The snow-covered hillsides and pockets of evergreen trees of Tyrol Basin made for the perfect backdrop to this rustic, romantic, and vibrant winter styled shoot. Coordinated and captured by Larissa Marie Photography, we invite you to view the charming, non-traditional elements of this gorgeous scape featuring some of our incredible vendors, such as Sugar Pear Design, Soha Diamond Co., and Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier.

P.S. There may or may not be a couple of adorable dogs involved.

Our groom is wearing a refined rustic ensemble consisting of raw denim pants and a fitted navy sport coat. The look is finished off with a dashing polka dot bow tie.

This gorgeous ring from Soha Diamond Co. is a vintage-inspired halo, with a lab-grown ruby center stone, accented with lab-grown diamonds in 14k white gold using recycled precious metals. The unique details, such as the milgrain beading and geometric shapes add a little flair to this design!

Our bride is a winter dream in her lace long-sleeved top from Bucci's Bridal paired with a handmade blue tulle skirt. Her hair is styled in a loose, elegant single braid that Elsa would have even been proud of in this snowy scene.

Stunning stationery elements designed by Sugar Pear Design pay homage to the venue with a beautiful mountainscape across the top of the invitation, deckle edges, and gold gilding perfectly complementing the rustic vibe of the grounds.

The details and decor elements provided by Velvet Rentals truly matched the rustic and romantic feel of this venue. A genuine antique sweetheart table from the 1800's, Victorian balloon back chairs, and a 2-piece cake and dessert table added beautiful depth to the design.

The florals designed by Sunborn Gardens truly are a stunning focal point of this styled shoot. The bits of pine combined with the Wisconsin grown Anemone flowers and an appearance of cotton made for a unique and romantically rustic arrangement. 

A gorgeous, 2-tiered cake from Hailey's Sweets And Treats incorporated a naked cake top and sweater wrapped bottom. Various fresh fruit and florals styled throughout add vibrant pops of color. The collection of beautiful loose-leaf tea mixes from Telsaan Tea, along with a tea set, add a bit of romantic warmth to the display.

Chocolate Truffles from Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier provided a fun and charming aspect to the dessert table and as favors on the sweetheart table. They are a delicious sweet treat to finish off a wedding celebration!

Larissa Marie Photography beautifully captures emotional, candid, and timeless moments for wedding couples' unique stories. The videography from this gorgeous styled shoot is available here.
