Lush Country Club Wedding in Green Bay

Get ready for some serious wedding envy, because this chic country club fête captured by Emily Katharine is next level good. Overflowing with lush florals from Buds ‘n Bloom and styled to perfection by Sash And Bow this gallery of images makes me want to squeal with delight. Gorgeous couple, gorgeous wedding, gorgeous gallery.


From Emily KatharineWords can’t express how perfect this wedding day was. I will admit, I was nervous for this one. I get nervous before every wedding, but for this wedding, I was a lot more nervous than usual. Part of it was the traveling and flight. Part of it was a new camera. Part of it was never having seen the venue before. Part of it was the ominous weather. And a big part of it was that this was one of my closest friend’s weddings.

We arrived at Kimberly’s parent’s home in the morning, and the first thing I noticed was how lush Wisconsin was. Everything seemed so alive and so green! It was so stunning! We watched the girls get their hair and makeup done. I loved how Kimberly wore a pair of mismatched plaid pajamas. She’s so down to earth. Her hair was curled and tousled. All of her bridesmaids (three of which were here sisters) had put on their taupe wrap dresses and helped Kimberly into her gorgeous lace dress.

Just ten minutes before the ceremony started, we hopped onto the bus and made our way to Holy Cross Parish. The service was filled with beautiful music and thoughtful remarks. One thing I wasn’t expecting was how much laughter there was! Father Marcos came all the way from Andres’s home state of New Mexico to deliver the service.

After the ceremony, the wedding group headed to Green Bay Country Club for the reception. The group let us borrow a zillion golf carts and the wedding party had a blast riding around on the course. Everything was lush. Everything was green. It was so organic and natural – I had to pinch myself!

We got back to the club house in time for cocktail hour. Guests were sipping on lavender cocktails and placing their thumbprints on Kimberly and Andres’s guest book.

As the guests made their way to the tent for dinner, I could hear the gasps. The reception was stunning. Three chandeliers hung from the tent – the center one emitting a warm glow from mason jars. The tables were lined with wine bottles and loose flowers. White rustic chairs welcomed guests to sit down at their place. To top it off, the tent smelled divine. I’ve never had a bride that focused so much on scents – the rosemary, the lavender, and the sweet sugar from the cupcake table. My heart was so full.

Dinner was delicious. The toasts were short and sweet (referencing Kimberly’s Disney Princess hair and Andres’s Crest smile – so true!). And all eyes moved to the dance floor for Andres and Kimberly’s first dance to ‘500 Miles.’

The rest of the night was a blur, between dances, toasts, cutting the cake (with a knife that snapped), polka dances, and laughter. Towards the end of the night, Kimberly and Andres played the “shoe game.” The DJ called out questions, such as “Who was the first to say ‘I love you’” or “Who is the better cook” and Kimberly and Andres would lift the corresponding shoe to represent their answer. I’ll just say that it was hilarious to watch them squirm, and the crowd go wild at the responses!

It was such a perfect day filled with romantic details and sweet moments cherished by all.

Green Bay, Wisconsin Wedding by Erin Jean Photography

Nothing screams sweet summer love like a Volkswagen bus and a glowing couple. We happen to adore this combination in all of its laid-back glory. Shot by Erin Jean Photography, this wedding is equal parts DIY (even the groom got involved in the crafting!) and lovely Wisconsin woodsiness. And the best part that is sure to make all of the grooms out there insanely envious – it was held at the Hinterland Brewery in Green Bay. Now that is casual elegance at its best. You can find more from this easy, breezy day in the gallery so get clicking.

Elizabeth and Jake had the most amazing wedding. It took place at intimate, upscale restaurant in Green Bay, Wisconsin called Hinterland. They choose it because of the decor but mostly for the wonderful food. Elizabeth and Jake did almost all the decor themselves. They really had a breathtaking, do it yourself, wedding! Jake cut birch trees from the woods and drilled holes for flowers and candles into hundreds and hundreds of them. They also gathered vintage spoons from antique stores. Bended, drilled and beaded each one to serve as a recipe card holder (name card) at the wedding. The details were everywhere!!! A family friend did the flowers and Elizabeth collected vintage pieces for a while and had them displayed all over.
