Oh my stars, today’s Wisconsin rehearsal dinner brings us pure joy! Cozy vibes + comfort food were the name of the game for Callie and Crosby’s pre-wedding fete, and we are totally inspired by the black + white gingham patterns throughout. Clear bud vases, round wooden chargers and kerosine lamps decorated the family style tables while antler chandeliers gave dimension to the clear tent overhead. But perhaps the best part about this rancher style rehearsal dinner is the relaxed + blissful atmosphere you get through backyard BBQ’s with your closest friends and family. These images from Jaimee Morse Photography will have you drawing up some plans for the party before the party – trust us!
From the photographer, Jaimee Morse Photography: A groom’s dinner fit for a rancher! Callie and Crosby’s destination wedding and groom’s dinner was held on Madeline Island in northern Wisconsin. Callie is originally from Minnesota and Crosby from Florida and Montana, but now they live together in California. Callie’s parents have owned a vacation home on Madeline Island where Callie and her family spent many summers! When Callie and Crosby got engaged, Madeline Island was the right place in their heart to get married.
With all of their guests traveling from all over the country and then via ferry to Madeline Island, Callie and Crosby decided to have a larger groom’s dinner than “normal”. With 120 guests, their groom’s dinner was the kick-off to their stunning wedding weekend. Crosby’s mom envisioned a ranch + hunter theme that Lace & Brass Events brought to life. Their closest family and friends literally surrounded them for this summer-casual event. It was a beautiful time to greet and socialize with their guests and celebrate each other!
