I am so thrilled to finally share this beautiful venue and this fun collaboration of design with you here! 

I was very honored when Faith & Tim from Mystic Ponds Estate approached me to collaborate on a wedding venue styled shoot with them.  It was a privilege to help build a team to showcase their new venue and launch their Grand Opening.

Behind the Scenes with Mystic Ponds Estate 

Tim & Faith have spent the last three years renovating and preparing this private property estate to be a premier wedding and event space in Central Wisconsin.  Thank you Tim & Faith for allowing me to be part of your Grand Opening and I am so excited to welcome you and your family into the world of weddings!

What is Mystic Ponds Estate

Nestled on an expansive acreage, the estate includes a renovated gambrel barn with a rustic upper level and modern industrial main level, outdoor pavilion, quaint cabins, magnificent waterfront, charming fountain pond, scenic walking trails, mature woods and a beautiful sunset view.

Faith & Tim brought the barn back to life by keeping much of the originality while adding modern touches. This place is their little haven; a reminder to slow down, celebrate and appreciate the small things in life.

Central Wisconsin Wedding Venue

Mystic Ponds Estate stands apart from other wedding venues in the Central Wisconsin area because everything was created with the client and the guest experience in mind. Couples have the whole property for all their wedding day needs. In addition, Mystic Ponds Estate has an amazing community of professionals that are a fantastic combination of knowledge, creativity, and beauty right at the client’s fingertips. 

Floral Design

We planned this wedding mock-up to have a modern style with a bohemian vibe. Naomi of Green Bee Floral Designs, created amazing floral arrangements full of greenery and vibrant tones and textures. 

Design & Decor

Macrame (Amy Barkalow Designs) and gold accents complimented the concrete, industrial-chic atmosphere of the venue itself, while highlighting Mystic Ponds Estate’s beautiful multi-level and spacious grounds. Faith of Mystic Ponds EstateMarsha VanArk of Distinctly Yours Wedding & Events, along with Party Envy Rentals provided the invitation suite, table signage and other décor that matched the theme perfectly.

Our wedding styled shoot showcased how dynamic this space is; offering couples with on-site ceremony locations and a reception space. Clients can say I do in one of three different ceremony sites: on the waterfront in the beautiful outdoor gardens, under the open pavilion, or inside the rustic loft. Brides can pamper themselves and get ready for their big day in a gorgeous on-site bridal cabin.

Hair and makeup by Anastasia of The Blushing Bride made our bridal model, Hannah, look naturally stunning as she posed for pictures and elegantly withstood the fall breeze.

Naomi of Blessed & Beautiful Photography, the lead photographer and Tim Thornburg of TK Images, the videographer, beautifully captured this amazing new venue in Central Wisconsin. 

It takes a village to pull off a successful stylized shoot in order to make a new wedding space shine and prosper in the industry. Seeing all of us come together to work our magic is proof of the support and artistry in our community and our enthusiasm to work with vendors who also want to provide the absolute best for their couples. 

It was so fun to work with these awesome vendors and make this vision come to life. This is going to be one of the hottest new wedding venues in Central Wisconsin! I can’t wait to plan more  weddings here in the future. Check out the magic below!
