We were so thrilled to be a part of this Enchanted Barn Wedding for Megan and Dan! The day was so much fun, and we got to shoot at one of our all time favorite venues!
The Bride and Groom
As soon as these two booked us for their enchanted barn wedding we circled it on our calendar and eagerly awaited the day. Not only would we get to shoot at an awesome venue that we love so much, but we also knew how much fun it would be to work with Megan and Dan. They were the perfect mix of being excited for their big day and knowing what they wanted, while also being able to relax and laugh non stop throughout the day.
The Venue – The Enchanted Barn | Hillsdale, WI
This is definitely one of our favorite venues to shoot at, and it certainly lived up to our high expectations once again. Literally in the middle of nowhere (like doesn’t come up when you search it in map apps), The Enchanted Barn is the PERFECT place to get married. Everything is so accessible, the space and property is absolutely perfect, they get some killer sunsets, and it’s not too far away from Minneapolis. Not to mention the exceptional staff at the venue, and the non stop effort to always be improving.
The Wedding – Enchanted Barn Wedding
This day started out at the Grand Shanty, just a short drive down the road from the main barn, where both Megan and Dan got ready. This wonderful space is a great place with tons of natural light, and beautiful decor that rides the line of both rustic and modern.
Megan hung out with her girls while they did hair and makeup, and in the meantime, Dan was downstairs with his groomsmen. After makeup wrapped up, Megan and her bridesmaids popped some champagne, and then Megan read a sweet note from her soon to be husband. Shortly after, everyone got into their wedding attire and headed for the barn. Megan chose to do a first look with her bridesmaids, followed by a first look with her parents which was so sweet. After that, Megan and Dan spent a few minutes together reading notes to each other, while making sure not to see each other. We absolutely loved this special moment that allowed them to wait to see each other at the aisle, but also spend a minute “together.”
Then it was time for the ceremony. Guests gathered in the upstairs of the barn for a beautiful sermon given by a family member, and cheered as Megan and Dan became husband and wife!
After the ceremony, guests were treated to a cocktail hour with lots of lawn games, while Megan and Dan took photos. Megan’s father gifted them a Jeep wrangler that he had been restoring for quite some time, which was so special, and we made sure to include that in their shots!
The night finished with dinner, some wonderful toasts, a great bonfire, a packed dance floor, and finally a sparkler send off for this newly married couple!
We loved getting to capture Megan and Dan on their big day, and were so honored to be a part of their Enchanted Barn wedding!
