Come Rain or Sunflowers
Heather and Lucas met while working a summer job at Wisconsin Public Service. The two got engaged at the sunflower farm in Cecil, WIsocnsin. “I really wanted to go to the sunflower farm,” Heather says, “but the day we had planned to go, it was raining. Lucas insisted we still go, and when we got there, it was pouring.”
The two waited until the rain stopped, then walked to a platform overlook. “That’s where he proposed!” Lucas even had Heather’s best friend waiting in the sunflowers to take pictures. “She waited in the downpour to capture the big moment—but all her pictures had Lucas’ head cut off.”
Lucas and Heather planned an October wedding in their home town of Green Bay. The ceremony took place at Heather’s home church, with the reception at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center. Heather found her Morilee gown at Elaine’s Bridal Green Bay. Lucas’ formalwear came from DuBois Formalwear, and the wedding rings from Meyer Jewelers.
On the day of the wedding, one of the moments that really sticks with Heather is her first look. She did a first look with her dad and her bridesmaids. “My mom was the only person who knew what my dress looked like.”
“My favorite part of the ceremony was having it at my home church. My church doesn’t have a lot of weddings, so it was very special to be there surrounded by all our friends and family. After the ceremony, we had our guests throw confetti of dried leaves as we walked to an old car to ride off. The car had tin cans hanging off the back and a sign that said ‘Just Married.
Popular Wedding Photo Pit-Stop
En route to the reception, the party stopped for photos at Fonferek Glen.
The Radisson Reception
The Radisson provided the catering and bartending. “We did family-style chicken and beef tips. Several guests commented on the food and said it was one of the best.” For drinks, there was an Old Fashioned fountain during happy hour, and after dinner, there was beer and wine.
Dessert was catered by Lucas’ favorite bakery, Bake My Day. As a late-night snack, the Radisson served a breakfast buffet. “Breakfast food is our favorite, so we were thrilled we could serve that at our wedding!”
Details Big & Small
Heather says that as stressful as it was, her favorite things to plan were the details. “That’s what made our day ours. Other people may share the same venue or bus, but the small details are what make the day unique to you.” One of the favorite big details was dancing the night away to their amazing band, Star Six Nine. Of the small details, Heather particularly enjoyed incorporating her and Lucas’ relationship into the day. “I saved old tickets and souvenirs from dates we went on and had those displayed at the wedding, along with photos of us.”
Heather’s final tip for future brides:
“Enjoy every minute of the wedding planning process. At times it can be stressful, but it will all work out.”
