Weddings in Door County are a magical blend of smiles and laughs, kisses and hugs, family and friends. This Real Wedding has a surreal quality of looking like the past even though it was captured just this past June. The romantic moments on the beach, special looks between friends, and abundant chorus of colors speaks to what a wedding in Door County can be — a piece of history you’ll share with family and friends for many years to come.
From the Bride … Door County has always been my home away from home. I grew up spending my summers in Sister Bay at the beautiful stone home which has been in my family for five generations. Not only that, but this is the place where my grandparents met and where my parents were married. Thankfully, Cody fell in love with Door County as well, so naturally it was an easy pick for our wedding day.
When I try to explain our wedding to people, the only word I can come up with is “perfection.” Everything, from the trolley to the cake was absolutely perfect. Hair & Makeup: Kari Pudlo helped me and my bridesmaids feel beautiful all day long. Plus, she kept us laughing and relaxed. Our flowers by Helene at Flora were gorgeous! I love how she was able to capture my vision and color palette perfectly.
Shepherd of the Bay is such a beautiful church. Cody and I loved being able to look out and see our friends and family who had traveled from all over the country to witness our love for each other.
Our reception was at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club, and I cannot sing its praise enough! The staff is incredible; the view from the bluff is stunning; and the food is delicious (I ate my entire plate!). In addition, Don Mueller from Elite Music Service made our reception a party! Our guests had so much fun! He played all of our requests and even helped to successfully coordinate a prank on our wedding party.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had Michael Segal as our photographer. Truly, the pictures speak for themselves. Michael has an uncanny ability to capture people and those special fleeting moments. He is so comfortable to be around and his enthusiasm is contagious. We will treasure our wedding pictures for the rest of our lives.
Finally, our wedding would not have been a success without the planning and guidance of Carrie Baldwin-Smith from Door County Events. She became an intimate part of our lives over the last 2 years and because of her, never once during the planning process or even on the day of our wedding, was I worried that my wedding day would be less than spectacular.
Cody and I are so blessed. We will always remember how perfect our wedding was and I owe so much of that to the passionate people of Door County.
