Talia and Ryley :: the barn at harvest moon pond

The wind blowing through the willow tress, the soft pink dresses, and a little girl in a soft-puffy dress….I mean, doesn’t it sounds like a dreamy, outdoor, Wisconsin wedding? :) Well, it sure was!

Talia’s soft and seamless style came through with the wedding of her dreams as she married the guy of her dreams at the Barn at Harvest moon pond. Guests were greeted with pink punch and popcorn as they arrived to the ceremony, gabbed outside under the summer sun and then enjoyed some romantic dancing under the barn lit ambiance for the rest of the night. The day was soft and stylish and so beautiful! :)

Wedding days like this make me so excited that summer is on the brink and the bright, shining, summer sun will soon be returning! :)

Sara and Nick | Minocqua Wisconsin wedding

A classic wedding under the stars in the north woods of Wisconsin; Minocqua to be exact! :) I mean, it was mere PERFECTION! :) Sara and Nick planned a weekend away for guests to a weekend to rest, relax and party with friends and family. Everything was planned within miles of Nick’s family lake-home which brought to life all of their favorite adventures of Northern Wisconsin! :)

After the traditional, Catholic mass filled with rich-family traditionalĀ and beautifully spoken vows, guests were treated to a school-bus ride (a nod to the couples high school romance) that brought them to the STUNNING reception site complete with a gorgeous lake view and custom picnic tables while sipping Wisconsin’s best brandy-old-fashioneds! :) Everyone was wined-and-dined with a yummy dinner that highlighted Wisconsin’s best summer produce and danced under the glow of the stars that could be seen from under the clear-reception tent! :) The tall-pines were filled with the noise of laughter and new memories being made as we drove away from the glowing-tent by the lake….it was a perfect weekend!! :)

AND a giant HOORAY, YAY and THANK YOU to Martha Stewart weddings for featuring Nick and Sara’s wedding on their site! :) A gigantic honor for both Sara + Nick, all the other vendors and I! :) YAY! :)

THE KNOT THE KNOT THE KNOT (and Martha)! WOAH!

Over the past few weeks, I keep finding myself in the same place of gratitude over and over….not just the “THANK YOU” kind of gratitude, but the oh-my-goodness, woah, dance my socks off with a margarita in hand and look at my husband with a GIANT smile kind of gratitude. The kind of gratitude that comes despite my undeserved feelings. The kind thatĀ stops me in my tracks and it’s the kind that forces me to look around feeling SUPER loved! :) That kind. I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve such excitement in my life…but the reality is that this excitement isn’t deserved, it’s merely gifted! :)

So, cheers to an awesome month of features and cheers to a great 2015 ahead! :) This year began with THREE (ahem….three) features in different KNOT magazines nationwide (talk about taking my breath away). Joel and Allie are featured in the KNOT Minnesota, Casi and Ben are featured in the KNOT New york and Elena and Matt are featured in the KNOT Missouri/Kansas! I mean, WOAH!!!!! SO if you’re in any of those three areas, look for them on shelves this entire spring/summer! :)

AND, December blew my socks off even more with a feature on Martha Stewart’s website.
DREAM COME TRUE! :) Sara and Nick’s incredible north woods Wisconsin wedding was featured on her site, and it was a day of dance parties around our house when I saw those images live on her website, Twitter and Instagram feed! :) WOAH! WOAH! WOAH! :)

I am choosing to embrace this excitement with both hands as I virtually hug all of you…my brides, encouragers and cheerleaders! :) It’s incredible how much life there is to be celebrated when I’m surrounded with a great community (you!) as I leap for new heights and stretch my business into new adventures! :)

WOAH! What a start to 2015! :)
