Summer means months of outdoor activity in Wisconsin…and that includes outdoor weddings. The Wisconsin Department of Tourism just sent us this list of luxury resorts offering wedding venues (and event-planning staff members to help you plan the details!)
Readers of Wisconsin Bride magazine recently named the Heidel House Resort (1-800-444-2812) “Best Honeymoon Resort & Best Reception Site.” The resort offers two ceremony sites – in the garden surrounded by flowers or lakeside on the shores of stunning Green Lake. The Escapade yacht can host up to 65 people for a reception. Other reception sites suit a number of events from a casual cookout to a lakefront reception seating 250 guests.
Exchange vows in front of Telemark Resort’s 55-foot field stone fireplace, at the top of Mt. Telemark or the intimate parlor. Photo opportunities are endless at this resort, which is located on 950 acres of pristine Northwoods forests. Guests will have a variety of activities available to them from cross-country skiing and horseback riding to fishing and golf. (1-877-798-4718)
