Today, I traveled to Spicer Castle to photograph their venue for future advertising and web images. It is a well-known landmark on Green Lake, a bed and breakfast and restaurant still owned by the original family. Since the exterior is photographed so much, I concentrated on interior images that showed the quirkiness of the spaces and the overall design of the property. I also photographed some of the restaurant’s favorite dishes and exterior details. Since it was such a scorcher of a day and the home is huge with four cottages as well as the rooms (and I got to go on the roof!) I was sweating like crazy by the end, but excited at all the fun images I was able to take!
The castle is quite a favorite vacation spot and also has fun activities like dinner cruises and mystery dinner theater and supports local artists. I loved that every nook and corner of the property has something interesting to look at.
Besides the every day operations, the castle is also a wedding venue. Couples can either have their wedding and reception in the castle for a small group, or use a tent in the garden for a larger guest count. Renting out the entire property creates a fabulous wedding weekend where family and friends can really spend time with each other. And the rustic shabby chic look of the space is really fun to play with for a wedding design aesthetic.
And those of you who know me, know I’m all about the food! And I fully enjoyed the variety of dishes on their menu as well as the slight tweaks to standard fare so nothing seemed ordinary, and everything I tasted was delish!
And on the way home (thankfully in air conditioning!) I stumbled across this =)
