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 your cake, you could go for a rustic tree bark design!

For a softer feel, try opting for light pastel shades for bridesmaid dresses.

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!

{ EAT YOUR CAKE NAKED } ten pretty naked cakes

 

There’s A LOT of beautiful wedding cakes out there these days and the options seem endless to get delicious flavors as well as stunning visual cakes to top it off! Fondant covered cakes have made many bridal beauties elegant cake dreams come true, allowing sleek lines and details not able to be performed before the fondant hey day! However, as ALWAYS, just like I love myself many a fancy style white dress; I am a LOVER of all things cake as well! Butter cream covered, fluffily frosted, cupcakes pretties, cake pop cuties, fondant beauties, and NOW the trend of the NAKED CAKE! One thing I am definitive over is the importance of having a wedding cake. I heart traditions; they help signify special moments, so cut a cake gosh darnit and shove it OR nicely put it in each others’ cute faces and make that moment memorable! And, if you don’t…I’ll never know the difference so don’t worry about it! 🙂 Okay…now back to cake styles,  if you’re looking for cake ideas and want something new and different OR maybe just don’t love tons of frosting…here are ideas you’ll love! Like I said…eat your cake…NAKED!

{ Carnival Wedding Theme }

SO…I told you it was coming! After my balloon post from last week, I couldn’t help but be inspired by the above photo and get excited for the events during this time of year! THE FAIR IS COMING TO TOWN!!! Call me old fashioned, but I LOVE  me a good fair, or maybe I should say, the tradition of the fair. The ferris wheel, games, caramel apples, cotton candy;  now imagine all those timeless accents glamour-ized into a WEDDING! Sounds AMMMM-AZZING! Will somebody PLEASE plan this wedding and invite me already! Here’s a couple ideas on how your fair, circus, carnival style wedding can be UNIQUE, FUN, and FABULOUS all rolled into one.

Ladies and Gents you are invited! Love this wording for an invite:

adec4f0b100cd5ccf107747d2bf91c54

Love these color schemes, reds, with pastels, and patterns! FANTASTIC! Also, I can’t help but love the vintage feel this theme has to offer as well, the pinwheels, banners, and round bulb lighting you’ll see in photos to come. BUT for now check out the details in these pretty cakes:

Here comes the GLAMOUR-IZED PART! White lights, amazing colors, and unique table settings, and decor to pull it all together!

Do you feel inspired?! How about excited for the FAIR?!? I feel both! You could be the “Fairest of the Fair” if you choose to do this theme, and it won’t be able to help but be “The Big Show” of the year! Okay, I’ll stop already! BUT someone PLEASE plan this wedding or I’m going to have to talk to my husband about renting me a ferris wheel and getting married again, AGAIN! I’m sure he’ll go for that! 🙂 ANYHOW, HAPPY FAIR TIME ALL! Enjoy your corn dogs ladies and gents!

{ DOGS in WEDDINGS: Fun Ways to Include your Four-Legged Loves }

Dog

Okay, so anyone that knows me, knows I might have a slight obsession with my “fur-children”. I must admit, I’ve had floral arrangements and cupcakes made to look like my beloved fur-child, Chug, mostly as a joke, but, nonetheless a girl has done it! The truth is our pets have taken more of a staple in our lives than ever before and truly are considered family members. A lot of brides and grooms are trying to find unique and practical ideas to incorporate their four-legged family members in their special day. I definitely don’t suggest you do floral center pieces that resemble your dogs, cats, horses, etc., but to each their own; sometimes that stuff is downright hilarious! Anyhow, here are some fun, practical, and may I even say, CLASSY ideas to include your furry-family members and add a little more sweetness to your day!

How about a “getting ready” photo with your fur-family member, just in case they have to stay at home for the occasion. It’s like a dream of fancy and fluffiness!

94d988fced672c4b5ee3fdd9fe337a51

Tuxes and bowties on fur children, it’s like cuteness OVERLOAD! If you can’t find a website, there’s great makers of these adorable outfits on pinterest and etsy. Even if they’re used just for a flower or shoe photo opp, could there be any cuter props for accessories!

OR have you seen these floral collars to match your flowers, the sweetness is unbearable!

Now, if you have a well trained fur-family member and are doing an outdoor wedding, here’s some FAB fur-friendly ideas! Pretty floral leashes, and those cute kiddos once known as flower girls or ring bearers, new duty of adding SO much cuteness, we can hardly handle!

