Wisconsin Bride Fall/Winter 2022

Our brides take a moment before stepping into Frank Lloyd Wright’s Seth Peterson Cottage, nestled in Mirror Lake State Park. The soaring lines and cubist-influenced Wisconsin sandstone walls of Wright’s 880-square foot haven set off the opulent floral installation. Designed by Kase Styles, the arrangement features dried ferns, terracotta and blush roses, and cattail nesting daintily amid a lush bed of pampas grass — a graceful, organic frame for the couple in the woodland setting.

The clean, straightforward design of the invitation suite by La Crosse-based Saffron Avenue echoes Wright’s signature style, with a sly nod to the cottage’s dramatic roofline. Subdued colors drawn from the natural environs make a statement all their own.

Our team delighted in the opportunity to showcase the dazzling talent of local creators while also paying homage to the iconic Wisconsin creator, Frank Lloyd Wright. – Kasey Greenheck, Founder and Creative Director of Kase Styles

Handcrafted ceramic tableware and candlesticks by Bit of Earth Pottery Co. in Stevens Point fit the understated elegance of the wedding table. 

The gowns, by designer Alyssa Kristin, mirror Wright’s design aesthetic and reflect each bride’s personality. At left, Kish is in the “Natalie,” a study in elegant minimalism, with an edgy bouquet of preserved parchment fern, buff-colored Quicksand roses, tulips in a café au lait shade, and scabiosa pods. Jackie, right, wears the flowing “Sandra,” with a sweet bouquet featuring pale-peach anemone, amid white blossoms of ranunculus, strawflower and sweet pea. The bold jewelry designed by Madison-based Melissa Jenkins complement the gowns. 

Gluten-free ginger-peach cupcakes from The Main Grain Bakery in Stevens Point are a tasty choice for weddings of every size. Take a seat, admire the view and enjoy the ambience of this architectural gem. The cottage is available for rental through Sand County Service Co. (sandcounty.com).
