Hey there, Beautiful!

Isn’t our bride Paige so gorgeous??

We can’t get enough of her Stella York gown and accessories by Bel Aire, Susan G Allen Couture and Sara Gabriel! Those details, like the beaded lace and scalloped edges, are to die for!

Just look for yourself!

For her flowers, Paige worked with Forth Floral to create her stunning bouquets, boutonnieres and arrangements!

We are a HUGE fan of the color scheme…perfect for a June wedding!

Paige married her husband Garrett at Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.

With the lake {and one gorgeous arbor} as their background, the two were married surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Isn’t that just so beautiful?! We love the decor!

After the ceremony, guests headed to the resort’s restaurant for the reception.

Yard games were set up outside of the venue so the kiddos {and even adults!} could have some fun! Such a cute idea!

Another idea we love is using photos of the bride and groom at certain ages for the table numbers!

Paige and Garrett’s love story began when they met on Match.com.

They decided to meet at Applebees for their first date and quickly realized they were meant for each other.

When it was time to move to the next step, Garrett had an idea for the perfect proposal…

“I was working at a greenhouse and Garrett contacted my boss. My boss told me I could go home early. When I went to my car I saw an envelope on my windshield. It of course was from Garrett and told me I should go home, shower, and get dressed in whatever I wanted. It also had a quality he loved about me. When I got home I had another letter waiting for me on my bed with another quality he loved about me. I followed the letters which led me to my friend’s house. She drove me to the botanic gardens where Garrett proposed. I had 12 letters throughout the whole day which told me where to go next, while having a quality that he loved about me too."  

We love this!! Was it a surprise??

“I knew he was going to propose but I didn’t know when. We designed my ring together so I knew it was coming soon. Once I got the first letter I knew what it was though!”

After the ring it’s time for the dress! I asked Paige to tell me all about her dress buying experience!

“I loved buying my dress. I had my mom, mother in law, grandma and three of my friends come. I loved that we were able to look through the dresses and pin which ones we liked. I ended up picking the dress my mom and maid of honor pinned."

How did she know her dress was "the one"?

“I thought it made me look the best and when I walked out all my friends and family loved it as well.”

What was Paige’s favorite part of planning her special day?

“My favorite part was to coordinate my dress with the bridesmaids, flower girl and groomsmen etc. And picking the jewelry and shoes out.”

What part of planning was she not a big fan of?

“Making and staying in the budget."

Tell us about it! When the wedding day finally arrived Paige’s favorite moment happened during the ceremony…

“My favorite part was when Garrett and I walked to the end of the Pier and tied our unity cord together.”

Now that the wedding is over, what is Paige’s biggest takeaway from the entire process?

“I would say just enjoy it, it goes by so fast. Make it a fun experience invite friends and family to come help plan and make decorations. It great bonding time and made great memories. Also helps that multiple people know what’s going on the day of the wedding too.”

Any final advice?

“Don’t focus on the day, focus on the life your creating together. Make the day special but do things that will bring you closer not further apart. Don’t fight about things, make dates out of planning and make sure you both have the important element you each want at your wedding."

Yaasss we love that! Thank you so much, Paige and Garrett, for letting us show off your beautiful wedding!
