Becca & Ben

Sept. 18th, 2010 at a private residence in Waukesha

Though the grey skies on Becca Schuett and Ben Smaglick’s wedding day seemed foreboding, the skies opened up in time for the couple to exchange vows without the shelter of a tent. For the elegant celebration Becca’s aunt and uncle offered their rolling farmland—pond and weeping willow included. Not only did family offer their land, but hours of helps as well: Becca’s aunt and cousin hand made yard signs from old barn wood and others pitched in with flower arrangements and décor. The rustic atmosphere continued with caramel apple favors, flowers from the farmers’ market and a European buffet with food stations, allowing guests to mingle and graze.
