Welcome OkobojiWeddings.com!

Welcome to OkobojiWeddings.com, Okoboji’s premier wedding resource. 
If you are like many engaged couples, you have family ties to the area or have been visiting our lakes area for generations, only to return to this special place to celebrate one of the most thrilling events of your life – your wedding day.  This unique place, with its natural beauty, provides an incredible backdrop to enhance your special day and create memories you will cherish together for a lifetime.  

For the past 25 years I have been so fortunate to be able to help couples realize the wedding they have always envisioned.  Watched as Okoboji has evolved to a place where self-expression and artistic elements are utilized in such creative ways to custom design that “once in a lifetime” event.  Watched as the narrowly defined traditional wedding gave way to imaginative and inspired individualism we relish in today.  

Gone, are the archaic rules that “all bridesmaids have to wear the same color and style of dress”, “your playlist has to include the Chicken Dance and the Electric Slide”,  “your registry has to consist of home goods and housewares”, &“ceremony seating is divided by a groom’s side and a bride’s side”.  In, are the expressive and digital resources of Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and numerous others have allowed Brides to create the day of their dreams in the most imaginative and unique ways.

I have helped hundreds of brides throughout the years as these old paradigms shifted and it has become increasingly obvious that there is an unrealized need to link those brides-to-be with the resources that the lakes area has to offer… and thus OkobojiWeddings.com is born. I am excited to be part of this dynamic team and sharing my knowledge through frequent guest posts.

Today is our first step, as we journey hand-in-hand with you, to create the unforgettable wedding you envisioned.  As our team evolves we will be adding more to this site, including featuring brides, current trends, and additional tools.  We strive to not only give our readers the latest information and resources to create their dream wedding, but also provide a platform for brides to connect and share their experiences.

Our team at OkobojiWeddings.com would love to receive your ideas, questions and suggestions to enhance and make this the best resource possible.  Share your idea of a perfect wedding day and we will help you achieve it.

Happy planning and wishing you a beautiful breezes, love and abundance on your wedding!!
