Polka, craft beer, and family: Classic Wisconsin Wedding Reception


Polka, craft beer, and family: Classic Wisconsin Wedding Reception

Kayla and Adam met at a home brewing event years ago, and while their careers have taken them out west and back, when they decided to get married, they knew just what to do: A small ceremony in their beloved mountains of Colorado followed by a big shindig at Adam's family farm outside of Mineral Point. 

Nestled into the rolling hills of south central Wisconsin, the family farm served as a perfect backdrop for a day to celebrate with family and friends. As a photographer, we love it most when the locations are personal to our couples, and all night long we heard stories about life on the farm from the family and friends who attended. But we were doubly blessed with Kayla and Adam. Not only were they fun, relaxed, and looked stunning for the reception, but we got share in their love of the natural beauty of the land and the gorgeous textures of the buildings on the property. 

Craft brews were on tap, but there was plenty of Hamm's (a family favorite) as well. And a first for us: A polka band brought out all the dancers, both young and old, in the barn after the sun set. 

We spent some time doing portraits that captured the farm's charm--acres of rolling prairie bursting with fall color, a weathered machine shed, the barn converted into a dance floor, and the spectacular vistas on the back 40. We couldn't be more excited to share the day with Adam and Kayla. 

Thanks, Kayla and Adam, and we wish you all the best in your new married life together!
