Vintage décor with a modern, romantic vibe: flowing fabric and floral, vintage mirrors, tall candlesticks, antique frames, votive candles, succulents, and lots of greenery. What was your color palette? Romantic and elegant: plum, wisteria, lavender, and gray with touches of blushes, pinks, creams, and white. What was the significance of your wedding location? We envisioned an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour...

What was the significance of your wedding location? We chose our location because we now live in the La Crosse area and spend a lot of time around Riverside Park, at...

What was the inspiration for the look and feel of your wedding? We wanted to keep things simple and classy, but not too "plain." What was your color palette? Navy, plum, gold, and lots of pearl accents. Our birthdays are a day apart, and our birthstone is a pearl. My dress had pearl accents, and we incorporated pearls into a lot of the décor for this reason. What was the significance of your wedding location? La Crosse is in the middle of both our hometowns and...

What was the inspiration for the look and feel of your wedding? Simple and elegant, with a little sparkle. What was your color palette? Gold and blush pink. What was the significance of your wedding location and date? La Crosse is where we met and grew our relationship from the start. This area will always hold a special place in our lives as we grow in our marriage and grow our family. The date of July 29 was as close as we could get to our original anniversary date. What was...

Beth (Uhlenkamp) + Kyle Emanuel JULY 15, 2017 ©Copper and Coal Photography Kyle and I began exchanging looks during meetings at work, looks that later led to our first date in May 2015. Kyle was the ultimate gentleman, holding the doors open for me, taking us to a romantic dinner, and ensuring we got home safely, I knew he was a keeper! Speed up to November 2016; it was a chilly, rainy morning, and we had planned to hike at Quarry Hill, so we bundled up and made the best of it....

Katlynn (Hamilton) and Mitchel Larson June 3, 2017 ©Emily Jean Photography For many reasons, June 3 is a special day for Mitchel and me: He asked me “officially” to be his girlfriend; he got down on one knee on Grandad Bluff to propose; and we said “I do.” Our wedding day was such an exciting, emotional, and beautiful day! My bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law started the day at Metropolitan Salon and Day Spa. One of my best friends, Alex Mahairas,...

Rebekah (Dahl) + Ben Seinola May 13, 2017 ©Emily Schmidt Photo Ben and I have always enjoyed the outdoors. We spend much of our time hiking and biking many of the scenic areas. So it was fitting that Ben proposed on one of our hikes through Whitewater State Park. That morning as we were planning our hike, he insisted on taking the trail to Coyote Point. I wasn’t sold. This trail was a hard hike from the start, and we had just hiked it two weeks prior. I didn’t see...

Ashlee (Bryhn) & Andrew Stanke April 8, 2017 ©Endless Images Photography Our wedding day was (almost) what we imagined it to be! Before the ceremony began, a huge car accident happened outside of our venue. Andrew and his groomsmen were there, and one of them tore their pant leg running to help. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but what a way to get the adrenaline going, just an hour before our marriage vows. At the ceremony, we played a few hit pop songs so we could...

Christina (Meilander) & Scott Lambert April 6, 2017 ©Scott Bacon Photography Our love story began at the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival in a tiny Colorado town, located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. My son and I had just moved to town; we didn’t know anyone. Luckily, he recognized a boy from school, and they decided to play all day in the kid area. While watching the boys play, they ran over and were excited to introduce “Noah’s mom” to...

Courtney (Zeimet) & Joel Dahlby October 15, 2016 ©Emily Schmidt Photo After a three-year engagement, Joel and I were married at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Genoa, on Oct. 15, 2016. It was important for us to be married there, as that is the church my parents were married in and the one I grew up in. We did not have a traditional “wedding party.” Rather, we chose to honor our families by asking them to take part in the important parts of the Mass with us....

Erin (Bestrom) & Michael Buss October 8, 2016 ©Unique Touch Photography Lake Kabetogama, part of Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota, was the dream setting for our wedding. My family has had a cabin there for more than 30 years, and during six years of dating, Mike also fell in love with the area. Our wedding morning was a brisk 34 degrees with light snow falling. It gradually warmed up to the mid-40s, and it rained on and off all day until about 30 minutes before...

Abby (Ross) & Kyle Jumbeck September 9, 2016 ©Studio Bella Photography, Liz Hilton Our wedding day was every bit perfectly unplanned, even though I thought I planned it out perfectly. I woke up the morning of my wedding day to big, black clouds rolling in and thunder. After 10 minutes, it started to downpour and then came the hail. My husband-to-be sent me a text, quoting Alanis Morissette's song, “Ironic”: "It's like raaain on ‘our’...

Jenna (Cramer) & Vittorio Piantedos August 6, 2016 ©Tiffany Brubaker Photography Unlike most weddings, this was the second time we married each other. We met on vacation in the Mediterranean in 2012. Spending time together took some creativity, since I lived in Italy, Jenna in Ohio, and the Atlantic Ocean was in between us. Our solution to a long-distance, two-year relationship was a small courthouse wedding. Right after that, we started preparations for our real wedding...
