This incredibly intimate garden celebration proves DIY weddings sure as hell shouldn’t be written off. With countless elements of thoughtful & provincial day-of details, this wedding was authentic & joyful.
Five homemade wedding cakes were carefully baked & decorated the night before the wedding by one of the grooms’ aunt: black forest, lemon & lavender to name a few. Both grooms were hands-on during Friday set-up at the private Wisconsin garden property.
Every herb imaginable was incorporated into the floral décor, entrées or growing right across from the ceremony space. Matt & Karl were married in Calvin Klein tailored suits and exchanged hand-written marriage vows on a brick terrace overlook.
Guests played yard games like bocce and enjoyed locally sourced charcuterie boards and family-style, rustic meals. Matt & Karl sent their beloved guests home with mini jars of homemade jam and personal notes.
