landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


I love that this couple chose their wedding date to fall on their 5 year anniversary. I love that this couple had a fall wedding but didn’t incorporate the typical fall wedding colors. I love that this couple got married in Wisconsin. I love that this couple shopped at thrift, antique and second hand shops to gather their wedding decor. I love that this couple incorporated a ‘fall’ themed wedding dessert. But what I love most is that this couple capped off their ceremony with a secret handshake. I think I’ve made it clear how much I love this wedding – from the color scheme to the flowers, the love in the photos and delicate decor, not to mention the adorable cardigan, I just love it all.

From the bride:
We met in the fall (5 years to the day of our wedding) and definitely wanted a fall wedding – but without the traditional autumn colors. With a lakefront ceremony, incorporating colors we liked more – blues & greens – worked perfectly. I had always loved the blue mason jars but wasn’t sure how difficult they would be to find – we stopped in every thrift/antique/secondhand store we passed and hit a few gold mines. We also discovered Fiestaware teacups and other glassware – and vintage Pez dispensers for our guests! Early on, I thought about incorporating apples into the overall look – caramel apples (so fall!) on the dessert table and dark red apples elsewhere. They went well with the deep red dahlias I envisioned (and got!) being the accent to all of our blues & greens. The florals were rounded out by the most lovely collection of succulents a bride could ask for. We wanted our ceremony to be personal & meaningful and asked my brother to officiate, our moms to read, and friends to sing and play music. We capped it off by sealing our vows with a secret handshake.
