Romance & Candy: Playfully Quaint at the Batten House

November 23, 2018

If subtle quirkiness is your thing, we think you’ll love these whimsical wedding ideas at Boxed & Burlap in Lake Geneva! The creative minds behind this shoot chose Batten House—the venue’s cozier, homier space—for a rustic and romantic vignette with a dash of whimsy. At Fancier Magazine we adore intimate events and elopements, and fortunately, this space provided the perfect canvas for The Bride Consultant and our team to showcase a sweet little “micro” wedding. If you thought eloping meant sacrificing style, think again—this lovely little vignette offers small yet stylish wedding inspiration with lush florals, unique acrylic details and a delightful color palette including our favorite… Millennial Pink!

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 lovely shoot features the smaller of the two, which accommodates up to 50 guests. Learn more about the event spaces here.

detail to love: a romantic, textural bouquet

We simply adore the shape, color and textures in this bridal bouquet by Sunborn Gardens. We get a sense of “lightness” and whimsy from this beautiful bouquet and of course, we can’t get enough of the sheer, free-flowing ribbon!

idea to love: a soft, chic bridal look

We love a soft and romantic bridal look that leans more “chic” than “princess.” This barely-pink gown with formfitting lines, romantic detailing and subtle sex appeal does just the trick! Shop this style at Floravere and snag affordable accessories at Rent the Runway. For a gorgeous, modern hair style head over to Olive Grace Collective and for makeup, Case in Hand!

detail to love: a “millennial pink” suit

We’ll say it again—we love Millennial Pink! And even more than we love this shade, we’re obsessed with a groom who stands out. In our opinion a groom should steal the crowd’s attention, too! To browse a huge variety of chic, modern, wonderfully eye-catching suits, head over to ASOS.

detail to love: a hand-painted acrylic invitation

To elevate an otherwise simple approach to this invitation suite Coquie Paperie threw some hand-painted acrylic into the mix—and we’re freakin’ obsessed! We love this fresh take on the clear acrylic trend, and the dynamic look and feel of the hand-painted marble texture.

detail to love: a quaint, intimate ceremony

We weren’t kidding—eloping certainly doesn’t mean sacrificing style. The Bride Consultant and Sunborn Gardens show us how to pull off a quaint, whimsical, intimate wedding ceremony by making fantastic use of this small space at Batten House. To tie the look together, these rustic, vintage chairs were provided by Relics Vintage Rentals.

detail to love: an acrylic seating chart with floral feature

Of course, we’re still totally on board with the clear acrylic trend, especially when it’s pulled off so spectacularly! Coqui Paperie smartly played off the “lightness” and whimsy of the florals with the design of this seating chart. We especially love it layered against the textures of the florals!

We always flip for a cake with interesting details and this adorable rock candy cake from Mia Stav Cakes is no exception! We especially love the way this cake’s detailing complements the theme of this “sweet like candy” wedding shoot.
