Taran & Austin | A Perfect Rustic Day | Princeton, WI
We haven't seen Taran & Austin since we shot their engagement last year and it was nearing their wedding day. Oh, how the time just flies by. I remember when we first met Taran. She excitedly told us about her wedding plans and now that the day was finally arriving, we couldn't wait to see them again and have all the details come together. With all the rain and thunderstorms we've been getting during September, we were not sure what kind of weather we would be in for.
When we arrived at Mt. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in the morning, the sun was out and there wasn't a cloud in sight. We split up, with me hanging out with the girls while Chee La headed downstairs to meet up with the guys. It was very sweet watching them exchange notes with each other before the ceremony. Taran got a little emotional and teary while reading them. As did Austin but he read his letters in private. Their ceremony went beautifully and before you knew it, they were walking down the aisle as husband and wife.
Then it was onto the party bus and off to Huser Farm, but not before the bridal party made a quick stop at Thunderboss for some drinks along the lake. When we arrived at Huser Farm, we saw why Taran and Austin chose it. It was such a beautiful and rustic barn venue. Aged wood, globe lighting, beautiful flowers and room to roam. There were so many spots to photograph, we wished that there was more time to take them all around. Everyone cheered and welcomed them in with the grand march and during dinner, we snuck out with them for a few sunset shots before resuming activities with speeches. Finally, it was party time and there was plenty of drinks and dancing to be had. The dance floor was packed with friends and family dancing the night away.
Taran and Austin, thank you so much for choosing us to capture your beautiful day. We had so much fun and we we wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!
Cheers, Mai See & Chee La
