Chic Countryside Glamour

We're going ga-ga over Ali and Jason's upscale glamorous event, photographed by Emily Steffen. Who knew that a childhood backyard--formerly synonmous with grilling, star gazing, and hide-and-seek--could transform into such a luxe location for a vintage-inspired wedding? The outdoor ceremony was accented with delicate hues, while the voluminous tulle of the bride's veil and the flower girls' dresses would make any girly girl ticked pink. The reception following was held in a breathtaking high-ceiling tent complete with crystal chandeliers and antique details. Pale pink roses peppered the place settings, and floral arrangements with feminine touches were perched on high as centerpieces for this grand affair. Guests had their choice of sweet treats, including the traditional wedding cake, cream pies, cookies, and our new favorite, doughnuts! Congrats to Ali and Jason on their glamorously gorgeous event!

From the photographer:

Her vision of glamorous backyard day was just flawless! His eyes started to get misty as he saw her walking out the backdoor of her childhood home toward him at the end of the aisle. She was dressed in one of the most flowy and gorgeous dresses he (and I) had ever see; it was as if she was walking on a cloud as she kept taking steps toward him! They exchanged their vows in front of their family and friends, shed many happy tears and were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Guests were then escorted into an incredible tent filled with pinks and whites and silver metals, as well as to the smell of sweet treats from the dessert table and the amazing roses that were at each place setting. Barn wood tables married with silver chavari chairs and glamorous chandeliers were a wonderful vision of the rustic glamor that Ali had been dreaming about! 

Ali and Jason are loved, and you couldn’t help but see it as you walked that day! And as we drove away from the amazing party, we saw glow of the tent lights and the roar of the party for miles into the Wisconsin countryside! It surely was an incredible day.
