This is the first in a series of blog posts intended to help stimulate the wedding couple who prefer a wedding event seeped in a casual atmosphere of woods, water, gardens and rustic buildings. Because this best describes Caribou Bay Retreat and Event Center; and because I am the blogger and a Managing Director of this fine venue; the narrative will focus on our experiences at the retreat and how this might help you Create the Perfect Rustic Wedding.
Congratulations! You’re engaged to be married! You and your partner have decided to tie the knot. You’ve probably already talked about what your perfect wedding would look and feel like. You’re both in agreement… a casual, rustic wedding is perfect for us!
First things first… You’ll need to pick a season and, for flexibility, some dates that will work for you. If you live in the Midwest, just about any time of the year can be spectacular in its own special way. Of course we have many requests for weddings in the late spring, summer and fall. But winter in Wisconsin is now becoming a beautiful time of the year to get married. We’ve set the retreat up for weddings year around. If you choose to stay completely indoors for your winter wedding, our event center can act as a chapel for your ceremony and a wonderful building for your reception and evening festivities. And don’t forget that bon fire we can accommodate you with. Make memories that will last forever!
