Luxury and Ice Castles: A Modern and Sophisticated Winter Wedding

A team of talent from Wisconsin and Illinois came together to create a romantically icy inspired shoot.

For the past three years, it's been a tradition of Elyse Bullard of Elyse Bullard Photography, Jillian Niemann of The Treasury and Jillian Niemann Makeup & Hair, and Brittney Strathmann of Willow Design to come together and create fabulous wedding inspirations. This year, their wedding inspiration took place at both The Treasury in Delavan and the Ice Castles in Lake Geneva. Lake Geneva is the hometown of the trio, and they called their team from the shoot their "favorite local vendor friends" who hailed from Lake Geneva, Madison, Milwaukee, Janesville, Beloit, and Chicago. The team chose a soft and icy palette which fit with the desired mood of the shoot--soft, romantic winter glamour. Napkins by BBJ Linen with swirling marbling echoed the ice formations onsite at Ice Castles. Pink velvet table linens, also by BBJ Linen, matched The Treasury's Glam Lounge pink velvet chairs. The team filled the room with candles and pink and ivory blooms by Willow Design. Furthermore, floor to ceiling drapery, acrylic chuppah, and hanging crystal globe bulbs by Chance Productions added romantic touches. A delicious vanilla almond cake with vanilla bean frosting by Poppy Cakes Patisserie was designed with icy textured frosting and edible "ice" crystals. For her first full scale shoot after completing construction at The Treasury, Niemann aced, or "iced", it!
