Real Wedding: Chelsea + Greg | Tented Summer Wedding at The Refuge in Appleton

September 25, 2019

Chelsea and Greg are adventurers at heart. With Greg having lived in Spain, and the two of them having friends across the United States, they knew when it came time for their wedding that they wanted to show their friends everything that they loved about Wisconsin. Personal touches like Spanish tile favors and passed Old Fashioneds helped fuse Spanish and Midwest cultures for one unforgettable day!

When planning, Chelsea and Greg told us they wanted a relaxed outdoor wedding where friends and family could gather and enjoy the a Wisconsin summer night. The Refuge in Appleton was the perfect backdrop for their big day, with blue and peach tones incorporated throughout their attire, flowers and decor. Guests enjoyed transportation on the Fox River by Fox River Cruises to get to the venue, and the couple’s sailcloth tent was an amazing gathering place for guests to enjoy dinner and dance the night away.

Tented weddings can be a huge production, but with the right team in place, they come together seamlessly and leave a lasting impression on your guests. Enjoy our favorites from Chelsea and Greg’s big day. We’re so thrilled to have been a part of this one!
