Caitlin & Robert | Magical Forest Wedding at Burlap and Bells | Black River Falls, Wisconsin

I always get so excited to return to Burlap and Bells, it’s where my career started and although we have shot here several times now, every wedding has been so different from the rest. It’s a perfect blank slate venue for the outdoorsy couple looking for something a little bit more intimate and a little more WOW. The ceremony location tucked away in the pines? Magic! When getting to know Caitlin & Robert throughout the year, their story and their vision, I knew it was going to be another epic one for the books. Caitlin and Robert met on the first day of high school where they work. and Robert was immediately smitten by the new girl Caitlin. They had about four months of what Caitlin likes to call “noticing, *cough cough staring*” and awkward attempts at starting conversation. They didn’t work directly together so she thought it was odd when he volunteered to take a case with her. But ever since, they have been inseparable. They got engaged in Mexico and after an adventurous day of canoeing, ziplining, repelling into a cave, and then hiking to the top of a Mayan temple, it was at the top of the pyramid that Robert got down on one knee & she said yess!

They got married in the pine tree grove, Bob’s children serving as best man and maid of honor. And afterwards guests took to the pavilion were they were treated to a Mexican buffet by Sweet Clarisse Catering (not gonna lie, I get super excited when my couples choose them & I get to eat more of their food :P), copper mule mug favors, cupcakes from Food Network Award Winning Bakery – Meringue Bakery, and shaved ice truck for dessert. And let’s not forget the kiddos! The little guests were also treated to their own kids table of lollipops & etcha sketches, and even a blow up trampoline, making sure EVERYONE had a great time. Soundtracks from their favorite Fantasy movies filled the pavilion as guests ate and enjoyed shelter from the hot sunny day. They used vintage books from Caitlin’s grandparent’s collection for decor and pages from Harry Potter novels served as their table runner underneath green garlands. The two newlyweds ended the night with a choreographed dance filled with flair, and guests joined in to help celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs, dancing the night away under the string lights. Such a magical day, full vendor list & highlight of images below. Enjoy!
