We can’t help ourselves, we adore this Wisconsin barn wedding. The bridesmaid’s wore the prettiest shade of teal and there was even a matching teal bike! We love this very important detail that the bride shared with us: “The most important part of planning our wedding was making sure that the event truly reflected our style and captured our spirits but didn’t cause us to lose sight of the purpose of the day. We live a very simple life that isn’t super luxurious or lavish so we didn’t want our wedding to be above and beyond either.” Enjoy these photos by Kelsy & Butch of The McCartneys Photography and be sure to read the rest of lovely brides thoughts below!
The most important part of planning our wedding was making sure that the event truly reflected our style and captured our spirits but didn’t cause us to lose sight of the purpose of the day. We live a very simple life that isn’t super luxurious or lavish so we didn’t want our wedding to be above and beyond either. We wanted it to be just enough detail to appreciate the amount of work that went into making the day beautiful but not be so many details that it was hard to remember / take them all in. There were certain elements of the event that Dustin wanted (Batman) and certain elements that Brittany wanted (Photo Booth) but the theme of our wedding was very much shared and the colors came from our apartment decor; elegant / rustic / casual. We chose to host our wedding in Wisconsin because this is where we met and most of our family lives in the mid-west so traveling logistics made more sense. Our favorite features of Munson Bridge Winery were the barn and the outdoor setting. We had fun with quite a few DIY elements as well (not as many as we would have liked because doing them in Florida and bringing them back to Wisconsin was too risky), such as designing the invitations and programs, signage throughout the reception, decorating the chalkboards, etc. Our favorite part of the day was dancing with all of our friends and family. Music plays a big part in our lives (usually we listen to music instead of watching t.v.!) and it’s such a communal activity that most people enjoy. The parts that stick out in our memory are: Dustin – First look, tearing open the sand during our sand ceremony, crying, I do, dinner toasts, cake in the face, dancing. And me – Waiting by the loft door and walking to my groom, taking pictures as husband and wife, dinner toasts, dancing. If we were to share any advice with future brides, I would say don’t take it so seriously. Yes, it’s a big day but the most important thing is preparing for the life that you are building with the person that you are marrying! – Brittany
