Goodness, where to even start with Cora & Drew’s amazing wedding weekend on Stout’s Island? If you that haven’t visited Stout’s Island, you’re totally missing out. It’s located in Birchwood, WI on beautiful Red Cedar Lake- which also happens to be my home town. Read all about the history of Stout’s Island here. It’s such a unique lodge, and really feels like a completely different era. I love the cabin, up-north, lake and woods feel to this place. You’re brought into a different time as soon as you step foot on the island off the ferry. Yes, you read that right, you have to take a ferry to get the island. It’s a wedding I will truly never forget!
Cora and Drew, along with their parents, hosted an entire weekend celebrating with their closest friends and family. They wanted the gorgeous fall colors, and while they definitely got what they asked for.. they also got something they didn’t.. SNOW! It was chilly, but they were just willing to go with the flow. With the ceremony being moved indoors, they didn’t mind, they just wanted to be married no matter where. Their day was filled with so much love, and family heirlooms. Cora’s dress was her Mother’s wedding dress, her veil was her Grandmothers, and her lavender bouquet was hand picked by her mom in Door County. Don’t miss the moment her Dad saw his daughter in his wife’s wedding dress, or Drew’s reaction to Cora, or.. Oh, you get it. SO many incredible moments!
From Cora’s initial email, I know I would absolutely adore this couple. If they didn’t live in Fargo, ND, I promise you we would be spending a ton of time together. But we will definitely get together on their yearly visits back to Birchwood, and I can’t wait. I feel so lucky to have been a part of your wedding; Cora & Drew! Cheers to many years together!
