The big day is almost here and you’ve been dreaming of this moment maybe your entire life!

We are suckers for beautiful outdoor wedding tents! They provide a look of elegance, beauty, and magic to the area. They also provide your guests with shelter from outdoor elements. So, it’s no surprise that many people choose to have them for their big day. But, what may surprise you are all the different factors that should be considered when selecting a tent. It’s not as simple as just saying you want a tent for your wedding—there are lots of decisions to be made for choosing the right one!

Sometimes things don’t go according to plan. Mother Nature can be unpredictable and it’s good to have a backup plan for when the weather isn’t working in your favor. Here are a few tips to consider:
There are no words to describe Carolyn and Chris! They are such beautiful people, and it only makes sense because their families are equally as amazing. They are the perfect match made in heaven, or rather, the perfect match made in the air. Almost literally, y'all! (I may have spent too much time talking with this sweet Southern transplant!)
Chris and Carolyn happen to work for the same airline and somehow their paths crossed as Carolyn's plane landed in Baltimore. Thank goodness for that!! They were both sporting Packer lanyards and struck up a brief, yet memorable conversation before parting ways only to run into each other again that day! Carolyn left a note for Chris that said "Go Pack Go" and that may have sealed the deal. I'm sensing an underlying Packers theme here! Chris found her on Facebook and they carried on their conversations until they finally had a first date in Denver, CO.
Chris, originally from the East Coast, and Carolyn, originally from the West Coast, now live in the great state of Texas. So what's a couple to do when their families are on opposite sides of the county? Get married in Wisconsin, of course! Their mutual love of the Packers, and the "more" convenient, midwest Wisconsin destination meant a small, but mightly group of East- and West-coasters would descend on glorious Lambeau Field. We think they made a great choice!
Their busy schedules, compounded by living out of state, meant that needed some help. After a last minute coffee chat in-person while they were town to tour their venues, we set off to help the happy couple outline their budgetary priorities and come up with some fantastic design ideas. After that, we met month via video to help them progress through their planning checklist. We lined up the best wedding professionals to pull off one fantastic celebration! Take a look below!
Carolyn and Chris, we wish you endless years of celebration and you can be sure, we'll be cheering right along with you during every season of your marriage! Much love to you from Wisconsin!
