Susan & Eric were married on a perfect day in May on a private farm in Butternut, Wisconsin. My trusty side kick, Whitney, accompanied me to this wedding, and we were so excited to make the drive up north. Northern Wisconsin is just beautiful- there’s something about the woods and the calm serenity. I love it! As we approached the farm a series of handcrafted signs led the way, until finally we spotted the gorgeous red barn in the distance… What an amazing spot to become husband and wife!!
The bride and groom planned the most fantastic day filled with special moments, a unique ceremony, and fun and vibrant personal details. I had tears in my eyes during the ceremony, and it was especially touching that Susan’s dad was able to meet her at the entry of the barn, and escort her down the aisle. Susan is the youngest in a big family of 8 siblings, and the last to get married. Her dad wasn’t sure if he would be able to walk down the aisle, but he joined Susan and gave her and Eric big hugs at the altar! Both sets of parents blessed the rings before the bride and groom placed them on each other’s fingers.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed sweets and lemonade on the lawn, before we headed to Norwood Pines Supper Club in Minoqua for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing.
I’d be remiss not to mention my amazing friends, Kelsy & Butch, a husband and wife film photography duo from Wausau, Wisconsin. Kelsy is Susan’s niece and one of her matrons-of-honor, and introduced me to her sweet aunt. You can catch photos of Kelsy & Butch below! Butch is the one holding the polaroid camera! :) Thanks also to Evolutions In Design for the stunning florals, and Bob Holl, who provided many laughs and entertainment as the MC and DJ at the reception.
Congratulations to the happy couple! I hope for you a life of bliss, love and adventure!! Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day!
