are always appreciated…

Cute cards and log books are also always interesting and add that eco friendly flair.

Lastly, for a truly rustic wedding, try going for a venue that offers exposed beams and open sides allowing you to be part of the natural setting!

Knock your socks off and get your feet in the sand!


Summer is just around the corner and what better way to escape the heat than throwing a gorgeous underground wedding!

Underground weddings have been around forever but are now gaining in popularity because they offer something for any type of wedding.

If you are going for a classy wedding, you can have it in an old wine cellar…images (2)

If you are bold you can hold you wedding in a cave with a lake….

Just look at the incredible photos you would be able to get with a lake cave! e5191edd5d9164e2cbb02f454b7ebb57.jpg

Or maybe you love the idea of a cave, but aren’t too thrilled about getting your dress wet…

Or maybe you want something completely different altogether. One option is a to have your wedding in a basement with skylights.

Every wedding also needs some personal touches and what would be cooler than an underground boat if your space will allow it? images (3)

Another cute personal touch is to give your guests either peices of the cave you are being married in or sample of the water.  Jefferson+Underground+Wedding+Ceremony+and+Reception+Photos+by+Oldani+Photography+St.+Louis+Wedding+Photographers3.jpg

Have you been excited for shark week?! Sometimes it just takes a little theme to get people excited! I don’t even watch anything on shark week, besides what I catch while walking through the living room when the hubs is relaxing, but I get hyped nonetheless! It just sounds fun…SHARK WEEK! Themes are fun in general no matter how literal or lightly influenced they make an event, it just helps you head in a direction that inspires you. So, in honor of exciting themes, I felt inspired to inspire you with some GREY + AQUARIUM “SHARK” styled weddings!

This would be a pretty fun SAVE the DATE! Shark style! 😉 Giving your guests a hint of the fun to come!


Here’s a beautiful shark-grey invite


A ceremony in an aquarium…this looks kind of awesome and unique! LOVE this!


You can even have little shark flower petal decor in your accent floral color…it’s all in the details! 🙂


Love the grey + navy combo…it feels very sharkish! 🙂


Love this mixture of shark-like-greys for bridesmaids


How great is decor…love the branches and flow of the decorations! To make it more sea like…add in some sea glass, star fish, shells, could be simply AWESOME!


AND then set it  ^^^ all up in this location! AAAA-MAZING! I want to be there NOW!


To add a little flare to your bar setup in the above aquarium! You could do something with an old net and barrels like this! Would add to the theme for sure!


For a fun ocean like drink…choose something blue and refreshing like an aqua velva! Have you had one of these before?! If not…do it! 1oz vodka, 1oz gin, 1oz blue curacao, and sprite….it’s delightful! 🙂


Grey cake…ummm yes! AND how pretty is this thang?!


Or this one?!


For added entertainment…a shark ice sculpture or drink louge!


AND your guest will love this…it’s a fact!


Now get back to your shark week watching! Hope you enjoyed! Have a happy Friday all!


{ JUST MARRIED!!! 26 WAYS to DECORATE your Golf Carts, Bikes, and Automobiles }


Okay…so came across this ^^^ ABOVE photo and couldn’t help but laugh! These days it might be rare to jump in your own vehicle after your wedding and cruise to your honeymoon or even your reception for that matter. Most of us are jumping into limos, party buses, trolleys, etc. with our wedding parties! Regardless of what mode of transportation you jump on after you say I do…don’t forget to deck it out! It can be as simple as a sign, painted tin cans, or some balloons. The small touches remind you that the day is special and out of the norm, plus it’s just an old fashion tradition and you know yours truly might just love a tradition way too much for her own darn good! 🙂  SO…here are some cute ideas to deck your boat, carriage, golf cart, motorcycle, bicycle, bus, trolley…whatever the heck you’re riding! 🙂

Starting out with painting cans! how cute are these black and white ones!

{ 25 FIRST LOOKS that just might inspire YOU to do a FIRST LOOK }

First look photos! I think people may be bias one way or another…but regardless whether that first look be walking down the isle or a personal before ceremony moment; the faces and emotions during that FIRST LOOK can be sentimental and emotional moments in time that you’ll be so happy to have captured.

{ 13 Ways to Deck Your AISLES with AWESOMENESS }

I think when planning weddings we are so overwhelmed by the amount of “things” to decorate…ourselves, our wedding parties, our cakes, our reception halls, the cocktail hour. It’s CRAZY the amount of details that go into a wedding. However, our grand entrance and aisles to our ceremony occasionally get forgotten! Not today my friends, not today! Whether it be simple or elaborate, outdoors or indoors…you can make the framing of your ceremony AWESOME by even the most quaint details! Here’s to making these gosh darn aisles AWESOME! 🙂

Okay…I may be a tad bias to the rustic lifestyle, being a northerner. BUT how simple and beautiful are these bouquets that are certain to get noticed from their log side tables. LOVE!


We’re all about the ombre look these days, hair, clothes, etc. Why not ombre your aisle?! Must admit…a girl is loving it and the other simplistic decor to go along with it!


One thing to think about with aisles…is the vertical! Make sure your awesome decor is seen! These ceiling swags plus chandeliers bring this look to a whole new level!


Okay, so this tree is a masterpiece in itself! I love the floral arrangements before entering and the simple decor leading to that beaut of a tree!


Let’s just say…I wanna hang out here! Looks downright candle-lighty-dreamy! LOVE the laterns, tons of candles and white lights. Warms a girl right up!


Curtains + chandeliers + greenery…it’s like a secret garden aisle! Gorg!
