Wisconsin Micro Wedding Nicole Miro Photography

Were headed to Ashippun, Wisconsin in the US today for the whimsical micro wedding of Brynn and Eric, which was held on the 4th October 2020 at The Bowery Barn. I really loved hearing about Brynn and Eric’s approach to wedding planning, they just couldn’t wait to be married! So they went for a small celebration and planned their day within 3 months. They kept the wedding planning really laid back and the results were effortlessly beautiful.

Brynn and Eric both looked gorgeous in their outfits, there was greenery everywhere, donuts galore and some stunning burgundy flower arrangements. Just so very special. Thanks ever so much to Nicole Miro Photography LLC for sharing these stunning images with us.

Wisconsin Micro Wedding

The Proposal

Eric somehow managed to make the whole night seem like it was all my plan… so I obviously didn’t see it coming! We were spending the weekend up north at my family’s cabin in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin. I wanted us to get a picture together and then go out to dinner. On December 28th, 2019, we headed into town to take a picture in front of a beautiful tree that had been lit up for Christmas. As my dad was taking our picture, Eric got down on one knee!

The Vision

We knew that we wanted to have a small and intimate wedding because it would fit both of our laid-back personalities. We threw around the idea of doing a small ceremony up north or somewhere near a lake. All we knew was that we wanted something small and that we couldn’t wait to be married.

The Venue

Once we heard that The Bowery was holding micro weddings, we went to an open house. We were able to stick with our small, intimate wedding idea, but with the added bonus of a beautiful venue. We booked a date that was only 90 days out, but The Bowery was fantastic to work with and helped with any questions that we had. Not only are the barn and surrounding grounds breathtakingly beautiful – their whole staff is incredibly kind.

The Planning Process

Neither of us are very big planners, but there were a couple of things we knew we wanted. Donuts, and our puppy, Gus, to be there for some pictures.

With only 90 days until our wedding, we had to get moving right away with the planning. My mom was a big help with making sure everything was accomplished. Since neither Eric or myself are very picky, we went with the flow and followed my mom’s lead. All of our vendors ended up being amazing to work with, and it made the whole planning process run smoothly.

Beauty

My hair and makeup was done by Monica from Locks+Lashes. She is fantastic and perfectly executed my flower crown.

Outfits & Accessories

I found my wedding dress at Evermore Bridal. It was the first dress I tried on at Evermore and I knew immediately that it was the one. Since comfort for me is key, I wore sneakers from the Kate Spade x Keds line.

Eric wore a tuxedo and shoes from DuBois.

The Flowers

My mom came across a beautiful floral arrangement at the Stone Bank Farm Market, and was given the contact information for Andrea from Sage Floral LLC in Oconomowoc. As Oconomowoc residents, we loved the idea of working with someone local. I knew that I wanted the colors to be burgundy and blush with a lot of greenery. We were so impressed with how Andrea set everything up and how beautiful everything turned out.

Our Photographer

Nicole Miro Photography made us feel so comfortable behind the camera. She did our engagement session, and she kept in regular contact with us throughout the whole planning process. It was as if she was already a part of our family by the time our wedding day came. Nicole went above and beyond to make sure that every special moment was captured. Her attention to detail is outstanding. We are so thankful to have found her and we would recommend her to anyone!

The Details & Decor

My mom handled most of the decor. We stuck with a rustic theme with wood centerpieces, rose gold candle accents, greenery and flowers.

The Donuts

Cranky Al’s brought our donut dreams to life. Everyone was anxiously awaiting the moment that they could grab one off of the donut wall. Since neither of us are big cake people, we also had a giant donut made for our wedding cake!

Our First Dance

We had our first dance to the song “Yours” by Russell Dickerson.

Memorable Moments

The whole day was perfect and we had a blast. Having a small guest list allowed us to fully interact with everyone and spend time enjoying each moment. We had a blast cutting the giant donut and feeding each other. We are also so thankful that our dog was able to make an appearance for pictures because he is a big part of our lives!

Advice for Other Couples

Don’t put too much pressure on your big day. You want it to be enjoyable and as stress-free as possible. Leaning on my mom to follow up with vendors and make decisions about details and decor was a major help. Don’t let anyone else influence the decisions you make. It’s your wedding and it will be beautiful no matter what that looks like. Enjoy it!
