How Sweet It Is: Classic Summer Wedding Inspiration

To set the scene for a majestic affair, choose a classic landscape that highlights whimsical details.
From: Spring/Summer 2016 edition

Such grandeur! Lush lawns in the midst of a sweet summer, like these at Lake Geneva’s historic Black Point Estate, make for the ultimate backdrop for an ultra-romantic wedding day.


Who says the bride gets to indulge in all of the wedding fashion fun? Encourage your groom to choose a boutonniere full of personality, such as these sunshine-soaked spray roses.

Your big day will speed past you in a flurry of excitement; this we know. Be sure to sneak away for a moment alone with your new spouse—a scenic boat tour on a Lake Geneva Cruise Line yacht makes for the perfect mini getaway.

Go ahead, buck tradition. A closer look at this “cake” reveals, to the delight of every Wisconsinite, that it’s actually made of cheese wheels. Keep the accoutrements simple—sprigs of greenery and the freshest of fruits, for example.

A nod to the State Fair’s dessert of choice, these mini cream puffs from Lakeland Bakery will delight guests of all ages. Mint-hued milk glass and a spray of romantic blooms complete the sweet tablescape.

What’s more appropriate for a Wisconsin wedding than a cheese platter? For the perfect pairings, vary milk type, texture and flavor: Think soft with firm, aged with blue, funky with familiar. Don’t let the cheese stand alone, either. Select a few accompaniments such as almonds, salami, honey and artisan crackers to take your board to the next delicious level.

Soft, subtle and stunning, this cascading bouquet, overflowing with English garden roses, lily of the valley, Gloriosa lilies and French tulips, showcases the prettily pale palette of spring.
