Spring 2021 Wedding Inspiration Editorial with Real Life Couple

Allow me to introduce to you Derrik and Kaci, a Madison, WI based real life couple are engaged to be married this fall! They were the sweetest couple to help bring this vision to life, created by a talented team of vendors.

The Barn on Prairie is Janesville's newest, and most amazing wedding venue, and there are not enough words for how lovely the venue is. A top to bottom renovation created a sophisticated Janesville, Wisconsin wedding venue unlike anything else in the area. See more photographs of the venue throughout this post!


The color palette and inspiration started simply, with Pantone Spring/Summer 2021. The #pantonespring2021 palette is called"Summer Bouquet"

and it evokes a feeling warm summer sun on your skin as you lay in a field of blooming flowers swaying in the gentle breeze. The pops of bright fuschia against the subtle peaches and lively greens make the senses come alive, invigorating yet softly beautiful. Pantone describes it as "Pale hazy petals combine with exotic pinks and an herbal green to create a fresh summer palette that celebrates the positivity and happiness of colors from nature."

Sunborn Gardens' owner and visionary is Lisa Larsen, and she took off with that simple place of inspiration, and truly created the most beautiful flower arrangements --the tablescape, decor arrangements, bouquet and boutonnieres were-- simply breathtaking. Lisa crafted pale yellow and kissed peach ranunculus, white and light pink tulips, decadent cappuccino roses (my personal fav), fuschia spray roses, local sweetly delicate pink stock flower and home-grown eucalyptus in whimsical, unstructured designs that were nothing short of wizardry. Sunborn Gardens specializes in creating local, sustainable arrangements, utilizing their own grown flowers as much as possible.

Can you imagine Lisa literally growing your bouquet from seed, tending to each bud as it grows, and then her hand-cutting and arranging each flower to create something beyond what you've ever imagined for your wedding flowers?


While the flowers and tablescape were set up by Lisa, the hair and makeup team were at work glamming up our beautiful bride, Kaci.


Nadiya Mashkina, our amazing make up artist, provides on-site makeup services. She created this glamorous, yet natural look on Kaci. Adding lashes accentuated Kaci's bright blue eyes, while her rose lip color played on the pinks in the flowers. Nadiya's expertise created a warm, sculpted cheek bone, a luminous glow, and precise brow that brought out every gorgeous feature of Kaci's youthful face.

Chelsea Christl, of B. Beauty Bar is a talented and fun (look at that leopard print!) hair stylist. She created a look that was a perfect balance of glammed up curls, full body, and movement. She chose loose curls with plenty of bounce to complement the make up, Kaci's hair texture, color, and the dress!




While the glam squad was busy at work, we turned our attention to capturing the refined custom stationary created by the detailed Shelby Lynn Designs. As a graphic designer, her custom invitation suite included an invitation, RSVP card, details card for reception and accommodation information and a return envelope. Shelby used a perfect pink to accompany the Pantone 2021 inspired theme, and used a combination of a gorgeous, (yet readable) script font and a serif font. The result was a beautifully crafted custom invitation suite with style and sophistication.

Sunborn Gardens' Lisa Larsen styled the invitation suite with her bright pink boutonnieres, peach ranunculus, bloomed tulip, cappuccino roses and bits of greenery and berries.

Additional custom stationary detailed the table, with a unique menu design that perfectly complemented the gorgeous tablescape created by Sunborn Gardens, The Barn on Prairie's own barnwood table, and rentals from Best Events Catering and Special Event Productions.

How gorgeous is all of this together?


Speaking of gorgeous, let's look at more of how this all came together!


These wooden wedding chairs, rattan chargers, white plates, glassware and white chiffon long table runner were all provided by Janesville Wisconsin wedding and event rental (the best event rental company in Rock County), Best Events Catering and Special Event Productions.

Look at how white, light, and bright this beautiful room is at The Barn on Prairie's smaller room, just right for elopements, engagement parties, and cocktail hours!

Here's a look at the venue's main floor space with bar, just one of three of their areas perfect for receptions, weddings, and parties!


Ok...teaser. You see that dress? There's more to come! In the next post, see more details of AMAZING dress, the beyond-cute couple, and of course the sweetest (sorry, had to) part of the day, the cake!
