Alexander and Lilli {{Mineral Point, WI Wedding Photographer}}

You’re cordially invited to a destination wedding in lovely Mineral Point, Wisconsin! What? You’re from Chicago and you’ve never heard of Mineral Point? Huh? What does it have to offer? Just small-town Wisconsin charm and the vintage Norwegian-themed wedding of Alexander and Lilli.

Alexander and Lilli, both artists from Chi City with absolutely no ties to Wisconsin, decided to have their bryllup (Norwegian for wedding, keep up guys, obviously I’ve made excellent use of Google Translate) in rural Mineral Point because they fell in love with the historical Gundry House at Orchard Lawn.

In typical destination wedding fashion, the bridal party came to Mineral Point a few days before the ceremony to stay at a historic house and hang out as a group. In the days leading up to the wedding, it poured rain so the bridal party put up a tent. On the morning of the wedding, everyone pitched in to unload trucks of rented vintage items from À la Crate.

After getting everything set up, everyone headed into the Gundry House to get ready. Lilli, her bridesmaids, and her mom did each other’s hair and makeup. The bridesmaids got dressed in their vintage green dresses and Lilli chose between the two vintages dresses she brought. You read that last sentence correctly; the bride didn’t have her dress picked out until the day of the wedding. Officially coolest bride ever. Once the ladies and gents were dressed, Alexander and Lilli had their unofficial first look amongst the Greek columns on the porch of the house.

Live accordion and violin music accompanied Lilli as she made her way down the grass aisle toward Alexander. A friend officiated the vielsen (ceremony, obvi) and Alexander and Lilli wrote the whole thing themselves.

Many wedding guests brought vintage cameras and film to document the day. For us camera nerds, seeing so many people carrying around a Super 8mm and medium format twin lens camera is like being at Disney World. Alexander and Lilli also provided an old-school Polaroid camera so guests could take pictures of themselves and write messages to the bride and groom.

The guests enjoyed a dinner by Enos Farms at harvest tables decorated with Norwegian porcelain vases, mismatched china, and vintage silverware. Post-dinner, there were so many activities. Activities roll call! Lawn games, including badminton and croquet, fancy drinks with paper straws, and a piñata shaped like a Norwegian teakettle filled with… waitforit… bouncy balls! Skål! to the happy couple!
