Here in Wisconsin—the land of the tried-and-true—artistic wedding professionals rarely get the opportunity to step outside the box and invent something new. Even though we love a beautiful barn wedding as much as the next Midwesterner, Fancier Magazine’s mission is to provide a platform for Wisconsin wedding pros to push the envelope, breathe life into tired wedding trends and inspire couples with an eye for design. To kickstart four days of creative experimentation at Boxed & Burlap this team aimed to put a unique spin on a well-worn theme—modern boho—by focusing on unique textures and an unexpected color palette.
Boxed & Burlap is a gorgeous, unique, newly renovated event space in the Lake Geneva area that offers two primary wedding spaces—the barn and Batten House. This stunning shoot features the larger of the two, the barn, which accommodates up to 300 guests. Learn more about the event spaces here.
Traditional suiting might seem like the obvious choice for a formal event, but in this case, a casual look with western flair perfectly complements the design of a modern boho wedding. We often see the groom’s attire overlooked or overshadowed by an adjacent red carpet wedding gown, so of course, we fall head-over-heels when we see flamboyant, attention-grabbing groom style! Oh, and if you’re totally in love with this groom’s hat, snag your own over at Alexander Westwood!
Once again, we’re loving how thoughtful this team was with style choices and small details. Forgoing the more obvious choice of formal bridal shoes, this team went with a casual slip-on with floral embroidery—comfortable and photo worthy!

We’re really feeling flat, bold colors at the moment—especially when it comes to paper design! We LOVE the addition of bold black to this simple stationery suite by The Crafty Peach, and the way it stands out against a metal surface.

It’s simple—we just LOVE this unique bridal look! Hair by Smash smartly chose a natural texture, added a simple braid to create shape and finished with a unique bobby pin design to complement the geometric jewelry from Urban Outfitters. The Posh Beauty Bar kept the makeup look young and fresh with shimmer, highlight and rose-pink hues.
Boxed & Burlap provided the perfect rustic yet industrial backdrop for this modern boho vignette. We’re obsessed with the atmospheric vibe inside this chuppah with stunning floral design by Feisty Flowers and vintage rattan pieces from Relics Vintage Rentals—we especially love the thoughtful use of space in this unique design, with a bold “more is more” approach.
This warm, cozy vibe is *everything*. The talented team at Feisty Flowers made these super on-trend arrangements with no greenery, and instead, complimented the autumnal blooms with dried foliage and bleached peacock feathers. Must we say it? We’re freakin’ in LOVE.
If the goal was to put a unique spin on “modern boho” then we’d say Wood Violet Events CRUSHED it with the bold design of this table. We love the flat, clean tones and mixed metals to elevate a more rustic boho look, as well as the addition of bold black details.
Truthfully, we’ve seen it time and time again, but we still love *everything* watercolor. We’re seriously appreciating this watercolor cake by To Di For Bakery for it’s subtlety, texture and unique color palette.
