Lakeside Outdoor Tent Wedding at Heidel House Resort & Spa in Green Lake, WI // Mattison + Tracy
This modern minimalist-style wedding was held on the beautiful shores of Green Lake, Wisconsin. At the Heidel House Resort & Spa under 100 year old oak trees, Mattison + Tracy shared their vows with close family and friends at the Carriage Patio. These two live in Chicago, but have always enjoyed coming up for the summers in Green Lake, and so when they started to plan their wedding they knew Green Lake would be the perfect location to share their “I do’s” with each other.
As the two got ready in separate locations at the resort, they were so anxious to get ready and see each other for their first look. Under the trees and away from guests, Mattison didn’t want to let Tracy go after their first embrace. As they waited for guests to be seated for their ceremony, they each shared a bottle of cold Spotted Cow (one of their WI favorites). After beautiful vows were said, sweet moments and advice shared by each parent of theirs, and a very large round of applause, the two walked back down the aisle as husband and wife. The fun and the lawn games began with delicious hors d'oeuvre passed around for guests to enjoy. In their beautifully decorated tent reception area, they all sat down to eat dinner. Family and friends were able to share stories of the two of them, making everyone smile and laugh together. As the sun began to set on the lake, they snuck away for a couple minutes together. This was a great time to really enjoy each other’s company without any distractions. Take in the gorgeous sunset and reminisce on just how quickly the time went for them both. When the sun had finally faded, the party was just getting started. They seem to have never left the dance floor and showed off those tremendous dancing skills all night long!
A bit more about them: These two met on a trolley bar crawl for a mutual friend's birthday (very classy Mattison shares) and got engaged on a bridge overlooking the grand canal in Venice! They love planning date nights at least once per month. Whether that’s a movie in the park where they reside in beautiful downtown Chicago or a nice dinner, those nights are always one of their favorites nights of the month.
