John and Ashley :: Door County Wedding!

A wedding full of fall-colors, great textures and the BEAUTIFUL scenery of the Horseshoe Bay beach club in Door County, WI! :) All inspired by old black-and-white Carry Grant movies…..tall candelabras, a lush wedding dress and a dapper groom in a black bow-tie! :) The vision that Ashley dreamed up was amazing! :)

The guests were greeted by the crashing waves of Lake Michigan and were wined and dined with amazing food, delicious macaroons and heart-felt toasts to the bride and groom! :) It was quite great that everyone around the over-sized square table-arrangement got a chance to toast the newlyweds! :)

Ashley and John ended the night with a BIG hand and surprised guests with a Trolly-ride through scenic parts of door county and ended with a stop at the famous WILSONS for a late-night ice cream snack (John’s fave family ice cream parlor)! :)

YAY! What a night of celebration and fun! :) Congrats you two! :)
