Susie and Johnny :: Stout Island Lodge wedding

We waited to take the lake ferry across the lake to the incredible and rustic Stout Island Lodge! :) I had been waiting to shoot a wedding here FOREVER because of the serenity and summer magic that gets displayed in photos that I had seen….and I was nothing sort of WOWed when we came into sight of the boathouse and property! :) The buildings are cabin-esque but very beautiful and full of lush greenery all over the property! It’s luxurious while being approachably “midwest” at the same time. Every guest at Johnny and Susie’s wedding felt the same; it was a weekend get-away that was full of adventure and relaxation and loads of love! :)

Susie’s day started as she got ready at one of the more “tucked away” cabins on the property, with an incredible view of the lake and the serenity that the calm water brought! She slipped her dress on, took a deep breath and walked through the gardens and past the rustic buildings to see her groom! :) It was practically magical! The ceremony and reception was the PERFECT summer event for guests…with the lake backdrop everyone enjoyed their meaningful vows, incredible cocktails, super yummy home-cooked Wisconsin fish and a dance party that reverberated through the woods on the island all night! :)

As we tooled away on the ferry boat back to our cars, we looked back at the moon-lit boathouse and listed for the party; and we just KNEW this was the PERFECT way to begin as husband and wife!!! :) YAY to Susie and Johnny! :)

And a HUGE shout out to Style Me Pretty for the gorgeous midwestern feature on their blog! See it live here! :)
