Laura + Will met through the “Coffee Meets Bagel” app [how cool is that!] and felt an instant connection. Their love for one another grew quickly, and then Will popped the question – and that meant it was time to plan the big day! Lead planner Kellie met with Laura and her mom, Sue, throughout the planning process and loved talking with these two ladies about their wedding ideas.
Their wedding took place at Kamp Kenwood – a gorgeous outdoor rustic venue located in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. It featured a S T U N N I N G lakeside ceremony site, and large dining area for the reception. Since the couple met via Coffee Meets Bagel, the company contributed money to their wedding, which bought adorable camp cups as guest favors! One [of many] unique touches the couple added to their day was a directional sign that featured locations of where guests had traveled from to get to the wedding [we loved this idea]. The couple also honored past family members by displaying photos and special items on top a vintage upright piano. The couple also used a canoe to house beer & soda for the guests [how fitting with the camp theme]!
The ladies got ready for the day with the ever so talented Luminous Beauty Studios doing their hair and makeup, and the guys prepped in their separate cabin. The couple did a sweet first look in the woods, with Abbots Lane Photography, these pictures are P E R F E C T! After the first look and a few wedding party/family photos, it was time for the ceremony. Laura + Will tied the knot [literally] during their unity symbol that featured tying two cords together and included their parents. After the ceremony, the wedding party and family enjoyed a champagne toast and passed apps during cocktail hour. Yard games were played by all and included kube, bags and spike ball.
The reception was hosted in the dining hall. Table decor consisted of butcher paper, table numbers that were pictures of different countries the couple had traveled, tea lights, coffee mugs, and copper containers with flowers and greenery spread throughout the room. The wedding party did their grand entrance to “Space Jam” – so fun! Dinner was buffet style and catered by Yankee Jacks Premiere Catering which was delicious. Desserts were home made by family and friends, served on mismatched vintage plates [SO sweet]. Instant Request DJ started pumping the tunes and the rest of the night was spent dancing and laughing with the newlyweds.
Laura + Will – we absolutely A D O R E your love story + planning your wedding day was so much fun! We hope that married love is amazing and can’t wait to see your love grow in the years to come. Shout out to the amazingly talented Abbots Lane Photography for the photos featured in this blog!