Okay and I must add! I’m loving the new trend of the big round balloons! So, here’s a fun idea that I can’t get enough of too! Balloons on a fur child!

cf393e8d0d8947c8d141eca77feedbe1

But maybe these balloons instead?! In your color scheme of course!

OR add the newest and cutest messenger for the, “Here Comes the Bride” sign!

e27658eb8733f64d00b33201b6f828c3

If your fur-family members aren’t wonderfully trained, you can still can get away with a great family photo like this:

Four words: CUTEST CAKE TOPPERS EVER! (These both can be found on Pinterest!)

f3f62b292f7e22b198f4c37d5b1be1ba

 

OR groom’s cakes are definitely a fun way to get away with adding a little crazy personality! Maybe we shouldn’t be so bias; let’s just call them “Personality Cakes”! It’s wild how crafty cakes have become in the last how many years, but what a perfect day to make a splurge and jump on the cake-fabulousity-wagon!

 

Okay, okay, to your pure devastation maybe it’s just inconceivable to have your dog’s presence at your wedding. Chin up friend! There’s always “Save the Dates”!

Hope you enjoyed you, fur-friend-lovers, you!

A New Years Gift of Visuelle Productions Bridal Shows

A New Years Gift of Visuelle Productions Bridal Shows.

This pretty much says it all…Happy New Year!!!!

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! 🙂

Wedding Noms (and by Noms, I do mean SWEETS!)

Hello blogging beauties!

Hoping all is well on this dreary Wednesday Wisconsin day. So I’ve been searching around, looking for inspiration for blogs, and I’ve come back to something I love. Food! Who doesn’t love food. It’s what sustains us and keeps us (ME) happy! Without food, well…we’d all be skeletons, and that just doesn’t seem fun. So today I thought I’d bring you some creative food ideas for weddings of all kinds.

Now depending on how rambunctious you are feeling the week before your wedding will determine if you really want to make these treats by yourself, or hire out all of your family and friends to help! (And by hire, I mean guilt them with your love into helping you create delicious memories!)  All joking aside, I’m sure someone out there would love to help!

For recipes go to my pinterest, and find these and more Noms under my Sweets and Noms board!

They can also be found on Visuelle Productions Pinterest board, Wedding: Deliciousness!

These delicious chocolate bowls would be a great started to have at any candy, fruit or ice cream bar, just make sure it’s a cool summers day so they aren’t melting all over! I really love how these are made with the balloons, so creative!

For instance, this fruit salsa would be an amazing addition to your chocolate bowls! Don’t you agree? The cinnamon chips are a nice touch though as well.

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes. Super simple and oh, so delicious!

These dehydrated strawberries would be a cute favor for any spring or summer wedding, and are just like candy, they are so addictive!

  1. Halve or quarter the strawberries, depending on their size; place on a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper;
  2. Dry in the oven for three hours at 100° C / 210° F.

Another thing that could be added to your “fruit bar” would be these simple fruit kabobs. Pretty self explanatory and a super sweet addition to any wedding food bar.

These next few items are something any wedding Can’t go without! Cake!! Yumm yum. This cake just has a slight spin on your more traditional wedding cake. These truffles are actually uncooked, eggless, cake batter balls. The balls are dipped in almond bark and topped with sprinkles. I seriously can not get enough of anything cake batter-y!!

These cake balls are actually cooked cake. I love the gorgeous red color of the red velvet, mixed with cream cheese frosting and dipped in chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate). This online recipe calls for a box cake, can of frosting and bark, I’d prefer to make the cake from scratch to really have control over it’s density and texture, but this is the much faster, more simple way. Both, tasty! Keep in mind there are tons of way to decorate cake balls, stick a lollipop stick in them and BAM! Cake pops! A hit at any wedding for sure.

For the super energetic bride out there, cupcakes are a delicious way to go, although I wouldn’t suggest you personally make these yourself for your special day, especially for a huge guest list!! They are still a great option for any wedding :)These lemon blueberry cupcakes would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding.  A super light fluffy flavor with the lemon and just the right amount of sweet with the blueberries, you can’t go wrong.

Something I’m sure the child in all of you will love, are these creative and cute popsicle ideas. Pretty easy, but make sure you have enough molds or cups for the amount of hungry guests you have. This is the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer’s day during an outdoor wedding.

This next one would be for the more health conscious bride because these are frozen yogurt pops with raspberries!

Like I said before, all of these recipes and the original blogs a lot of these came from can be found linked from my Pinterest, so make sure to check it out for some inspirational wedding food ideas! Now I’m hungry…off to find something tasty to snack on 😛

Happiest weekend to all!
