From a lineup of blush, wine, and ivory-hued bridesmaid dresses from Vera's House of Bridals, a gown from Moments to Cherish with a gorgeous long lace train and one stunning pair of Christian Louboutin heels, this classic Wisconsin wedding at Lake Windsor Country Club is dripping in romance and style. Not to mention the most elegant ceremony entrance frame and a swing created by the bride's mother and a friend cascading with luxe blooms and draping, all captured by Studio 220 Photography.
WEDDING DATE: 07/22/2017
HOW DID YOU MEET? Match.com. He was the only guy I ever messaged first! I just knew he was gonna be a good one.
HOW DID YOU KNOW HE WAS "THE ONE"? When he made me feel good about myself and trust love again.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: Perfection. We went to New York City for my 29th birthday with a few friends. I've been dying to go my whole life so I was extremely excited to finally be going! On our first day (after a canceled flight), we were standing under the Brooklyn Bridge with the Manhattan skyline behind us. We walked by a violinist strolling along and he stopped by her, got to his knee and asked me to marry him. I was shocked that he hired a violinist and even had my friend taking pictures on our fancy camera. It was the best!
WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING COLOR PALETTE? Blush, wine, gold, champagne, ivory and gray.
DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: An elegant bundle of ivory and blush roses, burgundy dahlias, and pops of leafy, gray dusty miller. It was so classic and beautiful.
WERE THERE ANY PERSONAL TOUCHES OR DIY ELEMENTS? My grandmother passed away when I was young but she was a huge part of my life growing up. When she passed away, she left me her wedding rings. They were sewn into my dress as my something old. My crafty mother made a "memorial swing" out of a tire swing I used to swing on at my grandmother's house. She made it fabulous with soft fabrics and pretty cascading flowers. It was a huge hit not only for the sentimental reasons but for how beautiful it was.
My beautiful frame for the top of the aisle was an idea I saw on Pinterest. I had a friend build the frame and my mother decorated it with the draping fabric and floral. It was an absolute showstopper!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR DRESS: Kittychen - style, "Candice" with an open back, all lace, a little blind, and a train a mile long.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT FROM YOUR WEDDING? Getting lost in our first dance. The room disappeared and it was just us two dancing to our song.
