Along the lakefront of Wisconsin Point in Superior, imagine a dreamy walk down the “aisle” through soft sand and tall grass–an ideal, ultra-intimate elopement setting. And really, what’s more fitting for a beach wedding than a mermaid-style dress?

No detail is too small when it comes to your wedding. The place cards, of handmade cotton paper, are made in small batches by Fabulous Fancy Pants and hand-lettered by Made to Flourish Calligraphy for a romantic, seaside feel.


Couture Fleur arranged this bouquet featuring pink protea, peach ranunculus, blush roses, blue thistle, raspberries (yes, raspberries!), acacia greens and silver dollar eucalyptus. Look closely and you’ll spy crocheted ribbons in complementary aqua and peach hues.


No need for frosting on this naked cake–at least not when it’s topped with a luscious array of tropical fruit and flowers: mango, passion fruit, gooseberries, kiwi, raspberries and peach ranunculus. This mouth-watering creation was whipped up by Fancy Cakes by Staci of Chippewa Falls.


For this beachy, boho vibe, oversized braids drape over loose waves, while a floral belt of peach ranunculus, acacia greens, blue thistle, eucalyptus leaves and coral hypericum berries adds a whimsical pop of color to a classic white gown.


Guests get a glimpse of the festivities to come with this response card, part of a coordinating invitation suite. The raw edges and weathered, watercolor feel wink to a mysterious, message-in-a-bottle aura.


These place settings are almost too pretty to eat on. The cerulean blue and scalloped plate design complement the watery expanse, while sprigs of greenery and calligraphed place cards tie it all together.


This tablescape engages the senses with impeccable use of texture, aroma and color. A wood-pallet table is draped with silver dollar eucalyptus and acacia greens garland, while seashells and gold-glittered coral are tucked among peach roses, coral hypericum berries and blue thistle.


For him, nothing too fussy. A tweed coat over a fitted white button-up and suspenders make for a relaxed but pulled-together look. Top it off with a boutonniere, this one featuring ornamental raspberries and blue thistle.
