Tent Wedding

Real Wedding: Caryn & Leslie

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] This gorgeous tented wedding was set in the backyard of the Bride's parents home in the North Shore Chicago suburb, Glencoe. We transformed their already gorgeous and spacious backyard into a completely swoon-worthy ceremony and reception venue. The soft color palette that included unexpected pops of orange and the rustic touches created a sweet, rustic vibe. Each detail that was planned and coordinated by our very own, Renny Pedersen, had a purpose and place and was carried out with perfection. With threatening skies earlier in the day, we were glad we enlisted the help of the tent professionals, HDO Productions. Beneath the tent were flowers by a local flower shop in Glencoe, Front of the House band got everyone up on their feet that night and Tec Petaja was there to photograph the rain free fete!

Feature: Donley & Jeff

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

We are so thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty today! This wedding could not be any more gorgeous. With the beautiful backdrop of the Northwoods of Wisconsin, Donley and Jeff tied the knot at Donley's grandparent's home looking out onto Adler Lake. The wedding progressed through the connecting lakes for the rest of the evening with guests traveling by pontoon boats from place to place. Sigh From Katie Kozlowski: "Donley and Jeff met as swimmers at Emory University and began a 10-year path to their spectacular wedding weekend. With family and friends spanning the globe, they wanted to pick a wedding venue that was personal, meaningful and an opportunity for a reunion. It wasn’t long until they found the perfect spot: The Northwoods of Wisconsin. Donley’s family had gathered here for more than 60 years, on a picturesque beachfront on Adler Lake. Adler Lake connects to a chain of 10 lakes, which prompted the wedding to have a progressive theme… Donley and Jeff were married at Donley’s grandparents home, Deer Haven. A custom chuppah made of local Aspen saplings by the bride’s aunt and uncle and benches carved from local wood adorned the great lawn, overlooking the lake. After the “I Do’s” and a group champagne toast, dozens of pontoon boats pulled up to the ceremony site to transport guests to the next venue: Chippewa Resort, for cocktails. The new Mr. and Mrs. had a personal, vintage getaway boat to travel the Northwoods waters. Following an hour-long cocktail party, the pontoon fleets, freshly loaded with snacks, local beers and champagne, as well as fleece blankets, took guests back on the chain of lakes to the reception, held in a tent on the grounds of Camp Jorn. Countless DIY projects charmed the day, from the invitations and place cards (tiny canoes!) to lanterns and even the centerpieces. Guests dined on local fare, including cutie pies from a local bakery, danced to a popular Chicago DJ and drank in the stars in the spectacular Northwoods. When the tent party was done, guests moved to the Camp Jorn lodge for late night food from local-favorite Culver’s and dancing to a local band."
