{ Christmas Wedding }


Is there a more magical time of the year than Christmas?! I truly LOVE LOVE and LOVE EVERYTHING about this time of year! It really is the “most wonderful time of the year” …so why not add to the celebrating with a “Christmas Wedding”?! I’m not going to lie, I may be vicariously living through this blog and wishing I had planned my own Christmas wedding…however…I think that is where a lot of my blog idears come from! So, if you do a Christmas wedding, invite me darnit; so I can vicariously live through you! Now, back to talking about me! 🙂 If I had a Christmas wedding; this is just what I would do…

I love these faux wood and snowflake invites!


This time of year, most churches are decorated BEAUTIFULLY with trees and pointsettias, so decorating has just gotten easier! Now, if you were me…we would take all our pictures before and have a ceremony when it’s dark (which is 4:00 these days) when all the trees and candlelight can perfectly glow for that warm, romantic, and magical look we’re going for! Love the added garlands in lanterns in these two photos!



For previously stated before ceremony photo opps! We would find the most fantastically decorated architecture!


And of course have one of these moments!


Wear red shoes that almost look like a present!


Plus, I need this fur…just in case… 🙂


What better reason for a statement red lip and nail…


I somewhat in LOVE with this evergreen bouquet, plus I love the smell of a Christmas tree! Maybe I’d add a little red sprigs for Christmas sake!


Since it’s Christmas, we all need a little more sparkle…I think the bridesmaids would love us FOREVER if they got to wear something FAB like this with their awesome EVERGREEN!


My flower girls “Extra Sparkle”…maybe gets to carry a cute little Christmas wreath?!


With the perfect Christmas pillow for our ring bearers…


Plaid Christmas tie! Yes, Yes, and YES!


After this GORG ceremony…we should probably take a carriage ride with champagne to the reception hall..


Where it would be ALL lit up with SOO MANY CHRISTMAS lights you can hardly believe your pretty little eyes!


Plus TONS of mistletoe! I actually think that might have to be the game to get us to kiss! You kiss under the mistletoe and we’ll kiss like you kiss…eeeehhhhh…ehhhh?!?


Greenery draped across tables…with candlelight of course!


Kind of love this look…plus I think it would smell AMAZING!


Our guests could sign ornaments for our Christmas tree instead of a guest book! How special would those be to read every year while decorating!


Warm cocktails…mmmmmmm…


A simple cake decorated with greenery!


Plus RED VELVET cupcakes…because they’re a family fave AND THEY’RE RED!


Plus, I think we’d also need a surprise visit from the big man in red for the awesomest photo booth guest photos EVAhhhh!


Now get planning your Christmas wedding so I CAN come!!! I promise I’ll be good, I won’t cry, I won’t pout! HEHE! Besides all that…sending you all the warmest wishes from mine to yours! MERRY CHRISTMAS!


{ Alternative Wedding Cakes }


Changing up the old fashion wedding cake is a fun way to add a personal touch to your day, recently we did a blog on the trend of “naked cakes”, which are SO pretty and an alternative cake idea, but here are some different ideas to change up your fancy wedding dessert + some people just plain old don’t like cake…WHHHAAAAA?! Yeah, but it happens! So, if for some reason you don’t like cake OR you don’t like frosting OR you just would like to add a personal touch to your wedding treat; here are some great ideas to make your “cake” unforgettable!

Okay…maybe this is still somewhat a cake…but it’s still not something you see everyday..A SMORE WEDDING cake with toasted meringue! Uhhh YUM!


Being a true WISCONSINITE (GO PACK!) and cheese LOVER,  I must say; I do love this idea! Wheels of cheese set perfectly set as a beautiful faux “cake”.


Another view with a cake made of cheese wheels! Aren’t they pretty!


How pretty is this beautifully iced layered bunt cake?! ADORABLE and looks delish!


A layered crepe cake! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this looks + love me some crepes!


Macaroons are officially on trend and how couldn’t they be…they’re cute, feel fancy, and to top it off…they’re delicious! Here’s a couple AWESOME macaroon stacked cakes.



Gourmet popsicles! Now that is memorable and looks tasty! Plus, food on sticks when you’re busy dancing is super efficient… 🙂


Beacause who doesn’t LOVE rice crispy treats?! AND this is ADORABLE!


This is not a cake! Well it is a cake made out of sugar cookies and it’s the CUTEST thing I’ve ever seen! What guest wouldn’t ❤ their own personal cookie wedding cake?!


One word. TRUFFLES.


How to make OREOS look fancy?! Make a “cake” out of them! My husband would think this was heaven…but make sure they’re double stuffed! ; )


Or how about a cannoli cake?!


Yep, someone has done it! This is a JELLO “cake”!


Cake pops! Isn’t this pretty?! And as previously mentioned…food on sticks is just more efficient while dancing!



Cheese cake bites…YES!


Isn’t this fun and pretty?! It’s cake…but you don’t see a wedding cake like this often… 🙂


Chocolate covered strawberries! What a centerpiece!


Donut cake?! I happen to just LOVE this idea!


Dark chocolate + berries = DELIGHTFUL + antioxidants! WIN WIN!


This is a chocolate chip cookie cake…because who doesn’t LOVE chocolate chip cookies?!


OR this…


OR this…


This is called croquembouche and it’s a traditional French wedding cake! Unique and pretty!


Chocolate mousse shooters displayed beautifully!


Cake jars…these could look pretty amazing stacked in the shape of a traditional wedding cake?! Plus, you know what’s AWESOME…?!?…when you get home from a party late at night and REMEMBER you have cake in your PURSE!


Okay, that is the alternative wedding inspiration for your Friday! Are you feeling alternative?! It’s fun to be unique! It’s fun to be traditional! Heck, it’s fun to be whatever you are! Roll with it! Happy Friday Friends!

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.

Puppy love.







Music sweetness.

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

{ 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!
