The sanctuary was decorated with fresh burgundy, white and pink flowers and greenery; a handmade welcome sign using a repurposed door; lanterns, pillar candles and white tulle bows. 

The bride proceeded down the aisle escorted by her father to an arrangement of “Great is Thy Faithfulness” by Joshua Schwenk, brother of the bride.

The bride wore an ivory, A-line-style lace princess gown that featured a scalloped lace trim, sweetheart neckline and chapel train from David’s Bridal in Chicago, Ill. Her veil was a two-sided handmade ivory tulle piece studded with pearls, previously worn by the bride’s aunt in her wedding. 

The bride carried a bouquet of burgundy, white and pale pink roses, dahlias, eucalyptus and greenery. A handkerchief made from the mother of the bride’s wedding gown was used to wrap the flowers together.

The matron of honor was Emily Brumbaugh, and bridesmaids were Melissa Escutia and Laura Hasse. The attendants wore floor-length gowns in steel blue from David’s Bridal that featured a variety of necklines and embellishments. They each carried a bouquet of burgundy, white and pale pink roses and dahlias that complimented the bride’s bouquet, wrapped in a navy blue ribbon.

A garden-themed reception was held at The Snow­flake Ice Rink in Land O’ Lakes. The ice rink was covered in flowers, twinkle lights and greenery. Family and church friends contributed to making do-it-yourself chalk signs, setting up topiaries and swag, and lining the space with rustic fencing. The wedding colors of steel blue, burgundy, white and pale pink accented the room. 

Guests feasted on a served buffet catered by Kickback Grill of Eagle River, accompanied by a two-tiered orange cake with chocolate ganache frosting and decorated with flowers, made by The Cake Lady of Eagle River. Carrot, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with frosting that matched the wedding colors were catered by Trig’s. Music and dancing followed. 

Everyone wore masks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the bride and groom. The breeze from the doors and windows and the spaced-out tables contributed to a relaxing atmosphere.
