Black tie with a glittery twist, this glammed-up fête from Kristina Lorraine lands in touchdown territory. You may recognize the tuxedo clad groom, Green Bay Packer’s player Brett Goode and groomsman Aaron Rogers, but all eyes were on his Amazing Race bride, Monica Cayce. Planned in less than a month (you read right!) every detail from the cocktail cruise to the lush Frontier Flowers of Fontana, make the gallery a truly perfect place to be.
From the beautiful Bride… I knew I had a huge task at hand when my fiance (Brett Goode, long snapper for the Green Bay Packers), and I decided to get married on his by-week, less than a month away from our engagement.
We chose the idyllic destination of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, about 2.5 hours away from Green Bay. I knew I would need quite a bit of help to pull this off, but I was up for the challenge. I enlisted the help of florist, and wedding genius, Renee Cerny of Frontier Flowers of Fontana. Using a mix of blush, sage green, metallics, soft neutrals, and modern and rustic elements, she tied in our Arkansas roots. There were also unique touches like chic antlers mixed in with hanging amaranths and lush flowers. It was also very important for me to incorporate a lot of rose gold elements to pay homage to my engagement ring.
We kept the wedding small and intimate, with only close friends and family being in attendance. Our ceremony was perched lake side in a gorgeous Sperry tent at Abbey Spring Yacht Club in Fontana. It was then transformed into the reception space, while the guests enjoyed a sunset cruise on a gorgeous, classic, steam yacht, from the Lake Geneva Cruise Line. We wanted our guests to have a fun getaway, and share in our love for one another and our friends and family.
