And who could say no to this adorable gelato cart? If you’re thinking of having an Italian inspired wedding, take a look at these photos for inspiration!
Winter is said to be the most romantic season of the year, so many couples choose to say their “I do’s” while there is a beautiful blanket of snow on the ground. From wintery greens to bold red florals, little details can create a big statement to create the perfect winter wedding.
Tweed suits and long-sleeved wedding dresses can add an element of romance and coziness to complement the theme of your big day and are great for taking those breathtaking photos out in the snow. We gathered a few of our favorite inspiration photos, so take a look for ideas for your winter ceremony!
Amanda and Andy had a weekend full of celebrating their big day! The couple started it off with a welcome reception the night before the wedding at The Reserve Ballroom in Neenah, WI. Guests enjoyed catering by Lombardino’s restaurant of Madison for the rehearsal dinner, which was followed by drinks and appetizers joined by out of town guests!
The beautiful couple were married at the groom’s family residence on the lake, and the couple was able to prepare for the big day in the home. As guests arrived on this beautiful day they were greeted by a cellist before they hopped aboard a trolley to take them down the road to the ceremony. Guests were then greeted with champagne and French horns which played throughout the ceremony, which was embellished with florals of Garden Laurels by Donna Sager out of the Madison area. Take a look at these photos from their unforgettable celebration!

Fresh flowers bring life to every wedding! Take your wedding to the next level by creatively incorporating florals into your big day. Here are some more unique ideas to get you started!
Create a beautiful floral background to set the stage for your ceremony and/or to provide a fun photo opportunity for your guests! For a looser look, try stringing flowers to fishing line.
Floral Wedding Cakes:
If you’re looking to turn heads when it comes to your wedding cake, look no further! Using flowers is an easy way to make your cake stand out. With so many different floral options, this idea can easily be applied to match any wedding style.
Construct a floral arch to provide the perfect setting to say your “I Do’s.” Make sure to choose flowers that will hold their shape well and don’t lose their petals easily. Carnations are a great option!
We are so excited to have an inspiring new venue in the area. Nestled in the heart of downtown Stoughton, WI The Lageret is a vast, historical and industrial warehouse with enough room to host a separate ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.
The 18,000 sq. ft newly renovated tobacco warehouse is on our short list for popular venues this upcoming season. Using a warehouse as a wedding venue ties in the popular elements of a barn wedding with modern comforts and amenities. The venue has two floors of functioning space with enough room to comfortably fit 240 people.
Owner Jame Ramsden is no stranger to the wedding business. She has run Flora Designs by Jamae for over 17 years, and is excited to start this new venture! The venue has already been featured on websites such as Style Me pretty and the Knot, and Jamae assured us that the inquiries are flying in! For more information on hosting your wedding or event at The Lageret, please contact Jame Ramsden, owner, at 608.921.6400 or http://www.thelageret.com/warehouse/.
Proving these stubborn fall wedding myths wrong is the perfect way to show off your personal style, and to incorporate this amazing fall weather!
You must hold your Wedding Inside
If you think that you can’t have your dream outdoor wedding and fall date coexist, think again. By incorporating pashmina-style wraps as favors, fire pits, and strategically placed heat lamps you can hold your ceremony, cocktail hour, and maybe even reception outdoors. With the unpredictable fall weather, especially in Wisconsin, it would be smart to have an indoor option for your guests. Finally, suggest to bring jackets or wraps in your invitations or on your personalized website in case it ends up being unseasonably cold on your special day.
You must incorporate Pumpkins into your décor
Pumpkin can be a festive treat to add to your dessert table, but don’t feel the need to incorporate it into your décor. To express the fall season in a pumpkin free way, try incorporating fruits like pears, apples, figs and pomegranates instead. Another popular trend is incorporating leaves, grains, and wood elements that reflect the season in a more subtle way
