Emily and Alexander did the most with minimalism at their modern micro-wedding. The couple traveled back to Emily’s hometown of La Crosse to pull off their sleek, intimate affair, which was held in an abbreviated fashion as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Not wanting to wait to say “I do,” the couple gathered their closest friends and family at The Greenhouse at Bittersweet to tie the knot. A simple palette of black, white and grey was accented by similarly achromatic plaids while bright greens made intermittent appearances to bring a dose of color. The greenhouse lent an otherworldly aura to the winter wedding as the snowy landscape was on full display through the translucent structure. Emily embraced her inner snow queen with a shimmering tiara and long-sleeved, bead-accented gown from Ivory Rose Bridal Boutique while a loose updo by Brittany Stammer of Studio R provided an effortless accent. Bittersweet Flower Market’s arrangements highlighted greenery with pops of white roses and anemones, whose stark black centers tied into the overall design. Guests were treated to a three-course meal complemented by mulled wine from Emily’s father’s private collection and a show-stopping chocolate and strawberry cake courtesy of Roxy’s Sugar Shack.
