Wedding destination-Northwoods


Good morning WordPressians,

Today we are going to go to our own backyard in search of beautiful wedding inspirations. Many don’t realize it, but Wisconsin is the perfect destination wedding spot for those outdoorsy types and just for those who love beautiful views of lakes and landscapes!

A great place close to the Valley is the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh, WI. It’s so beautiful and the perfect place for any wedding!

Here is a great example of what could be done for the ceremony aisle. Somewhere with a wooded path this would be so gorgeous and just perfect for the fall season that is creeping up on us! The log benches are awesome as well, this is where it’s good to know someone who’s good with a saw 😉 Another great northwoods ceremony idea could be on a lake front. In this beautiful green pasture with the white flowers scattered across the aisle, it’s so beautiful, simple and elegant. Surely a classic.

And even though it may possibly rain somewhere out here in Wisconsin, don’t let it cancel your parade! Have some sort of back up, whether its an over hang for the ceremony and umbrellas for the guests or a cozy barn with cute hay bale seats.  And don’t take for granted mother natures decisions. Take it for the great photo opportunity it is! We all know life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain!

Here’s an adorable head table. Any type of fruit that matches your color scheme would be super cute as a center piece like these lemons. They are so simple and yet fit the theme perfectly!  Using space scraps of wood to makes signs  all over is perfect as well, or if you have the option available to you, large piece of bark that have fallen off or birch bark. 🙂

Here’s a great way to decorate for the reception. Outside with a touch of class by hanging the chandeliers and the long cozy tables. I love the wooden table numbers.

This is another option for decorating tables for the reception. Very outdoorsy but a little more fancy that the last style. It really depends on what look you are going for. I especially love the draping of the crystals here.

This is so cute for a card table and sign in table. Have the guests each write and individual mini letter to the couple! The use of the old dresser is cute and can easily be incorporated into your outdoor wedding 🙂

I really really love this cake! The lines are super simple but the texture creates depth and the flowers are perfect. Any outdoor wedding could use a cake like this! So chic! The wooden base is also another great touch, just remember to put some sort of sheet down to protect the cake or use a butcher block sealant to make the wood food safe!

For an outdoor wedding, the bride must keep in mind the weather when she’s having her hair done. This style show below may not hold up well on a particularly windy day but it’s oh so cute! And who said no one loves a little windblown natural look anyway 😛 The addition of flowers in the hair would be perfect for the woodsy wedding too!

As well as the hair this dress is perfect for a northwoods wedding, the lace is simple and traditional and the flowing lines of the bottom of the gown are perfect for a warm summer day.

This next dress would be a lot heavier than the first but is still awesome for a northwoods fall wedding. If it’s cooler outside it would be perfect to keep you from freezing. Although if its scorching you may pass out :/ Make sure to keep in mind location and weather when picking out yours and the parties dresses and clothing options. You don’t want anyone super uncomfortable. The happier everyone is the less problems that are likely to occur. Meaning less to stress about the day of!

This is such a chic way to incorporate the blue into your wedding. Of course adding it to your shoes has been really popular and this shiny flat option is great, especially if you’re getting married outside in the grass…where heels may create a problem with your stability 😛 And the bouquet, with it’s combination of real flowers to the cloth flowers in bright blue is adorable and just adds the right about of Pop!

Just for fun here are some gorgeous rings that any Wisconsin bride is sure to love. This one has a really antique feel, as if it were to have been passed on from generation to generation. So classic and beautiful.

This men’s ring is a lot more modern than the women’s, but still fits with the theme. Not as flashy as some rings and I really think a lot of northwoods grooms would like this.

Just because I can, I through this in here! This is a perfect example of why Wisconsin would be an amazing place for anyone outside of the state to consider it as a destination wedding location! Just look at those fields of cranberries! Gorgeous, although I’m not quite sure how she plans to keep that dress after this, but as far as any trash the dress shoots I’ve seen goes, this one takes the cake! You can’t get shots like this just anywhere 🙂 And I”m sure proud to say good ol’ Wisconsin is one of those places!

And as we part, here is a lovely shot of the couple going off to wherever life takes them. Or another option…a grand entrance into their ceremony. Either way, super cute and romantic. And perfect if you’re having your northwoods wedding on the river or lake front!

As you can see there are many wonderful options right out our backdoor! Why not take it for all it’s worth in it’s beauty! For more ideas and these pictures you can go to my Pinterest. Happy Wednesday to all! 🙂
