Bride and groom in Wisconsin forest on fall wedding day

Meet Caitlin & Craig.

Caitlin and Craig met on a dating app in Baltimore shortly after college. Craig is a Controls Engineer who hales from Central Wisconsin and Caitlin is a Boutique Fitness Studio Manager, and these two are delightful. They live in Seattle, WA and chose to have a Destination Wisconsin wedding so Craig’s grandfather would be able to be present. They were happy with SentryWorld as a venue and all they were able to take care of, and the rest is history!

Going into the wedding, Caitlin and Craig had some hopes for the colors, the vibe, the venue, and we loved their vision from the start! They wanted earthy green colors, reflecting their love of the outdoors and the colors of the Pacific Northwest, their chosen home together. They wanted their wedding day to be intimate, relaxed, fun, peaceful and joyful.

The Inn at SentryWorld

Weddings at SentryWorld are always beautiful, but with SentryWorld’s new construction of The Inn at SentryWorld, this intimate wedding was off-the-charts gorgeous. The Inn is cozy, yet high-end, and was the perfect spot for this destination wedding with high attention to detail and a low guest count. We love the luxe touches that make this venue truly special. They also took care of all the food and drink, which simplified the planning process for all.

The outdoor space for the ceremony was intimate and had beautiful views of the golf course, and the indoor reception space at The Inn was somehow grand and cozy at the same time.

When we asked Craig and Caitlin what their best piece of wedding planning advice was, here’s what they had to say:

Start wedding planning earlier than you think you need to, it comes up fast. Don’t stress too much over pleasing everybody because its not possible, just make sure you do what will make YOU happy on YOUR wedding day.”
