New Glarus Wisconsin Wedding Photographer–Colleen and Joel’s homestead wedding

When I met with Colleen and Joel, I could feel the warmth emulating from them as they described Joel’s home, at which they’d marry.  Somehow, a venue with meaning makes it sparkle on a wedding day…and I could tell this would be such a place for Colleen and Joel.  They told me about this big oak tree that centers the yard, and I got goosebumps at the thought of them returning to this tree year after year playing back the history they created.  It’s so magical and meaningful, and I LOVE that they chose his family farm, “O double T homestead” to seal their vows.

Matching perfectly with their personalities, the ceremony was beautiful and laid back, and oh, did I mention beautiful?  The back yard of the family home was filled with the most loved ones, and flowers fresh from the gardens that surrounded them.  A beautiful breeze swept the field and the sun sat perfectly on the horizon.  To top of the most beautiful setting was the most beautiful bride and groom, with a most beautiful love.  They have a sweet, yet goofy love and are always making each other laugh.  Avid sports fan, Joel even incorporated a fist bump BEFORE the first kiss as man and wife.  They shared a love that is evident to everyone that surrounded them, and fit perfectly together.

Colleen and Joel chose to do a first look before their ceremony, which I LOVE.  It gives the bride and groom a private moment to settle their nerves and revel in the moment.  It also allows for a nice period of time to take nice relaxed pictures of the couple.  And if I do say so myself–these two are SUAVE!  Colleen and Joel, thank you for inviting me into your family on such a special day, and may you always go back to the big oak and feel the magic that we all felt when you were wed.
