Happy Friday, Junebugs! To start the best day of the week off right, we’ve got an exceptional Midwest wedding complete with green pastures, a rustic barn, and of course, breathtaking photography. Keeping their love of the outdoors in mind, Allison & Michael decided to celebrate their wedding at a lovely farm just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. Captured by Woodnote Photography, their elegant and fun wedding was full of adorable details and thoughtful touches. From their beautiful couple portraits to Allison’s gorgeous gown, this Wisconsin farm wedding is simply stunning and is sure to make your heart skip a beat or two. Enjoy!
The Couple: Allison & Michael
The Wedding: Century Barn, Mt Horeb, Wisconsin
The Inspiration: “I would classify it as vintage-chic. I wanted to capture a timeless look and remain true to our city-style. I think having our wedding outdoors/in a barn was a great way to incorporate our love for the outdoors, but we were also able to bring in our vintage/chic style so that it didn’t appear casual or country. It turned out exactly as we dreamed it would!”
The Moments: “Our favorite moment was after dinner when our photographers grabbed us for a few moments away from it all to take some pictures. We drove pretty far away into a field and michael and I just spent some time together (alone) chatting about the day and walking around in the fields. It started to slightly sprinkle and it was just a perfect moment to wrap up the chaos of the day. It was peaceful and romantic and Woodnote was able to capture it on camera.”
The Couple Recommends: “Corrine Van Arsdale (Canvas Weddings) was a fabulous day-of wedding planner. She put up with all of our demands and made our wedding day an absolute dream for us. She made my “vision” into an actual reality (but better).
Woodnote Photography – Not only are they talented photographers, they help you stop and take it all in. Without them, I don’t think we would have stopped to take time together as husband and wife, or just to take it all in. Overall, all of our vendors were very well received and we would recommend!”
