Ashley + Ross ~ Siebkens Resort in Elkhart Lake

Ashley and Ross had an absolutely gorgeous wedding on a perfect September day. Ashley created an amazing vintage theme with all of her hand made details. It really made the day more personal and it created an elegant atmosphere at their reception.  Their ceremony was at Ebenezer United Church of Christ in Sheboygan, WI and their reception was at Siebkens Resort in Elkhart Lake. The venue was a perfect fit for their vintage wedding style. The table scapes were so unique and creative! I love how Scrabble letters, old books, bud vases and handstitched table numbers were used to create the centerpieces. Their florist, Silvana Cassia, owner of Twig Flowers did an amazing job with the bouquets, boutonnieres and the centerpieces. Another unique twist was that instead of wedding cake for dessert, the bride, her Mom, aunts and cousins baked a large variety of cookies. Ashley and Ross also built a photo booth wall that featured other family members wedding pictures so when guest put their heads through the open frames it looked like they were part of the collage on the wall, what a fun idea!  Check out their awesome highlight slideshow here or below:

Instead of a unity candle the couple nailed a wooden box closed that contains letters they wrote to each other that they will open on their 5th & 35th anniversaries along with some wine. They chose 35 years because both of their parents will have been married for 35 years this year.
