Judy and Patrick hosted a joyful day on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Woodland Backyard Wedding in New Berlin
After meeting in high school, Annice and Eric dreamed of a whimsical wedding on the bride's family property. The day was filled with both rustic and elegant touches with pops of gold, creative signage and wooden chairs for the ceremony. The bride's mother surprised her with a horse-drawn carriage to bring her to the ceremony. The couple's 9-month-old daughter, Nora, was pulled in a wagon down the aisle by the groom's brother. To end the ceremony, Annice and Eric rang the bell in front of the house before guests were handed glasses of champagne and escorted to the horse corral for a cocktail hour. A lavish dinner was held in a large tent on the property before dancing commenced in the pole barn. Guests enjoyed cigars near the whiskey and beer bar that highlighted rustic barn elements. As evening fell, everyone gathered to light Chinese lanterns and send them off into the sky.
