If you’ve ever been to Door County, Wisconsin, you have more than likely fallen in love with art, simplicity, quaint little harbor towns and the most beautiful State Parks around. Everything about Door County it just as Taylor and Ryan envisioned their wedding. Being from Illinois and knowing how magical Door County was for them a destination wedding weekend was planned. They wanted their gathering of friends and family not only to celebrate but to take the time to reconnect as couples and families during their getaway. How truly thoughtful is that?
Taylor and Ryan’s desire for the outdoors to be interwoven in the day was perfectly matched with the enchanting grounds surrounding one of Door County’s finest art galleries, Woodwalk Gallery. They envisioned their union and celebration unfolding the first time they visited the Gallery because it truly was a perfect match for an easy going and romantic affair!
Taylor and Ryan, thank you for being the peaceful lovely couple you are. You made us feel like family and we’re honored to have captured this beautiful collection of memories for you.
Taylor and Ryan chose not to see each other before the wedding but loved the idea of its tender moments. Having such a close relationship with her Father, Taylor chose to do a First Look with him.
Being in the purest of surroundings God has given us, Taylor and Ryan chose to seal their union by making an addition to the surrounding beauty by planting a tree.
Brides, no worries should the skies open up on your wedding day. There may be a little gift waiting at the end.
I LOVE that Taylor truly included her besties to be beside her on a wedding day. Why oh why must there be equals to both sides… no reason. Doug stood up on Taylor’s side because that’s the only way Taylor would have wanted it. A wedding day is about you, not five girls and five guys. You and your closest friends by your side to support and witness you living your life.
Gentlemen, well done. You’re all so very handsome!
The Wedding Party. I just love the mix of colors, tones and texture. I secretly wish all weddings broke out of the norm and truly dressed like they could wear the outfits again.
Off for a few lovely photos with Taylor and Ryan.
Ugh… tent weddings with unique found decor and place settings will always steal our hearts.
Taylor and Ryan’s amazing tent decor was a perfect tie-in to the colorful additions they had throughout their day. From sparkled wedding shoes and confetti cake to THIS it all came together perfectly!
Some of you already know our wedding team and know that we’re in it for the cake! Imagine the look on our faces when we approached this little delightful feast!
Taylor and Ryan had put together a little make-your-own-trail-mix buffet for he late night snackers and the not-so-sweet-tooth. Such an easy and natural touch for their guests!
Taylor & Ryan’s wedding was a collection of art created by the following artists:
Dress :: Paloma Blanca
Paper Goods :: Lindsay Letters
Floral :: Flora
Cater :: Mojo Rosa
Desserts and Delights :: Pink Bakery
Music :: Kimbra Wilson Trio
One of the little touches that usually goes unnoticed on a wedding day is the Groom’s shoes. We. Love. Shoes! They’re that final accessory that can add so much to an outfit. Ryan and all your guys… job well done. Your shoes rocked and we certainly took note!
If you’re planning a wedding in Wisconsin or surrounding states but long for a destination wedding we urge you to take an afternoon drive up to the peninsula of Wisconsin, affectionately called Door County or the Door Penninsula. Filled with enchanting forests, art galleries, quaint little boutiques and candy shops and I do believe an ice cream joint in every town, you will surely fall in love. The unique shorelines are home to one of only a few shingle beaches in the world and make for beautiful photos might I add. Check it out!
