Rita and Michael's Wedding

Big

We had an intimate outdoor wedding in rural Wisconsin. We wanted it to be relaxed and fun, and make a weekend out of it for those attending. We started with massages at Rita's mom's house for the bridesmaids and moms, then a grill out after the rehearsal. Wedding day started with a local brewery tour, then chill out, final set up, and the ceremony. We ended the evening with a bonfire. It was magical and the most fun we've had at a wedding!

Photographers

Only 1 photographer arrived instead of two due to an emergency. This was fine, though the photographer was not great at verbally balancing photos, didn't shift people over a few feet to get electric poles out of the background, etc. Luckily, friends stepped in to do this. I think if both photographers had been there, it would have been 5 stars. We giver them 4 stars because of the great value and gorgeous pics- they really did turn out lovely.

He did a beautiful job according to our guests. We really don't recall, which is a good thing. We requested light background acoustic guitar music. Not so much that it steals the show, but nice background music for an outdoor wedding. Perfect. And he had all the gear needed (and did amplify to be heard)

We wanted a small cake to cut, but had desserts and sheet cake for guests. It was exactly what we wanted, and the decorated it how we asked, no problem. Plus, it was only $15.

We got gorgeous bouquets from a flower vendor at the EC farmers market. I'm not sure of the vendors name, but she was VERY helpful and the flowers were perfect.

Ceremony Sites

This was a wonderful, relaxing place to have a weekend retreat wedding. 20 people stayed overnight the night before and night of wedding. No worries of driving home drunk. We had a bonfire at night,grilled out for the rehearsal, and the kitchen allowed us to bring in all the food we made ourselves. the apple orchard was beautiful though would be much more lovely in April or May with blossoms.
