While there are so many elements that make Door County truly memorable and unique one that always stands out is the gorgeous sunsets along the bayside.

Rachel Pinkham of Pink Door Events

Inspired by the symphony of colors in a Door County sunset, Rachel Pinkham of Pink Door Events produced a design that encapsulated the beauty of a northern Wisconsin sky at day’s end. Joyful yet refined, these lively shades melded perfectly to create a romantic scene at The Hoop House at Twelve Eleven.

Bathed in the fleeting sunlight, the bride donned a series of captivating gowns sporting fanciful sleeves and graceful, cascading ruffles. Her hair in gentle waves and her lips a delicate rose, the bride’s quiet, romantic look was as soft as summer twilight. Details throughout the day also paid homage to the sunsets of Sister Bay, including a playful stationery suite in lavender and peach, and table settings in pale pink and gold. A flurry of florals in a stunning palette of sweet pinks, fiery oranges and dreamy purples was gathered in bouquets adorning the reception tables. The blond and dusty rose ceremony installation had pastel notes of dusk descending, and even the splattered-paint, four-tiered cake adhered to the theme by suggesting the sun sinking into the horizon.

This sunset color palette inspired the whimsical and playful nature for our theme  It was fun to incorporate the venue's industrial silver Hoop House with the soft yet perky vibes of the colors, gown and cake.
