MiJa & Lucius Destination: Stout's Island Lodge
Wedding Date: June 15th 2019
It's not every day that you can say you got married on your very own island! Mija and Lucius were good friends that found each other in most unusual corners of the world through their shared love of cooking and travel. Their adventures would eventually lead them to a wedding at a place very special to Lucius's family, the 100 year old lumberjack island in the middle of Wisconsin, Stout’s Island Lodge. Rita Swanson, of Premier Planning, pulled everything succinctly together to ensure rain was chased away and guests we chatty and perfectly happy. Since both MiJa and Lucius have a culinary background, the food preparation and artistry was especially significant to the pair. Throughout the night, food experiences abound and even made its way to the dance floor with glow-in-the-dark savory cotton candy. What?! So cool. To cap the night, guests were asked to make their way to the lawn to witness a beautiful display of fireworks painting the lake and the stunning white tent in their color. This display was almost as impressive as these two in life...but I don’t think anything can match this pair!
